Rocket Restaurant in London’s Canary Wharf is exactly the smart-casual, quirkily stylish, affordable place you want in a fabulous location overlooking West India Docks. The buzzing bar with its neo-baroque décor mixed with up-to-the-minute contemporary is usually packed with a vibrant crowd that spills out onto the terrace in good weather. Upstairs, the calmer, sunlit dining room with its open kitchen and its own dedicated terrace is enormously popular too. The stone-baked pizzas with innovative and colourful combinations of toppings are big in both senses while the grills and fresh salads are just as creatively made. With every bottle under £50 and many much less than that, the wine list is not only a terrific deal, it’s also a thoughtfully created carte. Servers are on their toes and seem to do it all with a smile. Style, flavour, friendly service, great views – Rocket Restaurant in Canary Wharf has it all.
