Menu was descriptive of what to expect and we were pleased with the recommendations made by the wait staff. Happy hour (or 3) was a good warm up! Next to the resort swimming pool with limited view of the lagoon.

We showed up to Aqua on a Monday night, without a booking in a group of 9, they were very accommodating and nothing was a problem. The service we received was very friendly and our meals were received in a timeframe that I would consider to be fair given the unexpected booking and the time we arrived. The food was... More

The food here is absolutely amazing however this was let down by the service. Only one waitress on for most of the time we were there and not sure if she has worked in the industry before or if she had just come off the street to fill in. It took 5 minutes to be seated without so much as... More

We visited Aqua on a Saturday - the sign said it was open. We bowled up around noon, it was totally shut up. So we went to the beach and came back around 2.45pm. The cafe this time was opened up, but just staff in the kitchen. A helpful woman (seemed to be friends with the kitchen staff) said that... More

We dined here on our last night in Raro. We both had the seafood rissoto which was delicious! The rice was perfectly al dente, the sauce was delicious and the seafood was perfectly cooked. Service was very friendly! This was the best meal we had while in Raro. Too bad we only found it on our last night.

My wife and I would stop by here during their happy hour specials where they had a different drink two for one each day. It was always delicious and a pretty good deal. Service was always friendly and speedy, they even picked fresh flowers to put in our drinks and that made the experience so much cooler. The tables are... More

Friendly staff, good service and delicious food. You have to try their Ika Mata! Restaurant overlooks resort swimming pool and is sheltered from beach winds.

Went for lunch. Nice atmosphere overlooking pool. Only a handful of guests as it was quite season. Husbands beef burger was raw inside so was sent back. Was cooked properly the second time but a little off putting when blood drips out of your patty. Didn't go back.
