Food and service were most disappointing - it was a Bank Holiday Monday but this should not have effected quality. Booked this restaurant on the basis of positive reviews. Lovely setting with great views but this did not compensate for poor service and tastleless food.

A fantastic Seafood Restaurant with wonderful views and good quality food, excellent waiting Staff and a pleasant ambiance. A bustling place which is not over priced for a change.

Absolutely stunning location. Breath taking location. Wish I could have said the same about the food though. Fish was not a fresh as expected - and why serve tuna and sward fish at a restaurant on the Irish sea? Oysters lovely, mussles as well. Local...More

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'
