I've had business lunches here and also the pleasure of photographing two weddings held at the Delta hotel this summer where AquaTerra catered each. I am blown away every single time. Food is amazing, staff are friendly, and the waterfront view is unbeatable!

I chose to breakfast here and walked in at 7am Saturday. The Aqua eggs Benedict was very good. But the place itself was dark and stuffy and it was extraordinarily difficult to get my feet under the table. The bench seat offered a superb view...More

In the Limestone City, I usually prefer the charming historical buildings that house various kinds of restaurants; but AquaTerra is truly a little gem. The name, perhaps a tad pretentious for a building with such a mundane entry, is a small revelation of the ability...More

The scene from our table was just lovely that day, at noon, in October. The marina, the Wolfe Island ferry docking, historical sites in the background. It could have been a painting. The waiter was pleasant and attentive. Food was just satisfactory but, you did...More

this is a higher end restaurant but the service is excellent and so is the ambience. If you are looking for a nice night out this is the place to go in Kingston.

We do offer a corkage fee of $20.00 per bottle for wines. They must have the official band of a winery. They cannot be a brew your own. If you are making a reservation please advise that you are planning on bringing in wine.
