“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place was recommended to us but I would not go back. We were waiting to be served. Both starters we shared between 4 were drowned with cilantro. 3 out 4 main courses were not good. One was so salty we sent it back. It's an expensive restaurant that is definitely not worth the money.

“Great food, iffy service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The food at Agua was fantastic and they have a gluten-free menu and gluten-free bread available on request. We went there twice because the food was so delicious.

Our waitress disappeared on our first visit and we finally had to ask someone else to bring our check, which was a little annoying. But the food made it worth a return visit. The risotto-style sweet potatoes were so good, I looked up a recipe for it when we got home.

“Always great!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our group dined here last year and the meal was just as good this time around, we love love love this restaurant. The Bar is great to have a sneaky cocktail prior to dinner with some very inventive creations and the service is top notch. A must visit!!!!

“Fantastic Seafood! Fantastic Brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

I feel Agua is one of the best restaurants on the island! Their Tuna Tare Tare is absolutely amazing. Presented and served over thinly sliced avocado. The best I have ever eaten! My husband had their Lobster Ravioli. Service was superb and staff friendly and fun loving.
We went back for Sunday Brunch Eggs benny made fresh and you could order any omelet you like. The Bubbles flowed and it was not inexpensive champagne. The Brunch had so much variety of sushi and gourmet cheese and all kinds of pastry. It is a must seafood experience on the island. For you wine lovers check out their extensive wine list.
