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.
Friendly, spacious. Good for groups and family friendly!
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
We had a brilliant post-wedding celebration in Akva on Sunday! The food, drinks and service were all great - thanks so much to all the team at Akva.
Great night in Akva for our training session !
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.
First visit and we’ll be back.food and wine excellent and top marks to our beanie wearing waiter.
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.
I had a leaving party during the day. The staff were helpful in providing cutlery etc for our cake.
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.
Nice food, speedy service, not rushed to leave, reasonable prices
We had a group event and everything was perfect. Cara was amazing with the organisation, the food and the service were great and everyone had a lovely time. Highly recommend the place!
Nice comfortable place for a family lunch, tasty food and space for the kids...
Amazing as always
I went hoping to get the famous Swedish lingustin but was dissapointed it was not available
Very good food and excellent service would recommend 😊
Was excellent to be in the area upstairs!
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.
Cara is a pleasure to work with and all the staff were extremely patient and helpful. We had a great time!
Decent food and good service in a pleasant setting
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.
