After a long maze to get there it was well worth it. Great atmosphere. The food enticing. They had oysters on the half shell. And being from Boston I had to try. They were comparable The menue has a lot to offer and their wine selection is great.

Food was great and the Ricotta - Chocolate cake was even better! Glo Bar is right next to the restaurant and the music and crowd create a great vibe!

At the first step, I am amaze with the buffet selection untill I found the sushi station. First seen I am doubt about it, how good they can make the sushi. And then I realised, the sushi station is a PLUS to doing friday brunch in this restaurant - fresh and tasty.!! I fact, They let you to order the full portion of sushi - that's what I like. I gave a big shout on it.

We had a work group dinner at the Aqua restaurant, and I couldn't stop admiring the beautiful decor and charming environment. The meal selection was excellent. Starting off with Arancini, an Italian delight, followed with baby Lettuces, baked fresh cheese, to grilled sea bass casserole. The Island waters provided a picturesque background and soothing relief from the stress of the long day. Generally, the place deserve a repeat visit. wonderful.

We had a family brunch at the Rosewood Hotel's Aqua Restaurant on 1st January. The food was absolutely top class!
Fresh oysters from Galway, exquisite Foie Gras poëlé, refined Sushi, Wagyu roast,
Baked Salmon in a salt crust, and a whole variety of international dishes: compliments to the chef.
There was a separate room for children with their own staff and there also the food was good quality; the kids wore their own chef's jacket and toque.
The "French Bubbly" was actually Veuve Cliquot Champagne but why was this not advertised on the menu?
The only shadow was the lack of experience of the staff for such an occasion; this can surely be improved with time.

Thank you for the Top Class Comment, we normally don’t advertise the brands of our products as we believe our guests trust our high quality selection. Our staff improves daily, so please do come back to experience our Friday brunch or our BBQ Thursday dinner outside.

Warm regards,
Luigi Romaniello
