What a fabulous restaurant in a great location. High above Regent Street, very little traffic noise from the streets below. Lovely terrace with great views. We had a gorgeous lunch (especially the croquettes negra) lots of lovely tapas and great wine list. The bar looks fun for night time and the outside space is good too. Service was excellent, very...

We were invited here for lunch by a supplier who had reserved a private function room with a terrace. Sadly the weather let us down so we didn't get to enjoy the outside space but the venue was great. Huge restaurant (which was sadly under occupied in my opinion) the food was great. We had a tapas style lunch and... 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.

A wonderful dining experience high up on the top floor just off Regent's Street. With a roof terrace and lively bar, this is more than just somewhere to eat. The Japanese food was tasty and impressively presented and the set menu made it just about affordable. If you want to pay more, the extensive food and wine menu gives plenty... More

My friend and I met for a nice week night dinner and it really was a very nice experience. We were booked for the set Taste of Summer menu which sometimes I have reservations about, as the staff are less attentive as you have booked one of their promotions. This is not true at all of Aqua Nueva, the accompanying... More

Beautiful place with lots of beautiful people! Not cheap at £6 bottle beer, but where else can you drink in the sun nearby. Pity the balcony allows smoking, but otherwise a great spot.

The food here was reasonable, but not great. I've had much nicer tapas in other places and the prices at Aqua Nueva are pretty high. Also, while some of the staff were very friendly, most were pretty offish and rude. If you're looking for a good tapas place in London, you could do better than Aqua Nueva.

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.
