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.

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 highly acclaimed dining within one of London’s most iconic landmarks. London Bridge stations are a 2-minute walk away.

    The views are great .. the service was excellent .. the food was expensive, spare but beautifully cooked and presented. All in all a lovely evening.

    Great view and friendly staff. Food was tasty, but could have been presented with more detail (some of the food didn't look as expected). There could have been more references to Mary Poppins. Overall a great experience!

    Fabulous food. Excellent service. Nice touch to move us to window seat for our pudding.

    It is worth going to this restaurant for the view alone, but the food is delicious as well. A great welcome from the staff on our arrival, and we were taken to our table quite close to the floor-to-ceiling window - wow. We opted for the bookatable Star Deal, and started with the veloute (pea soup), then followed with the sea trout, and for dessert, the Apple Tart Tatin. The waiting staff were excellent too, with attentive service, but not overbearing - just as it should be in a restaurant of this standard. A bottle of red wine with the lunch, and coffee at the end of the meal, made it a special occasion, as my guest was a friend from Australia who was visiting London. He too was very impressed.

    Just brilliant! Every attention to detail; a very special afternoon tea.

  • (((** 13 August 2019 by Anne from Ware

    The location, surroundings and views are excellent, however the quality of food and the service were not as good as they could have been for the price we paid. The waiting staff were not as attentative as expected, there were errors in the food order and items missing, and the Sommelier did not keep our wine topped up. Most of the wine list was incredibly expensive, a bit too much for the standard of food and service. There were very few bottles of wine under £50.
