We had a lovely lunch here on Sunday on our way home from a weekend away with my parents. What a lucky find as we hadn't had chance to check out any reviews beforehand. There's a very good choice on the menu, the portions are big (unfortunately we couldn't finish but were offered a 'doggy bag'), our food was hot... More

We have eaten at Aqua on a number of occasions over the years and are never disappointed. This is the perfect fish and chip style restaurant in a perfect unspoilt English seaside resort. Great food with great service.

We were having a short break with the mother in law who desperately wanted fish and chips on our first evening. I had of course checked out Trip Advisor and this was the one we chose. I telephoned the week before as I wanted to book a table (I know it's a fish and chip shop) as mum can't stand... More

This is our third time here and it's been perfect on every occasion. The kids loved it. Food is excellent and very nicely priced. Service is top drawer and the whole place is spotlessly clean. Can't recommend Aqua 43 highly enough. We'll be back for sure!

We can only speak of our visit, but the signs were there at the table next to ours who left most of their food. We had cod and chips, chicken Kiev and a child's fish bites meal. The fish was wafer thin and tasteless, the chicken Kiev tasted like an Iceland ready meal and the chips were awful, like they... More

Took my parents here as they hadn't been to Broadstairs. We were not let down either at this restaurant. Food pipping hot . The girls always friendly and great sense of humour. Restaurant very busy but worth waiting for. It's always clean & tidy. Will be back when we can. Keep going!!

My partner and I fancied fish and chips for lunch (well, you do when you're at the seaside, don't you) and, not knowing the local restaurants, we asked the ladies in the visitor information hut on the promenade where they would recommend. Their first recommendation was Aqua 43 so we gave it a go and are glad we did. The... More

After a long day on the Viking beach and before heading back to London, five of us (2 adults and kids 17,9 and 4 years old) we were looking for a good place to eat. i remembered reading about good portions and homemade food at Aqua 43 but for some reasons I thought they were open only for breakfast and...
