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.
Nice place, good atmosphere
Lovely friendly service. Great atmosphere. A perfect location for our French meet up :)
Great food. Multiple servers checked to make sure we ordered drinks. Food was a bit slow but delicious non-the-less.
Booking and confirmation service were easy to use.
Very relaxed atmosphere. There were a number of small children with us and they were safe and happy the whole time. Thanks!
great for after work drinks
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!
Staff were assholes at the end of night.
First time there excellent food and service 👍
Many thanks to Akva for fantastic event! Very quality venue, helpful staff and great food. Wee Dub Festival had great time with you. We love to back again next year xx
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.
We had a really great time on Monday night, the venue and food was amazing! Everyone really enjoyed themselves and I'm sure we'll be back soon!
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 .
Lovely vibe for rugby and everyone loved the meatballs!
Super office night out - thanks again!
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.
Nice range of food and great service Really friendly staff
We had a large group (~30) for dinner and drinks. The team accommodated us all really well. The food was good and all came quickly. The service was brilliant
Great service, lovely food and wine, nice relaxed atmosphere. Would go back again if I were in the neighbourhood
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.
