The restaurant has a very decent location as you have a nice view on Dublin. Especially the sea food was very good. The staff is friendly and quick.

A day trip to Howth is worth the thirty minute train ride from Dublin just to eat here. The food is top notch and the restaurant is spectacular with 360 degree views of the ocean. This is a more expensive restaurant...perfect for a special occasion...More

We had a birthday lunch here with old friends. Everything was excellent. The food was delicious and well presented. The ‘birthday boy’ got a nice little dessert complete with candle too. The location was superb and the wait staff more than competent. A great celebration.

Lovely setting for an evening meal. Great service. Seafood offerings and vegetable plates were spot on. Reasonable wine list. Late afternoon and evening meals have a great western exposure view. Uncomplicated location with little evening traffic. I would come again. Cheers

Aqua Restaurant offers stunning views over the water at Howth Sound, delicious dining and attentive but unobtrusive service. If you visit once, you will want to return again and again. We have our own kitchen garden & lobster pots sponsored in local waters to deliver our commitment where possible to Irish food. To sum it up 'Seriously good food in a room with a view'
