Location and contact

Aqua is a casual setting for relaxed dining with friends and family. Each morning, the restaurant begins with an imaginative buffet breakfast served from a live interactive show kitchen. During lunchtime Aqua prepares a selection of dishes including Aqua's delicious pizza and pastas as well as Mediterranean dishes. Come sunset, Aqua continues on a distinctly International path with an extensive menu and interactive show kitchen. For outdoor lovers, al fresco dining can also be enjoyed on the waterfront terrace. Every Friday, the restaurant offers a lively artisan brunch complete with Rosebuds brunch for the little ones.
