We visited for Sunday lunch, we hadn't booked and arrived at just gone 2. The gentleman that greeted us was warm and friendly. I ordered the spinach and feta parcel, nice but lacking feta. My husband had the mixed grill which was delicious and I had the stifado which was melt in the mouth. We were both too full for... More

Busy restaurant, to many seats hardly any room to move , staff friendly but under pressure, food was ok , nothing wrong but not wow either . Nice outside area for sunny days , quite expensive. A very average meal and dining experience.

I eat here quite regularly, and can honestly say it's one of the best places to eat in Croydon. With super friendly service, reasonable prices for good quality food, it makes it a no brainer. Tastecard can be used on most days other than Friday and Saturday, and gives great value for money. My favourite starter is the goats cheese... More

Decided to go out for a spontaneous meal on a Monday night. A friend recommended Aqua, so we thought we'd try it. We ordered crab salad and spinach filo parcels to start. The salad was lovely but unfortunately neither of us liked the film parcels. It was cooked well and seasoned well but our palette disliked it. The waitress noticed... More

warm welcoming friendly atmosphere souvlaki dish was superb, although the manager tempted me into having pork belly, as that's his favorite. The sticky toffee pudding was amazing,the staff polite and well mannered. The young female there runs around full of smiles singing and jolly, I spent the evening admiring the handsome manage's facial hair design, shame he is attached x

Who could miss the opportunity for a half price steak on a Monday? Splendid food, decent size portions and lovely staff without breaking the bank.

We have been here before and as we were having a small wedding we spoke with Aqua. From the start they were very helpful we always felt that they couldn't do enough to help us out. We booked and paid and we were allowed in the night before to decorate the room we were in... we were even offered a... More

Good quality food,atmosphere and great service. I nibbled on all meals on our table and my taste buds were pleased. Not sure it is food for children, but definitely for adults!

Description
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.
