We had a really delicious meal, with very nice wine and Champagne. The service was exemplary and we had a wonderful table, by the window with a marvellous view of London!

Winner of Best Breakfast 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 Square Meal-recommended dining within one of London’s most iconic landmarks. London Bridge stations are a 2-minute walk away.

    Very good value for money

    I took overseas guests for dinner and found it truly disappointing. You sure pay for the view because the food, Service and overall experience was wholly unenjoyable and totally overpriced. As a Londoner I would not recommend it and will not be going back.

    Great place, good views and experience. Felt a little overcrowded/busy and therefore noisy. Although we had a 2 hour period, just felt that if you wanted to stay on and have some more drinks, that was not possible - felt a little rushed towards the end.

    Great food and a wonderful view over London,

    Great location, wonderful experience and very professional services.

    Setting was spectacular. Food was pretty good. We had a good time. But the bread was like rock! Also service seemed disjointed. Had to reorder water, main courses were given to the wrong people at our table and after dessert, a waiter approached us with menus to order all Over again! Bit surprising and unimpressive for a place that is impressive in so many other ways. Setting was the big highlight.

    I and my friend had lovely afternoon tea
    Staff were very helpfhelpful, smiling all the time , service was excellent....

    Best feature: the view. Food was very good - unfortunately, the service was as bad as the food was good, but we didn't let that spoil the experience! Perhaps the 12.5% service charge, which is automatically added to the bill, doesn't serve to motivate staff.
    The savoury items on the afternoon tea were delicious, but too few - would have preferred fewer sweet treats
