3. Shrimpy'sFormerly a disused filling station, Shrimpy's offers up posh diner grub with a 'Calexican' (California/Mexican) twist on the banks of the Regent's Canal in King's Cross. Londoners flock to this trendy restaurant to sample everything from Corn Chowder to Ceviche to their (now infamous) Soft-shell Crab Burger. Enjoy views of the canal while chowing down on the tuna tostadas and sipping margaritas with a hint of chilli. Blending starchy modern decor with a vintage twist, this restaurant should definitely be next on your list in London. Prices average around £8 for a starter and £16 for a main course.

5. River CafeWith the Check-in-London HQ located in Hammersmith, we couldn't have a list of the best waterside restaurants in London without mentioning the iconic River Cafe which is situated less than a mile away. With riverside views and modern Italian cuisine, it is no wonder that it is a very popular choice with both Londoners and visitors to the city. The River Cafe is where some of the top chefs in London (including Jamie Oliver) have cut their teeth and, though very difficult to get a table here and quite expensive, it is perfect for a special occasion or a treat. Pasta dishes or 'Primi' can cost anything from £16-£21 while main courses or 'Secondi' can cost up to £43.
Address: Thames Wharf, Rainville Road, London W6 9HA.
