“Must do once.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Went here for a significant birthday. The environment and outlook are exceptional. The style of the restaurant somewhere between the Shard and a night club... Trendy, noisy, bustling, a microcosm of all that is ostentatious in Hong Kong, with a price tag to match, as if price was an indicator of quality as well as means. Try the Taleggio Scallop, the cod mousse and fillet with some Greco di Tufo. We enjoyed the occasion and this special one-off place.

“Food with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The food was superb, the staff were efficient and certainly not stuffy which made the pre dinner drinks and the meal very relaxing but the view is superb.
Book a 7.30 sitting and request a window seat and you will be rewarded by the light show over the harbour at 8pm.

“The Wow factor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

After being wowed with the most amazing view of Hong Kong harbour and light show, enjoyed a brilliant dinner chosen from the mix of Italian and Japanese dishes, the night was made even better by the attentive, but not overpowering, staff and especially Steve, the assistant manager. He guided us through the menu and wine list and kept us entertained to make an unforgettable night, crowned by the fact that Chelsea beat United whilst we were there - he kept us informed of the score and also presented us with a congratulatory dessert, which happened to be their signature dish that was to die for. Will certainly recommend to anyone visiting Hong Kong and will revisit ourselves in the future.

“Wonderful night - again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I returned to Aqua in a recent return trip to Hong Kong and had a fantastic night from the moment the beautiful staff greeted us at the front desk! The staff are so welcoming and remember us from previous visits, making you feel at home and yet very special. Olimpio the new manager was very attentive and able to recommend a wine to satisfy out varying tastes. The food we chose was from both the Japanese and Italian menu and was fresh and satisfying. The chef made us a special lobster sushi roll that was so amazing we had to order another serve. All of us demolished our mains, thoroughly enjoying the strip loin, risotto and pasta dishes. The wonderful waiter and bar man made sure we were treated very well- we were so pleased to return. The view as always was magnificent- the best in Hong Kong. I always recommend Aqua to friends and family.
