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.
We attended entertaining clients and there was a large number of us. The service was great as was the food and the timing of everything. Will be visiting again in future and would recommended to others.
Very nice food and friendly service.
Was a lovely early mother's day treat. Staff treated kids amazingly. Food was delicious and we had thoroughly perfect day
I was on the hunt for a venue for an informal business dinner nearby our office in MK and Aqua came recommended by a couple of work colleagues. We had around 16 people joining for dinner and the team at Aqua offered us exclusive use of a semi-private mezzanine dining area on the ground floor. It was perfect. I didn't join for dinner (despite organising it!), so I can't comment on the food and service on the night, but colleagues who did attend commented that it was an enjoyable night. What I can comment on was how friendly the team were in the lead up. I popped over a couple of times with questions and requests and they couldn't have been more helpful. They were happy for me to decide on the table layout and to pop over to put name placecards out. I can't remember the names of all the team members I spoke with, but Dimitar, Ben and Richard were super-accommodating. Thanks to everyone @ Aqua!
Great food, service epic

Excellent meal, great value.
Great food and service. Although the prices are still a bit expensive.
Excellent food, very friendly service, and a very pleasant atmosphere
Absolutely amazing, service was brilliant, so friendly and helpful! Brilliant meal and would 1000% come back!
Originally booked the table for 10 online. Changed it a week before to 12 over the phone. On the day two guests couldn’t make it called to remove two places and u hadn’t even added them on. 3 ppl ordered steak, the girl who bought them out didn’t know which was rump which was sirloin or which was rare etc. When we asked she said “my bad I don’t know” stood there with an attitude expecting us to just take them. We were then asked to cut into them to have a look. Eventually no one could tell so they said they will get us 3 new steaks and chips (as original chips came out and we ordered polenta). You then returned with the steaks however u had given us 2 of the same! As still had cut marks in! U had just re heated it in the pan. Absolutely disgusting especially as u told us they would be new. We didn’t pay for two of the three steaks. But god what a shambles. Our main table waiter was very apologetic bless him, but still was a very disappointing service for a big meal for 10 people.
Some courses are better than others (from the set menu). The previous visit was way better as we made different choices from the same menu and it was fantastic. Unfortunately, this time the food really let me down. It’s a shame because the service is fab and we had a lovely time.
It's nice to go out and have healthy options that are so tasty you would choose them even if you weren't watching what you are eating! Service welcoming and friendly
good service and friendly staff
I have visited Aqua many times now but never for Sunday lunch. I invited friends from Buckingham to join my wife and I. I was very impressed with the quality of the food and the exceptional service we received from our waitress who had a lovely sense of humour.
Aqua at The Hub is lovely; light, airy & well designed building, the staff are attentive & the food is delicious. The Sunday lunch menu is very good value for money for such quality food.
First time we have visited the restaurant and enjoyed great food and service.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with a chirpy welcome, served drinks at the bar by a pleasant bartender. We had attentive service from the waiter, who added light hearted friendly banter to our already enjoyable evening. The whole experience was outstanding and I will be recommending Aqua to all my friends and family if they are ever in Milton Keynes. Thank you so much.
We had a great time at Aqua - the food was delicious, service fantastic and the decor of the site is fab. We were a group of friends who hadn't seen each other for a while and we weren't rushed at all. Love it!
Can't see why the wine glasses were removed after we ordered a pre-mal drink. They returned when we ordered red wine to accompany our main. Waitress was overstretched. Had to explain our order to her. She only bought one glass of wine when we had ordered two. Gave us the bill before we had ordered out dessert, despite telling her to wait a while before brining the menu.
Service was very efficient with 2 very friendly and helpful waiters. The food was excellent and very reasonable prices, great range of choices on the menu.
new menu is nowhere near as exciting or tasty as the old one. We miss the number 1.2... pizzas and lamb ragu
A great option in Milton Keynes.
