Fantastic evening, well organized and supported by Cara and team in advance as well as on the night. Cara, Calum and all staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and accommodated our every wish! The food was great and everyone enjoyed it. We hope to book our next event with you

I would highly recommend Akva to a variety of group types: families, work socials, casual meet-ups with friends. To me, Akva is a bit of an institution

We had a great time for my friend’s hen party. Cara and her team were very helpful, friendly and accommodating, with excellent communication throughout. It was great to have the private area for 20+ of us and the food was delicious. Everything went really smoothly. 5 stars all round & highly recommended. Thanks again! :-)

We booked upstairs for a party. Catering options weren't really suitable for small kids so we didn't bother but something simple like soup and bread would have been great to have.

I booked some space for drinks for 25 people on 18 April 2019. Cara, who I dealt with via email was very helpful. There was another party sharing the mezzanine space but this wasn't a problem as the venue was large enough to accommodate the two parties comfortably. Everyone who attended the leaving party (which was for two longstanding members of staff) had a really enjoyable evening and we would have no hesitation in using Akva for an event again. The only downside was that I had to tell the bartender how to make an Aperol Spritz :-) Not really a problem though and certainly didn't spoil the evening.

We had a great dinner with friends prior to our wedding. It was easy to book, the food was good, and it was a very enjoyable evening. Akva provides a very comfortable dining space, where you can eat, chat, and relax.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quietness of the upstairs (I expected it to be bustling) and was SO relieved that you allowed my party to sit upstairs by the window overlooking the canal. I teach workshops across Edinburgh under the brand Honeyed Bison and would love to come back regularly for future workshops. The beer/wine is also great. Everyone loved it.

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