After a very indifferent reception and 15 minute wait because our table wasn't ready we were remarkably surprised at how good the rest of the evening went. Waiting staff were excellent, food was excellent especially the fish sharing place and great value.

So many wonderful restaurants to choose from in Bristol, but we decided on Aqua, Whiteladies Rd & were not disappointed. Great food from a tempting menu, superb service & the loveliest staff - especially Sam who looked after us brilliantly with the perfect combination of attentiveness & charm! The birthday girl was even surprised (& rendered speechless, which never happens..)... More

Booking on a Friday and Saturday night is essential as this place gets booked up and for very good reason. The food is homemade, fresh and delicious. I really recommend the Lamb or Pork Cheeks as mouthwatering options. The service was attentive and lovely. The restaurant also has a great atmosphere. I went for a birthday meal and the waiter...
