“Very good for lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I've been here several times both for pleasure and for business. It never disappoints. The menu is well stocked with uncomplicated, well prepared dishes. I love the huevos estrellados (entrantes) and the rice dishes (not to be confused with paella). Service is always swift and courteous and I've never experienced an uncomfortable wait during a sitting. The kitchen is run really well, even when the restaurant is busy. The terrace is lovely for outdoor seating, but I'd opt for dinner than lunch. It can get a little hot out there, right alongside the beach.

“Brilliant food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We recently dined at Aqua as part of our team event in Barcelona. I am always nervous of restaurants that put a lot of emphasis on the style and decor of the place as it doesnt always translate into good quality food. In this case though the food was just brilliant with the Cod carpaccio one of the best I've ever had. The selection of dishes was a nice mix between fish and meat , which is great when you need to cater for a fussy crowd. Choice of wines was pretty good. Defnitely worth a visit if you fancy something a little more upmarket at very good prices.

“Very pleasant afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We arrived around 3pm on a week day afternoon. The hostess was very pleasant. We sat out on the terrace for a wonderful view of the sea. The service was good. Our food was delicious. We had appetizers, entrees, dessert, and a bottle of cava for about $100. Meals like this make vacations special.

“Good Enough but Sleepy Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our team of 8 had dinner at Agua as it was located close to our hotel near the marina. The food was good (not great) but the service was very variable. The person who greeted us upon arrival was great. He took our coats and we had a glass of wine in 90 seconds. The hostess and waiter seemed to come from a different world. They were not terrible but were apathetic about seeing if we had drinks, taking orders and checking back with the table. Good food but not strong enough to make it a destination or to repeat a visit.

“Good food good service but not GREAT”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We arrived in this restaurant without booking and got a table because we arrived early by Spanish standards. The weather was particularly bad so the terrace was closed. The atmosphere is good and the deco is appealing. Food was below my expectations, we chose the fish carpaccio and ham and chips for starters followed by a steak. Not bad but not excellent. I'll try it during the summer. It is however a place with a good atmosphere.
