Overall, very pleased with our lunch for 20 people. Aqua looked after us well and food was lovely. The lunch set menu is very good value. The only downside was that the chef forgot to put pine nuts in the salads! Will definitely return, thank you.

This the 2nd time we have been here and although this was a busy night we were received the same attentive service as on a quiet night, the food was good and served at the correct temperature. a special 'well done' to our waiter.
