We dined here on our first night at the Sea Temple. I have to admit it was over priced but then that is what you would expect of fine dining. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxed and unpretentious which made up for it all. The service we received was very good. Would highly recommend.

If you're staying at the Pullman, definitely a lovely experience to wander around and enjoy Aqua Restaurant. The service is exceptional (couldn't fault it on any occasion) and the food is lovely - albeit a very limited menu. Not somewhere I would travel to just for the dining experience if I was staying in town but definitely worthwhile if you're... More

I dont at all mind paying good money for good food, but this was the opposite of that. I ordered the venaison, expecting a delicious juicy tender meal and instead this was replaced by an old donkey, My wife expecting a 5 star medium rare eye fillet melt in your mouth premium cut was delivered an overcooked well done version...

My partner and i celebrated a birthday last weekend in North Queensland. Whilst we stayed at the Pullman we dinned on numerous occasions at Aqua. The pleasing part of this was that the menu is well furnished, and dishes at deliciously cooked. Cocktails can also be purchased with my favorite being the Tolblerone, a creamy unctuous chocolate based cocktail with... More

Well we decided to eat here rather than in town as it was torrential rain and as breakfast and lunch was good we reckoned it would be ok... and it was but just ok nothing outstanding apart from the service and location. Food was good but not what I expected from 5 star hotel

After reading the menu upon check-in at the resort we knew that we were going to dine at Aqua that night! Unfortunately the food didn't live up to our expectations. The scallops entree was lovely but the prawn entree lacked flavour and the prawns were over cooked. The tempura coral trout entree needed a sauce and the main dish of... More

Great selection of Sousvide meat, which is really tender when cooked. Unfortunately, theirs was like leather and chewy. Not sure how this can happen.

This Restaurant is located in the Sea temple resort by the poolside, which provides an attractive and relaxed setting if you are lucky enough to get table outside. However, most tables are located inside, which is sparsely decorated and very noisy as a result. The menu is limited and are priced at about $20 for an entree and $40 for... More

Located at the Pullman Resort, the Aqua restaurant is simple in decor albeit being by the poolside, which brings most of its ambiance. The menu is quite simple, and the server, who is both sweet and knowledgeable, cannot compensate for the lacks of the Aqua restaurant. The pros: 1) They were open on January 1, which is a holiday.
