“Surpassed Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Found this little restaurant from reviews via Trip Advisor. Visited and stayed in Macclesfield over the Easter Weekend. Really unusual place, appeared to have once been someones end of terraced house. As a stranger to the town, definately wouldn't have found it without the aid of Sat Nav has it's not in Macclesfield town centre.
Fantastic choice of very different Tapas dishes - no starters as such, just a good selection of dishes to choose from, all cooked to order. We choose 4 dishes to share including an unusual Foccacia bread with balsamic and oil dip. Their skinny fries with parmesan and black pepper were to die for ! We felt we had room for one more dish which was not a problem and chose the chillie meatballs. Good selection of unusual beers, all bottled. We had no problem getting a table as we booked the week before, but would not like to turn up without a reservation as the place only seats about 12! maybe 16 at a squeeze. Would be a fantastic place for a special celebration and have the place to yourselves. The 2 guys who ran it were friendly and very helpful. Can't ever see us visiting again, but can well recommend this place if you are passing through Macclesfield. One note of advice - they only take cash, not even debit cards.

“Great for a family party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Last night my family and I tried out Aquila for my birthday. Basically we were served lots of different dishes we could share and all of them were delicious. It's a very friendly atmosphere and as we were the only people there it was like being in a private dining room.. We enjoyed trying things we probably wouldn't have ordered if we had had to choose just one dish. Will definitely go back for morning coffee or afternoon tea when in town. You just have to remember it's cash only but hopefully in the future they will take card payments.

“"Seriously, how good!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I went for a meal there yesterday with my friends, one of which had been there once before and said it was amazing. With very good prosecco, mouth watering tasty food and a wonderful friendly atmosphere I couldn't help but realise how much I was repeating "seriously, how good!" Without a doubt a lovely addition to the all the other wonderful bars and restaurants macc has to offer.
