About
Aqua Restaurant offers stunning views over the water at Howth Sound, delicious dining and attentive but unobtrusive service. If you visit once, you will want to return again and again. We have our own kitchen garden & lobster pots sponsored in local waters to deliver our commitment where possible to Irish food. To sum it up 'Seriously good food in a room with a view'

Hot plate light being switched on and off a bit off putting. All other elements of the experience are excellent....service, menu, food, timeliness of courses etc. Topped with a magnificent bailey's cheesecake. Great value too. We'll be back!

It’s been quite a few years since I visited this restaurant and it was a little disappointing. One of our guests was vegetarian and with only one vegetarian option for a main course we were advised they didn’t have it on that evening. Little flexibility...More

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
