Incredible cochinillo

Agua is a reaaly authentic spanish restaurant where you can eat different dishes, but their speciallity is cochinillo, so if you like meat do not gestitate to ask for it. The service is awsome and the price is in accordance with the quality.

I was invited to Agua by my Chinese partner. Unfortunately it was not easy to find the restaurant because it is at the 4. floor. When we arrived we felled very welcome. The interior design was nice but not luxury - simply Spanish. We ordered the daily menu. The offered selection was great. The taste of the food was great... More

I came back to Agua after a one year hiatus (moved out of China). Well it's nice to see that some things do not change. As always excellent ham, tapas, best suckling pig, great choice of wine. And very good service in a very comfortable atmosphere. What else do you need?

Went there yesterday with my friend. What can I say? Amazing food: nice tapas (only one porcini carpaccio was worth coming there), fresh and very nice pickled and homemade olives, but seafood platter was spectacular : lobster , tiger shrimps and scallops were perfect cooked and served with nice sauces! Good selection of wines for reasonable prices! Nice and attentive... More

My wife and I have come both on our own and I groups and we love this authentic Spanish restaurant. The wines are fantastic and reasonably priced. They have a Sunday brunch with great prices that includes a generous selection of tapas. We will return in the future for more of the excellent meat dishes. We never ordered the lobster... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here. The Tapas was all excellent quality and the main course (suckling pig) was fantastic! We saw others order the rib eye steaks (from Australian imported beef) and they looked amazing! The service was excellent and the Spanish chef (not someone who had spent a week in Spain taking cooking classes but... More

Had dinner with friends, sat outside on a nice evening. Had a selection of starters and shared some mains. Outstanding suckling pig, gambas, mushrooms, wagyu beef etc. portions were decent for tapas servings, service was professional. Saw the chef a few times but he did not attempt to stop by to see how things were.

This is an interesting place and I would really like to give it 5 stars but unfortunately my dining experience was not so great. Here is why: 1. First of all it is not good value-for-money for the Beijing standards. If you are in Beijing and you can spend more than 50 USD/person, there are hundreds of places where you... More
