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.

  • ((*** 5 March 2018 by Pamela from London

    Awful, the food portions were tiny and the treat for my friend's birthday was next to nothing. They do not appear to be taking on board the feedback from other diners who state the food portions are tiny.
    Not a patch on its sister restaurant Aqau Kyoto, where i had a wonderful time for my birthday.
    None of us will go here again.

    Attentive service (although interrupted conversation at the table). Delicious and interesting food. Three course menu with cocktail was good value, but you leave not feeling absolutely full! Great atmosphere.

    Excellent food, good atmosphere, good service

    We went during a lunchtime serice on Saturday, restuarant was empty. Staff were friendly. We chose the 3 course meal £30pp plus cocktail. Food was good but so very little of it, the price for the amount of food was extortionate. The dishes the food was served in were huge, 1st course consisted of a spoonful of rice with small pieces of crab, the main was listed as suckling pig belly which was a slither of pork belly. There was no Spanish feel to the restuarant at all. We ordered two drinks and a bottle of water which cost us an additional £34!!! Complete rip off.

    Fantastic food, menu was slightly different to the sample menu so slightly less choice.

  • ((((* 9 January 2018 by Anonymous from London

    Food was simply delicious and well presented however the portions are extremely tiny. If the portion size is reviewed i’d definitely come back again.
    In saying that it was an enjoyable experience and the staff are friendly and attentive.

    The place was so dark people were using phones as a torch. And the portions were just above postage stamp size. The wine list was very expensive.

    The food was superb. Beautifully presented and every dish was delicious. Tapas size portions so not enough food on the 3 course deal to fill you up, but would definitely return as food was so good. The staff were very attentive and professional. Setting was very nice too.
