Akva is a social network in real life. Akva is were people meet, relax, work, eat and drink. The menu has Scandinavian influences and also salads and burgers. We also like to have a good range for vegans and vegetarians due to our environmental ethos within our bars.
Akva has a fabulous beer garden, when the sun is shining in Edinburgh -there really isn’t a better place to be.
Really helpful events team made our party easy to organise. Thank you
We had a lovely time at my daughters joint Hen Party making flower crowns. The set up in Akva was excellent with ample space and a nice airy area,
Great place to have for a large group with kids
Nobody let me know the venue was closing at 4pm so my plans were a bit ruined really. Nice place but that really was a pain.
Service from the waiting staff was good but the kitchen took 45mins to produce simple brunch dishes! We were disappointed as we had to rush our food as we were going to the rugby and we thought we’d left plenty of time for a quick snack! Waitress couldn’t have been nicer and was very apologetic but not the best experience!
Great setting and great service.
Bad food in noisy place. Only three ladies - two out of order and the third with a broken seat. Service was very nice but did not disguise the terrible food
Very disappointed - we had made a booking for ten -a family occasion following an event at Escape Reality next door. When we arrived, we were told that we would have to wait 45 mins to an hour for our food - not possible with children in the group. We were not offered anything - a plate of nibbles or a drink by way of recompense. So we left, disappointed and frustrated - it spoiled a planned family occasion. We will not be back and we will not recommend you to anyone
Everyone had an excellent time and the service was very smooth. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Flawless! Big thanks to Cara on this one
Amazing space for family function, and top level service. Absolutely recommended
Service was a little slow but we weren't in too much of a rush so it was otherwise a fab visit with tasty food - we will be back!
Staff from the events team to the bar staff were amazing!
Booked a table of 12 work colleagues a week or two before, but were given three separate tables by the window. Was a shame as we all wanted to sit together and eat and bond.
Prompt service and friendly environment with a good selection of drinks
Excellent place to meet.
Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere, welcoming adults and children alike.
I booked upstairs at Akva for a private function. Staff were amazing, so helpful and relaxed! Everyone loved the space and the atmosphere Would definitely recommend Kath
Great venue, Excellent staff, Food was great. I would definitely book again. Thanks everyone.
The service was lovely, there was no rush it was at our pace and the pancakes were lovely as well!
Thank you for your flexibility and understanding with our event. You made it as easy as possible.
Great place, fantastic beer
We had a perfect experience at Akva. I would highly recommend!
Drinks were expensive but the food was good. Staff were child friendly and aware of holding back the little boy's food because he was asleep. The waiter said it was no problem and kept looking over till we were ready for his food to be cooked. Will definitely go back again.
fantastic venue for hosting a quiz night
