Boasting one of London’s most exclusive settings and a rooftop bar, contemporary Spanish restaurant aqua nueva sits on top of the former Dickins & Jones department store. The Robert Angell-designed interior mirrors Spanish culture, with ornate black and white mosaic floors running throughout, and a glimmering copper-coloured vaulted ceiling giving a nod to the famous sherry casks of Jerez.

Its rooftop terrace offers breathtaking views across the city skyline, and is the perfect setting for one of the colourful cocktails prepared by the mixologists. The ‘Inspired by Spain’ cocktail menu complements the food menu, alongside a range of aqua classics.

Spanish recipes and tapas classics are given innovative tweaks at aqua nueva near Oxford Circus. Head Chef Yahir Gonzalez presents a menu of small plates inspired by the culinary heritage and innovation on Spain, offering a flexible, seasonal dining experience. Guests can also enjoy a moreish range of bar snacks all day.

    The food was excellent!!
    The service was so bad we didn't pay the discretionary service charge.
    The waiters were unorganised, leaned over when serving food, came up multiple times mid-mouthful to ask how the food was.
    We were rushed despite having the table for 2hrs and asking for the food to be slowed down. We were in and out in 70mins which was a shame as we were celebrating my parents last night in London. The venue was not crowded with a line of people so there was no need to rush us out of there.
    The food was excellent but the service really let this restaurant down.

    A brilliant meal. The food was fantastic, although the sorbet wasn't for me, it was nice tasting food that wasn't just bland. The staff are very attentive and polite. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Great location, excellent service and food. Cocktails were a bit over priced and portion sizes could have been a little larger.

    Good food and atmosphere but portions very small, especially the main course!

    The staff were among the best I've come across. The food was amazing anf the rooftop terrace was the cherry on the cake...beautiful.

    Arrived at 19:05 for 19:30 reservation. Registered our arrival with hostess and sat in bar for a drink. At 19:20 I reminded a hostess that we had a reservation and were ready for our table. Waited in bar area. At just before 19:30 I spoke to a different hostess who showed us to the table and then informed us that the set menu offer only runs to 19:30 so we would need to order immediately. 3 courses from the set menu served and eaten within 42 minutes. Very small portions and very salty main course. Churros overcooked. Cocktail was good.

    Very poor value for money.

    I would not go there again . Below average food ,very loud crowds, worn out decor. I had the calamari for main and it looked and tasted as if a was in a fast food chain. They were chewy and definitely not sufficient for a main , which on this occasion ok as I did not eat them . The only highlight was the stuff who were attentive . Very disappointing.

    It was not as good as I expected. It wasn't terrible - just not up to the standards I would expect of the Aqua chain. The menu for Feast of London wasn't what was advertised - we had chosen it because the Feast menu was different to their standard set menu so we're expecting a bit different. Unfortunately the Feast menu we got was exactly the same as the set menu. The starters and main were nice. The dessert - churros - was undercooked. Disappointing. Portion sizes actually weren't a problem and felt full by the end. Service was as expected given it was quite busy. Staff were friendly and polite.
