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.

    Superb lunch overlooking London. Excellent service. It was for my son's birthday and without asking they presented him with a beautiful birthday dessert. Next time I'm in London I know where I shall be dining.

    We had the set price lunch which was very enjoyable and very good value. As you would expect the restaurant is very beautiful with wonderful views. The service was excellent and we would recommend it. The only criticism is the coffee is very expensive - with no chocolates!

    Food and views was amazing, had a 14:30 slot and felt rushed by waiters who seemed keen to get us off our table well before 16:00.

    Firstly I was very impressed with the security checks as we entered the building. Smart and polite welcoming staff and a fantastic view as we entered the restaurant. Service and food were first class we did however think the wine was a little expensive.

    Wonderful attention to detail whilst also being a relaxed atmosphere.

    The food was excellent. However, much of the service was poor. We were made to wait for our table (we booked for 12 o'clock lunch and there was nobody else sitting at what became our table) whilst other people who arrived after us were shown to theirs. Nobody offered to take our coats, we had to put them on the back of our chairs.We were given a spoon to eat our cheese with and had to ask for a knife and fork. Nobody said goodbye or thanked to us for coming when we left the restaurant despite walking past 3 members of staff to leave. Given the prices this restaurant charges (£11 for a 125ml glass of house wine) we felt that the service was not up to the high quality and standard of the food. Two years ago we dined at the Oblix and based on our experience on Wednesday I would recommend Oblix rather than Aqua for anyone wanting to dine at The Shard.

    Amazing. From the moment we entered to the time we left the experience and service was outstanding. Food was 5 star. Could not fault anything.
