I happened to find this place while walking around in Wapping. Looks like an old factory on the outside. Inside you can still see the steam pipes. In the evening the setting is magical. Excellent food and inspired desserts. Will definitely go back.

I liked the food but I loved the interiors more. Industrial, raw in some places, feels very alternative and fancy at the same time. It is of course a matter of taste but i think that if you like interesting places thes is definitely the one you should go to. Enjoy!

I googled a few ideas for first dates and quirky restaurants in London. The Wapping Project came up. When we arrived it was fairly quiet. All the staff seem interested. Which is something I love. The lady who greeted us. The girl who took our drinks order. The guy who brought the bread over! And the smile from the chefs... More

I have dined here possibly ten times over the years. Today was as good, if not better than other occasions. Two attentive and friendly waitresses served us. Copious warm crusty bread with olive oil on arrival whilst we were deciding from the small but interesting menu, excellent starters ( goats cheese, octopus, ham,egg & piccalilli) excellent mains (pork, lemon sole,...

The reviews are pretty accurate! Expensive for what you get. To be fair the staff we met were nice and delightful, I just felt ripped off!

What a shocking establishment. Next weekend they close their doors, and I am not surprised one bit. We made a booking weeks ago only to be informed they can no longer take us. This was only based on the fact that i had some email exchange with one very rude Marta (please change carriers this isn't your thing and save... More

Extremely rude events manager, by the looks of it the owner sets the rudeness standard for the other staff from the other reviews. It is a pity as it once was a really good local restaurant with a great location and a strong art presence. We tried to book recently for a family occasion and was told we would have... More

Go there for the cool atmosphere, but eat somewhere else. The cocktail was not done properly. The food was forgettable; however, the octopus starter was decent. I wouldn't go back.

Great venue, inside is just so amazing to see, especially the gallery section. Was not impressed with the menu or the quality of the food, the steak was not cooked as required and was tough, the waitress forgot to bring any beer to the table once ordered, then included a service charge which i asked to be removed. Asked to... More
