After my previous poor review, me and a friend decided to give this place another go. We booked and informed them that we have a taste card, seated straight away. I asked if the Taste card off was 2-4-1 or 50% off. They said it was 2-4-1 but doesn't include starters, as you will probably see from my reviews I... More

Been here once before and went again today. Starters were very tasty, we had the duck with hoisin sauce which is not very Mediterranean, the salad and the scallops which were a bit on the small side, but makes sense due to the cost of them. Then for mains we all enjoyed them, duck confit, sea food pasta and kleftiko... More

Lively venue, decent food, good service. Had steak for my main, I've had much better but paid more for it.

The brother owners are wonderful in so far as presenting an authentic Mediterranean restaurant in Croydon. Salmon was perhaps the best I have tasted (lunchtime), The staff were courteous and exemplified good customer service. The ambiance of the place is highly appealing as were the many choices on the menu. Overall a superb experience!

Had a lovely birthday lunch with family on Easter Bank Holiday Monday. Atmosphere was lovely. Food was excellent couldn't fault it. Food came quick without delay. The only criticism was the waitress. English was not her 1st language and got our extra order wrong. 3 times we requested extra rice with our main meal but she came with chips instead.... More

Went here for my nieces birthday. Menu is diverse and suited all manner of tastes. Staff are great and the restaurant itself has a lovely atmosphere. I went for sautéed prawns followed by the rib eye steak. While my niece enjoyed a spaghetti bolognese which she wolfed down. Will definitely be going back. Enjoy x

We wanted to try somewhere new for a Friday meal, and we were pleasantly surprised to stumble across this hidden gem. Situated a little further down South End than we normally venture. Good atmosphere, pleasant staff and really great Mediterranean menu that reminded us of our Greek island holidays.

Awesome steak meal from this bar. It's got okay decor quite spacious. The service is friendly but a bit rough around the edges at times. My wife ordered a lamb dish which came out a bit burnt and had to be returned. There was a very hearty duck spring roll starter. Quite filling. There was a king prawn starter was... More

Aqua Mediterranean Meze Bar and Grill is the brainchild of two highly experienced chefs, Dasos Charalambous and Dario Nardo. Both have trained and worked in some of London's top hotels and seized the chance to open their own restaurant when the right premises came up in South End. Aqua Brasserie Croydon They liked the look of the contemporary-styled eaterie at 33-35 South End and with a few tweaks here and there to lend just a little more sophistication, opened their brasserie. "Our aim is to offer people a place where they can enjoy quality food, at reasonable prices in a place where they can sit and chill," said Dasos. And I have to say the food really is first class. It's nothing too fancy - just simple, quality food cooked to perfection.
