Ranked #6 of 43 Restaurants in Los Gigantes
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $17 - $44
Description: With just ten tables available for evening dining, AQUA is one of the most intimate and romantic restaurants in Tenerife. Its awe-inspiring views over the ocean and La Gomera completing the experience. This is a place to come for that special occasion — a date night, a birthday, an anniversary, or simply to celebrate life, love and food. AQUA is the brainchild of Tenerife’s most celebrated chef, Lucas Maes who owns and operates three restaurants on the island, each with its own distinctive style, underpinned by Lucas’s unique personality. Originally from Belgium, Lucas grew up in Tenerife, where he developed his passion for creating flavour combinations and visual styles in dishes made built around local ingredients. After 3 years’ study and 12 years working in Michelin star restaurants abroad, including Scholteshof restaurant in Belgium, Lucas returned to the Canary islands. In his restaurants he expresses his creativity, using the many exquisite fresh ingredients to be found in the mountains, fields, shores and ocean of the Canary islands. After an evening at AQUA you will understand why Lucas has won so much acclaim, including the Best Foreign Chef award in 2004.

We ate here on our last night and we have to say that this was an amazing experience. The views out to sea just added to the special occasion. The service provided by the waiters was first class and nothing was too much trouble.

The food itself was extremely well presented and very tasty. One tip- no need to order starters as you get a lovely selection of breads and dips and an aperitif before the main course arrives. We did order desserts and after our dessert came a complimentary taster cake. All the food was first class.

My wife ordered the Pampano which was a local fish and it was beautifully cooked and presented. I ordered the Atlantic Cod which was delicious and again brilliantly presented.

If you stay in Los Gigantes and the Royal Sun Resort you should definitely make sure you eat here.

We've just had the most wonderful evening at Aqua! It has everything you would want. Amazing food, attentive and very knowledgeable staff, a breathtaking view and all for a very reasonable price. We enjoyed the tasting menu with the pámpano being the real star of the show. Klemen really made our night so thank you very much for a wonderful evening!

Our experience at the Aqua was delightful to celebrate a special birthday. The staff were attentive from the start, even apologising for not being able to put our table on the balcony due to the high winds!

Our inside table still had commanding views of the Atlantic and tables are well spaced you don’t even notice other diners. We opted for the tasting menu, which was absolutely delicious. Every course explained by knowledgeable attentive staff.

From the speciality breads to the crayfish, tuna, veal, and culminating in a raspberry desert, the whole meal was a delight.

The portions on the taster are small, necessarily so because of the many courses. Just right for a sample of the talent of the chef.

Not too expensive either at 48€ pet person for the taster menu and the quality wines are good value too.

If you want a special, intimate celebration, Aqua will not disappoint.
