Aqua - Croydon
The menu in this contemporary addition to the restaurant scene in Croydon offers a mouth watering selection of Mediterranean dishes using combining fresh, simple ingredients with a genuine love for creating exquisite cuisine.
The food is first class. It's nothing too fancy - just simple, quality food cooked to perfection, and presented beautifully. You'll find a good choice of everything from 28 day matured steak and tender braised lamb shanks to roasted sea bass and seared scallops.
Aqua - Croydon has Live Music every Friday night from 8pm.
The attentive staff ensure that each visit to Aqua Mediterranean Meze Bar and Grill is a special one - you won't be disappointed!
Lovely Sunday lunch with my friend. Nothing was too much for the staff.
Went for Saturday lunch with my Dad for my birthday ! Service was great , food delicious z
Poor service, didnt pay much attention to us. We had to wait 25 minutes to pay.
Very good customer service, the staff very friendly and helpful with everything, food was tasty and big portions. Great evening!
Fantastic food and great service as always. We are repeat customers and will be back.
Brilliant service. Wonderful food. Great atmosphere. Overall lovely place
Another brilliant lunch as always couldn’t fault the service and lovely food
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.
Aqua is a lovely place to go and the food is always good. Staff are friendly and there is s nice warm atmosphere.
Management and staff fantastic. Great ambience. Food lovely
Friendly attentive staff, tasty food and cocktails
The food was amazing and would definitely go again
Service and the staff very good and lovely people
Fabulous! Must definitely visit. No. 1 on the strip. Cannot be beaten.
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.
Amazing food and service as always! I've been many times Inc Christmas day and its always great! Just a shame its not on the taste card anymore ;-)
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.
Lovely food which came very quickly, and the staff was very friendly
I’d definitely recommend here! Such good food and good service.
I come here a lot with my friends and we love it. The food is always consistently good x
The food was nicely presented and staff attentive but without being overbearing. A good choice of meals available but some advertised on the website were not available or listed on the restaurant menu. The food prices about in line with others, but the service charge is steep, although this is optional.
The lamb was a bit chewy, I thought is beef but wasn’t. The server told us they never cook from beef. Only lamb and chicken. Service was great. No baby change? 😮 thanks for the great night
Thus was a wonderful dining experience. Attentive, friendly service that made you feel special, delicious, beautifully prepared food and drink and a lovely environment. Excellent value for money. What a gem, what a find, in the lovely, eclectic area of South end, Croydon. I'm looking forward to my next visit. Mel Pross
Lovely place where staff can’t do enough for you
Ok experience. Nothing special
Outstanding food, fabulous and attentive service! Love going to Aqua, always guaranteed a great night with delicious food and amazing staff 😀
My mum ordered a lamb dish which took longer to be served than the other dishes and was still raw inside, the other dishes were mediocre.
Great table, service and food. A reasonable priced restaurant with a buzzy & relaxed ambiance.
Fantastic food and service. There 8 people in our party and we were not rushed. We were even allowed to stay after dinner for a few drinks
Very nice staff always at had to help you. Only thing was on the day I went for my meal some other people eating at their table were noisy which spoilt my vist on this occasion.
Good service, cocktails reasonably priced, good tasty. Received someundercooked chicken but this was remedied when we brought it up with a member of staff .
Came here for my 30th birthday on Friday. Aqua is a lovely place, the food and service was great. You will be seeing us again
My partner and I went to Aqua Croydon on 1st February 2019. We both had mussels to start and they were so disappointing - tough mussels in warmed up cream. I then had the salmon which came with 2 spoonfuls of risotto and my partner had sirloin steak which was served with chips, no vegetables.
I used to like this restaurant chain but it has gradually scrimped and scrimped on portions, and in some cases effort, but not on prices and is overly reliant on the nice decor to bring in the custom. By now it should be dawning that there is too much competition out there to be so blasé.
Sadly will not be returning to Aqua Croydon.
Steak wasn’t great, very fatty. 50% off Monday was as if they were getting rid of bad steak. Won’t be returning
Myself and 2 friends went to Aqua for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We ordered off the set lunch menu, The food was absolutely beautiful! The service was outstanding and the cocktails were very tasty!! Definitely recommend and will definitely be returning. Thank you for a lovely afternoon Aqua
Went for friends birthday, everyone loved it. Had a round table as requested
Went there for my daughters 21st, it was the first Friday of January so the restaurant was quiet. However, the service was first class and so was the quality of the food, not my first visit and most definitely will not be my last
I am very disappointed with the New Years Eve inflated menu price - the food was good but not worth the money.
I booked for the evening of New Years Eve, that afternoon I received a call from a member of staff informing me that there was a set menu and that it was half price...I thought great!!
On arrival to Aqua we were presented with a menu (3 courses for £75 & they claimed this was half price), I nearly fell off my seat - they were the same dishes from the regular menu and what I ordered would have cost £28.50 from the regular menu excluding drinks. There was not even a complimentary drink thrown in for this ridiculously over priced menu.
I certainly will not be dining there New Year's Eve 2019!!
Very good good food waiters elllenct good beer overall good evening
We went as a group for Christmas catch up. Offering the A la Carte and also two seasonal menus. The season menus priced at two levels. They were both varied and amble to choose from. The food was absolutely lovely. We ordered wine which the menu was varied and not expensive.
They looked after us like we were VIP and we got an after dinner drink on the house.
Such a nice restaurant and the vibe was great. Look forward to go again.
