The best of ho­tel din­ing

The Wharf - - Front Page -

Here are a se­lec­tion of eater­ies lo­cated within ho­tels lo­cally if you wish to dine then sleep it off..

CA­NARY WHARF

Quadrato Restau­rant Ca­nary River­side Plaza, West­ferry The only ho­tel on the Ca­nary Wharf es­tate boasts Quadrato, a restau­rant, bar and ter­race of­fer­ing din­ing it claims matches its five-star chops. Un­doubt­edly good value if you’re go­ing for the set menu options, there’s some sug­ges­tion its loss of the finer touches fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of the Four Sea­sons brand is re­flected in the food.

ISLE OF DOGS

Bokan Novo­tel Ca­nary Wharf, Marsh Wall The un­doubted ris­ing star of the ho­tel din­ing (and ar­guably the whole lo­cal restau­rant scene) is spread over the 37th, 38th and 39th floors of this land­mark tower just south of Ca­nary Wharf. It de­liv­ers a heady mix of heights, views and care­fully cu­rated dishes de­signed to please fine din­ers and those look­ing for a snack with their Dock­lands-in­spired cock­tails alike. Cin­na­mon Hilton Lon­don Ca­nary Wharf Al­most un­avoid­able for those walk­ing reg­u­larly over the South Quay Bridge from the es­tate, this restau­rant is known for good ser­vice but an un­der­pow­ered menu and av­er­age af­ter­noon tea. Per­haps in need of a re­fit.

WEST IN­DIA QUAY

Man­hat­tan Grill Mar­riott West In­dia Quay Promis­ing some of the best steaks in the area, Man­hat­tan is re­ally all about the meat and the view across the dock to Ca­nary Wharf. De­cent cuts and well cooked, but din­ers should be pre­pared to pay a pre­mium.

GREEN­WICH PENIN­SULA

Penin­sula Restau­rant Lon­don In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal – The O2 Crack­ing ser­vice and pretty dishes com­bine with art­ful cook­ing in this ho­tel’s flag­ship din­ing room. But don’t ex­pect it to be cheap. Bud­get for the tast­ing menu at £72 per head.

ROYAL DOCKS

Dock­lands Bar And Grill Crowne Plaza Lon­don Dock­lands Ev­ery­thing about this con­tem­po­rary spot lo­cated close to the Ex­cel cen­tre is de­signed to give vis­i­tors a flavour of the his­toric area. Ex­pect Euro­pean and Bri­tish clas­sics in­clud­ing fish and chips, ox­tail tortellini and the usual steaks and burg­ers.
