First Edition Restaurant and Bar


A surprising restaurant tucked in to a quiet corner of London’s Canary Wharf, First Edition is considered by many to be the best independently run eatery in the area. First Edition’s nautical theme – all deckchair striped curtains, white washed wood and anchor motifs – sets it apart from the many loft-style brasseries in the area. The curtained booths allow for absolute intimacy while dining, perfect for romancing couples, however the remainder of the dining room has a bustling vibe which will appeal to others. Strong on fish and seafood, the First Edition menu is varied and vast with traditional style comfort dishes served alongside the more elegantly refined dishes influenced by French cuisine.

The wine could have done with being poured from a great height into...more

I went for a business lunch - my tuna was overdone, but our food was ok. Nothing special tho.

I think they must have been training new staff as the waiting on girls were slow and inattentive.

Could be great and it should clean up, given its location.more

One of the better bars in Canary Wharf.

Staff are good and are happy either to provide table service or for you to go to the bar. Get's busy on Thurs & Fri but still less rammed and slightly more civilized than most places in the wharf.

Only potential downside is the numbers of BarCap senior management that always seem to crop-up here, but as long as you don't mind making sure you don't...more
