Restaurant description

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, 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.

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.

    The restaurant was awesome and our dinner was different because of Thiago, sommelier. Our food was slightly delayed and he offered us champagne to express that you were sorry! The gesture made us love the restaurant even more. He was thoughtful enough to take care of your customers. Food was amazing!!! Dessert superb! And service incomparable! Congrats for your excellent staff!!! Viviane Ricci
