I’ve eaten in aqua a few times but not recently until the other night. The food has always been okay and quite pleasant. However our experience on Sunday evening was exceptional. All of the food was amazing. The staff were attentive, helpful and smiling (which was infectious). It’s always nice to see people that enjoy their jobs and made us feel so comfortable. We had three courses which were all very filling. I honestly thought I was finished after my starter. I don’t know how I finished the steak and still had room to share the sharing platter of deserts. Everything was eaten, which is unlike me. I’m happy to offer the 5star rating in this feedback form and would recommend aqua (Portishead) to anyone. The only criticism was that the service charge was included on our bill. I was preparing to tip a much greater amount but didn’t get the chance as the card machine was handed to me without the option.

Arrived at 1pm for lunch. Stayed until 10pm. Couldn’t fault the food. Delicious. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and kept a very high standard of service throughout our stay.

First time at Aqua. Food was good, location and in particular the service was great. The 20% off your food on Tuesdays in Sept (on your website), was not applied to the bill. However, the service was so good I am more than happy to pay the extra £10. Highly recommend.

Our waitress was excellent. Food average, and expensive. Had to send back first steak as well over cooked. Wasn’t offered any form of reimbursement/drink on the house which I found surprising.

We had a fabulous meal at Aqua. I had booked the wrong day when amending the time but the manager was able to find a table. Service was excellent and the food delicious. Highly recommended! Thank you.

This was our second visit in as many weeks, and we were just as impressed. Nice greeting, attentive service (Ray really looked after us - again), excellent food and portion sizes, and good atmosphere. We'll visit again; recommended.

It was great to dine outside at Aqua Portishead and enjoy the stunning location. - the atmosphere was great! We were looked after perfectly by Ben and his team. Thanks for a fab afternoon - we will be back very soon. Life almost felt normal for a couple of hours 😍.

I've dropped one * on the overall review despite 5* throughout the individual items and that's due to the limited range of choice on the menu. What they do is done well, the staff are excellent and tables etc clean, the welcome is great - I'd go more often if there was a wider choice though.

Decided to sit outside as it was a nice day. As soon as food arrived myself and wife were bombarded by wasps and flies. Spent most our time hitting them off our food. I could also see we weren't the only ppl getting attack. The food and service was excellent, I would recommend sitting indoors.

Atmosphere is difficult one to rate currently. I was certainly busier in the past, but that’s not the NEW NORM so I can’t complain. Certainly had a limited choice when booking a table. It’s busy, but because of social distancing lacks the busy/packed feeling it used to have. I include this in the atmosphere rating rating only... I know it’s not your fault... but it’s my own personal reflection currently. Food was great as always - has to be said being a committed carnivore the veggi starters were a revelation and currently being copied for home use! Drinks tend to be a little pricey but nothing outrageous. Service is always good, however id like to see one waiter or waitress during my entire order. Instead I get The team doing it for us. Whilst that works, it’s not as intimate as a 1:1 service... perhaps?
