Amazing location with great service

It was great from the moment we entered into the restaurant till the very end. The service was great and the food amazing. But I think the best thing about this restaurant is the view and the warm atmosphere. It is only 20 min drive from Dublin and you are already far from the city noise and... read more

Nice restaurant but pictures on line not giving back the real look inside. Opened kitchen and noise from it. However delicious food but expensive for two people we have paid 140€ no alcohol.

We had a mid-week lunch here a few days ago, luckily with a break in the recent foul weather, so we were able to take advantage of the superb panoramic sea views through the large windows of this lovely restaurant perched above the harbour of the fishing village of Howth (an easy and cheap 20-minute ride from central Dublin on...

Saturday night is very busy in most restaurants and Aqua is no exception. We were lucky to be seated at the floor to ceiling windows and the panoramic views over the harbour were perfectly set off with the dying rays of a setting sun. An idyllic setting but, for me, it was somewhat marred by the incessant noise as happy... More

We dined here with my family for my mothers birthday a few weeks ago, and I have to say the food was tasty, the live piano player and singer was really pleasant, and our server Collie was such a sweetheart and made our night so comfortable. Will definitely return!

Went to lunch at Aqua. Beautiful view of the water. Excellent seafood. Had a set menu for lunch that all 4 of us ordered. Fish and Chips were excellent! Best I have ever had.

Very good location at the end of the walk way in Howth. They have a fire where you can warm yourself first while choosing from the menu. The restaurant has great views of the sea. The food is well presented and flavoursome. Would recommend.

Howth is a great place to visit, preferably with blue sky, and this restaurant gives you the perfect setting for a nice seafood lunch. Don't miss the oysters. Good service too.
