Aqua nueva, located in the heart of the West End, has a striking design and contemporary Spanish menu.
Head Chef Yahir Gonzalez offers a menu of small plates and Spanish dishes that honour the country’s culinary heritage and innovation, combining the best seasonal produce with his contemporary style, perfectly reflecting modern diners’ appetite for flexible dining.
The Robert Angell design is inspired by rich Spanish culture and has re-focused the space to unveil a beautiful open restaurant and central destination bar. Intricate black and white mosaic floors run throughout and a striking copper-coloured vaulted ceiling imitates the inside of the renowned sherry casks of Jerez. Guests can sit back and relax on chic banquette seating whilst catching glimpses of the chefs at work in the kitchen.
aqua nueva provides a hidden sanctuary reminiscent of sun-drenched Spain with two stunning terraces to enjoy a cocktail before or after dining.

Lovely food, service and ambiance

The food was exceptional and each dish brought new flavours. The food was served in stages so you were not over faces. Service was impeccable and we were extremely well looked after by the Maitre D and our waitress (apologies for not remembering her name).
We were very pleased and would definitely eat here again.

The food was outstanding, everything was so tasting and well presented. Our waitresses Estrella was super attentive. The atmosphere was nice, warm and relaxed.
I also received a nice surprise from the team because it was my bday. An absolutely amazing experience. Thank you Aqua Nueva!

We had booked at 8pm and arrived at 7:45pm. We were asked by the female manager that evening if we had a reservation which we confirmed and I gave my last name. The lady left to check and never returned. No one helped us to a table so we sat down by ourselves. After waiting 20minuted without a drink or reply we asked the male bar tender for a drink which he quickly served to us. After speaking to a third person we were finally seated in a empty restaurant! The tapas were lovely and so was the desert but we won’t be coming back! Plenty of other restaurants around with better customer service.

Had a catch up with a couple of friends. Booked by pure chance. What a regret :(
The food was lovely but the service was shocking. There are apparently still some restautants who believe that customer service includes treating customers as if wiping excrement from their shoes... disappointing but at least gave us a talking point... we'll be catching up again but it won't be here...

When we arrived we were told that the terrace was closed which was one of the primary reasons we booked. The atmosphere was impacted by a large group on the terrace and v few people on other tables. Whilst the cocktails were excellent the 30 minute + wait was too much. Used to be a favourite.., not any more sadly

Nice venue. Not too busy which suited is fine. All the action was at the adjacent restaurant. Food was good. The only negative was they brought out the main while we were still having our starters, so felt a bit rush. Cheers.

Lunchtime is a good time to eat here as it's not busy so service is quick and it's not crowded or noisy! Love the ambience and style of the place and the Spanish food is tasty too.

Trendy bar, food was good but service was chaotic. Not unfriendly or unpleasant just all over the place. Gave our table away, spilt wine tried to take payment for the meal twice .... I could go on. I'd go back to the bar for a drink but the restaurant I'd give a miss!

The food was great. No complaints whatsoever about the quality, the presentation. What was lacking was atmosphere. Felt like the restaurant was an after thought in the planning. Bar area was great and full of buzz but restaurant felt a bit out of the way and dark.

The food and service was great, just felt like the portions could be a bit bigger. After 3 courses we still were hungry. But overall delicious food and great restaurant.
