Went to Aqua 43 for a big breakfast in a party of 6. Staff couldn't be friendlier (when they heard that it was one of our party's birthday they brought her out a little bottle of prosecco to celebrate. The breakfast was filling and tasty. what more can you ask for after a night on the town?!

The restaurant is bright and welcoming. Staff are friendly and attentive. From the reviews I was expecting excellent fish and chips. Unfortunately this was not the case. I had plaice and chips. My guess would be that the plaice had been frozen and deforsted before frying as it did not hold together as fresh plaice would. The chips were inconsistent,... More

Whenever we visit Broadstairs we always pay a visit here. Bright welcoming interior, great cafe style food and friendly staff all go to make this the perfect pit stop after a brisk walk on the beach.

We have been coming to Broadstairs for years but this was our first visit to Aqua 43 which we stumbled on by accident as so many places were closed between Christmas and New Year. I'm not usually a fish and chip person but this was so delicious I cleared my plate. No soggy batter or greasy chips here and they... More

We recently stopped here, on a wind swept day, to get something to eat and to get in out of the cold. The catch of the day ( Haddock) was cooked to perfection and the chips were freshly made and not at all greasy.I wouldn't normally review something like Aqua 43 but I feel that people should know about it....

I loved the interior decor and the atmosphere with the fairy lights - made me feel like I was underwater or in a submarine; plus it was quite busy for a winter weekend, so felt cosy and welcoming. The staff were initially on the ball, greeting us, taking orders efficiently, and then the food came out. Fish and chips were... More

Had lovely fish and chips here last week with family. Fish and chips was cooked to perfection, with nice crispy batter and home made chips. Nice and clean with pretty twinkling lights making a very nice atmosphere in the darker evening. Friendly helpful staff taking time to explain options even though was a very busy time. Will definitely return.
