Winner of Best Breakfast in London as voted by Bookatable diners, 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 which offers 360-degree views of London.

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.

    We were disappointed to be offered The Brunch menu only and lunch. We were advised that this was because it was a bank holiday weekend. I reserved the table online and there was no mention of this on the web site. Please can this be addressed for future bank holidays as it is misleading otherwise.

    The food was very good, though we thought the portions could have been bigger. Note, however, that not all tables have a view and given that this is one of the biggest selling points, this is hugely disappointing. You do, of course, pay for the location and the view (if you get one), but even so, a three course lunch with a couple of drinks and coffee is very expensive. The drinks will easily double the price of the set lunch menu.
