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.

    The entire experience was amazing, very special. Fantastic views, food and service

  • (((** 23 March 2017 by Pam Ullstein from London

    Fantastic view that takes your breathe away
    Over zealous and too many serving staff, always at the table wanting to know what we wanted, was everything alright, and stretching across us.
    An inter change of cheese for a pudding on the set menu, because one guest was diabetic was allowe, but the order for calvados never reached the table but appeared on the bill. This was of course was removed when the error pointed out.
    We were celebrating a special birthday so our request to move tables to a more favourable window seat was facilitated (a window view having been requested when the booking made) but request to move to a less formal area for coffee was turned down. The staff member was short to the point of rudeness when this latter request was made, and then ignored me when we were leaving. It made me feel uncomfortable.

    I was rather disappointed, truth be told. The restaurant was already looking a bit tired (door handles, tables and floors were worn). My champagne at £16 a glass was not served cold enough and we had a view of a train track and nothing else really. The food was nice but portions were too small and we left hungry. Basically, you're paying for the view - and in our case it wasn't even a good one! I would not recommend, nor return. I dined at the Sky Garden the night before and they were poles apart in terms of quality, value for money and views.

    Fantastic view but ordinary food, nothing so special

    Had the two course lunch set menu. It was delicious and filling. I had the duck starter and steak as a main. We also ordered some sides to supplement the main. It was my friend's birthday and Aqua was sweet enough to serve up a small surprise treat. Great service, very attentive. Nice cocktails too.

    Great views - good atmosphere. Not huge range of variety on menu. Great attentive service

    Amazing experience, every mouth full of are afternoon tea was a little bit of heaven!

  • (((** 22 March 2017 by Veronica Smith from Danbury

    The food was all right. There was nowhere near enough of it and very little choice. (perhaps understandable) The venue is superb. Staff were friendly enough, especially at reception. However, it is incredibly expensive. We were appalled that the vegetables that our waiter brought were on top of the price of the course. One very small glass of rose was £11.00. The waiter had only some English and did not make it clear beforehand that absolutely everything we had was priced separately and therefore the total bill was so much more than we expected. I think they are trading on the venue and getting away with overcharging on the back of it.

    Utterly let down, food was poor, especially the steak so poor could not eat it, the service was poor and inconsistent. When made a complaint the conceiage did offer a drink at the bar! Felt so let down and disappointed I just wanted to leave. - shocking same price overall for the grill at the Dorchester but no where near the standard.

    Views stunning.
