Description: MISSION In keeping with the spirit of Japanese and Italian culture and style, Armani Aqua/ Armani Prive will provide our guests, employees and owners with a product of exemplary quality and attentive, friendly service in an energetic and contemporary environment. Location: Located in the heart of Central within the prestigious Chater House building adjacent to The Landmark Building Concept: Contemporary Japanese and Italian Cuisine Armani Aqua will bring to Hong Kong a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese and Italian style of informal eating and drinking with the attention to detail and quality ingredients. Cuisine: Japanese and Italian contemporary dishes are "authentic but not traditional" with an emphasis on quality ingredients and simple presentation. Armani Aqua Concept More than any cuisine in the world, Japanese and Italian food is a complete and aesthetic experience... a delight for the eyes, the nose and the palate. Both featured cuisine is based upon the desire to enhance rather than alter the essential quality of fresh seasonal ingredients. It has been debate that both cuisines have borrowed every element for their cultures and merely modified it. The enormous influences from the Asian mainland, especially from China and Korea, and later from Europe and America dominate the culinary history of Japan and Italy. Armani Aqua is a modern Japanese and Italian restaurant, lounge and night club with alfresco dining that takes its inspiration from all over the world, an informal restaurant and bar. In recent years, haute cuisine has evolved to a more sophisticated level and the atmosphere is stylish and vibrant. However the essential difference between the style and a formal restaurant is that there is no prescribed etiquette for ordering the menu, with no differentiation between "starters" and "main course". Location The venue comprises 14,000 square feet over 2 floors in a state of the art new development at the Chater House Building in the heart of Central, which would benefit not only surrounding residential but also commercial clientele from prestigious shops and offices in the area. Armani Aqua is located adjacent to the Landmark Mandarin Oriental. Design Hong Kong based Aqua Restaurant Group co-owner Mr. David Yeo lead the design team featuring Japanese design with Western influences is renowned in Asia.

There is an average outside bar here but it is overpriced and pretentious. Even on a quiet evening it took a long time to get served. Try Sevva across the road in Princes Building for fantastic views on the terrace

the location is gorgeous, but the moment I walked in I could feel the eyes of the gossiping waiters in my back, they we're not really paying attention to the other customers. They didn't smile and looked like they were held there against their will. The drinks were fantastic, although I had to wait 20 minutes for it. If you... More

On a Monday evening a VERY light crowd. ..mixture of tourists and suits. Service was as minimal as could be. .... couldn't be bothered. ... they didn't know the wines posted by the glass, and hardly wanted to know. Prices are average at 128HKD/glass BUT light pours by the bartender. A MAJOR PASS!

This is a good location in the mid escalator region and a welcome cool respite. There is comfortable seating and the room is pleasant. Service is really really bad even though there were few customers. The bartenders chatted among themselves and the waitresses stared sadly into space. All this for $700HK. You could give this a miss.

Great relaxing place to chill, better than Sevva in my opinion. Staff is amazing (a thousand times better than Sevva). Sushi was surprisingly delicious too. I had a cold once whilst getting drinks and the bartender served up some hot cinnamon lemonade complimentary. Very heartening and a place I would return every time I'm in Hong Kong.

My main concern when I head into a bar is the service that I'll be receiving. I'm that guy that asks for recommendations on cocktails and food, in order to find a new favourite place every couple of months and who better to ask then someone who works at the venue. A friend recommended me Armani Prive a couple months... More

Armani Prive has an atmosphere that works perfectly for drinks after work. Working long hours on a Monday, the first day of the week, it can get pretty stressful for me.

It has a nice location, decor and view. Huge terrace where u can chill for a long time. However, never order their food. It's pricey and nothing special. We ordered pizza there and it took forever and it's cold when arrive. Plus it lacks flavor.

Just had afternoon drinks at Armani Prive, sitting in the outdoor area. The location is great and the menu is better than average in terms of variety.
