We visited your restaurant recently and we found that the bar is quite small not to much space to move around . The seating in the bar is very uncomfortable. When we asked for our drinks we were told they did not have them but we could see them and had to point them out to the so called barman... More

The food was good, but did not set me alight with praises, the staff were OK. I had a fish chowder which was tasty but lacking in body. My fish... More

Went to Aqua for a family get together. With a setting by the window to watch the sun go down the evening was complete when the food arrived. The fish restaurant with an expansive choice on the menu complimented by excellent service,the evening was a memorable one. The ambiance of Aqua,the setting and food presented everyone with great memories.

Overpriced food at below average quality!! Nicest part was the bread and wine. For A fish restaurant lacks quality, freshness and taste.

If you have the money, go here. Excellent service, excellent view and gorgeously prepared food. Was visiting from South Africa and it was one of the highlights of my trip.
