Visited with my parents and wife. Food an service was excellent and represented good value for money given the quality and location. Would highly recommend the mussels, monkfish and sticky toffee pudding whilst watching the sun set over the Irish Sea.

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'
