Description: 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.

Visit Aqua on Sunday lunch, wonderful meal and great value, the food itself was excellent, lots of choice and good size portions. The staff were very welcoming, the whole experience was really good. Definitely recommend.

second Sunday lunch at Aqua but not as good as the first time. Not offered any bread, side plates were removed after starter had been served so something was meant to go on them. Service was patchy but they add 12.5% to the bill. Roast potatoes were soft and hadn't had the eyes removed, vegetables were uninspiring. Looks like others... More

Went here on a Friday night with friends, we all ordered starters & mains and two bottles of wine. The bill (incl service charge) was £40 each which I felt was reasonable. I had the scallops to start and the sea bass as a main which were both delicious. My one critique would be the sea bass was a little... More

We have often eaten here - lunchtimes and evenings. The restaurant can be quite pricey but the food is great - they do various deals and we often go for these, especially when we go for a 'work' lunch. The staff are very friendly and the house white wine is very nice - slightly lemony (great with fish). Best to... More

Dined here to celebrate a friend's 65th birthday and sadly overall I found the experience disappointing. The choice of food was good if a little pricey. The starter, I had soup, was good. For the main course I chose a medium rare steak which was dry rather than juicy as you'd expect and I wasn't alone in this view. My... More

A good resturant, with a nice feel and prices to match. Food took a while to come, but boy was it good, the plate was cleaned nicely. Just a heads up, service charge is included, and could get pricey on the weekend, but i will certainly recommend on a weekday. Happy new year!

Went with a girl friend for a night out on a Friday at the beginning of December and we had a really great time. There were a couple of quite large office Christmas parties that evening but we still received a great service and were never overlooked. The food is very good and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.... More

I visited this restaurant when they first opened and was disappointed then and after going again last night I'm afraid my opinion hasn't changed. It was for a company party so I wasn't expecting high quality food as I know that mass-bookings often result in slightly poorer quality dishes but half of the main turkey dish was inedible. Either the... More

My husband and I went to Agua on a Saturday night in December to celebrate our anniversary. We had been past a number of times and decided to give it a go. Mistake. We arrived to what can only be described as a defeating sardine can. They had crammed people into every inch of the place. We were seated next... More
