I've been coming to Aqua a couple of times a year for a long while now and never fail to book a table every time I visit Hong Kong. The views are spectacular, the food amazing and the service attentive and efficient. A choice of Italian or Japanese dishes with plenty of options in both menus means that there is... More

I do recommend this place even only for the view over Hong Kong Island. Please ask for a table by the window and you can experience the light show on HK Island. The food is good but not excellent. Quite expensive as well.
