“Sunset location with excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We ate at an outside table at sunset. Brilliant cocktails (Duck Diva a favourite) and adventurous food. We shared a selection of sushi to start - it was fabulous! Very good mains (Scallops and risotto; grilled swordfish; huge lamb shank and cous cous) and a delicious chocolate torte with almond ice cream.

Good wine list and attentive staff.

We had a fantastic last evening in the Outer Banks at this restaurant. The combination of location (for spectacular sunset) and great food made for a wonderful evening.

“Food was great but ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

This could be a really good restaurant, but they have crammed so many tables so close together that the noise level was past excessive even with no children in the house. We were in a party of 8 next to a party of 10 who was next to a party of 12. We knew service might be slow so we ordered wine before allowing our waitress to tell us the nightly specials. Good thing because it still took more than 12 minutes to bring one of the two bottles we ordered.

There were some locals nearby that steered us to some really good dishes. The fish tacos and the OBX sushi which is made with soft shell crab were outstanding.

My recommendation is to give Aqua a try... on a weeknight in the off season.

“Nice facial treatmen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

I had an express facial and facial cupping which is new to me. The cupping really tightened up my jaw line and throat. Love it, want to find someone doing it in PA!

“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We made a reservation for Sunday night and found out that they were not serving Sushi. We changed it until Tuesday and upon arriving were told no Sushi as the roller would not be there. That was fine and we stayed for the regular menu. The soup and salads were very good. The bread was fresh and hot out of the oven. A majority of our table ordered crab cakes and they were average at best. Bland and not prime quality meat. For the price, more should be expected.

Service was attentive and prompt. Outstanding place to watch the sunset if you really want to pay for it.

“Best facial ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

I've had many facials before, but never as good as those I've had at Aqua. This place is fantastic, totally relaxing, and they use top-notch products (Eminence). I've been here a number of years running and these folks never disappoint. You're missing out if you go anywhere else while you're on vacation here! I had Jessica this trip and she worked wonders, though they have other great aestheticians, too.
