About Aqua Restaurant

Seriously good food in a room with a view sums up Aqua Restaurant. Overlooking Howth Sound on one side, the island of Ireland's Eye on another and the bustling Howth Harbour on the 3rd side. This first floor restaurant offers the best seat in Dublin. Seafood is a specialty being a coastal destination but there is lots to choose from on the varied menu to suit all tastes. Howth village is a 25 minute train ride from the City Centre or 30 minute drive. A breath of fresh air from the City, there is lots to see and do, stunning walks around Howth Head, a thriving market, museums and even a local road train to visit all of the highlights. A perfect afternoon retreat in Dublin.

102€ for early bird and 3 drinks expensive for what it was. Also I got a wine that was left open for days and was told it was corked. The wine looked a different colour and was awful.

Had to ask to order drinks towards the end of our meal. Our glasses had been empty since before our main course arrived. There was a very large group who were seated after us and wait staff were focused on them. We also twice had our waiter behave as of our 2yr old wasn't there... I know he's quiet and small but he still needs to eat! The food, on the other hand, was exceptional! Everyone enjoyed absolutely everything that they ate from start to finish. Sublime.

Grand I suppose if money is of no issue. Staff were polite and fish was decent. A pleasant setting but you'd get the same in Galway much cheaper. Howth in general is a bit of a rip-off due to its popularity and Dublin location. So, be warned.

First time at this restaurant, I have to say it was a wonderful experience. Myself and my wife really enjoyed it. Service was excellent, staff were very friendly and catered to every need. The food was excellent, I ate a lot and was full but I did not have that feeling of been bloated. The taste of the food was amazing. I will definitely be going back, will be telling my friends about Aqua.

The view is spectacular and the staff were attentive. My gripe is that our food was served far too quickly. We were seated at 6:30pm and we had both our starters and mains out by 6:50pm. My partner was still chewing her starter when the plates were cleared and the mains delivered. We were hoping to savor the evening but it was all very rushed. The food itself was quite good but not fantastic. My chowder was fine and the Swordfish was ok. My partners meal was better. The lobster salad was tasty but the Sea Bream was delicious.
