The food here is really good, and great value on the 2 course deals. Service was excellent and the restaurant has a really lively and select atmosphere. I'd recommend anyone to try it!

This was my second visit.

Great selection on the menu although at least one item has been on menu for 18 months which I had both times and it was lovely (Carpacio). The filet steak was very nice but you only get chips and a sauce. Any veggies or side orders are a extra.

Staff where very attentive and kept arriving to top up glasses with wine / water.

I had originally booked a table for 4, changed to 5 and then 6 of us arrived. They where more than happy accommodate.

Cost for 6 inc 6 bottle of wine, three course meals and bread & olives was around £240.

Expected a bit more from Aqua the menu looked really good and the restaurant itself looks like it might serve up something special. Starters were ok but my lobster was a big letdown it was poorly seasoned and overcooked so there was no flavour. Perhaps it’s best to stick to the pasta and pizza which looked nice and leave the lobster to the professionals.

Loved this place as it was firstly open on Monday night when everything else was shut. I visited here with my family and we enjoyed our meal. Whilst the Italian was not traditional Italian it was not terrible. Great for a nice night out but not exactly what I would call a real Italian resturant.

the cocktails weren't what we were used to
the cosmopolitan came half way up a martini glass i.e. hardly any cocktail at all
and it wasn't a happy hour drink
the caipirinha was basically rum poured over a glass of crushed ice with a few pieces of lime
not the refreshing cocktail that i'm used to
