This is a super place to eat, with wonderful service too.

“Fun evening, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Had a late night meal here with a group of 4.
Excellent service, very good English spoken so the dishes all explained in detail.
I had the goats cheese followed by the lamb rack and would recommend both.
All the food was delicious, the service was fun and friendly and the wine list very extensive and with lots of cheaper options.

“Balmy evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

A beautiful meal in pretty patio surroundings with lovely music and attentive staff. Fish was straight out of the sea and delicious and the stuffed guinea fowl melted in your mouth.

“Repeated return visits to very pleasant restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Definitely have enjoyed each visit to Aquarelle Restaurant both in 2012 and 2013. During winter months we dined indoors and found it very pleasant. Now with warmer weather having lunch outside was great ( except for aggravating smokers unfortunately but this happens every place out of doors ). The owner shook hands and spoke to every customer which creates a " feel good" atmosphere. The staff were very pleasant on every visit and the food was really nice each time. Will be back again in the autumn.

“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great place, staff really friendly, we went with a 6 year old child and they couldn't do enough for him, made a fuss of him and produced dishes that weren't on the menu. Attentive staff, but not in your face. Lovely food and good value for money.
