Never changes, always great food. The outside needs some work doing though, looking grubby. And the signage needs repairing x

On arrival we were greeted warmly by the staff. I had the Duck Confit for my main that was cooked so it fell of the bone and I liked that the spinach and mash potato was presented in a unique way. My husband had the Souvlaki Skewer -Lamb and said that his lamb was cook just how he likes it (well done but not over cooked) tender and tasty. We would highly recommend the Aqua Royale that was presented to us for our anniversary with strawberries and chocolate sauce . The ambiance was calm even though there was music in the back ground but it was not too loud so we were able to hold a conversation and still enjoy the music. Through out our time at Aqua the staff were friendly, helpful and not intrusive. We will be returning and bringing some friends along.

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend; having my mum come up to see me I thought it would be nice to take her here.

The food was exceptional. Taste, presentation, time, all A class. The staff were very polite and friendly, great sense of humour too.

Business lunch with some colleagues, quiet on a monday but we got very attentive friendly personal service. Meze board shared as starter tasty and sufficient for three. Main courses of Kleftiko and Calves liver well cooked, tasty, full of flavour and actually very large portion. All good value. We will be back.

Such amazing service. I can’t fault the staff. We were a group of 10, and the staff were attentive and patient (we had children). They would constantly check on us and make sure we were all doing ok.

My partner and I had a lovely meal at Aqua - the service was spot on and the food equally so - portion sizes were very good but unfortunately I was too full for dessert!! We had a lovely bottle of wine and will definitely be going back! The only thing I would say is that it was a very quiet evening and a table of 4 came in after us which included an older gentleman with a zimmer frame and they were put on the table just behind us which made it feel a little cramped considering the rest of the restaurant was empty but this is the only criticism.

I had booked this restaurant on the back of the good reviews I'd seen across the internet and from word of mouth. Unfortunately my visit coincided with mothers day, where the restaurant decided to only offer a 3 course set menu consisting of standard pub fayre, with no Mediterranean / turkish flavour on offer. The food itself was terrible, clearly churned out of the kitchen with little thought put in or indeed flavour, and the value for money was terrible (£32.50 for three terrible courses). Extremely disappointed, would not recommend if being forced to take a set menu.

I want to thank Betim and his team for making mothering Sunday such a welcome and special occasion. On top of the great customer service the food was prompt and amazing, especially the chocolate brownie to finish. I highly recommend Aqua for all occasions.
