Perfect location, with great view on the canal. Food was very good and service very friendly. I can only recommend the cocktails
Lovely setting, great staff, buzzy atmosphere and good cocktails but poor food. Menu trying very hard but nothing complimented the other on the plate of my main course. I had the cod and left most of it on my plate. Pity as it would put me off coming back.
Great service, lots of Covid safety, plenty of space for everyone. Wonderful outdoor seating, and the food, my god the food. Always a surprise with how incredibly good it is! Charlotte Quay is a great, hidden gem!
What an enjoyable evening added to by the friendly welcome on entering and continued by Mark at our table. We were having an Italian evening with Campari spritzer & Montepulciano. The beautiful sunny evening added to the enjoyment. Great food served with a smile.
Never tasted food as good in my life! Every plate was better than the last. The cocktails are made to perfection. Nice and strong but no loss of taste. After dinner we sat on the deck chairs by the water. The service was pretty bad from then on so we got the bill and left. Overall a wonderful restaurant and will definitely be back.
Great outdoor dining with friendly and helpful staff.
Fantastic location. Great service by a wonderful team. Food is varied and great quality. Highly recommended.
We had a table for brunch with a great view! Service was great all the staff super friendly and professional! Food was very tasty and of course the Mimosas 2 for 1 during brunch was an excellent bonus!! We will be back again for sure!!
Lovely food and great service
No place better for a sunny Saturday brunch and beers
Beautiful outdoor space, right on the water, food, cocktails and service were excellent!
Food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Nice and quick. Moretti went down particularly well. Bish bash bosh
Great location, nice place, good food. Guys salt & pepper should always be at the table. Service maybe a bit to ignorant especially when we asked for bread for the table, it almost felt like a big deal .
Excellent service, delicious food and amazing atmosphere. I booked it to celebrate my birthday and had a great time!
Absolutely brilliant meal and service. Will be back ASAP
First time dining here but definitely won’t be the last.
The food was superb, the ambiance was great and the staff could not have been nicer.
Really gorgeous food and great service. Would definitely recommend
Nice place, easier found through Opentable app than through google maps.
We’ve been offered to have a drink outside first, and then were brought inside to dine.
Starters - crab starter (5/5) , Burrata dish (4/5) - it was a little oily, which made the dish quite fat.
Mains - grilled fillet of cod with mussels (4/5), and steak (4/5) - both dishes very nice, good flavours , meet & fish both cooked to perfection. Steak comes with potatoes, and fish doesn’t have much on the side, so you might want to take something additional.
Dessert - chocolate tart (5/5) and peach with merengue (5/5) - amazing deserts, very tasty and great combination of different flavours.
Would highly recommend!
Amazing view, Amazing food, Amazing service!
Beautiful location, good music.
Food wasn't great, the bread was burnt and the smash avocado looked old. It could have been only a bad morning for them.
Definitely will give it another chance.
Beautiful food and excellent service. Music was also great. Will definitely be back
Absolutely fantastic scenery and food. Service was great and the atmosphere was energetic, customers ranging from various different backgrounds and ages made the atmosphere even better
Really nice to our dog, thank you!
We loved everything about our visit. Food fabulous, staff attentive. Perfect evening.
10/10, great evening & great food. Staff very accommodating.

Such a nice location with lovely food
Simply amazing! Our waiter was just so helpful and nice. Happy to see you guys open again! See you soon.
Excellent food, friendly staff we will return
Lovely outdoor dining experience! Even in rainy weather we didn't feel a drop, and the heaters were perfect temp. Delicious food and lovely ambience by the water. Great friendly service too!
We've tried a number of cocktails which were all excellent, got a recommendation for a starter from staff, which was also very very good, but what truly put the entire meal over the top, was the dessert. The incredible chocolate tart with hazelnut ice cream and the peaches and marangue.. unbelievably delicious!
Fantastic food and a wonderful sever made the evening perfect
I didn’t enjoy the food, the quality wasn’t great and some of the dishes didn’t taste fresh and seemed like were from the day before. In hindsight I should have flagged this to the waiter. I didn’t eat that much, but I actually felt quite ill after eating the seafood dish. I like the setting and there is a nice vibe, but I don’t rate the food
They did not apply the social distance rule. Extremely crowded. People were walking around without a mask but I have to notice that the food was good.
After lockdown it was great to come Charlotte Quay. Brilliant team of Anne Marie and Mandy with cheerful professionalism, stunning water views, really fresh and delicious food, great cocktails and wine list made a relaxing, beautiful evening. Definitely coming back
Really liked the food there and the service was very impressive. The staff really took great care of us.
Absolutely amazing great staff food and service
Delicious food, excellent service and a beautiful location!
