Lilly's Restaurant, Bar & Grill Review

Going to Lilly’s for the first time is like making a new friend. At once inviting and ready to accommodate, Lilly’s is a charming neighbourhood restaurant located in Wapping. On offer is a range of meals catering to the different palettes that makes this restaurant one of their regular haunts. It is an ideal place to grab a light lunch or evening meal and on weekends the brunch menu is definitely a reason to rise from a warm bed. The restaurant accommodates 110 people but the intimate, although informal atmosphere never appears too busy. It is a perfect venue for enjoying a relaxing lunch or dinner.

It is quickly apparent that the owner of Lilly’s, Simon Binder, is a seasoned professional – he founded the Café Med chain. The checked tablecloths, plum décor and stylish accessories show the thoughtful, careful planning that went into ensuring this restaurant’s warm ambience. The seating varies between heavy tables and chairs and soft, leather couches. The grill has been made part of the restaurant and is visible to all in the dining area. It’s a great distraction to watch the chef work but also heaven for those of us concerned with what happens to our food behind closed doors! Also, the bathrooms are kept spotless, a good indicator of cleanliness throughout the restaurant. Although Lilly’s is about 15 minutes from Tower Hill station, it’s a great choice for when over-crowded, over-complicated city restaurants are not the flavour of the day and the food is so worth the short journey.

The menu boasts an interesting range of starters, dishes served from the grill, mains from the oven and sandwiches and sides. We were told that diners “can’t go wrong” with a Lilly’s steak, the salt beef with vegetable and potato stew also comes highly recommended. Other notable dishes are the char grilled squid, corn fed chicken, duck confit with mash. There is also a daily fish special. The vegetarian options are limited but safe. The linguine with arrabiatta sauce is really tasty but for hardcore arrabiatta fans, a request for extra chilli may be necessary. The dessert menu should not be overlooked, even if it’s to share the organic honeycomb vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce. The wine list covers options from around the globe and has wine by the glass staring at under £4.

Complimenting the impressive food was the excellent service. Professional but not over-bearing, obvious care is taken to ensure diners have an enjoyable meal. The only smoking area of the restaurant is at the separate bar area where cocktails are made and enjoyed. The restaurant’s busiest nights are Thursday to Saturday. Children are welcome and can choose from their own junior menu.

If it’s a comfortable setting, pleasant service and good quality food you’re after, for breakfast, lunch and dinner then visit Lilly’s – it’s all there under one roof.
