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.

Delicious food and great service, but small portions and pricey

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... read 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

I've had dinner last week with my best friend, a little treat for her BDay. Everything was excellent, starting for the new deco and the girls at the entrance, who helped me out to hide the present and flowers for the bday girl. One of the managers, Alice - has been very sweet and friendly, and she brought out the... More

It was one of those experiences you'd either want to forget or wish that have never happened! I celebrated my birthday with some friends on Sunday at Aqua Nueva however it turned up as a massive mistake! Staff was disorganised and unknowledgeable, quite unfriendly as well! Surprisingly for Sunday (Father's Day) we were the only table at lunch! The army... 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.
