Drinks were expensive but the food was good. Staff were child friendly and aware of holding back the little boy's food because he was asleep. The waiter said it was no problem and kept looking over till we were ready for his food to be cooked. Will definitely go back again.

There are absolutely NO negatives attached to this venue and the wonderful people who run it and work there. They made our night and I would not go anywhere else!! Why would you when you already have perfect!!!

We were a big group. The food was lovely but service could have been better. We were seated and no-one came back for 45 minutes, had to keep getting up to ask for water etc as there was another large group in the same area and most of service team were busy with them

The team at AKVA worked so hard to accommodate my very large party at short notice, pulling out all the stops to provide an amazing brunch with just the right relaxed atmosphere. Such a great space and friendly staff!

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.
