Epitomising destination dining at its very finest, Aqua Nueva sits on top of the former Dickens & Jones department store, opposite the London Palladium. With breathtaking views from the terrace, the restaurant is equally striking inside - a fabulously chic blend of contemporary styles is the setting for acclaimed Spanish cuisine. Tapas delicacies are presented with real artistic flair, and are perfectly matched with a choice of colourful cocktails from the talented mixologists. Aqua Nueva, with its unmatched ambience and flair, has attracted widespread critical acclaim, and attracts celebrity diners regularly.

I came here by invitation of the venue on their soft launch event. The staff that day were excellent. The Spanish seafood tapas was incredible, as were the cocktails served. There are three rooftop bars with view of central London which would make a great vantage point for after dinner drinks. I would definitely visit again to try out the... More

This was a big suprise to find this place over the top of Regents Street and I am glad I found. They have a large rooftop terrace which is impressive and when I was there the sun was out so made it even better. The staff are welcoming and make you feel at ease and did not have a problem... More

But pricey but you won't a better place to have a cocktail then on the rooftop terrace. Beautiful view in the middle of the city, service a bit slow but the terrace makes up for it

Visited Aqua Nueva with some friends after a recommendation from one of them. The service was incredible! We had a private room for ourselves, nice huge table, nice decoration and great view. The bar is really cool. Food is delicious but comes in very small portions at a high price. Don't expect to come here and leave full. I recommend... More

I cam here recently with a friend to try the new Aqua nueva. The restaurant was lovely, really spacious and airy. The food was sublime, we had 4 small plates each and shared them, my favourites was the suckling pig, tuna (literally melts in the mouth) and octopus. Although the lamb was amazing too! My friend had some rose to... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
