Think Daneille P review below must have some kind of grudge, possibly if she didn't read what the taste card restrictions were but to say the food is bad because of that is just wrong. I've been coming here for 6 years. First came on Valentines day and the restaurant manager has made the evening for us ever since. It's... More

We had the wild mushroom risotto, a mix grill and the kleftiko (lamb cooked in red wine sauce) all very nicely cooked and very tasty. It is however... More

Really expensive for what you get. I had Kleftiko (basically lamb sunday roast) yes the lamb was tender but not much flavour in the "red wine jus". A glass of Rose wine, and for pudding Sticky Toffee Pud which was microwaved ! and blob of ice cream. They add a hefty 12.5% surcharge on your bill so for my 2... More

Mediterranean dish is always good. Waitress was very polite and helpful. Would be nice if she could let us know about the portions. However, food was very nice

Aqua is a superb modern fusion but mainly Mediterranean food restaurant situated in South Croydon. Very enjoyable surroundings and atmosphere. Attentive staff. Excellent food. Five of us ate her in late October, we all had different dishes ranging from rib of beef to seafood platter as well as pork belly. Great starters and pastas too. Sensibly priced we paid £231.00...

We hadn't booked however we were warmly greeted by the manager and shown our table in the window. Monday night is steak night were there is a 50% discount on their three different steaks so this is what we chose. Probably the best steak that all three of us had had for a long time. The starters were equally delicious.... More

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.
