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.
Very Friendly service. Food great quality and served promptly
A great evening for my birthday. Lovely food, made all the more special by our two fantastic waiters, Richard and Dimitar.
Fantastic service from our FAB waiter - thanks!
I discovered the Sunday roast at Aqua a few weeks ago and have now introduced my entire family to it! It's delicious and like a home cooked roast. We have had the same waiter twice who was both attentive and funny and made our trip even better. Well worth a visit.
We came to your restaurant for the vegan menu as 2 of the party are vegan. Despite the fact that the website still shows the vegan menu, it is no longer availed. Now there are just a few vegan options on the menu. This is surprising as many restaurants are now introducing vegan menus. We will not be coming again.
After reading the vegan menu on your website I was to find only 5 vegan options (inc starters) when I visited the restaurant - this was from the main menu, no vegan menu was available. Both the starter and main course I had were very bland and didn't really taste of anything. Previous visits to Aqua MK (pre-vegan) were great and the food was tasty, but this was a very lack lustre attempt at providing vegan options.
Amazing service, fantastic waiter and delicious food. My new favourite restaurant!
The food was fantastic so was the atmosphere of the restaurant , with the kindest of servers and stuff . Clean and well decorated area , definitely worth some kind of reward for the services provides .
First time in this restaurant and I can say it was really a pleasure to eat in such a nice place. Service was great. Food was excellent and the whole experience was just 10/10. Would happily eat here again without 2nd thought.
The food was amazing, best I have experienced in a long time. Such good value for money! My 2 friends also agreed! Lovely waiter too, all round great experience.
Sat waiting for a table for over an hour, ignored, went elsewhere.
would like to see more options on the lunchtime menu ( it's fairly limited )
Our waiter was brilliant. Someone was quite late getting to the restaurant but the staff handled it brilliantly and still got the main made in time for his arrival. Will be definitely visiting again!
We come for Sunday lunch most weeks and the staff are always extremely accommodating, friendly, helpful and efficient.
The chap that served us was very nice friendly and welcoming. I am happy with our meal overall, although my wife had the chicken which was very dry and needed something extra from a sauce perspective. She is not keen to return but I am ! What a dilemma ! thanks Rohit
Me and my husband celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Aqua Milton Keynes and I had to say that the waiter who served us was brilliant, he made us feel like we were on holiday and treat us like we were his special guests for that night even if he had other tables to serve. His name is Dimitri and that restaurant is full of life when he serves you. Feedback to the management, Dimitri deserves either a promotion or a pay raise, he is doing a great job. From a very happy customer because of Dimtri.
Our favourite restaurant.
Visited for Sunday Dinner. Food was great, service was friendly and efficient.
The waiter we had was brilliant! Kept us entertained & made us feel very welcome.
Food was bland for all three of us. Staff made comments about my friend being “stood up” multiple times as she arrived half an hour before us and then commented that me and my other friend were late. My friend who was early felt so uncomfortable she had to leave the bar area and come back later. Food took a long time to come out which is understandable as it was a weekend but no apology offered. Staff generally really abrupt, came over and asked “ladies what are we doing?” while we were sorting out our cash as well as other sharp and snappy comments. Not happy overall.
Great writer was looked after so well
Never had a bad meal in Aqua. Service usually very good too. Use it a lot for lunchtime meetings given the fantastic value of the set lunch, and with the family, typically for the Sunday lunch, which is one of the best anywhere.
Thank you for helping make our leaving event with a party of 9 a very pleasant and successful occasion. The food and service were particularly good.
