OK, nothing special considering having to travel a fair distance. Perhaps a different vibe in the evening, but lunchtime I felt was all about in and out. Don't get me wrong, food was good, service mixed, views stunning. If city centre based, better options available...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'
