Description: Dining at Canteen is as much about the aesthetic experience as the menu ��� both of which showcase the best of British produce and craftsmanship. Located in London���s Canada Square, between the Canary Wharf DLR and tube stations, Canteen is a chic, unfussy space dedicated to casual all-day dining and Canary Wharf workers stop by for coffees, elevenses, sandwiches, freshly cooked pies and cakes as well as hearty British meals. The discerning interior design is furnished with a 50s palette of muted grass greens, sky blue, red and sunny yellow paired with down-to-earth materials like oak, cork and tweed. Business and child friendly, Canteen is a stylish choice for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

“All day breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Lovely "English" food, best thing for me is the all-day breakfast! Service prompt and friendly - I did go at a quiet moment, so don't know what its like on a busy day.

“Overpriced rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Staff were all over the place, there doesn't seem to be a table management system.
Restaurant was extremely cramped, was almost touching the guy at the next table beside me.
Food took an age and a half to come, and was crap - no other word to describe it.
To top it off, they have the audacity to charge a 15% service charge! Unbelievable.
Do not visit.

“Pretty good but a bit overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

This is a nice enough restaurant but its position near Canary Wharf means that prices are a bit on the pricy side. I had a really nice pie though! Service very good - friendly and attentive
