Critics Review
A new reason to make your way to Lewes…
8/10
Having lived in Brighton for nearly 5 years I am embarrassed to say that tonight is going to be my first time in Lewes. Just a 20 minute drive down the road, we are visiting the recently opened Aqua restaurant. From taking a quick look at their menu online, it is clear that Aqua serve a lovely variety of Italian dishes and I am very excited. We have booked a later table to make sure we are on time, which is great, because work has overrun and I have worked up a huge appetite. Lucy picks me up from the office and off we go.

Myself and girlfriend went in last night (6th August) for a meal. Good portions, great food and fantastic service. Lovely ambience, cocktails were cracking and the evening overall was superb. We even came back after we’d left for another drink as nowhere else local was as good! Thanks guys x

Personally this is great location for us as it is very near to home in Lewes. Parking is very easy with a Car Park in the same area. The staff were most helpful and efficient. I would certainly make use of Aqua again for one of those special occasions with family or friends.

On arrival restaurant was empty but looked very clean and inviting Waiting staff were very good attending to our needs We ordered our meal it arrived very promptly my wife ordered eggs Benedict and I ordered scrambled egg and salmon Unfortunately my wife’s meal was undercooked waitress said they would replace it with a freshly cooked one rather disappointing when you go out for breakfast together and you end up eating it separately was not impressed

Very accommodating when needed to change booking to later time, last minute. Kind and helpful about finding us a quiet table and Morgan, our waiter was excellent. A lovely evening.

Have visited this restaurant many times, although less recently due to its poor hygiene rating (1 out of 5!) On this occasion our food was fine. However, the service was VERY slow, despite the best efforts of a "Newbie" who was working his first day with the chain. Problem might have been that no one member of the waiting staff seemed to own a particular group of tables and therefore no-one appeared to be monitoring progress on any table.

We had a really lovely meal. The service was also great. We reserved a booth table, and that was fab for my young daughters. An excellent time had by us all. Thank you.

We visited Aqua for our wedding meal with 30 guests. Paulina the manager was fantastic in organising our meal and incredibly accommodating. The food was brilliant especially considering they were bringing out 30 dishes at a time, all of our guests were very happy and Aqua helped make our day even more perfect. Thank you so much to all the staff who looked after us. We'll def be back soon.

Young man with short blonde hair who initially served us made out experience very special, top bloke. Free flowing prosecco is an awesome brunch idea just a shame we felt slightly rushed by other servers.

First the Malbec tasted watery, so tried the Merlot which was the same... I ordered the Lobster, which had the texture of rubber and inedible... Lobster was removed from bill, along with very apologetic staff, along with free deserts... I must admit that I was disappointed all round, especially as my online booking said I had to vacate the table in 90 mins... not a venue for a date then, and would not have booked if I knew this beforehand... especially as it was a Monday night and virtually empty... Seriously needs a rethink...
