On a recent visit to Broadstairs we ate each evening at Aqua 43. There is a varied menu to suit everyone including children. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food itself was well cooked with fresh products, although be aware the roast potatoes were very hot! I wish we were there longer as their were a couple of items... More

We ate here twice, first time we were so pleased with what we had eaten that we returned a couple of nights later. Very friendly staff, quick to find a place for us, quick with taking the orders and bringing the food. It closes at 8 pm so early eating is advisable but it is worth going early. The food... More

We had a fish, chips and mushy peas lunch here... The portions were large and the food coked well. Probably the nicest fish and chips I've had in Broadstairs. The other customers seemed very happy with their meals too. The staff were friendly and there is a good dessert menu..although we were too full to try it!Recommended.

The food was ok, not great for me with lactose intolerance as my only choice was omelette. I didn't feel there was anything special and the quality was just ok. Service tried hard but not impressive. I wouldn't choose to go back but it filled me up when I needed it.

We were attracted by the gorgeous blue decor & weren't disappointed. I can be fussy when it comes to fish & chips as I hate oily food but our meals were cooked to perfection. Loved it & would definitely go back again. Great for all ages.

The staff are lovely and the fish and chips are not outstanding, but are very delicious. The blue decor is crazy but it adds character! Good for families (especially w/ kids)

Broadstairs is just about doable for a day trip - so we tend to be hungry after 2.5 hours in the car. Over the years, having tried most of the restaurants in the town, we keep coming back to Aqua 43. The food it tasty, hot and the portions are just about right (and leave room for Desert at Morelli's!).... More

Friendly service and decent food. Homemade chips are very good and not too greasy. Reasonably priced. Just wish they would not use sachets for vinegar !
