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

Acqua is an absolute Gem in Phuket, a dining must! Alessandro & his team prepare & present stunningly delicious food! The Maine Lobster is an absolute must when dining at Acqua.

Booked online yesterday. Quick confirmation for an 8:30 reservation same night. Unfortunately upon arriving we were informed that half a dozen items on the menu were not available, mostly the fish dishes but that effectively nailed it for us as my wife wanted a fish dish. To say I was disappointed would an understatement. You don't expect to be handed... More

Don't order the muscles! Went in with a lot of high expectations after all the great reviews. And even though the wall of fame gave a comforting feeling for the food we were about to order, we ended up being immensely disappointed! Starters were good. Main course took too long and I ordered the ravioli with muscles which were too... More

My wife & I had our New Year's Eve dinner there and it was fantastic. Everything was delicious and it was wonderfully presented, the staff was very friendly and attentive. All in all it was a great experience and we would go back again :)

This was the worst meal we ate in Thailand. We ordered an array of starters and mains and every single dish was bad. The only saving grace was the burrata, for which they charged us 1500 baht! (Not as per the menu...). The drinks were also no good, I mean, how do you stuff up a Gin and Tonic? By... More

We have visited Phuket for 20 years each December and are delighted to have found this amazing restaurant just out of Patong. The Chef is undeniable talented and the flavours he brings to the table are incredible. We have tried many dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed. The steaks are tender and the pasta dishes are wonderful.... More

Fine dining at its best in phuket? Let iron chef alessendro whip up a host of Italian fusion dishes to satisfy. A great wine list and Excellent meats from grilled giant prawns, lamb chops and rib eye steak. I would go back again for the buffalo cheese and Parma ham appetiser alone. Excellent service and Reservation is easily done online.
