Failed quest for nostalgia

by   platinum reviewer (215)

Jan 2016

What is it with the past, why do we always feel a need to return there? Only a certain sort of person, surely, would decide to call their restaurant (or mini-chain) canteen. Prior to dining here at a friend’s suggestion, I looked up said word in the dictionary. Accordingly, canteen in extended use refers usually to ‘a refreshment room at a factory, school or like.’ I have never worked in a factory and left school over 20 years’ ago, so why would I want to return to such a place now? Shiny Canary...

Can-Not

Oct 2013

Cannot manage a half-empty restaurant on a Saturday lunchtime to save their lives. We stopped off with our two young children for lunch, the place looks light and airy, location is cool, food unspectaular British favourites that obviously err on the expensive side due to the location. But the service…unbelievable really. Never managed to produce a high-chair, drinks took an age to arrive and were knocked over our table when they did, a Bloody Mary that tasted like the whole bottle of Tabasco went...

I love Canteen. I go there fairly often as it's convenient and reliable, I love the clean, honest food, the servers are always a delight and the price is right. I was reminded of what a treasure it is when I had the opportunity to visit twice in the past week. In the first instance, a colleague and I dropped by for a quick dinner quite late in Canary Wharf. When we asked hesitantly whether the kitchen was still open the hostess smiled and said “of course!” in a way that implied, for you, we're always...

Well it does what it says on the tin…it's a canteen. This is a place people stop off at in between shopping or that have kids. It's not brilliant …All day breakfast in good if you're hungover…eggs benedict good… They attempt to offer home made Pies…(they may well be so…but they sometimes forget to put the filling in )… The do cater for kids which is good… they do fish n chips…and sandwiches etc … .Service is good .. it's clean and It;s not that bad…but it's not a proper canteen with proper canteen...

Not having visited a Canteen before, I decided it was high time to see whether this latest addition to the Canary Wharf restaurant set was any good. Feeling a distinct need to eat some stodgy food on a cold and grey day, a colleague and I went down to try our luck at this usually busy restaurant. Luckily we were early enough and immediately eyed up the menu as we sat down. The restaurant is very light and airy but seemingly lacks any atmosphere, it is in its very essence a canteen, so you can't...

    The word “Canteen” has never brought to my mind a place that would be either pleasant or visited unless forced to – Eastern Europe has truly ruined much of this universe for me. Even the connotations in English aren’t that good – it was then interesting to see how a chain would hope to turn that around.
