Description: Aqua Mediterranean Meze Bar and Grill is the brainchild of two highly experienced chefs, Dasos Charalambous and Dario Nardo. Both have trained and worked in some of London's top hotels and seized the chance to open their own restaurant when the right premises came up in South End. Aqua Brasserie Croydon They liked the look of the contemporary-styled eaterie at 33-35 South End and with a few tweaks here and there to lend just a little more sophistication, opened their brasserie. "Our aim is to offer people a place where they can enjoy quality food, at reasonable prices in a place where they can sit and chill," said Dasos. And I have to say the food really is first class. It's nothing too fancy - just simple, quality food cooked to perfection.

Very good food but if the restaurant is busy and you don't like crowds not for you. Have certainly made the most of the floor space

Had another wonderful meal at Aqua baked cod with pea and saffron rice delicious. Chocolate brownie with summer fruit and ice cream the best l have ever tasted. Really impressed my cousin who visited us from New York, celebrated a joint birthday, they even put a candle on the chocolate brownie and sang Happy birthday! Aqua staff very helpful, ambience and music excellent. Thank you Aqua for a lovely evening

This was my third visit here. I was very disappointed. Either they've changed chefs or they've had to cut down on their food budget, but what ever the reason their food isn't as tasty as it was a couple years ago. It was very bland and average, so although we had a discount card it still wasn't value for money. I ordered the duck, there wasn't anything special about it. I ordered the tirumisu, it was very creamy with hardly any sponge or coffee flavour. It's quite sad that this place isn't up to standard. The staff are lovely and the decor is beautiful, so its a shane the food isn't nice.

Had another great meal in Aqua last Saturday evening, this time with a friend. Service was excellent. We asked to be near a window and were duly seated by the open windows. Our waiter was very attentive and the food delicious.
I have always found that staff in restaurants and hotels both here and abroad react to the attitude of the customer.We have never encountered a miserable member of staff in Aqua and have had many meals there. Would recommend it to everyone.
