We chose Aqua Kyoto as we had been recommended by friends and told that we had to go. Had the most delicious meal and what topped it off and made it even better was the service, it was outstanding and we couldn’t have been looked after any better. Nothing was too much and the staff were so attentive, from the minute we walked in we kept commenting that the service was so great. Also loved that we could have a drink before dinner on the roof terrace. There are not many restaurants in London like this one, we will definitely be returning!!!
Wow. Just wow. This is the... I'm not sure how to describe it. This place has low lighting and very high standards, but it's kinda pricey. The bar is super snazzy and if you want to impress, take your loved one here for a night out drinking or just a VERY fancy dinner. Only the very best ingredients are allowed in this place and if you are celebrating something then this is definitely a good place to do it!
It is 5pm on Sunday, and summer is officially here and I’m not going to miss one ray of sunshine by sitting indoors. So when its more than 16 degrees outside, what do you do? Go to a rooftop terrace and enjoy life! – I chose Aqua Kyoto!
(its probably going to rain tomorrow)
I have eaten in Aqua but it was a while back, and this time, we decided to get some cocktails. I wish I spent more time taking pictures of the views, as they were beautiful and you can literally see the whole of London from where I was standing. The crowd is a little young; 20’s –mid 30’s and I would suggest going between Thursday’s- Sunday’s as these days seem to have a vibrant and buzzing crowd. My choice of drink was a pornstar martini made by an amazing Italian bartender, whose name I cannot pronounce but he did well. Very strong but yet so sweet! Next time I will definitely be going back to try their Sunday infinity brunch ☺
I have never tried the food, but it looks great. The bar is a great one, divine selection of cocktails. Very classy atmosphere, but be prepared for the cocktail prices if you are not a big spender. The rooftop is great, overlooking most of Oxford Street, has quite a magical feel to it, always great vibes and cosy seating. Great to chill out and have drinks with friends.
Can't fault the service or the staff at all, 6/5 for them.
The food was also of a very high standard. However, portion size in ratio to the price (I mean, you're paying for the experience I get it but the price is quite excessive nonetheless). Also although the quality was high, the taste wasn't quite up to scratch. And although I had asked for medium well I got something that looked very rare.
The atmosphere is quite nice but a tad bit too loud in my opinion, I found myself shouting quite a bit in order to be heard.
Below par of the restaurant - the restroom was quite dark to the extent I had to use my phone torch to see where the bin was under the sinks. Satisfactory level of cleanliness. I mean if you put that toilet in another restaurant it'll look fantastic - but had higher expectations from a place like this.
Overall was an enjoyable experience and don't regret going.
