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.

    I write, as I am actually particularly upset.

    I had a good friend saying with me from Italy. I took her to ‘The Shard’ as I knew, what a fantastic view of London, The Shard offers.

    As the ‘aqua Shard’ reviews are wonderful- I booked the table for TWO to eat on Easter Saturday- which I made in weeks advance- stating that I would like to sit relatively close to a window, allowing my friend a good view of our city.

    Sadly, we were not seated close to a window (Despite the early request)

    We were seated by a speaker- of which the music was remarkably loud- we certainly could not chat.

    Could you please explain why this was? I completely understand that your restaurant gets booked in advance but the request had been made.

    We were both so looking forward to the meal with a view - which was not the case- I look forward to hearing from you. I was too tired to complain on Saturday evening.

    I wasn't very impressed.

    I have to say our family Easter Sunday brunch started off pretty great but in the end was a huge disappointment! The view is fantastic and there is no bad seat but the rest of the experience fell far short. Cocktails are small, overpriced and weak! Service started off quick with appetizers coming in a timely manner. The rest of our meal took 45 mins to come out and when it did it was luke warm at best. It was hard to get the waiters attention to order more drinks and ask about food. We saw others complaining and walking out. We stayed out of hope the food would be worth the wasn't! When the bill came we were shocked to find a 16 Pound charge for tap water!! We booked Aqua Shard knowing it was going to be a pricey restaurant and was fine with that but we left feeling like we had been scammed! Expensive meals are great when they are worth every penny this wasn't worth a quarter of what we paid! My suggestion...go have one drink to see the view and skip the meal!

    Noisy, the music came from the bar and did the diner a noisy experience. The food was only a part of the visual experience but not the center of. I ordered "medium level" Hereford Beef Sirloin and the result was a "very well done" Sirloin

    Stunning views and absolutely delicious food!

    The lunch menu is excellent value!

    Having been at The Aqua Shard in the evening on a girls night out I had always vowed to go again during the day to capture the different views of London as I live London by night and day as it’s so different. What better way to do this than surprising my boyfriend (who is from the Isle of Wight and I’m a London girl showing off the London sights) by having a table by the window. He was overwhelmed with this surprise and the food was just so tasteful and presentable. The service was excellent too. Our photos came out brilliant too. Definitely worth another visit this time with my mother for afternoon tea.
