a hidden gem, not sure of the food as we used to come for some coffee and check whats new among the projects and installations, never full of people so we usually had a chance of enjoying ourselves with some drinks. Welcoming staff,original design (used to be a factory). Its really sad if they really closed down..

The Wapping Project is (was) a very very special place thanks to the here criticized Jules Wright. She has had a most wonderful vision and implemented that where no one would have thought it possible. She supports and supported many young artists and has created one of the most amazing dining experiences in London...... If you come to her place... More

Just noticed that this page doesn't mention the fact that this restaurant is unfortunately now closed. It was a good place to eat, with decent (if slightly pretentious) food served in an amazing setting. The building has allegedly been taken over by a sympathetic landlord, so is likely to re-emerge as either a restuarant, hotel, or retail place.

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
