A lovely restaurant in the harbour area. The staff are so lively and professional. The menu choice is varied and the food when it arrived was delicious. I wish I could eat here more often.

Description
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'
