Il Bordello, Wapping, london: "Not cheap, but well worth it." Il Bordello Tip by planxty

Il Bordello, London: 3 reviews and 6 photos

  Il Bordello restaurant, Wapping, London
by planxty

Il Bordello is situated in the re-generated Docklands area, in a modern building with luxury flats above, would you believe.

The decor is modern, and the ambience is relaxed and friendly with attentive (not overpoweringly so) staff and absolutely superb food.

It's certainly not cheap, but it's a great palce to go for an occasional splurge.

Whilst preparing this page, I checked out a nuimber of restaurant reviews which were uniformly good. I pass the place on my way home every night, and it is invariably full - I can pay it no greater compliment than that.

Booking is absolutely essential at the weekends and advisable on other evenings.

Update - 12/07/2005. Just had another memorable meal here to celebrate a family occasion. On a Tuesday night, they were turning people away by eight o'clock. the standard is still excellent.

By the way, if you're into such things, apparently Rod Stewart was spotted there a couple of weeks ago.

Favorite Dish: The specials change daily, depending on what's good in the markets, and are always good.

Of the standard menu, I like the seafood risotto. It's creamy and absolutely bursting with all manner of good, fresh seafood.

Update 12/07/2005. I may have to revise my opinion. The seafood pizza almost defies description it is so tasty.

Directions: Come out of Wapping Tube, turn left and walk about two hundred yards and it's on the opposite side of the road.
