“Gorgeous seafood and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

We ate here twice during our stay, the second time was because the starter of tuna tartare had been so good we had to have it again. The seafood is fresh and flavoursome and good sized portions. Not huge. There's a really nice atmosphere inside. We found one waitress in particular to be absolutely lovely, she really exuded warmth and made us feel very welcome. The owner, or I assumed he owned it, is an Irish guy and there's little Irish touches throughout. I highly recommend this place as a great choice in Mancora.

“Best place to eat in Mancora”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

My friends and I are now back at Aqua for lunch for the 3rd day in a row! It is just so delicious we can't get enough. Tuna tartar so so so GOOD, along with everything else. If you are in Mancora eat here!
