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'

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 or special lunch.

Dear Ellen050
Howth has indeed lots to offer any visitor, stunning cliff walks, a pretty village, the bustling harbour and of course many fine restaurants.

Thrilled you found us at the end of the West Pier, do visit us again soon

Very nice fish restaurant located at the end of the pier in Howth.
We went in the evening so we could not enjoy to views across the bay which during the day or summer evenings would be very picturesque
The food was amazing, I consider the restaurant to be one for special occasions.
It is a fish restaurant with locally sourced produced, unfortunately only one vegetarian option.
Service was very good with drinks including wine to suit all price ranges
I would go back which is recommendation enough
Photos below are show some of the dishes we ordered

We had lunch at Aqua. The view was incredible. While the fish was very fresh, everything was really bland. Someone should tell the chef that there's nothing wrong with a little seasoning. Additionally, my husband and I each got the two course lunch. The waitress told us about the special appetizer but never mentioned that there would be an 8.5 euro up charge for it. I would recommend Aqua for the view but I imagine there is better food in Howth.

Dear CLM554
We pride ourselves on excellent ingredients cooked simply, it obviously did not suit your personal taste but that is ok.
Thank you for the feedback and yes there are many fine restaurants in Howth to try
If you wish to visit us again, we have an excellent Early Bird offering of €79 for 2 to dine with a bottle of house wine to share
