A very impressive place with high standards of food and service. From stepping into the building to departing it was a very pleasant experience. Two of us went for dinner and had the set menu at £30 for 3 tapas dishes and a cocktail per person. The staff were charming, and were happy to take time to advise or answer questions about the different dishes. Between us we had six different dishes and each was absolutely delicious. Portions were good so that we felt well fed when we finished. A good cocktail too. It was pleasant to go out onto the outdoor terrace after the meal. It is possible to have a pre- or post prandial drink from the bar there. A remarkable place all round and on my list of places worth eating at in London. One very small observation is that the background music didn't seem appropriate to the ambience or the diners - and too much base.

The restaurant entrance is on Argyll Street, opposite the Palladium. The Regent Street address is misleading. Though not unpleasant, we found the restaurant to be very noisy and as a roof top dining experience - well where you eat has a limited outlook with dormers and a barrel shaped ceiling. You can step out to a balconied area from the bar. The food is basically tapas and as such too orientated around small dishes that whilst well prepared did not provide a sufficiently filling meal. £3.50 charged for 2 small pieces of bread as a single serving and olive oil @ £1.50 to dunk this in, was I felt taking the mickey, as the course servings are small. The waiting staff were very polite and attentive and we were provided with complimentary Prosecco when we had finished our meal. Not wishing to stay for coffee, we stopped by at Claridges for this which I can wholly recommend.

We had a tasting.menu of three dishes plus a cocktail for £30 each. It was avery enjoyable experience. The food was served quickly but we were in no way rushed. The turn around on the table was 2 hours which allowed for a leisurely meal. The food itself was gorgeous. We shared 6dishes in total including a rib eye steak which melted in the mouth, a very subtly flavoured gazpacho, a dish with Iberico pork in strips on little potato cakes -yummy, white asparagus which was very clean and fresh tasting and some scallops in lime and coriander. The only tiny criticism I would make there was that the lime very slightly overpowered the scallops. We also enjoyed a lovely rice ,soft boiled egg and chorizo dish which again was divine. All in all a very enjoyable dinner -and good value. The cocktail was something with raspberry and very refreshing. Staff were friendly and unobtrusive. The presentation if the food was pretty but not fussy. Definitely recommended!

Four of us went to Aqua Nueva Wednesday evening and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - we loved the fact that we were given a table 'with a view'. Two of our group had specific dietary requirements, which were catered for in a friendly and professional manner. The food was delicious, the portions were filling, and each course was served with a short description of what we were about to eat. We also did not feel rushed to leave the table by a certain time.
