Firstly you will be greeted by very happy welcoming staff. The bar down stairs is very tastefully decorated. You have a wide choice of cocktails that are freshly made & a great wine menu. Upstairs is the restaurant. You will be taken to your table & jackets or coats will be hung up for you. The food is exceptionally amazing, beautifully displayed & full of flavour. You pay for quality, & great service here. I took my mum & step father for there birthday. They enjoyed every moment & will definitely be returning in the future. The table was beautifully displayed, the staff were amazing. We love coming here. The food is a top 5*!

Dear Andreahayman

How kind of you to give such a positive review and it's good to hear that your experience on your mum and step father's special occasion was worthy of a 5* rating.

Me and my friend, went to this restaurant because people recommended it to me. The food was good enough but the service wasn't, we had to wait quite a bit for the main, and the restaurant wasn't even busy. The food was good, it could do with improvement with the flavour, but overall it was good enough. The restaurant was good looking, and so was the food.

Dear 498james1972

You gave a 4* rating and I'd like to thank you very much for that, but regarding your comment on the length of time you had to wait for a main course, I am wondering what dishes you ordered? All our dishes are freshly cooked to order and some do take considerably more time than others, but cooking in this way guarantees they are presented at their best. If this process wasn't explained to you by your server, then I do apologise.

Dear Nessie60

We're glad you enjoy coming to Aqua Eight and yes, at peak times (Fri - Sat ) we do have to operate two sittings but only for dinner. If you prefer to dine in the early sitting, you're most welcome to retire to the garden or the downstairs bar and continue enjoying your evening.

Had a fantastic meal with friends. The food was excellent - would definitely recommend the crispy duck. The service was also excellent - the staff are very friendly. We have been a couple of times now and every time the food and service is top quality. We will go back next time we are in Ipswich ;)
