Description: Set high above the bustle of Regent Street on the fifth floor of the famous former Dickins & Jones building, aqua london is one of the capital's most unique and exciting drinking and dining destinations with its two restaurants, cocktail bar and stunning roof terraces. Aqua kyoto is a unique Japanese restaurant showcasing chef Paul Greening's innovative cuisine. An extensive menu of beautifully-presented sushi and sashimi is complemented by creative hot dishes combining the highest quality British produce with Paul's contemporary technique. A central sushi bar and open sumibiyaki charcoal grill combine with sleek black and red decor to create a sense of theatre in keeping with aqua kyoto's location in the heart of the West End. Pass the Pamplona bull that seems to charge at you along the sultrily-lit corridor and find yourself in aqua nueva, offering Spanish dining at its finest. Here chef Alberto Hernandez presents a modern take on traditional northern Spanish cuisine, reinterpreting classic dishes in exciting new ways. Meanwhile at London's first dedicated Cava Bar guests can order from a menu of delicious tapas while enjoying a glass of cava from an extensive list. At the heart of aqua london is aqua spirit and its charcoal-ringed bar representing Zen purity. Perennially popular as a destination for beginning, ending or spending an evening, at aqua spirit master mixologists serve up some of the finest cocktails in London. Aqua spirit boasts two hidden gems - outdoor terraces with stunning views over London's rooftops, perfect places to relax and refresh.

We arranged to eat here prior to our night out, and what a perfect place for a girly catch up!

Perfect service. Amazing food. (The best food I’ve had in months and I eat out ALOT) and a great atmosphere.

The staff were well informed about the food and wine which helped us order.

Would definitely come here again!

Aqua Kyoto is located just off the Oxford Street tube station with its 2 roof top bars overlooking the Regent Street. This trendy place serves creatively fusioned Japanese dishes. Tuna tataki and misod scallops are stunning.
Great atmosphere, very tasty food, and excellent bars. Go and enjoy the sunset and listen to the live DJ.

Our group recently visited aqua. As our group regularly eat out we found the small dishes overpriced. We have had better experiences in lesser surroundings. We felt it just wasn't value for money, there are better places for similar prices or cheaper .

It was a warm may afternoon and we heard this place had a good terrace, it's ok at best, extremely cramped with not great views. Drinks are good but expensive. Some of the staff were border know on rude. Not sure it's one I'd recommend.
