It was a very pleasurable experience with my boyfriend and my father in law. I never wanted to try sushi before and I started with some cooked chicken which tasted delicious. The sushi looked delicious too and I decided to try it...and loved it!. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere lovely. The service was amazing and the personnel smily and very helpful explaining the dishes and taking care of us in anything we needed. I do recommend it to anyone who want to impress and have a great time.
The friendly service and fresh food would have won this restaurant an additional star were it not for the price. At £49pp for the bottomless prosecco option, the roughness around the edges shows.
If you're positioning yourself as at that price you need to pay attention to the details. Scuffed tables and chairs won't cut it. The unnecessarily dark bathrooms left every member of our party asking where the bins for the paper towels were. There is no flow between the beautiful terrace and the dark inside dining area.
The food was lovely, but not mind blowing, and while the right amount for our group, it certainly wouldn't satisfy a more hungry diner.
They have a great location, nice space and good food. A facelift would go a long way to making it feel a real treat.
The normal rules of bartending do not apply at Aqua. My understanding is that if the barman asks two of you who is next and you acknowledge that was the other person, the barman will mentally note this and come back to you next. This had certainly been the case in every bar/pub/club/festival/etc. I have attended in my 22 years of legal drinking. Except at Aqua. Woeful service. And it wasn't even busy...
Very nice interior and beautifully decorated food.
Terrace can be very nice on a nice day!

Could not get in due to the bouncers. Their excuse for not letting 4 guys in was a) one of us was wearing trainers but they let a guy in who was also wearing trainers and b) later in the conversation the other bouncer said we had been drinking so we weren't allowed in but it was 1030/11pm and everyone who was allowed in had at this point had a few drinks and people on the rooftop bar had a few drinks in them so I deem that the bouncers had a power trip and have probably been told to refuse a group of guys. Appalling behaviour. I would not recommend this place to anyone
