Smollensky's (Canary Wharf)

Smolenskys is a bit higher up the price scale than some of the restaurants in Docklands, however you certainly get what you pay for…. This menu offers delicious meals that never falter. Certain things always remain on the menu such as catch of the day sold at market price and the delicious burgers. Being a vegetarian I often have trouble with choice in pricey restaurants but smolenskys has many Veggie options, all delicious and well thought out.

The service is usually great! As place is not often completely full.

Only negative I have is that most dishes don’t come with full veg or salad and potatoes, they have to be ordered separately from the side order mune, this can really hike up the bill!

Wine choices is excellent, did Christmas dinner here 2 years on the trot and both times absolutely loved it!

Can’t believe bad rewiews for this place, I completely disagree!

La Tasca (Covent Garden)

La Tasca – Docklands

To me La Tasca is one of the best places to eat in Docklands, I love its ambiance, and true Spanish style, when I arrive after a long day at work I feel like I could be somewhere else, a Spanish taverna somewhere far away.

The prices are extremely reasonable the tapas selection is extensive and delicious, being a vegetarian I often struggle with choice in restaurants, but not here.

We are always treated kindly here, sometimes at busy periods you can wait a while for service at your table, but worth the wait….

Summer dinners out on terrace with views of Canary wharf and the dock, also fabulous!

Will return again and again and again
