The beach side restaurant at Aqua represents something entirely different from all other restaurants that I have frequented either in Nicaragua or elsewhere. The beach side bar has waves lapping right up to the wooden platform and a few tables place you on top of the waves with a spectacular view of the bay. A rare and wonderful experience, especially at sun set. My friends and I enjoyed a very pleasant meal with genuinely friendly service. The Beef salad was a real hit, excellent organic salad greens with plenty of tender Nicaraguan beef. Another favourite of our group was the Green Thai Curry with fresh local fish swimming in freshly coconut cream. Ambience was excellent, food great, setting incredible. On the whole for overall experience this restaurant is certainly my favourite in Nicaragua.
