Take a break from the bustle of the centre and grab a table with a view to watch the world go by. There’s fantastic food and drink being served outside - whether you’re after morning coffee, a light lunch or end-of-the-week sundowners.
Make the most of the cool breeze away from the buzz of Bluewater on the balcony of Côte Brasserie, where you can indulge in the flavours of France. Splash out with a spritz aperitif and a dish from the new spring menu, which will whisk you away to Normandy, the markets of Paris, the Cote d'Azur and beyond. Bon voyage!
This stylish pit stop is great for quick antipasti small plates or romantic dinners indulging in the latest Italian specials. Pull up a pew while you take in the view of Bluewater's scenic lakes, parks and nature trails.
Don’t forget, you can take away delicious foodie treats from the deli too, to make a picnic to remember.
Pizza Express (The Village)
PizzaExpress is the perfect pit stop for the warmer months where you can get a taste of sunshine with the spring menu, which includes a special pizza wrap and salad meal deal - perfect for lunch. Fine pizzas and pastas still take centre stage here, with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options now too.
The team might not be able to guarantee sunshine, but they can offer great Italian food served on the terrace on the water’s edge. Choose from pizza, pasta and risotto to salads and indulgent desserts. Don't miss the new salmon and king prawn hanging skewer, or pan-fried sea bass - delish.
It doesn't get much better than a burger, fries and a cold beer or a thick milkshake on a sunny day, so a trip to Byron’s outdoor terrace is an absolute must for this summer. With options for veggies, vegans and meat-lovers on the menu (plus mini versions for the kids too!), everyone's catered for at Byron.
Grab and go
Don't forget, there are lots of brilliant eateries offering take outs to choose from, so you can enjoy first-class food on the go. Try Leon, Ori Caffe and The Real Greek for flavours inspired by the fresh Mediterranean diet; Shawa and Slim Chickens for meaty deliciousness; or Joe and The Juice and The Shake Lab for thirst-quenching deluxe drinks.
