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.
