Created, prepared and served on board

Bateaux London, the original and best restaurant on the river Thames has been running since 1992. For nearly 25 years our team of chefs, operations and service specialists have been committed to delivering innovative, delicious and stunningly presented food to our guests. We are an exciting restaurant experience combining spectacular sights and entertainment to rival some of London's most celebrated restaurants.

All food served on-board is freshly prepared on our boats and cooked to order. Our two vessels are the only ones on the Thames equipped with on-board galley kitchens and this is something we are very proud about.
