    Made a reservation in advance believing it to be in the restaurant but turns out it was in the bar (which was fine) except the menu was just bar snacks when we were expecting dinner - there was no option to order from the dinner menu so our family had chicken wings and a portion of fries for our Saturday night meal - this should be much clearer on the website/open table when booking. I cannot find reference to a bar menu on the website. Not acceptable and far too late to find another restaurant as an alternative.

    We had a great lunch at Charlotte Quay following a tour of the Windmill Recording studio. Beautiful views of the water and good service. We had the mussels and chargrilled gambas. Both dishes were excellent. The gambas dish was really unique and a true standout. Highly recommend this restaurant!

    Lovely panoramic views by the waterfront. We were first put off by crowds of drinkers outside the building, as we thought the place would be hectic. But inside the atmosphere was cozy and relaxing. We were greeted by friendly staff, who looked after us well. We had the pre-theatre menu, my colleague enjoyed the Onion soup, the Burrata was very tasty. We both had the braised featherblade with rocket salad and baby potatoes. The meat was tender and delicious. Followed by bread and butter pudding, very tasty. I would definitely go back again and recommend. Overall a very positive experience.

    A charming restaurant and bar located just a few minutes from the Docklands. The view at night is beautiful and sets the atmosphere. The restaurant has a small offer of plates and platter which makes it perfect for dinner between friends or as a couple. Highly recommended.

    We went here for our anniversary and it was amazing. We arrived at 17:00 for a pre theater menu before going to 3Arena. It’s a 12 min walk from there, which was perfect to let the food settle before the concert. :)

    I’ve always loved my meals at Charlotte Quay so booked for a pre theatre dinner on Sunday 25th Feb 2024. When I was booking on Open Table it did say high stool only but I thought this was in the restaurant. When we arrived it was only the bar that was opened and we were advised that the restaurant doesn’t open on Sunday. The menu was similar but I thought quite pricey for what you could describe as bar food. I didn’t like the ambience of the bar so wouldn’t recommend Sunday dining.

    Great spot right on the water - food and service were great. It was a bit noisy when we arrived but there were several big matches which probably contributed to that as there were a couple of large groups and it quietened down after they'd left. Bar was also lovely

    Menu somewhat limited and overall a tad expensive. Featherbalde was tasty but not very warm. Starters expensive. Mistake made with bill - wine chosen was not wine delivered. They did refund the difference.

    Food basic and over priced for quality. Food menu needs work. Starters avg 16 so would expect a better taste than 2 dishes we had. Fatty steak was 42. Seasoned well but no fillet. Worst meal we have had in a long time. 52 for a bottle of rjoja Staff were the only saving grace here. They were all very pleasant and friendly and could not rate them high enough, it is a pity the food and prices for the quality we received, let them down. Sorry to say we wont be back.

    Lovely friendly staff in a gorgeous setting. The restaurant is gorgeously fitted out. Food was really great (gambas entree was divine and the sea bass exquisite). My husband ordered the chicken and it was sadly a bit on the bland side. We had the pre-theatre menu so maybe next time would order fro the larger a la carte menu. All said and done, would recommend!

    Lovely area for a restaurant, very atmospheric. Pleasant surroundings...the tables are all in a row and quite close, though. The staff are excellent, so helpful and pleasant and accommodating. Good value on the Early Bird Menu but we opted for the A la Carte. I had gamba and for main course the duck. Both were lovely but the duck was really delicious. All in all, a tasty meal.
