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.

Super meal

Went to this restaurant in South Croydon and had a great meal. On Monday nights they currently do 50% off their steaks so great value. I had a fillet steak and it was lovely. Prices for all other meals not cheap but reasonable. What you would expect from a good restaurant . If you have s gourmet... read more

They only take Tastecard on booking. We walked in on a whim, so couldn't use it. Everything was nice, until I got a bitter blast of nastiness on my Sea Bream. It hadn't been cleaned properly. I said so when the plates were cleared. No recompense or reduction was offered. £70 for the two of us. Shan't be going back... More

We visited on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was mainly full when we arrived but soon was only maybe half full. Staff were friendly but not very attentive we found. There is not much space between tables, it is hard not to knock your neighbours table when moving about. We shared the platter, the food was varied and good quality,... More

Here for a colleagues leaving lunch and the food was fantastic. Something for anyone and large portions.They offer a set menu at £12 for two courses or £15.00 fr three including steak.Conditions do apply i.e days/times.Considering only one waiter he did remarkably well but sure he could use a bit of help!

Decided to try Aqua in Croydon as it had been recommended by a couple of friends. Have to admit was a little worried as we were taking some friends there and normally we would have tried out the restaurant first. It was very busy, which is usually a good sign,but had a lovely atmosphere. The staff were friendly and quite... More

If I had an option to dine elsewhere I would definitely avoid this restaurant. I have visited this place with my wife yesterday ( Saturday) and decided to choose their lunch offer of 3 courses for £15. 1. It was a very sunny day and we could see the interior of the restaurant very clearly and it needed a good... More
