Had such a lovely time there last weekend, that we went back with friends the following weekend.
If you want full choice of Sunday lunch, get there before 4PM, as it sells out quickly . We all had the lamb (which was lovely, ( I had it last week) as the beef had sold out . No one was too disappointed. Maybe a bit too much gravy for some.

Had a wonderful Sunday lunch there. I don't normally eat meat when I'm out, as I like it very well done (it never is) but they cook it to perfection for me and also for my husband, who has it medium rare. I have been there a few times before, but never for Sunday lunch. Will definitely be going back and highly recommend it.

For starters I got the prawn pasta and the mixed grill for the main both were 10/10
We will definitely be returning!

We love the food at Aqua and always head there for a special occasion. I wrote on the booking that it was my husbands birthday but this was not acknowledged. My daughter ordered from an adult menu and could not finish her pasta. I said it would be good to have a children's menu and they said they did have one (Arrghhh! we were not offered it so assumed they did not have one). But service is efficient and fairly friendly and the food was lovely.

At the time of booking we were told we could take the Valentines menu or Ala Carte, however we were forced to take their Valentines menu once we arrived. This was highly overrated and overpriced. Wouldn’t recommend the place.

Great service, great food, great drinks in a very busy retaurant. Food plentiful, no long waits between courses and staff very attentive.
The only downside no one picked up on that it was a double birthday dinner despite writing it in the booking notes.

New Years Eve at Aqua! An amazing night!
Food was amazing, taste, presentation, value all superb.
The staff too were truly amazing, so friendly and happy.
Atmosphere was brilliant and relaxed, right up till the very end when we were probably 1 of the last 2 tables to remain. We made the absolute most of the music and danced the night away (although one recommendation don’t book the DJ again!)

Another great Christmas day at Aqua. Food and staff were great as always. Only improvement would be to add baby changing facilities to bathroom. First year with a little one, I wasnt aware there wasnt any and that proved a little bit of a struggle.

Highly recommend Aqua for any occasion.

Greeted by a smiling waitress as soon as I entered the restaurant and shown to my seat. She was quick to ask if I wanted a drink, but gave me and my friend some time to read the menu before taking our order for food. Food came quickly and was cooked well. Waitress was attentive, but did not ‘crowd’ us. We were allowed to finish our meal, at our pace. We were not rushed by the staff. An enjoyable evening, spent in a popular restaurant

Birthday dinner for our daughter food was tasty , staff were polite and attentive, just didn’t like the table we were given as it was her 21st so the round table would have been more special
