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, subject to availability). 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. Choose from our delicious menu then take your time exploring the exhibits on the main floor of the attraction throughout your evening. The bar closes at 11pm and guests asked to depart by 11:30pm.

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.

The restaurant is located within The Deep exhibition with varied exhibits open. During the course of the evening, guests have the opportunity to view the displays in their nocturnal environment, with the lighting levels in the tanks dimming 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.

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.


We have a sumptious menu of locally sourced and sustainable ingredients for you to choose from on Friday and Saturday nights. Dishes are priced individually, offering flexibility for diners. Tempt your tastebuds with our current weekend menu here.

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

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!

Absolutely amazing!! The best dining experience we've ever had. Being so close. Sat right near the tank was brilliant. Staff were fantastic, food was beautiful. Lovely relaxed atmosphere.

July 2019

What an experience! We were celebrating my son passing exams. The party was aged 23-78 years old and we all absolutely loved it. 
The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service was attentive but unobtrusive. The food very good, but the backdrop was fantastic. 
Loved it. Thanks to all for a memorable night.
