Wonderful happy and relaxed atmosphere. Quite a romantic setting on the terrace as well. Friendly staff who managed to find us a table on the terrace even though I had originally booked a table inside. Amazing food.

Widely recognised as being London’s best terrace restaurant, The Waterway offers European bistro cuisine in an unrivalled canal-side setting. Summer barbecues and acoustic live music sessions make for a cool, bohemian vibe.

Championing seasonally changing menus of trusty European favourites, Waterway restaurant favourites include honey-marinated lamb, seared tuna with fennel, or the succulent signature Waterway burger with all the trimmings. Miniature favourites and wholesome smoothies are served up for kids, and indulgent puddings include hazelnut chocolate brownie with salted caramel ice cream, or summer pudding with clotted cream.

Guests can enjoy tranquil dining out on the 120-square-foot terrace, under the sheltered of expansive linen parasols. Indoors at The Waterway on Warwick Avenue, guests can dine in the polished dining room, or bask in the plush bar and lounge area.

One of West London’s favourite neighbourhood restaurants, The Waterway restaurant offers refined family-friendly dining. Warwick Avenue Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    Disappointed! I booked in advance on a hot sultry evening and brought two friends. They would not give us a table outside and the ambience , noise and heat inside was not enjoyable.

    Excellent Terrace for summer evening drinks and food. Goats cheese fritters were lovely.

    The food was well presented and well-cooked. The atmosphere was buzzing. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Prices are medium to high. Location wonderful. A very pleasant experience.

    Service is very slow. Food is alright but very overpriced

  • ((((* 3 May 2016 by Graham Parker from New York City

    The Waterway was an excellent spot for brunch, and the Great British weather chose to cooperate as well, so the Terrace was extra wonderful. The limited brunch menu was good, and all of us found things we could enjoy. Service was a fraction either rushed or slow, depending on the waiter that helped us. Minor quibble. But, great spot for families, kids and those looking for a lovely relaxed way to start the weekend.
