About Agua Restaurant - Apex
Up to the mark in ever way.
An absolutely fantastic restaurant from the service, the staff and the food. Myself and my friends have been going to this restaurant for a couple of years now on and off and I have to say I cannot fault any of the above. The staff are very professional and so friendly but not overbearing nothing is too much trouble. The food is very reasonable and I am always surprised at how lovely it tastes and how well presented it is. The price is exceptional well worth a visit.
Stylish restaurant on Edinburgh Grassmarket
Part of the Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel, Agua Restaurant is on the Grassmarket in Edinburgh’s city centre. Sitting in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle, the restaurant is a bright, contemporary space with striking yellow banquette seating and wall mounted candle lights.
Global dishes made with local produce
Scotland’s natural larder is at the heart of Agua Restaurant and the kitchen uses local produce to create Scottish dishes as well as choices which have a more international flavour. In addition to a full a la carte there is a fixed price menu. The menus change regularly but typical starters might be the country pork terrine; the king prawn and smoked salmon cocktail or the cashew and pistachio nut slice, served with cherry tomato salsa and a garlic and herb dip.
Main courses might feature a pizza, Scottish sirloin steak with all the trimmings or fish in a batter made with local Caley 80/- beer. More international flavours can be found in dishes such as the lamb shoulder with aromatic spices and cous cous or the salad made with figs, pecan nuts, spinach and poppy seeds.
