Service at Acqua was the highlight of my trip to Phuket. In general in the city service is awful but here service is just up to the standard of the finest restaurants in the big cities and luxury hotels. The attention to detail, anticipation tobour needs and the extensive knowledge of the manager Mateo and his great staff made of... More

I've been to Thailand over 25 times and usually avoid western style restaurants. Acqua is the exception. It's one of my 10 favorite restaurants (anywhere in the world) and it's always a must when I'm in Phuket. The owner and executive chef, Alessandro Frau is extremely talented and his attention to the little details helps set Acqua apart. The pan... More

In this restaurant apparently did not seem to be in Thailand, the smells were typical cuisine of the Mediterranean Sea. Excellent service and quick staff, dishes served with great decorations, and the whole environment gave me a beautiful evening with my wife. The chef, someone called Alex was truly exceptional, we ate several fish dishes and a lobster. For wine... More

We went based on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. Decor is modern with a large open kitchen. Staff is attentive and smiling and always topping up glasses. Food has a modern twist and the fresh ingredients come through marvelously in all the dishes. Wine list is extensive and the sommelier is always there to help... More
