Venue says Plateau sits atop Canada Place opposite One Canada Square tower in Canary Wharf and offers a view like no other in London.

This review is from 2013, please note that Jeremy Trehout is now head chef at Plateau – Time Out Food & Drink team, 2017

The aptly named Plateau sits on the fourth floor of Canada Place, with sensational views of Canary Wharf from its huge glass and metal façade. The interior aims to impress with iconic contemporary furniture – marble-topped white Eero Saarinen Tulip tables, matching chairs, and Arco floor lamps – but the restaurant isn’t just a designer showroom for the moneyed classes.

The beautifully presented cuisine is testament to the fact that head chef Allan Pickett takes his job very seriously, producing inspired dishes that pay more than lip service to the principle of seasonal eating. Pickett took on the role in 2010, seven years after Plateau first opened, and has maintained its high standards with the help of a very professional team – our waitress was charming and knowledgeable.

From the nicely priced menu du jour, we enjoyed a dazzlingly fresh starter of heritage tomatoes with basil cress and baby mozzarella. Fish mains saw wonderful sea trout paired with peas, broad beans and asparagus velouté, and equally tasty sea bream served on creamy mash with razor clams and roasted garlic cloves. A pastry-perfect peach tarte tatin with lavender ice-cream proved that lavender can taste as good as it smells.

Plateau says
Plateau sits atop Canada Place opposite One Canada Square tower in Canary Wharf and offers a view like no other in London, more reminiscent of the great cityscapes of New York and Tokyo.

Opt for the elegant main restaurant for contemporary French food or more informal grill. Try the latest season cocktails in the bar, or relax on one of the two outdoor terraces.

Plateau can cater for just about any event from intimate private party of eight to a standing reception of 600; from small family celebrations and company meals to glamorous product launches and weddings.

There are two elegant private dining rooms and an outdoor terrace, available for your exclusive use. For larger parties, the restaurant, or the whole of Plateau can be hired.

I often meet and entertain clients at Plateau, for me it is one of the iconic restaurants of Canary Wharf, with it's glass facade and steel contemporary structure, so emblematic of Wharf style and living. Fabulous views of Canary wharf itself and the surrounding Skyline. Try the whole seabass, fennel and salsa verde £18.00. Staff are always welcoming and pleasant with a varied seasonal menu. 


As far as I'm concerned, Timeout couldn't have got it more wrong. Dinner there last night was a five star experience. The staff were wonderfully attentive without ever being over bearing or over familiar. The food was amazing. We had wine with every course and give what we paid all up, consider it to be good value. Very happy.
