Offering 360-degree views of London, Aqua Shard serves refined British cuisine within western Europe’s tallest building. A centrepiece bar showcases freshly-muddled cocktails, while floor-to-ceiling glass envelops this spectacular dining space.

Premium produce is sourced from across the UK to make up the Aqua Shard menu, like meat from the celebrated Ginger Pig butchers, fish from south-west-coast day boats, and herbs and leaves from farms in nearby Bermondsey. Luxurious flavours include Longhorn dry-aged beef sirloin with roasted bone marrow, or roasted halibut with cockles and grilled langoustines.

Nestled within Aqua Shard in London, a 3-storey atrium bar offers a lengthy drinks list, and a host of enticing signature cocktails. Sample the almondy Battenberg martini, or an indulgent Devonshire cream cup.

Enjoy London's ultimate treat in the aptly-named ‘Tea Wing’: Aqua Shard’s contemporary British afternoon tea. Dine in the stunning triple-height glass atrium at this restaurant in The Shard, and sample a selection of sumptuous finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones served with Jersey clotted cream and homemade jams, and innovative cakes and sweet treats.

Aqua Shard restaurant also offers a mouth-watering breakfast menu, spanning from wholesome fruit, grain and seed-based dishes, through to a gourmet full English. Featuring freshly-squeezed orange juice and warm pastries, or decadent lobster eggs Benedict, Aqua Shard was voted the best restaurant for breakfast in London by Bookatable diners.

Found on the 31st floor, Aqua Shard restaurant offers Square Meal-recommended dining within one of London’s most iconic landmarks. London Bridge stations are a 2-minute walk away.

    Great location of course, set menu was fine but pricey for what it was, reflecting the location, novlty, views of course.

    Set Lunch £36, surprised that we got a roll and butter included, as sea bream came with only a few sprigs of sea beard forcing you to purchase a side of Potatoes and a veg.
    Stek was tougth, and the toast was tough and not crisp, snails and chanterelles were covered in a green emulsion, not metioned on the menu, the purpose being not to add to the taste but to hide how few snails & chanterelles there were.
    Suggest paying for the public viewing gallery and eating elsewhere.

    Lovely environment and good service. Unfortunately the seabream dish was rather over oily.

  • ((((( 17 January 2017 by Andrei Bogdan from London

    It was perfect. Dish sizes were great, not too little, not too much. Staff was always taking care of us. And because was a special event they even brought a celebration dish which was on the house. Thank you for everything. It's my 4th time there and I'm getting more and more impressed.
