“Yummy Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

My husband and I ate her on a recent trio to Bristol, we sat outside as the sun was shining, and had a delicious Sunday lunch, the staff are very welcoming and the restaurant inside is very nicely done. Would definitely eat here again.

“Quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Ate here during a recent business trip staying in Bristol Hotel. It was a Monday evening and so not too busy. There is a specials menu that is very good value before 7pm.

Had garlic mushrooms and a pizza and both were good quality.

Service was quite slow but we were not in a rush so did not mind too much.

“Consistently high standards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Been here a few times now and last night sat upstairs for the first time, usually like one of the window tables. Ate from the Classico menu which is available up to 1900 and it is very good value. Everything here is of a consistently high standard, staff are always friendly and accommodating, lovely ambiance, plenty of choice and food is always nice and exceptionally well presented. They also have a loyalty card scheme. Is now on our list of regular venues.

“Lovely food and cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I've visited here a numner of times, all of which have been met by a constant high standard of food, service, great atmosphere and amazing cocktails. The specials are always delicious, there hasn't been a dish to date that I haven't been impressed with.

On one visit my pasts wasn't quite spicy enough for my taste, the staff swiftly made me a fresh bowl of even spicier pasta and even offered to serve my friend with a fresh bowl of hers so that it wasn't cold by the time my fussy request had been met!

“Best meal ever...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Went to Aqua for lunch on Father's Day with my family. Despite the fact that it was very busy and quite a few of our party had very specific dietary requirements, nothing was too much trouble for our waitress.

The food was excellent and service was wonderful, and the manager (Georgia/Georgina?) was very knowledgable when we had some questions about the menu.

Overall a lovely experience, and one I have recommended to my friends.
