“excellent food and menu a fun read”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Menu was interesting reading and food was excellent eating.
Pasta ina balsamic cream spicy carrot filling was delicious , salad, tuna tartar all with great taste and a bit different. As usual with all "cool": restauarnt that want to come across as vibrant , it was way too noisy. The view is amazing but having been to Hong Kong over 100 times I have seen the view from every angle.
Service needs improvement- no bread was served until I noticed other tables had it and I had to ask even though waitstaff walked by often and it would have been most obvious that the bread basket wasnt there-

Thanks for taking the time in letting us know your thoughts. I'm delighted that the food was first class, however, some ups and downs with the service. As with all feedback we will do our best to act upon it and get better at what we try to do best, look after our guests.

“Amazing view but …”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

To explain the format, the Roma and Tokyo refers to the two different menus (Italian or Japanese, surprise, surprise) available in the restaurant. The Aqua Spirit is the name for the bar.

Rather disappointed in the food. My pea soup was cold and I had to send the 'Crispy Suckling Pig' back as it was fatty and more than half of it was rubbery rather than crispy. However, the restaurant managed to save itself from a two star review by quickly replacing the pig with slow cooked beef which was nice (but it would be quite hard to mess up after all) and best of all, by providing a complementary and exemplary selection of desserts without being asked. These comprised a perfect hot chocolate fondant, a delicious light and fluffy tiramisu, a creme brûlée and a superb mandarin sorbet. It's pretty expensive but that brings me back to the view which is, quite simply, breathtaking.

“Amazing night”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Aqua hong kong, what a great night!!! Views were amazing over Hong Kong harbour, food was great and service even better. Daryl was our waiter and he was brilliant, friendly and made us feel very welcome....even arranged a surprise dessert for us to celebrate our anniversary!! It was such a lovely touch to finish a wonderful evening. I would definitely make a return visit and suggest its worth a visit if you are ever in Hong Kong

“What a view”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

What a fantastic view while you are having your drink or dinner. Superb unobstructed view of Hong Kong skyline from the Kowloon side.
The food was excellent.We had the japanease option. Service a bit rushed. It is quite pricy, however definitely worth it at least once during a trip. Do not bother with the light show over the bay As it is nothing special.
