“Fabulous food and sensational view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

The Pastas are to die for. The steak and the presentation was fantastic, the service by the food waiters was excellent.
The staff at the reception desk are a bit snooty and look down their noses at you. The view is amazing, across to the island. If there are only two of you, you can ask for a table next to the window.

Thank you for the 5 stars rating and for your comment, even if I understand there is a bit of disappointment upon your arrival. I`m sure some "looks" from our reception team has been misinterpreted as we try our best to show and share our passion for the costumer care. Maybe next time if you wish to come back I can personally look after you when you come over, please contact me anytime on my email address: nicoletta.gherardi@aqua.com.hk I will be delighted to assist you!

“Good spot for city view, people watching!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Came here with my brother and sister for the view. Ended up getting the champagne and app special. Reasonably priced considering the venue. Managed to get a prime spot at the bar even on a Friday night. Good fun!

“great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

We went for lunch without a reservation and the management was very accommodating even though they were closing for lunch service. We had a fantastic brunch with unlimited champagne and the service was top notch. The view is stunning across the harbor to central. I would highly recommend if you are in Kowloon,

“An absolute must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I have been to Aqua every time I have been in Hong Kong without fail. My last review was written in 2013 where I still enjoyed myself but not so much the food. The Aqua team was kind enough to invite me back to the restaurant and we were very well looked after on the night.

The restaurant and bar were both buzzing when we arrived on a Wednesday evening. A table by the window was reserved for us with stunning view albeit the rain. The other half and I chose the set menu with abalone/tuna sashimi, sake clam, black cod with prawn tempura and salmon roe followed by chocolate fondant. The food was outstanding this time around and I was delighted to have returned to Aqua. My boyfriend proclaimed it was the best meal he's had in Hong Kong thus far and that's quite a statement considering the lovely meals we've had there.

Another plus is the level of music played - it's no longer at ear-drum busting level! Atmosphere was fantastic and we were able to have a conversation whilst still enjoying the vibe.

Needless to say, I shall definitely be returning to Aqua on my next trip to HK. I must also say it's refreshing when establishments take on constructive criticism and act upon it. Kudos to the Aqua team and thanks very much for a lovely evening! :D
