Aqua 43 was a welcome discovery from from the usual high street restaurant chains. Great service and food in clean comfortable surroundings. I was in a party of 4 and we all had the Fish and Chips. I can honestly say it was some of the nicest tasting fish and chips I've had in many years.

On our frequent visits to Broadstairs Aqua is now first choice for lunch.The welcome is friendly and service is attentive and helpful.Most importantly the food is extremely good value,well presented and certainly large enough portions.The pie with roast potatoes and fresh veg is worth a try,although my wife maintains that the cod & chips is favourite.

Excellent lunch and friendly welcome. Good value and was tempted by the range of traditional puds. Yummy.

We visited Aqua 43 today and we weren't disappointed. Inside is clean and very welcoming, we were welcomed by the waitress as soon as we entered and picked our seats. We both ordered fish and chips which was delicious! Mushy peas were an optional extra if you like them. Would definitely visit again and imagine it can be very busy... More

We were staying in Broadstairs and had really been looking forward to fish n chips. On reflection we should probably have chosen a traditional chippy but we liked the idea of eating in (bit cold in April to be eating al fresco!) 3 of us had cod and chips..the fish was lovely but we could all have done with a...

I had a deep-fried haddock fillet with salad. The batter was thin, tasty and crispy and the salad was enormous. Highly recommended.

We had a morning at the coast in Broadstairs and popped in for a spot of lunch with our two little ones. The restaurant was very quiet but we had an excellent lunch. Weather was warm but town very quiet. Children had sausage and chips and we had fish and chips and ham and leek homemade pie. All went down... More

Visited today and will not return. Our adult fish portion size was very poor and the chips weren't good at all. The only thing I will say was the batter tasted nice but that was it. Cheap mayo, ketchup etc... my kids had strawberry milkshakes, ones 8 and the other 11 and they were served in a child's very small... More
