Aqua will showcase Chef Patron Dasos Charalambos’s culinary flare and his Mediterranean heritage. His dishes encompass the flavours and textures of the region in a heady and delicious fusion of Greek, Italian and French cuisine.Aqua’s outstanding reputation for food and service continues to grow with each new opening. Now Blackheath joins the list to offer a genuinely fresh taste of the Med, a lively atmosphere and simply superb food and affordable prices.Aqua insists on only the best produce from its suppliers. Everything is made from scratch and cooked on the premises. Aqua’s competitively priced menus include a set lunch menu Monday to Friday with two courses for £12 and three courses for £15. The set dinner menu is £15 for two courses and £18 for three courses.One of the highlights of Aqua’s menu is its 50% off all steaks deal on Monday evenings. All beef is British and dry aged for 28-days to give it a great flavour a texture. The a la carte menu main courses start at around £10 and go up to around £23 for a fillet steak – unless it’s Monday night of course! Aqua Bar & Grill opening soon at the site formerly occupied by Bella Vista Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a true Greek eating experience. Located near Greenwich, we set the standard for Greek and Italian Family Restaurants in South East London.

A nice surprise

We often visited here when known as the Bella Vista and always enjoyed the experience. We decided to try the new restaurant Aqua for dinner one Thursday. The ambience was good as was the service we received. Food was of a reasonable quality although the Lamb Kleftiko was a little fatty, potatoes... read more

This restaurant was new to us and we were pleasantly surprised not only by the decor, friendliness of staff but the quality of food. Good choice of dishes from Mediterranean cuisine, we chose the meze starter for two and wild mushroom risotto as starters then two had mixed grill and another the kleftiko, all of which were lovely ( exception...

We went for Mother's Day lunch so it was a fixed menu at £25 a head - or maybe £26.95 for the adults, with a separate children's menu at something like £18 per head. For 2 adults and 2 children, with no wine or alcohol but fizzy water, orange juice and a coke the bill came to £100 once service... More

Nobody was rude. The order was correct and the wine was nice. However... The service took so long and the food was not a great quality. The fish dishes looked good but my mixed grill was a selection of burnt offerings and a couple of chips. Really liked the setting and layout. Could do better. Must do better. Such a... More

Went in as lunch still offered up to 5pm. Reasonable meal and food ok. Friendly staff. Can be a bit chilly at front this time of year with door opening and closing but at least these tables free when have not booked.

We have been to Aqua a few times before in the evening but not on a Friday night.  We thought it a very pleasant restaurant, decent food and nice service.  The staff tonight were charming and our comments are based on a what is maybe a Friday night atmosphere that the public wants.  After our starter someonTe turned the music up.  The...
