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.

I ordered avacado spinach bendict it arrived minus the spinach - pointing this out the waitress apologised and said she would get some ! Half way through my meal she returned with raw spinach !!!! I feel if what you ordered does not turn up it should be dealt with urgently and my bill should reflect their error

The fish was very good, and so was the wine.

Really wonderful food... beautifully cooked and presented. It is rarer that eating out makes a genuinely positive impact as standards have raised across the board. That said, when you experience food that is really delicious, it is worth noting!

We have come to Aqua before and absolutely loved it. However on this occasion we were disappointed. We ordered the rissoto balls and a few orher starters to share between us to start. The cabbage starter was missing the parmesan and the rissotto balls were extremely salty. I couldnt eat it all because it was just like eating pure salt and then my partner felt sick after that and couldnt eat his main so we had to take it with us. We did mention it to the waitress and she explained there had been a problem with salt as she had some fishcakes that have the same breadcrumbs and they were really salty. Its a shame because we really loved Aqua before. The rissotto balls werent even taken off the bill so we just felt a little dissappointed.

Unfortunately the service we received while eating in the restaurant was not the greatest, our waitress seemed more interested in standing at the bar chatting with a college. We had to walk to the waitress to ask for our bill as she was otherwise occupied. While paying by card we were asked how much gratuity we would like to add to the bill! In this instance we didn't add anything as the service was poor, additionally I've never been asked like that for a tip before.

We meet at this restaurant quite regularly, for working business lunches, and the service is always efficient and the food excellent. It has a good ambience, although it can be rather noisy when full.

Good menu, great service, great starters but very mediocre Sunday roasts- overcooked meats, sloppy veg. Pizzas looked good though.

It is just the wine that upsets me. I usually have a large glass of white but for that price I expect a bottle. Otherwise- great. Everyone very helpful and to my elderly mother. That is why we are regular visitors!
