Restaurant description

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.

    We had an excellent double birthday celebration lunch! The service was extremely good and the food was inventive and lovely. I would definitely recommend the Aqua Shard!

    Food was good but didn’t like service I requested by the window because it was special occasion but we didn’t. And when we finish lunch having coffee, they seems taking away everything from our table and one waitress came if we need anything we want so when We say no, they already had a bill on her hand they put the bill straight way. So we felt uncomfortable. Other good restaurant I visited, I have never had this experience.
