Two Rivers is one of Hull's most unique restaurants and is located in the heart of the aquarium (open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 7pm). Enjoy an evening with friends and family, a romantic dinner or celebrate a special occasion whilst surrounded by some of Europe's best aquatic displays.

You can also take your time exploring the exhibits on the main floor of the attraction throughout your evening as the table is yours for the night. Lighting levels in the tanks dim throughout the evening until approximately 8:30pm when our Curator insists on ‘lights out’ so that the animals can have their rest for the night!  Please note guests are not able to view the penguins during visits to the restaurant.

The seating arrangements in the restaurant are bespoke each evening and we do not take requests for tank side seating. In order to make the seating as fair as possible, tank side tables are allocated in date order of reservation with the first bookings placed given priority. All tables are located in view of the tank windows.

Vegetarian, gluten and dairy free options are available as marked on the menu. For additional dietary requirements, please contact us as we may be able to offer additional dishes to suit your needs by prior arrangement. Full allergen details can be provided on request. 

FOR PARTIES OF 30 OR MORE - in the case of large groups of 30 or more, some dishes on the menu may not be available, but our team will be able to advise you on this.

Tempt your tastebuds with our current weekend menu here. You can see our children's menu here (suitable for children up to age 12). Please let us know when booking if children are included in your party.

Please note the A La Carte menu is only available on Friday and Saturday evenings.

See what some of our customers think about Two Rivers below:

My husband asked to go here for his birthday. An excellent time was had by all, especially my 13 year old daughter who used to love the sharks here as a toddler and clearly still does as she really enjoyed watching the sharks, turtles, sting rays and frogs. Our waiter was attentive and food served quickly (although still allowing time for more shark and frog viewing between courses). We started with the bread platter and were surprised at the size of the portions. I had Korean beef parcels and the rib eye steak, both of which were excellent. Daughter says the garlic bread was the best she'd ever had and is now hoping to return for her next birthday.

An amazing restaurant. We sat in the middle of the aquarium, what an amazing view! The waitress was very attentive and made our night perfect! Make sure you book table 2!!!!

The restaurant is within The Deep, it’s an amazing place to go. First all about oceanic info and background, and second the place for having diner. The food is very good, tasteful and the plates have a good presentation. Having diner within The Deep is for sure an experience.

The atmosphere was incredible with dimmed lighting and the blue effect of the surrounding tanks. As well as being a novel and unforgettable experience, the meal itself was absolutely scrumptious with out-of-the-ordinary options and a good selection of dishes which catered to many special diets.

The service across the board was also outstanding; upon entering the building we were greeted by enthusiastic servers and hosts who made sure that we knew where to go and what we were able to do. It was a very relaxed set-up and guests were allowed to explore nearby exhibits before/after their meals. Drinks ordered at the separate bar could be taken with you as you walked past the tanks and were conveniently added to a tab which could be paid at any point with any member of staff. Our server, Paul, was especially outstanding and helped to make sure we had the best experience possible. A definite must-do for those looking for a particularly special & memorable meal out!
