We went to Aqua8 for our anniversary meal after hearing such rave reviews from our friends. We reserved out table well in advance and went on a Thursday to avoid the weekend rush. The bar/restaurant is nice and modern. The downstairs bar area was peaceful and cool. Bartender was not very friendly and not sure she knows how to smile.... More

My girlfriend and I really look forward to visiting as a treat. Booking essential. A cocktail downstairs pre-dinner then the easiest thing is to go for the "feed us" option on the menu, where the kitchen brings out its specialities to you. Not the cheapest restaurant in town but surely the best. With food and wine we normally pay £150... More

We have visited Aqua8 on several occasions and it has never failed to impress. Although you must book early there is a reason for this...the food and cocktails are yummy!! You are greeted by a warm and friendly welcome...We usually have a cocktail at the bar downstairs then head up to our table afterwards. The waiters/waitresses are very clear at... More

Went for a meal with my Dad on a week night (wednesday). Got there for 8.15 and as soon as the drinks arrived we were asked for our food order. We said that we would order some starters first and then our mains. The waiter told us that we better order the mains soon as the kitchen was closing by... More

Great place for the total night out. Excellent food and wine. Drinks at the bar a bit pricey, and there are other venues now in Ipswich with more accommodating bar staff. Good music and atmosphere

Great dining experience. quite pricey but worth it. If you prefer a quieter dining experience, avoid Fridays & Saturdays, those days can be quite manic and noisy.

Still the best food in town! Will continue to come back as often as I can. Soft shell crab, baked scallop with wasabi mayo both full of flavour! Phad Thai Noodles never disappoint! Love the cocktails also. Only feedback we gave was that the Chilli beef with scallions looks like its chicken. To which they assured us it's beef and... More
