We went here for a bite to eat Tuesday 17th June (night Bob Dylan was playing in the O2. We choose to eat in the bistro section, with its casual well priced menu. By the time we left the eating area, it was packed & buzzing with great atmosphere, Bob Dylan tunes playing in the background. The food is good... More

My experience from this place was I couldn't fault it for anything. Firstly the staff, words couldn't describe how nice they were and couldn't do enough for you. The food was absolutely amazing easily one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant. The location is perfect it was only a 5 min walk from the Jurrys Inn... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the bistro at this location--referred to as "the boat restaurant" by the concierge at the Spencer Dock apartments where we were staying. The barman/ service person, Michael, was delightful in every way. The timing of service and friendly comments made for a very enjoyable evening meal. The food was hot and delicious..

I was celebrating my 30th Bday there in November. The atmosphere was way over my expectations, the food was really tasty and the service was kind. Everybody loved the place, we surely go back!

met with a group of friends on saturday night 09/11/13 before we went to the 02, initial welcome from doorman was friendly and professional, but we were dissapointed with the attitude of the irish male bar staff member, he was particularly rude to a friend when asked for a drink and pointed this out very clearly and loudly in front...

Went with friends last November and it was good value for money but this year it was so different. We phoned up to reserve a table but there was no need to as we were the only 3 couples there from 6 oclock until 7 thirty. The pre- theatre menu was very poor for 27 euros. My husband paid an... More

We went out tonight for a birthday treat, we picked Quay 16 for the novelty but did not expect such great food. Service was prompt and very pleasant and food well presented, there was a great buzz with most tables occupied. The sun setting over the water was very romantic and the air was beautifully still. I would highly recommend... More
