Being a guest now for a couple of times would recommend going you will not regret it. Chef Joseph Albina is very talented in blending in surprising and interesting taste to the dishes ,the 'look & feel' of these dishes it's almost a journey into the mind of the Chef. Our Dinner was beautifully composed - the flavours just 'burst... More

Lovely view, amazing food what else do you need for a Saturday lunch? The place is not pretentious, the choice is limited but the dishes are executed to perfection. I highly recommend the ham hock terrine (the piccalilli is to die for) the roast cod (flavour I never experienced before) and the panna cotta (yummy) And the staff is lovely,... More

I'm originally from the States (been here a few years now) so I'm tough to impress when it comes to service but Blueprint Cafe was excellent. I reserved a table by the windows for a birthday dinner and they were quick and helpful. I had purchased a small birthday cake from a bakery and asked if they could bring it... More

Our daughter reserved this table for us and we had a perfect evening. The service was superb so helpful and attentive without being over the top. The balance was just right. Food was excellent and I will go back again. Really good views of London at night.

We've heard that the restaurant has a good reputation and decided to give it a go at last. I will tell you know, the reputation needs urgent update! After booking well in advance and reguesting window table the restaurant couldn't accommodate the request only because... it was empty!? Ok, few tables for the whole evening. The service was non existing... More

Went here for lunch a few weeks back - on a Friday - and food was excellent. The most notable thing though was how quiet it was - we were the only table - at least up until around 1.15pm. It is not very noticeable from the outside - and the 'cafe' in the name could be a bit deceptive... More

They are a sister restaurant to pont de la tour and the bar and grill, so we were expecting a certain level of service. Our server was not very knowledgeable and clearly hasn't done this job in a high-level restaurant for a long time. I am not a big steak eater but decided to have the bavette - I asked... More

We enjoyed the delicious prix fixe menu at Blueprint Cafe which changes from day to day. The owner of the flat we rented recommended going there for more of a fine dining experience. The cauliflower soup and the salted cod croquettes were tasty starters. We also enjoyed the chicken and leek pie, the baked cod, and the bavette steak as... More

What an incredible experience this was! From the moment we entered the restaurant we were treated like royalty. The General Manager Charlie was absolutely fantastic, extremely welcoming, gave us the best table in the place.
