Aqua Shard

This is Aqua's brand new concept for London, with a focus on contemporary British cuisine from exec chef Anthony Garlando, who has created a menu which combines British ingredients with "Garlando’s innovative international cooking techniques". Expect the cocktails to reflect the British focus too.

"The appeal of drinking while on high is eternal and even a bit inexplicable, but there’s no denying it. Aqua Shard is not the sort of place you’ll want to visit every week. But to remind yourself how glorious our city can look while getting pissed, go vertical." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 10 Lisa Harris View London
Reviewed on July 08, 2013
"The plating style is simple, but flavours are a complex, elevated taste of the city; as you look over London, you’ll eat butter infused with smoke, or microherbs that are reminiscent of lichen growing up the city’s older landmarks. READ REVIEW
