  • SHELL said: "A Great Place to Eat!
    First time we've tried this venue, and we will definitely be going again! Served by a very pleasant waitress who was happy to help in any way.
    The restaurant is modern, tasteful and has a good atmosphere. It was over half full, even on a Tuesday, which was a good sign.
    The food itself was mostly wonderful. I had the Calimari, soft and tender inside with a delicate crispy batter - fab!
    I also tried the Mushrooms and the Cornish crab - all delicious. One of my friends had the Lamb for Mains - it looked fantastic and it's not often I wish I was still a meat-eater, but this was one of them - it was a 'roast dinner sublime!
    My other friend ordered another Starter for her second course and this was received happily by the waitress. I had a mixed fish Mains - which was tasty - but I did struggle with all the sea shells therein...I would describe it as more of a Risotto than Sea food with rice...it was very pleasant.
    All in all, we had a great time and a lovely experience, so yes, I would definitely recommend the Aqua as a place to eat out - try it, it will not disappoint! "

    Met up with family for a meal, and weren't disappointed.... It's my second visit and food was superb!! Good choice of veggie dishes for my niece and portions were eye popping!! I tried the pork which was superbly moist and moorish, 7 of us chose from Ravioli, Duck and king prawn pasta. Had a round table which we thought would be squashed but worked very well. 10/10 for food, will def go again.....a great find!!! "

    " Booked online 4 days in advance, dinner for 7 adults & 2 children and then ensured that I called and confirmed the booking on morning the day mentioning my TC membership.
    No problems using my card, we all had cocktails with our meals, so without it the bill would have been £200+easily.

    The A La Carte menus clearly states (at the bottom) that a discretionary 12.5% will be added to the bill...so it really shouldn't come as a surprise...and considering the TC saving outweighs it I really didn't & don't see a point in disputing it. They are a small local business trying to survive after all, not a huge chain.

    However, I have travel to the US frequently where tipping at least 15% for EVERY single service is the norm, and when its culturally enforced I do feel slightly annoyed, so I understand why some of the reviewers were upset.

    My only critique is the state of the restaurant itself, wear & tear has set in and the decor/ furnishings looked a little shabby. But it was clean.

    So if your looking for nice tasty food, decent UK (not US style!) customer service with a brilliant TC discount, away from C. London then this is the spot.

    I'll be back! "

    " went here last Monday 2nd March with my husband and daughter. We did not book as felt that on a Monday lunchtime if it was busy then we would just go somewhere else. I told the waiter that we had a tastecard and he said that we could not use it as we should have booked 2 hours in advance. By then we had our drinks so stayed put and paid the full £88 bill. Disappointed to say the least as just before writing this review I checked to see if there was anything to say this on their description but there isn't. "

He said the bill cannot be that cheap! Do not recommend this restaurant. "

    Thank you Aqua. We wouldn't have found this restaurant without Taste Card membership.

    I normally prefer to leave a 10% ish cash tip, as that way the waiting staff are more likely to get the money. We decided just to pay the bill with the 12% service added, having read other feedback regarding this. "

    Firstly I will say that I still think that Aqua is good value for money but having gone there approx 6 times in the last year (including having celebrated my birthday there) sadly I felt the standard had changed on my last visit. For me it was easy to see, as the menu remains the same but the taste and standard of cooking had dropped :( (change of chef maybe??) I always start with the halloumi and the salad was not seasoned and it was far too oily. I was with friends and asked them about their main courses as in the past I have had their dishes...fish platter and Kleftico. Fish platter once again no taste, needed seasoning apparantly and I noticed the kleftico wasn't as pretty in presentation which is normally excellent in this restaurant. Lamb can be fatty but there seemed rather a lot on the cut...could have just been unlucky as normally you get a Shank but this was not. My dish was beef medallions which I accept I asked for well done, but when they arrived they were actually BURNT. So extremely hard were they that the sauce did nothing to soften them, even when I asked for some extra gravy. I just chewed my way through hating it, but not wanting to complain. The staff are nice, but either too few of them or not as attentive as they should be as I was not able to get the wine that I asked for with my main course until we were on the dessert, when really by this point I wanted coffee. You then have the issue of the 12.5% service charge which is meant to be optional. It isn't because you feel embarrassed and uncomfortable if you don't leave it. 10% would have been more than enough but we paid and left, none of us raving about the food. I felt sad as I had been the one to recommend the venue. I personally didn't enjoy my evening which was then compounded by finding a parking ticket on my car as there is road works along the front of the venue on both sides of the road and it seems that a whole bunch of us got tickets as the restriction notices were contradictory, so be warned people!....not the Restaurants fault of course but it would have been nice to have had an enjoyable meal to compensate! Hoping for better if and when I return. Always enjoy the music though so Thanks Guys for that! "

  • Belgin said: "Beware of service charge!
    Dined here and had a lovely meal with a group of friends. When the bill came the 'optional' service charge was felt to be rather excessive so we declined to pay it and left a cash tip. The waiter came back to us and rather aggressively accused us of not paying the bill fully. We were told we had to pay as we had a tastecard. One of the group paid the extra money to save a scene and spoil a good evening.
    Later when I called the manager, he said because of the tastecard deal the optional charge is expected. I explained that there was nothing on the tastecard site saying this but he insisted that was the expectation.
    I have dined here many times before and always had a nice meal and never had this issue with the optional service charge.. Suffice to say, Aqua will not be on my list of restaurants to visit in future. So if you go the food is great but beware of the service charge. "

    First time we've tried this venue, and we will definitely be going again! Served by a very pleasant waitress who was happy to help in any way.
    The restaurant is modern, tasteful and has a good atmosphere. It was over half full, even on a Tuesday, which was a good sign.
    The food itself was mostly wonderful. I had the Calimari, soft and tender inside with a delicate crispy batter - fab!
    I also tried the Mushrooms and the Cornish crab - all delicious. One of my friends had the Lamb for Mains - it looked fantastic and it's not often I wish I was still a meat-eater, but this was one of them - it was a 'roast dinner sublime!
    My other friend ordered another Starter for her second course and this was received happily by the waitress. I had a mixed fish Mains - which was tasty - but I did struggle with all the sea shells therein...I would describe it as more of a Risotto than Sea food with rice...it was very pleasant.
    All in all, we had a great time and a lovely experience, so yes, I would definitely recommend the Aqua as a place to eat out - try it, it will not disappoint! "

    Met up with family for a meal, and weren't disappointed.... It's my second visit and food was superb!! Good choice of veggie dishes for my niece and portions were eye popping!! I tried the pork which was superbly moist and moorish, 7 of us chose from Ravioli, Duck and king prawn pasta. Had a round table which we thought would be squashed but worked very well. 10/10 for food, will def go again.....a great find!!! "

    " Booked online 4 days in advance, dinner for 7 adults & 2 children and then ensured that I called and confirmed the booking on morning the day mentioning my TC membership.
    No problems using my card, we all had cocktails with our meals, so without it the bill would have been £200+easily.

    The A La Carte menus clearly states (at the bottom) that a discretionary 12.5% will be added to the bill...so it really shouldn't come as a surprise...and considering the TC saving outweighs it I really didn't & don't see a point in disputing it. They are a small local business trying to survive after all, not a huge chain.

    However, I have travel to the US frequently where tipping at least 15% for EVERY single service is the norm, and when its culturally enforced I do feel slightly annoyed, so I understand why some of the reviewers were upset.

    My only critique is the state of the restaurant itself, wear & tear has set in and the decor/ furnishings looked a little shabby. But it was clean.

    So if your looking for nice tasty food, decent UK (not US style!) customer service with a brilliant TC discount, away from C. London then this is the spot.

    I'll be back! "

    My friend and I visited on a Thursday evening. It was quiet around 6 but got busier around 7. The service was great, everyone was really friendly. For our mains we both had a pasta dish which was excellent. To drink we had the passion fruit mojitos & porn star martinis. There was a service charge which was added however I didn't mind this as we knew before hand. Overall great food and good service. "

    " went here last Monday 2nd March with my husband and daughter. We did not book as felt that on a Monday lunchtime if it was busy then we would just go somewhere else. I told the waiter that we had a tastecard and he said that we could not use it as we should have booked 2 hours in advance. By then we had our drinks so stayed put and paid the full £88 bill. Disappointed to say the least as just before writing this review I checked to see if there was anything to say this on their description but there isn't. "

    Dined at restaurant with our 2 children. Booked table with taste card on phone. When we ordered they told us what items were not included in taste card offer. But when bill arrived we were not given appropriate discount. The manager shouted and argued with us tellling us not to come back. Very rude and awful behaviour from restaurant staff. He said the bill cannot be that cheap! Do not recommend this restaurant. "

    I went there in June 2014 with a friend for our birthday treat and we were pleasantly surprised. The wait for food wasn't too long and both the starter and main course was delicious, I would come again. I didn't realise that I could use my Tastecard for a discount so that was a negative. "

    " Lovely food. Well cooked and presented.We really enjoyed it.
    Thank you Aqua. We wouldn't have found this restaurant without Taste Card membership.

    I normally prefer to leave a 10% ish cash tip, as that way the waiting staff are more likely to get the money. We decided just to pay the bill with the 12% service added, having read other feedback regarding this. "

  • buddha25 said: "Disappointed!
    Firstly I will say that I still think that Aqua is good value for money but having gone there approx 6 times in the last year (including having celebrated my birthday there) sadly I felt the standard had changed on my last visit. For me it was easy to see, as the menu remains the same but the taste and standard of cooking had dropped :( (change of chef maybe??) I always start with the halloumi and the salad was not seasoned and it was far too oily. I was with friends and asked them about their main courses as in the past I have had their dishes...fish platter and Kleftico. Fish platter once again no taste, needed seasoning apparantly and I noticed the kleftico wasn't as pretty in presentation which is normally excellent in this restaurant. Lamb can be fatty but there seemed rather a lot on the cut...could have just been unlucky as normally you get a Shank but this was not. My dish was beef medallions which I accept I asked for well done, but when they arrived they were actually BURNT. So extremely hard were they that the sauce did nothing to soften them, even when I asked for some extra gravy. I just chewed my way through hating it, but not wanting to complain. The staff are nice, but either too few of them or not as attentive as they should be as I was not able to get the wine that I asked for with my main course until we were on the dessert, when really by this point I wanted coffee. You then have the issue of the 12.5% service charge which is meant to be optional. It isn't because you feel embarrassed and uncomfortable if you don't leave it. 10% would have been more than enough but we paid and left, none of us raving about the food. I felt sad as I had been the one to recommend the venue. I personally didn't enjoy my evening which was then compounded by finding a parking ticket on my car as there is road works along the front of the venue on both sides of the road and it seems that a whole bunch of us got tickets as the restriction notices were contradictory, so be warned people!....not the Restaurants fault of course but it would have been nice to have had an enjoyable meal to compensate! Hoping for better if and when I return. Always enjoy the music though so Thanks Guys for that! "

  • Belgin said: "Beware of service charge!
    Dined here and had a lovely meal with a group of friends. When the bill came the 'optional' service charge was felt to be rather excessive so we declined to pay it and left a cash tip. The waiter came back to us and rather aggressively accused us of not paying the bill fully. We were told we had to pay as we had a tastecard. One of the group paid the extra money to save a scene and spoil a good evening.
    Later when I called the manager, he said because of the tastecard deal the optional charge is expected. I explained that there was nothing on the tastecard site saying this but he insisted that was the expectation.
    I have dined here many times before and always had a nice meal and never had this issue with the optional service charge.. Suffice to say, Aqua will not be on my list of restaurants to visit in future. So if you go the food is great but beware of the service charge. "
