Winner of Best Restaurant 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 highly acclaimed dining within one of London’s most iconic landmarks. London Bridge stations are a 2-minute walk away.

    It was very slow and a disappointing first visit unfortunately.

    Absolute nightmare, worst experience ever! The Head chef could not make a single vegan main course, they have kept on changing their mind and misleading me, and at the end I had to have a starter dish (again) instead of main. Waited for an hour only to receive my “main” which was 5 asparagus sticks!!!!! Service was also poor, staff was by all means not tentative, couldn’t catch their attention on numerous occasions, my welcome drink arrived after the starter course?!?! The Manger was not at all apologetic- instead, he was trying his hardest to avoid the situation and any potential confrontations.

    I would have not expected this from Aqua but I guess their famous quality is not just a myth.

    Absolutely disappointed!!!
