London Travel Guide: Eat at The River Cafe

The River Cafe

An oldy but a goody...

I have wanted to visit this restaurant for a very long time after hearing excellent review, after excellent review, so when I popped along for lunch I was not disappointed in the slightest!  It is relaxed and it is cool, with the glass walled room overlooking the lawns and on to the river, I could have stayed all day long sipping bellini's and eating the simple and uncomplicated food.   It has been described as a canteen for the well-heeled and this is after all the restaurant where Jamie Oliver learnt his craft.

Most gripes with this restaurant is with the prices.  With starters from £15 and a main course costing between £30 - £40, it is on the pricey side.  However, in return you get impeccable Italian food in the surroundings of effortless style.  A trendy warehouse vibe which compliments the relaxed feel of the restaurant.  

The army of chefs in the open kitchen add an extra buzz to the dining experience, with the infamous domed fire oven on display.  

The menu changes daily so here is a link to today's offering.  Yum. 

The River Cafe = Satisfaction pretty much guaranteed.   We love.
