I invited a friend for some after dinner drinks to celebrate his birthday and Aqua was exactly what we expected. We had a few different cocktails enjoying the rooftop on a really nice London night. Unfortunately, we had a bitter moment when we noticed the manager not being really polity to one of his bartenders. I understand how difficult it... More

The food here is pretty good. It's tapas so you need about 2-3 dishes per person. There is a nice mix of traditional tapas and contemporary dishes. Our favourites were the spiced aubergine and beef short rib. I was a bit surprised that after being handed the menu we were told that the venison dish was now rabbit and two... More

I have been to Aqua Nueva to be pleasantly surprised. We felt really welcome in this place. Firstly, we had cocktails. You must try them, most definitely! Whilst choosing our food, there was a lovely and friendly lady, I think she was the manager, Paoletta, who kindly recommended delicious dishes and a very good Tempranillo Spanish wine to go with...

This place is excellent! The 'tapas' style menu is varied and delicious. The entree, main and dessert are all Spanish inspired, and almost take you back to Spain! I had the potato bravas and the fried squid. Both were well presented and cooked very well. The service and location was brilliant! Located on Regents St, you get a great view... More

Booked Winter Menu, very good value, food and cocktail (with gin & kale foam) tasted very good. Modern, trendy restaurant and bar with good outside terrace. Ideal place to also meet for drinks.

Amazing bar/club. The food is really good and everything is elegant. There is also a rooftop where you can enjoy a lovely drink. However it is really expensive

We went last night as there was a deal on that included a cocktail and a selection of small eats from a specific menu. Adding the wine made it a wee bit more expensive but well worth it. One of the best places I have been to in London for a few drinks and something light to eat. We will... More

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

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
