The Cloister

Casual & creative. With a French and European twist.

Where classic dishes inspired by French and European style cooking, with a modern, creative touch, meet today’s desire for lighter, healthier food. All in a casual, fun, hotspot, with illuminated wine cases full of old and new world wines and specialty cocktails which augment an already exceptional meal. Where sunlight flows during the day and sunsets offer spectacular views over the river from table, bar or banquette seating. And where you’ll find something to delight your taste buds, thanks to local ingredients, flavors and dishes from around the world, prepared with a French and European twist. Join us for a memorable brunch, lunch, a drink at the bar, or a cozy supper. You will leave wishing you could take the Chef and his team home with you.
