Think modern Italian cuisine at this stylish restaurant…

Established in Bristol in 1998, Aqua is proud to be the neighbourhood favourite for authentic food and friendly service.

For your main course, choose from a selection of slow-cooked meats and seafood, grilled aged steaks, handmade pasta and sourdough pizzas. Passionate in supporting local farmers and growers, Aqua uses fresh and seasonal ingredients from the West Country.

With its beautifully designed interior, well-stocked bar and heated outdoor terrace, this is an ideal dining destination for all occasions. Don’t miss out!

So my Dad is the fussiest man alive but will never admit it, I picked Aqua as we hadn’t been there before & after checking the menu out first I figured it was ‘Dad safe’ & it really didn’t disappoint at all.
I had the fillet steak, Dad had the half chicken & said ‘it’s the best chicken I’ve had all day’ (typical Dad joke) he even spoke about returning which is the highest compliment he can give!
Loved the atmosphere & will definitely be returning soon!

Had a fantastic experience at Aqua. Lovely location for a spot of lunch. I had mussels to start some of the best I have ever had the white wine and garlic sauce was delicious. Steak for main which was cooked to perfection. The sticky toffee pudding was to die for!!!!

4 of us went to Aqua for a birthday meal. We ordered a pizza which was lovely and tasty and perfectly cooked, a burger with delicious potato wedges, the cod and dauphinois potatoes which was really delicious and the breaded chicken with spaghetti which was the only dish that was a little disappointing. The filling of the chicken had all leaked out and dried up and the portion of spaghetti was very small and a little bland but was well cooked and fresh.
Service received was very friendly and there was no issue at all in getting our bill with the FT discount applied.
The restaurant itself is in a really nice setting, with lovely décor and a great atmosphere even though I went on a Monday.
Will definitely return.

Lovely place, friendly waitress and good food. Scallops were delicious and wished we’d been served more as quite small. Wish were were also given some bread to start with, always helps up start a meal well.

Nice place with high quality food, the waiting staff were friendly, however they seemed not very knowledgeable about the First Table website as when they presented the bill there was no discount on it, when we pointed this out, the staff had no idea, however after asking the manager they quickly amended the bill. (When we first arrived, we clearly notified them that we made a reservation through first table.) Although they changed the bill, it still caused us some embarrassment as people nearby were watching.
Overall the venue and staff were lovely.
