Came for lunch here recently. The view from our table by the window was stunning, overlooking the sea and Ireland's Eye. Staff were excellent-very accommodating and efficient. Food was nice. Good selection on the set lunch menu and we all enjoyed our meal.

Some of my family were in Dublin for 6 Nations Rugby. Booked a table for 8 in Aqua and it surpassed all expectations. Excellent menu & ultra efficient staff who catered for every need. Sharing starters were split into 2 plates, a very nice touch....More

Tried pheasant here for the first time and it was beautiful . Really enjoyed the setting despite not having a window view. The place could have been a little warmer but overall highly recommend.

Beautiful atmosphere with the waves rolling in underneath the restaurant windows. Excellent food, well presented. Professional staff and the service was first class. Try the Albarino white from Pontavedra in Gallicia.

Has the best on water tower view. Luxury setting. But food is overpriced compared to its quality and taste! Supposedly it’s a specialized sea food, but no much of sea food selections... rather a standard seafood menu

We had a large family lunch here on a Sunday to celebrate my father's birthday. The service from start to finish was super. We were seated right at the end of the restaurant overlooking the harbour / bay out to Irelands Eye. The best part....More

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'
