“Outstanding again”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Been a few times now to d'aqua. Each time the food is superb. Scallops followed by roast beef - no room for pud- the staff are pleasant and helpful making it a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend it.

“Anniversary dinner”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This was my second visit to D'Aqua but my first with family. It didn't disappoint, as once again the food and atmosphere were excellent. The staff are just the right mixture of professionalism and friendliness and the attention to detail, including the complimentary bruschetta and the sublime cherry sorbet made it an evening to remember. It was my husband's first visit, but definitely won't be his last.

“Amazing food, lovely service”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This was my second visit to this restaurant, and the food again was outstanding (scallops, fillet steak, rhubarb). The difference this time was the service. Totally felt like a valued customer throughout. I was advised by my friend that one of the waitresses was the wife of the chef, and her attention to detail and warm, friendly service shone. The other waiting staff were also attentive without being over the top. A must visit.
