The best waterside restaurants in London
A diner in a cleverly redesigned King's Cross petrol station. Fill up on burgers and other US-inspired food while you admire the view of the Regent's Canal

Lounge in the extensive beer garden overlooking the Thames, where many can be seen eating, drinking, and being merry.
This restaurant, just off Ladbroke Grove, has a terrace next to the Grand Union Canal. Striking design from Tom Dixon provides the backdrop for innovative cooking.
It may be tricky to reach, but this Docklands gastropub is well worth the detour. The waterside terrace is where you want to be when the weather is fair.
Choose from the Modern European menu at either the brasserie or the more formal restaurant, and take in the sweeping views of the Thames.
Stein's is a Bavarian beerhouse that doesn't rely solely on its excellent riverside location to draw in the punters. The German menu is a good foil for the free-flowing German beers.
The outdoor tables at this Italian restaurant are a brilliant vantage point from which to take in the Thames. There are few better places to enjoy a meal on sunny days.
Just off the Kingsland Road, but right on the Regent’s Canal is the inauspicious setting for a café from food writer Lori De Mori and her team.
29 Westferry Circus, E14 8RR (7987 9494/www.gauchorestaurants.co.uk).
The riverside terrace at this Argentinian steakhouse chain’s Docklands branch has amazing sunset views over the water.
