Brilliant from start to finish. Nice drink in the bar before moving through to our table. We were in a table in the middle of the restaurant but then our request to be at a table beside the window was carried out when possible. Oysters...and squid delicious, filet of beef and lobsters incredible. Great attentive service, would go back for sure!More

We had lunch on Thursday 17 Sept 2020. Absolutely fantastic meal! The seafood chowder for starter was so tasty served with crusty bread. I had trout for main course which was the catch of the day followed by creme brûlée for dessert. The entire meal...was excellent. The food, service, cleanliness and views from the restaurant were all amazing. Our waiter Norbert was very professional and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit it again.More

Aqua is one of the best reastaurants I found in Howth! I went there with friends for lunch: we had mussles, chowder, catch of the day (very fresh) with very tasty vegetables and they had a few dessert options as well. Good balance quality/price. The...service was excellent. Our waiter, Zsolt, was very professional, nice and friendly. We had a great time!More

I brought my mother out for her birthday to a few places In Dublin north during the day and decided to finish off with an evening meal in Howth. I had looked online and this place had great reviews and the best spot in Howth...at the end of the pier overlooking the Bay Area. I was politely received by Tomas as walked in (without a booking). He was very friendly and helpful and managed to rearrange the seating to make space for a table for two. The almost 360 degree view of the sunset over the sea was just beautiful and equalled only by the food, which was exquisite, and the level of service which was beyond reproach. Norbert was waiting our table. He was very polite, friendly, attentive and professional throughout the meal. He made sure to have a candle and cake and a Happy Birthday sing song (along with the rest of the staff) and made sure we got the perfect photograph as a memory to go with the lovely evening. The best food, location, service and evening in a long long time. Cheers Norbert, Great job. :-)More

We went as a family to celebrate a birthday. Started the day with a crusie from Howth to Dun Laoighre. Came back to Howth on the Dart ready to eat....and we weren't disapointed!!! Staff were warm, welcoming and consumately professional. The views over Dublin Bay...were breathtaking, and as for the food....it lived up, in every repsect, to the many accolades and awards that are on display throughout. Congrtulations to Charlie and the staff on such high standards of hospitality, service and cuisine!!! A definite must for all lovers of food and the sea!!More

We have been recommended by our friends to try this hidden gem in Howth and it was absolutely worth it. Food was outstanding and the service from our waiter Zsoth was even better! Looking forward for the next visit👍
