“Excellent food, service, atmosphere!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Amazing seafood at the corner of Regent park and Little Venice. Idyllic seating directly at a romantic canal. Perfect for a nice summer day with friends, to impress your business partners or a romantic date out. Don't miss it while in London! Try the Sea Bass or Sword Fish, just absolutely delicious!!!

Nice location on the canal, but the food was not impressive. Pretty basic for what you pay. The fish and chips was pretty standard, not worth the money.

“lovely way to spend our aniversary”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We visited the summerhouse purely by chance on 24th march 2012. We were really happy when the staff said they had a spare table. My husband had a broken collar bone and they very kindly sat us right by the canal, which gave us a fabulous view and protected his shoulder from getting bashed. We ordered 2 rib eye steaks which were lovely and cooked to perfection and a cheese board to share., The staff were really kind and professsional. Will definately visit again if in the area.

“Slightly going off the boil”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is still a good restaurant. This still is well located. But, some of the food has gone down in quality. before the mozzarella starter was the best I have ever had - proper mozzarella, very wet and falls apart. They have replaced it with cheaper standard rubbery mozz. not good.

Also when you book. You then get an email with a large number of conditions - not good. f you only have the table for a given time, they should tell you on the phone.

Would I still go there - yes.

Is it brilliant - not quite.

“Local canal side dining”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

After the disastrous start at Kateh in Warwick Place around the corner The Summerhouse was a great blessing. We arrived hungry and without a reservation and were shown to a table immediately in a busy restaurant. We ordered a couple of cold hors d'oeuvres and grilled steaks. The service was friendly and efficient, the food arrived promptly and the steaks were perfectly cooked as ordered.
