“Date night”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

We had date night at Aquagrill last night. The atmosphere is lovely, warm and cosy with a touch of elegance. The menu is interesting and the items we chose were delicious, beautifully presented and tasty.
The wine list is excellent too, a note though: even if I order only 1/2 a bottle of wine I would like to have the bottle brought to the table just as if ordered a whole bottle.
Service was good, the waitress is to be commended for taking care of 5 tables all by herself. What we didn't like is that her English is hard to understand. She rattled off the specials, starting each one with "had" (ex. "had soup of the day..."), I guess she meant "we have"...Long pauses during which she glanced at the ceiling trying to remember what she had to say...in the meantime I'm trying to smile and nod encouragingly and unable to understand much. Needless to say we had none of the specials as we couldn't be sure what they really were.
It would be much better to do a small computer printout with the daily specials and pin it to the menu.
All together a very nice experience though and we would go back.

“Always fresh.”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

The grilled calamari is amazing, and they will make homemade chicken nuggets served with pomme frites for the kids if need.

Aqua is one of those places that deserves the word 'Special'. The service is always excellent, menu choices are extensive and everything is full of flavour and prepared with care. They seem to have a chef that is able to cross the borders from Chinese to Thai and do both well.

“Not worth the time or the money!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

Went there this summer with some friends. Thought it would be nice to enjoy a quiet place for a change. The food was horrible and overpriced and when we asked for some changes to one of our meals they were not pleased.

“brings out the gourmet in you”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

What ever the occasion, couple, family, quiet time to read a book, this is the place to be.
the staff always greet you with a smile and are always in touch you during your meal. Stephen Ho, the owner or his chef, makes you feel at home by stopping at the table for a wee chat. Their menu is a selection of mediterranean food: appetizers, entrees and desserts, prepared to please. Great wine selection. We try to go back as often as possible for lunch or dinner. Make a reservation, so the staff can plan for your arrival. see you there.
