    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "had chicken souvlaki was completely tasteless and dry very disappointing as had gone there specifically to celebrate a birthday."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "The food at Aqua is excellent. Very tasty and reasonably priced. On this visit (just before Christmas) there were lots of group bookings/office parties which added a great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and relaxed but still efficient an not invasive. A fun meal out."
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "We were pleased with the quality of the food but I was pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the staff. The service is spot on and the service charge in the bill is well justified. We will surely visit again."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "Good food at good price. Took a little while to get the attention of staff when we first arrived (they were very busy) but thereafter they were attentive and welcoming"
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "Last minute dinner with friend - haven't been here for a while but the food was brilliant. The service was lacking slightly but it is good value. Would go here again."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Aqua is on a road surrounded by other independent restaurants and in comparison it is inline with these. The service is a little slow, but we ate early, and it did get quicker as the place filled up. The Greek dip started tasted odd but the mains we had (risotto, Cypriot stew and crab pasta) were enjoyable, the cocktails and coffee's were the highlights though. Good for a group with a lot of tables and nice decor."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "we have been to Aqua many times and weather a group booking or just for the two of us the service has always been attentive and friendly. There is a good selection from the menu and it all comes up looking great and tasting freshly cooked. Try it once and you`ll keep going back."
    dined on 23/03/2014

    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "Always consistently good food and service. Always a good work option for us if we want to go on a team lunch or take people out for lunch."
    dined on 23/08/2013
  • "I have been to this restaurant many times for lunch as work is close by. Today I went for dinner with a friend who lives locally. I was not disappointed the 2 and 3 course menus are great value and the service excellent."
    dined on 12/03/2014
  • "Good food, good service, nice evening. Our 2nd visit to Aqua, my only criticism is that the ambient noise level can be too much, making conversations across the table difficult (we were just 5) - but the food and service are just fine, and my Gourmet Society membership discount (pre-advised) was accepted!"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "2nd time at Aqua and the food was lovely, no complaints there. Did feel a little rushed though as it was busy and people were waiting for tables. We had eaten and was out the door within 1hr and 20mins so didn't feel relaxed."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "We went to aqua for a large celebration meal and the quality of food and service received was outstanding. We've been to Aqua numerous times now and we had a lovely dinner every time!"
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "Been visiting this great restaurant for the past 3 years. The staff here are always really friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely brilliant! Would definitely recommend anyone to visit!"
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Came here for a family dinner on a Friday night. Great menu and the service and food was excellent. Unfortunately we were seated next to a very loud group celebrating a birthday, and this, along with the music playing, made it difficult to have a conversation without shouting. But this aside, I would recommend, maybe just on a weeknight"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Good restaurant, good service and good value. However, the chicken we had was a little to dry and over cooked (burnt almost)"
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "The food was nicely portioned and really tasty and the staff were friendly and welcoming. There were only a few things that could do with looking at - the wine did not come in a chilled container, we had to pour ourselves refills and the dessert (we both had the chocolate pot) was quite literally a pot of chocolate which was too rich and too much. The biscuit that came with this dessert did save the day in the end though - a beautiful amaretto biscuit with just the right amount of chew vs. crunch. I would recommend this restaurant as a good but priced fairly place to meet friends for dinner or lunch, not the place to go for a special occasion."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "This is probably the worst restaurant that we have been to... Noisy... Expensive ...tasteless food especially their take on chicken kebab with rice"
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "As always friendly service and excellent food. Really good atmosphere for both couples and groups try it out!"
    dined on 14/02/2014

    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Have eaten here as a couple and with friends several times. Always good -staff helpful, food excellent although a bit expensive worth it! Busy place understandably so please book to avoid disappointment."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "I found the service too quick, felt like they were trying to get you in and out as quickly as possible, the tables were very close together, very noisy restaurant and insufficient toilet facilities for the amount of people accommodated in this restaurant. Food very average."

    dined on 23/01/2014
  • "10 People attended for a social night out on a thursday, the setting was fresh and inviting. The food was presented well came hot and tasted lovely. The only complaint 1 diner had was that she couldn't eat her avacodo as it was far too hard!. otherwise we all enjoyed our meals. The choice of a set menu as well as the main menu was inviting and meant people could all budget. I would definately go again."
    dined on 09/01/2014
  • "A large menu of choice and the food we chose was absolutely delicious."
    dined on 05/01/2014

    dined on 25/12/2013
  • "Aqua offers half-priced steak Monday and a week-long set meal menu that both offer great values. Food is simple yet consistently good - simply grilled steak with peppery rocket and a little bit of balsamic vinegar dressing taste gorgeous."
    dined on 14/10/2013
  • "Enjoyed the food friendly staff made it a nice night out"
    dined on 28/12/2013
  • "We were a group of 18 people. Service was exceptional, staff polite and attentive as needed. There was a mix up with the orders between us an another large group, but they kept us informed what was happening. One person in group did have to wait for her main, which was disappointing as the order was emailed a week in advance. Food was delicious, and the cost for both food and drink was good value. Would definitely come again and recommend to others."
    dined on 18/12/2013
  • "Every time we go to Aqua it gets better! The food is outstanding and the service fantastic. Always a very safe bet."
    dined on 15/12/2013
  • "Have eaten here a few times for different occasions but ultimately return for Steak nights which occur on Mondays. Menu choice is excellent and always superbly cooked. Service is attentive and personable. My advise is to always book in advance as it is quite popular. Note that 20% service charge is added to the bill regardless of number in the party, which I do think is a little steep when it's only a party of 2."
    dined on 02/12/2013
  • "Went with my parents who are quite fussy about what they will eat. They had no trouble finding a dish they would like and both said it was delicious. Good sized portions, full of flavor. Only downsize were the noise-levels but that was more to di with 2 separate xmas office parties they were hosting. Friendly service. All in all, a great meal."
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "The waiter was really cheeky and borderline rude. You almost couldn't ask him anything as he would respond in a different language. He may have been going for funny but it just just didn't work. Plus our food took forever to arrive despite the maitre d' telling us we couldn't order from a different menu because they were already prepared for our party."
