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

Overall experience good and food was excellent as usual. The only thing I found was it was very hot in the restaurant and despite it being winter it would have been better to have a small amount of ac on. It was also very noisy but that was due to the restaurant being full. If you want a quiet meal dont go in peak times opt for early evening meal around 6pm then it would be excellent. If you like a bit more vibe then I guess anytime is suitable.

This was my first time at Aqua and I was pleasantly surprised. The service and welcome from the host was very memorable. I took my dad for dinner and he is quite picky and critical of local restaurants as he dines in Mayfair and Knightsbridge very often, and therefore has high expectations. However he thoroughly enjoyed his meal and all our various requests for extras or modifications to the menu were completely accommodated! This made our evening even more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this lovely restaurant to others. It's a great addition to Croydon! I will definitely visit this restaurant again. Thank you to all the staff at Aqua!

I had a lovely birthday meal with my family and oldest friends. As always Betim and his team were excellent in making my birthday meal special. The food and service was great as it has been for the previous ten years.
I look forward to many more future meals and special occasions at aqua.

Went as a party of 6 on a Saturday night. Easy online booking. Waiting staff very friendly and attentive. Mini meze was very good as a starter although my whitebait was a little overcooked. Kleftiko was very good as was the calves liver.
A good experience overall.

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.
