Great food. Multiple servers checked to make sure we ordered drinks. Food was a bit slow but delicious non-the-less.

Very relaxed atmosphere. There were a number of small children with us and they were safe and happy the whole time. Thanks!

Our whole group were really impressed with Akva. From how easy it was to make the initial booking, to the brilliant customer service on the evening. We were delighted when we found out your restaurant is dog-friendly and will be recommending you highly to everyone we know. Thank you for a brilliant visit!

We were very well looked after throughout our time there. We were a large group, mostly visitors from overseas or England and Wales. Everyone commented on the venue, the staff and the food- delicious. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

Booking was striaghtforward, and the Akva team kept me informed of what was going on with overlapping bookings. Space set aside was ideal.

We were a large party of over 25 people, and the staff at Akva were fantastic. They had reserved a large space in the middle of the bar for us, and it was perfect for what we were looking for. The atmosphere was warm and relaxed and the staff friendly and helpful. They even didn't mind us singing happy birthday to the birthday girl halfway through. I would definitely recommend this place for somewhere chilled to spend quality time with friends and family.

We cannot understand why the Saturday main menu starts at 2 p.m We forgot that was the case and had planned lunch. However our Breakfast was delicious.

My friend and went to eat in a Friday evening and were greeted with unbelievably loud music.we were initially shown to a side table with a speaker directly overhead and could not hear each other at all .we asked to move and the very nice staff put us on a table near the bar.it was marginally better but as there was a private party upstairs and the bar is an open space , the music was still too loud to have a conversation. We had meatballs which were ok , quite basic , with mash and peas , (the house special) and a Romanian Pinot which was very average too. It was really disappointing, I hope it works better at lunchtime. Staff were doing their best to help us .

A friendly comfortable place. Helpful staff. Everyone said how good the venue was. Good for young ones up to 8 o’clock, tale-tennis as well. Good all round. Would recommend.

Ordered meatballs which were dry and obviously reheated. These had to be sent back as they were inedible. The replacement burger was quite nice, but I didn't go to a Swedish restaurant for a burger. Also, the prices on the online menu are out of date, so we paid more than expected.
