Akva is a social network in real life, where people meet, relax, work, eat and drink. The menu has Scandinavian influences as well as classic such as 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 two fabulous beer gardens at the front and back of the venue so when the sun is shining, there really is no better place to be!
It would be good to have the online portal be able to book for more than 2 hours.
I loved the excellent vegan range of food (though I'd love to see a vegan cake added, brownies are easy and taste amazing). The mocktails were bang on, loved them, whoever was on cocktail duty is excellent. The service was a little slow and our table remained dirty for a long time, but we were tucked behind a pillar so I guess we were quite out of sight.
I had great birthday! Thank you Akva🙂
Great service as ever.
Good vegetarian choices
I organised a 40th birthday party here for a friend on a Saturday afternoon. Given there was over 50 guests of all different age ranges the staff managed to look after us all with fantastic service & great food & drinks. Anna the Events Manager was great in the run up answering all my questions & making sure all was well on the day. Five stars all round!
Great atmosphere, good vegan food choice and great place for lunch with kids or cocktail evening with friends.
Good selection and great food even though the soup was a bit cold. They could definitely have done with a few more staff but the few that were there were very friendly.
A slightly wider variety of food would be nice, but it doesn't detract all that much from the excellent experience.
Always a great location to meet at.
Excellent service as ever. Very accommodating. Ps: Your feedback form out by 1 hour (the visit was at 1430).
I really enjoyed the friendly service, from management to servers. All very kind. And food was, as usual, great. Thanks for helping me to have a great afternoon with my friend, celebrating my birthday.
Staff were lovely. Friendly and helpful.
Great, simply great! Friendly, helpful!
Great service despite being very busy. Bit loud for the purpose of my last visit, but I’m a regular and always enjoy it.
I really enjoy this place. Staff are very kind a efficient. The food is good and so it is the coffee. If the weather is good, you can enjoy a nice breakfast/brunch outside the terrace. However, this time there was a table booked for 40 people that “blocked” a little bit the kitchen and we waited for our food 1:30h approximately. A part from that unusual experience I would highly recommend this place.
Kenny, Tasha, Frankie, Callum were a brilliant team! As soon as we walked I'm the door they greeted us, all the staff on team were so genuinely friendly and conversed so easily to us it felt very warm and personal, drinks were fantastic! Cocktails were pricey but they definitely gave you your money's worth, meal was beautiful the beef was so tender I felt so relaxed well done!
Akva is our regular go to bar. We love it. And the chips are perhaps the best in the whole world!!
We always love our outings to Akva: good food, good choice of drinks, lovely staff!
Staff were outstanding and went out of their way to meet the needs of our big group.
The London Barowners loved Akva. Akva is a nice Swedish styled place in Edinburgh We had a great time and will be back next time in Scotland. Great meatballs and great draught beer.
Always a wonderful atmosphere particularly at Christmas time! Akva was very busy with lots of big bookings including our own, however you would not have known by how attentive and friendly the staff were! Great experience!
Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff
Last minute issues with the Xmas menu but resolved quickly.
