This restaurant and their food is good, but definitely not worth the money. If you are willing to spend the same amount of money for dining, go to Aqua Kyoto which is right next to this place.

A very impressive entrance on the ground floor with a lift up to both the Spanish and Japanese restaurants. The decor and layout is exceptional and the Spanish roof terrace is lovely. Unfortunately we were nearly alone in the restaurant at lunchtime so no ambience. We both ate the summer fixed price menu which was ok but nothing special. To... More

We had a really nice evening at Aqua Nueva. The pork belly dish was outstanding and the octopus as well. It's a modern take on traditional Spanish tapas and we loved it. Our waitress Carla was very knowledgeable and her expertise on the menu made our choices easier. Always attentive without intruding she is a real gem that I'd like... More

Very fancy decor with 2 restaurants, bars and terraces . However, service extremely slow. Had to wait for about 20 minutes to order a drink at the bar. A lot of staff but not enough attention.

Description
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.

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.
