The Waterway


Situated on the bank of the Grand Union Canal, Maida Vale's The Waterway is an elegant yet chilled-out restaurant that serves fresh and modern European food. A spacious outside area which has been voted the best terrace in London overlooks the beautiful canal, and is a fantastic place for food or drinks during the summer season. Out on the terrace, they equally offer a light grill menu, a template for alfresco food. 

During the winter however, guests can enjoy the warm and cosy inside area, fitted with a fireplace and home to a number of live performances from talent in the local area. A vast drinks menu, they offer a range of international beers, a detailed and finely selected wine menu and a great range of cocktails. 

Child-friendly and easy-going, it's ideal for all occasions, whether you're avoiding the cold in the winter or enjoying the occasional sunshine in the summer.
