About Aqua Milton Keynes
Aqua has open kitchens in all of its restaurants to create that sense of theatre. All of our food is fresh and freshly prepared to create those wonderful Italian flavours day-in day-out. We like to use the best of produce so that our guests can experience the best of creations. We source all of our cured meats and Italian produce from Italy and use our local suppliers for all of our butchery, fish and veg requirements.
We like to produce menus that are unique and produce dishes that you would not necessarily cook at home. These are our point of difference items that we continually work on to produce flavours that excite the senses. Being Italian, we like to use a range of big bold flavours.
Aqua is a wonderful neighbourhood restaurant where you can pop in at any time. Our menus cater for every occasion, whatever your appetite. Pop in for a chat with friends over coffee, or enjoy some of our lighter bites. You are welcome to enjoy our relaxing and stylish interiors all day. We serve coffee and cake in the morning and food from 12pm, so whether you’re in a rush or want to indulge yourself, Aqua is the place to be.
Founded in Bristol in 1998, Aqua has grown and evolved over the years but remains a great independent, local Italian restaurant. It is proprietor Richard Smithson’s goal to deliver contemporary Anglo-Italian food to local neighbourhoods and encourage diners to pop in at any time to experience our tailored services and food. The success of Richard’s vision today is thanks to our team of talented chefs and charismatic managers. We have built our reputation on our guests’ satisfaction and strive to deliver and exceed their expectations every day. This has been our motto from day one.
Booking was simple. Food was excellent, as was the service. Cocktails were nice and price wise... you get what you pay for!
It was ok ... we were seated near toilets although many free tables ! The food was average if honest for the money
Waiter extremely helpful
Our waiter was fantastic so charming and very efficent the food was wonderful and it was a fantastic birthday meal and celebration but wasn’t too over the top my girlfriend and I loved it she especially said her tuna steak was fantastic
Our 2nd visit to Aqua MK. We were very well looked after. The quality of the food was very good especially the roast dinners and the child’s meal as well. Will definitely return.
Brunch was good value for money. Service was quite good however, slow with topping up prosecco
The service we received was some of the best we've received at any restaurant. Friendly, chatty, kind and attentive - every single member we interacted with was exceptional.
Excellent service from our waiter. Sorry I dont remember his name.
My favourite restaurant outside of London.
Excellent food and service
Our waiter was Christiano, very friendly, cheerful and helpful. The food was absolutely flawless, great choice, well presented and tasted delicious! The restaurant over all was welcoming and clean, with a relaxed and friendly vibe. Will definitely be back.
Excelllent waiter (Dimitar), made us feel welcome and was very attentive. Having staff with a smile goes a long way. We will be recommending to family and friends.
Our waiter, Chris, was really great. The food was lovely. It was a shame that I had mentioned in the booking that it was a birthday and this wasn't followed up by staff, and Chris admitted he hadn't seen the note. It was a nice evening though. Perhaps next time just check the booking to see if any special requests have been made. It would have made it feel more special. Thanks
Our waiter was fab, very attentive. I forget his name but he had a bead and glasses. Very good service
We always enjoy family meals at Aqua, the food and the service is excellent. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
Service excellent. Trashy pop music on sound system was a bit loud.
We went on a Sunday night and there was no atmosphere. Most of the restaurant was closed and there was only one waiter. They had none of the food we wanted to order which was a real shame. Very disappointed when we have had such nice meals in the past.
I advised the meal was for my wife’s birthday but nothing was mentioned or no little quirk to dessert as you get in other restaurants.
Great food and great service !!!
We were a table of 9 and we hadn't preordered though we had seen the menu beforehand. Our orders were taken in record time, when the food came it was piping hot and decadently delicious! The service was great, the food was great, I couldn't recommend Aqua Milton Keynes highly enough!
Outstanding service at a business lunch held at Aqua this week. Food was extremely good, fantastic quality and good portion sizes, the service from our waiter was fantastic. Highly recommended
Excellent friendly service
The restaurant service was absolutely outstanding! I celebrated my 20th birthday there and they made me feel special as well as welcomed! The food came quick and was nice! The staff were soo friendly and made this a very special for me! A big thankyou to the manager and his staff member that helped assist me throughout the evening! I would deffo recommend!
I use Aqua a lot - from a business perspective the fixed price lunch menu is perfect, and personal, the Sunday lunch can’t be beaten for both value and quality. Food is always excellent, service usually the right blend of professional and competent, whilst not being obtrusive.
Brilliant food, great value for money
