Aqua Shard Restaurant Review

: Aqua Shard offers views over London from the 31st floor of Europe's highest building, and an interior done in a purple and grey color scheme with comfortable banquettes covered with Liberty print. Add to all this dishes using seasonal local ingredients and a dash of exotic flavors and you have a winner. Cured Scottish mackerel comes with a ginger and horseradish jelly and smoked potato cubes; roast halibut is accompanied by charred onion, confit orange peel and nasturtium leaves with a passion fruit and honey dressing adding a sweet note. Or go for grilled pork belly with fennel sausage, apricots poached in white vinegar, turnips and Guinness jus. Desserts range from chocolate and lavender tart with pistachio ice cream to strawberries and cream, and there’s a good selection of British cheeses as well. Breakfast is another British feast; try the full English or go back to your childhood with soft boiled eggs and buttered soldiers. Lunch Mon.-Fri. 2 courses £25.50, 3 courses £29.50; 3-course brunch with cocktails £48; afternoon tea £34.50.
