Description: Aqua Restaurant offers stunning views over the water at Howth Sound, delicious dining and attentive but unobtrusive service. If you visit once, you will want to return again and again. We have our own kitchen garden & lobster pots sponsored in local waters to deliver our commitment where possible to Irish food. To sum it up 'Seriously good food in a room with a view'

If you are looking for a special place to eat then you cannot beat Aqua. The setting over the sea looking our to Ireland's Eye is unique and the food delicious. Charlie and his team are very attentive and make every night great. The food is lovely with service to match!

We went here last April with my boyfriend and his sister. Prices are a bit higher than average, but food is great, and service is top notch. I ordered lobster and crabclaws.

However the main advantage of Aqua is amazing view from wherever you sit - two walls are made of glass, and it's facing the Irish Sea, so if you go there in the evening and the weather allows - the view of the sun going into the water is breathtaking.

We have visited Aqua many times and have never been disappointed. The food is very tasty and is presented very well. Service is friendly and the views are spectacular. Highly recommended.

We have made a few return visits to Aqua recently and have been very pleasantly surprised. Both occasions were most enjoyable and the atmosphere wonderful. It's no nice to have a drink in the cosy bar beforehand. The service, food and view are really second to none and the pricing, while not cheap, is certainly very acceptable. The first visit was made all the more special by their inhouse fiddler and the second by their saxophononist, superb on both occasions. Well done Aqua, you have made the return to your former greatness, keep it up!

Food was superb. Disappointed by staff. No interaction. No warmth. Left restaurant lacking in personality. View from restaurant and quality of fish was outstanding. Would love to give 5 stars but staff let it down. Love love loved the food. Licked my plate clean! Apologies for mixed review but needs attention
