Great restaurant and amazing food. The Autumn menu is a preview and we are excited to go back there and try more flavors. Spanish cuisine at its best!

    We had a lovely evening only ruined by the torrential rain. Great food. Good value on the book a table deal. Will definitely go back. The short rib and suckling pig were delicious

    Beautifully presented food - tiny portions! - great service and swish location. Don't be fooled by the starters and mains headings on the set menu, it's all tapas-sized.

    The service received was first class from the moment we arrived at reception on the 2nd floor to joining the restaurant. Our hostess who had had joined the restaurant from Ibiza was extremely courteous and helpful and took us to our table promptly even though we had arrived a little bit early for our reservation. My friend and I were given a refreshing pink rum cocktail to start with. Our waitress Sofia, was very knowledgeable on Spanish cuisine and in addition to our 3 course menu options recommended we taste the Special starter a delightful chorizo flavoured tomato dish which was served to us with the Chef's compliments. The croquettes we ordered as part of our standard starter option was served in mussel shells and our main the beef short ribs were both prepared to a high standard and absolutely delicious. The desert was a fragrantly prepared sweet rice pudding again an absolute treat. After our meal we proceeded to the bar, ordered some drinks and went outside to sample the picturesque terrace. Overall I cannot recommend the staff and food highly enough and will definitely be going back there again. My friend visiting from the Home Counties was very impressed with my choice and we both had a fantastic evening at Aqua Nueva.

    The food was very nice and delivered very speedily. The wine-list is way over-priced and the noise level in the restaurant drove us out as it was hard to have a conversation without shouting. The staff in the back bar were not friendly or engaging. We won't be returning as a result.

  • (**** by from Bishop's Stortford

    Although it was a lovely restaurant I was disappointed with the amount of food that was given to us! I booked a deal of £29 for three courses with a cocktail - very small portions - it was like having three starter portions and not at all filling! I was very disappointed and will not return I'm afraid

    Great atmosphere, really friendly waiter, excellent service.
    The bar has a lovely bar, didnt get to go out to the rooftop bar, but it seemed to be very popular.

    We took advantage of the 3 course menu & cocktail deal and it was really good value for money. Every dish was delicious, although I was a bit disappointed by the dessert offering. Only 2 options and the one we had was overpowered by rose...

    Other than that, the food and ambience was great.
