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'

Pretty poor really.

• Fish was dry smelt very strong and did not appear fresh
• Chips undercooked
• Staff forgot gluten free bread
• Brusque unfocused service, and a bit "jarring'

Dear John D
Your review is completely surprising to read
No idea when you visited us but can categorically assure you our seafood is served fresh and no other way, at a loss to understand your comments.

4 of us dined here yesterday evening . 3 decided on the fab value of the early bird menu. 2 people can have a 3 course meal plus coffee and a bottle of wine for €79. Yes €79, unbelievable in Dublin. The views from this 2nd floor restaurant from behind complete glass walls was brilliant. The food was top drawer, staff excellent, really nothing negative to mention, we hope to revisit in the future

We visited here for a family meal - the sea view was unexpectedly stunning, the atmosphere lovely, service excellent & the rib eye steak quite literally the best I've had in years & cooked to perfection. I can't wait to go back.

Really good food, a man playing soft music (saxo), no noise, excellent views (the sea) and really good price for the quality of the food. If you go with the menu 2 main courses (25 euros), 3 (30 euros) it's even cheap!

We were greeted warmly and promptly seated by the window for lunch. The day was partly cloudy with intermittent appearances by the sun. The view from the window was gorgeous. I had the seafood chowder - a creamy concoction chock full of fresh seafood and vegetables. My husband had a salad starter and the flaky cod entree. The panda cotta and coffee were the perfect end to this wonderful meal.
