Had lunch here to celebrate a family members birthday. Staff were very obliging and friendly, food was reasonably priced, tasty and fresh. Side portions could be slighted bigger but only a small point. Will definitely be back for another meal

A day trip to Howth is worth the thirty minute train ride from Dublin just to eat here. The food is top notch and the restaurant is spectacular with 360 degree views of the ocean. This is a more expensive restaurant...perfect for a special occasion...More

We had lunch at Aqua. The view was incredible. While the fish was very fresh, everything was really bland. Someone should tell the chef that there's nothing wrong with a little seasoning. Additionally, my husband and I each got the two course lunch. The waitress...More
