Aqua Mediterranean Meze Bar and Grill is the brainchild of two highly experienced chefs, Dasos Charalambous and Dario Nardo. Both have trained and worked in some of London's top hotels and seized the chance to open their own restaurant when the right premises came up in South End. Aqua Brasserie Croydon They liked the look of the contemporary-styled eaterie at 33-35 South End and with a few tweaks here and there to lend just a little more sophistication, opened their brasserie. "Our aim is to offer people a place where they can enjoy quality food, at reasonable prices in a place where they can sit and chill," said Dasos. And I have to say the food really is first class. It's nothing too fancy - just simple, quality food cooked to perfection.

Very. Ice evening - good food and atmosphere

If you are looking for simple food, excellently cooked and presented, then look no further. This was an 'accidental ' find, as my friends and I simply did not know what kind of food we wanted.

Having agreed to meet some friends for a quiet Monday evening drink, we decided to be sensible and get some dinner as well. It was an easy choice to arrive at Aqua, having been there before and enjoyed it. Added bonus was that as it was Monday night it was Steak Night, meaning 50% off the price of steaks, and... More

My friends and I recently came to Aqua Brasseria for a friends birthday meal and we was very disappointed with the level of customers service. There was around 12 of us and we believe we was mistreated because we were a young group of friends, Firstly only 9 of us had arrived and the waitresses kept pressuring us to order... More

Had a catch up meal with my friend and tried the set meal, two courses £15 or three for £18. Good portions and great meals to choose from. Crayfish to start and Salmon as a main cooked to perfection. Newly refurbished too and staff are wonderful.

We were a party of ten but this did not phase the staff at all & were duly seated at the back near the kitchen, normally a choice I would not make but it was interesting to see the Chefs at work. Everybody complimented the food from the starter to main course all arrived simultaneously & beware portions are large... More

Lovely restaurant, best fillet steak and I'm fussy about red meat. £21 a main meal but worth it, lovely staff. We always have a good evening here. Been a few times, once for my birthday with girlfriends and also for our anniversary, both times were great.

What a wonderful restaurant! The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The menu is varied but not overly so with something for everyone. All of our dishes were fresh and tasty and very much enjoyed. We had a very loud table next to us that preferred to shout at each other rather than speak, we were glad when they had... More

I've been coming here for 6 years and I'm never disappointed. From the get go I'm greeted like an old friend. Ambience is great for dining with friends and especially celebrations. We thoroughly enjoyed two- three course meals including creamy chicken penne pasta, crispy duck salad, moist roast pork, fish feast, sticky toffee pudding with ice cream and vanilla pan... More
