A stunning restaurant with fabulous food. We would have appreciated being contacted in advance to inform us that the restaurant was closing early on our Sunday evening meal. We felt a little rushed but really enjoyed our experience.

Absolutely love this restaurant - they really know how to cook a piece of meat. Have been twice now and each time the steak/lamb/beef was perfect - 4 very happy diners on both occasions!

Just watch out for the step down into the toilets!

For an informal business lunch Aqua was perfect. The pasta dishes were excellent and we enjoyed being able to sit outside. The tables were suitably distanced and it was an excellent lunch experience I hope to repeat.

There was tomato ketchup drizzled over my smoked duck but they did change it when asked. The food took a long time to arrive. I'd taken a couple of friends along as I said it was a great place to go so I was really disappointed. I hope it'll be a temporary blip.

We love their Sunday lunch menu and been multiple times. This time some items were not great - “Greek salad” was literally just a bit of fried haloumi with nothing else. Roast felt overdone. Waitress wasn’t interested and unhelpful - my elderly mother in law asked for a tartar souce and they didn’t bring it to her saying they never done this sauce while they literally had whitebait served with tartar sauce on the menu!!

Once again great food, service and atmosphere. this celebrating our anniversary and it could not have been better. Great choice just a shame we did not have room for a desert!
We will be back and will be planning my 70th birthday with possibly a Sunday lunch or evening meal with friends and family in October. Great to have them back.

The food is lovely, the cocktails are good.
It is a bit pricey, the sort of place you go for an occasion rather than just a meal out.
Service was good even though it was busy and the servers didn’t stop for a minute.

The food was very enjoyable overall. Service was okay, though not as warm as it could be. I felt that they could be more flexible with the set meal plan as my daughter only wanted ice-cream which we were charged for when she could have had something far more elaborate at no extra cost. I pointed this out but the waitress just kept on saying that basic ice-cream wasn't included rather than empathising with the fact it would cost them less than a pudding from the set meal.

The staff was very rude and grumpy. They didn't want to help at all when I was asking about the father's day set menu. The staff wasn't very friendly or welcoming at all especially the lady with the brown hair in the ponytail. When I asked for some tap water she come and slammed the bottle of it down on the table in front of me. She was moody throughout the whole time she was serving us. I wasn't impressed with this level of service. In fact I was quite disappointed with it. I wanted to enjoy a nice day with my dad with some good food but instead the atmosphere she created whilst serving our table was disgusting. I will not be booking a table with Aqua anytime in the near future. The food was okay but nothing amazing so because of all of this I will not be returning.
