This bistro is a wonderful place to expand one's culinary horizons! The menu is eclectic, with many items which would invite tasting simply for their descriptions. There are ample choices for most palates; the desserts are divine!

I notice you wrote your review on Valentines Day. Just an added note that was the day Blackfriars celebrated 21 years of serving the London community with food from the heart!! More

Blackfriars is a little off the beaten path in every sense of the phrase. Although conveniently located, it stands alone as a fine dining destination in the historic Blackfriars' neighbourhood. The menu too stands alone with its creative offerings of exquisitely prepared, often locally sourced food. Brunch, lunch or dinner - you won't be disappointed. Want a drink with that?... More

Eggs Bombay at Blackfriars... tastes as good as it looks... nine kinds of fruit, quinoa, poached eggs, Thai curry sauce. Blackfriars is the best!

We had a fabulous dinner here last night: squash soup, taboulli, pork tenderloin. The dessert menu had many offerings, many without chocolate which some of us can't eat, but we were full. We will return!

Dropped in hoping to get a table of which we were successful to our delight. The place was full but the service and meal was excellent. Will definitely be coming here again. I would recommend making a reservation if you plan on going for Sunday brunch.

Yes the chefs do an amazing job with the eggs Benedict. If you like salmon the Florentine is also a winner. Thank you for taking a chance on a table. The summers are a bit easier for seating but in the winter months Blackfriars is the spot to warm up your Sunday mornings! Try our hot chocolate with Brandy, Chocolate... More

First time going to Blackfriars. Not sure how I missed this restaurant. Sunday morning brunch requires reservations and it is worth the planning ahead. Enjoyed eggs benedict over duck confit followed by a shared bread pudding. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Prices reasonable and some interesting options~will be back.

Tastes to treasure! We thoroughly enjoy the regular fare here but it's the pleasure of the chef's unique flavour tweaks on daily specials that keep us coming back for more. You need to find this delightful wee gem tucked away and off the busy thoroughfares between Wharncliffe and The Thames River. Like us, you'll be ever so glad you did!

Thank you for finding us and letting others know that it is worth the search! Blackfriars is so fortunate to have such a talented team of chefs. In fact they are always willing to " tweak " a meal to make it perfect for each individual guest. More
