Offering a picturesque riverside spot for a relaxed meal, Blueprint Café London benefits from the striking backdrop of Tower Bridge and Docklands, visible from its striking glazed balcony.

Blending fresh flavours from Scotland to Europe, the superb seasonal menu incorporates these international influences to offer deliciously simple cuisine including game dishes like rump of venison with pickled prunes, cranberries and mash to lighter dishes like skate with capers and black butter. The divine sweets on the dessert list include treats like hazelnut meringue with blackcurrants and quince ice cream or sticky toffee pudding with brown bread ice cream.

    The restaurant is in Butlers Wharf, which is a lovely part of london with lots of bars and restaurant, it's got the amazing views of the best landmarks without the hustle & bustle of tourists. The interior is light and airy, and perfect even on a drizzly day. The food that me and my mum had tasted amazing and was worth every penny, we loved it! I also was allowed the glass of cava that came the deal even though I decided not to have the 3-course set menu, very kind!

    However, there were some things that could have made the experience better. I wasn't given a steak knife with my steak meal. Also, the staff did not seem very happy to be there and were not the most friendly - which can make a massive difference.

    All in all I would return thanks to the beautiful food and an amazing view!

    A lovely welcome and very attentive service made this a treat. We are from the set menu and the beetroot, goats cheese and walnut salad was delicious. The presentation of the Shepherds Pue was great- and although tasty, was a little sweet for me. Finishing off with the lemon posset was a superb choice though!

    Interesting set menu, pleasant and attentive (but not overly so) staff. The view is amazing.

  • ((((( 5 May 2017 by Cathy Tipple from London

    Great views. Excellent service. Really delicious food. The staff were very professional and friendly. The food was very good, we went for the set menu and there was a good choice of dishes and they were all served up beautiful. There's a lovely view of Docklands one way and the city with Tower Bridge the other way. All in all a really enjoyable evening.

    Ambiente was lovely, it was a great place to start the weekend. The views are stunning. Service was good. The food was good but portions are small (£25 3 courses meal option). I was fine, but my boyfriend was still hungry.
