Tapas • Based on the traditional Spanish idea, our small, snack size plates of food, meant to be passed around, appetizer style. Tapas items are able to be enjoyed in a just a few bites and are perfect for exploring new flavors.
Small Plates • Larger than tapas and designed to be shared at the table, Aqua’s small plates enable diners to experience different kinds of flavors without feeling overfull.
Big Plates • The size of a typical entree, and the perfect size for one — not that they can’t be shared as well!
