For Irish-themed entertainment and food in comfortable surroundings, Daffodil Mulligan fits the bill. Expect sharing plates, oysters and a basement bar as you dine in the heart of Shoreditch at an establishment described as the “ultimate destination for dining, drinking and live music.”
Hawksmoor is often referred to as one of the best steak restaurants in London, beating off contenders with prime cuts of beef and a great Sunday roast. The restaurant has a laidback atmosphere, whilst the downstairs plays host to a great cocktail bar with a speakeasy vibe. The original establishment is in Spitalfields, close to where architect Nicholas Hawksmoor built Christ Church on Commercial Street.
Open from morning until late at night, Hoxton Grill is a grill, bar and lounge in the heart of Shoreditch on Great Eastern Street. A contemporary restaurant with an open kitchen, it serves American-inspired breakfasts, brunch and an all-day menu with daily specials, whilst the bar serves classic cocktails, wines and bites. With guest DJs on every weekend, this is one of Shoreditch’s most popular late-night destinations.
Voted one of the top 100 restaurants in the UK, The Boundary serves authentic French dining in a converted Victorian warehouse. Offering ‘restaurant, rooms and rooftop’, The Boundary is also a hotel and has a highly sought-after and often fully-booked weather-proof rooftop bar. One of the best places for lunch in Shoreditch, the menu features such classics as foie gras and steak tartare.
When looking for fun restaurants in Shoreditch, a visit to the Shoreditch Grind is a must.

For homely Italian food in a cosy setting, Campania's rustic restaurant, located just off Columbia Road, delivers. Serving handmade pasta alongside quality seasonal produce, this popular Southern Italian eatery even has a resident cat which you can usually find nestled asleep somewhere when it's not overseeing the waiting staff.
Situated on Redchurch Street, BRAT's menu showcases influence from the Basque region within an unpretentious vibe. Holding a Michelin star, the interior is cosy and intimate, almost as if you're in the kitchen itself, the food is rustic and cooked over an open wood fire, and the atmosphere will ensure you feel right at home.
This Indian restaurant in Spitalfields brings a whole new meaning to the word ‘intimate’.
