After a long day of meetings in Central London Chubbs and I hopped into a black cab and headed over to St Katherine’s Dock to check out one of London’s newest dog friendly restaurants, The Melusine.

Recently i have reverted back to being a pescatarian , so I was delighted to check out The Melusine, a restaurant focused on fish dishes, set in the heart of the marina in St Katherine’s Dock, a gorgeous location.

The Vibe
It has a home from home feel, with low lighting, an open kitchen, wooden decor with a modern twist, there is a cute counter that would be great to eat from if you were on your own with your pup. The playlist was also great, I had a sing song between courses!

The Staff
The team at The Melusine are very attentive and accommodating, the service was brilliant all evening.

The Menu
When i scanned through the menu I was happy to see it was short and sweet, great options including sharing plates, raw dishes and of course a great selection of fish dishes to try.

The Food
The food was great and all the dishes were cooked to perfection. Fresh tasting fish and ingredients, it was clear everything was cooked with love. There is a greek influence in the cooking and all the fish is sustainable, which is brilliant.

Chips are a love of mine and the chips here did not disappoint! They were very tasty, with rosemary and sea salt, crunchy coat and soft potato inside – dreamy! The Scallop was fantastic fresh, well seasoned and juicy, loved it. When ordering the small plates, expect a tapas portion size.

The Dessert
The chocolate tart with tahini was AMAZING! You HAVE to try it!

Dog Friendliness
If you have a big dog then let them know in advance so the Melusine can allocate you a table with enough room, they are open to all dog sizes. The temperature of the restaurant was perfect for dogs not to stuffy, nice breeze with air con.

It is an intimate restaurant, but there was enough space for Chubbs to lay down on his blanket sleep and chill. He was very cosy!

Dog treats were on offer, however they could do with an actual dog bowl for dogs visiting the restaurant, but that’s an easy addition for the Melusine to make!

Chubbs and I will be definitely visiting the Melusine again, a HUGE paws up!
