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. It's... More

Had pork belly tapas style- very dry. Needed a sauce. Inconsistency in wine amounts poured by waiting staff. One bottle finished off into my husbands glass- much less than my glass. He felt like he was getting the dregs.

I dined with 5 others recently at Aqua. Antony (F&B Manager) kicked off our lovely evening with some great cocktail recommendations. We enjoyed oysters, coral trout, beek tataki, Tiger prawns and salt and pepper squid. A very reasonable bill, great service and a tranquil setting - just what we needed!
