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.

    Beautiful setting with exceptional views of London. Food was good. Service could use tightening up. We were celebrating a birthday. Our first impression of the restaurant was of exiting the lift and entering an entryway strewn with luggage and a waiter filling a champagne case from a huge metal rolling carrier on a busy weekend brunch time. The host didn’t seem to realise the obstructed entry was a problem. After then getting to the table and ordering, the starters arrived promptly and in expected time. Food was nice, tasty, well presented, warm. Then we waited a very long time for mains. I’d reckon at least a half hour just between when we finished starters to when the mains actually arrived. One of the dessert orders was taken incorrectly as was probably one of the starters. I wasn’t sure if I hadn’t ordered the starter that came out and I was happy to eat it so it was ok but the dessert was definitely wrong. It’s a special place for sure but my expectations of it are low on the service side.

    It was a lovely experience - we had a great time. Though it was busy, we still really enjoyed it. The brunch menu was beautiful and we had difficulty trying to choose. The wine was a little disappointing but it was bad.

    Nice warm welcome at reception and by the waiting staff. Our table was one row back from the tables located by the glass but we still had a good view of the city and all the landmarks along the Thames. We were offered a Bellini cocktail which was delicious and we opted for the three course lunch which was very good value. We viewed the wine list but this was very expensive. Our waiter kept us well supplied with still water which was much appreciated. The good was beautifully presented and tasty - I opted for the Hake and my partner chose the pork belly. We ordered a portion of chips to supplement the dish which I would recommend.
