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.

    Try to book for 1pm as it’s the first timing. We had a table with a fantastic view.
    The Mary P tea was delicious as were the sandwiches. The scones were fresh but cakes a bit too sweet.
    We got complimentary refills. A very enjoyable experience with very pleasant service.

    Lovely decor with a fab view! Food was delicious, each and every course especially the chocolate dessert! Wines expensive though. Excellent service. Would go again, with the market lunch deal.

    When we first turned up was fine. Got show to a area to have a drink while waiting for a table. When we got to the table it was the other side or the room away from the window and very dark. My girlfriend took a picture of me with my back to the window and you could only see the outline of me and this was at 9pm. I asked to be moved as I put down on my booking order that I wanted to propose to my girlfriend and thought that they would read this and put us somewhere nice. But no when I complained they said they had seen this by two different managers but if I wanted a window seat I would have to wait an extra 3-4 hours extra. My girlfriend was upset and started to cry at this point. I went off to speak with the managers again. They came over to the table a bit later on and said the next table will be ours by a window but by this point my girlfriend had enough and said they have ruined the the night. Within a minute the manager had a table by the window for us and offered money off the food. Choose what we wanted to eat and waited. The door come to us just after 10pm. We got to the Shard at 8.15pm. We got with the night eating and drinking and all was good and my girlfriend did say yes to me. We asked for the bill. No money was taken off unlike the manager said they would so I asked for the manager and was told he would be over. Something later a waiter came over to take payment but still no manager so I asked for him again. Meanwhile they did give us a glass of champagne each and a pudding with congratulations on it for free. Then the manager came over but it was a different one from before so I had to tell him the whole thing again. He did take off a bite of money.
    It was meant to be a one off and a moment of a life time for us both but I fill with the very poor service it has over showded this. I will never go back again out of choose.

    Excellent from start to finish. We’ll go back again. Staff are very friendly and attentive.

    I was extremely impressed with the staff from the way our group was supported. Both my parents use a wheelchair and were treated with dignity and respect. The service was excellent and alternatives were offered on the menu to cater for food dislikes. It was lovely to enjoy a meal leisurely and did not feel rushed at anytime.
    I have been to aqua shard on several occasions but this was a wonderful new experience for my family.

    It was very very ridiculously overpriced

    We had the 2course lunch star deal :
    We loved the food - but both sauces on our fish dishes were not to my taste !
    Salmon and trout / especially the sauce with the trout was too much like “for me “ tomatoe sauce !
    Sorry ??
