The beauty of Hong Kong’s skyline is simply indisputable. Perched on the top floor of One Peking, this Penthouse restaurant allows diners indulge in the harbour view galore through its iconic floor-to-ceiling windows.

At Aqua, diners can enjoy unconventional Italian and Japanese flair from its two innovative menus, Aqua Roma and Aqua Tokyo

Dress Code: Smart casual attire would be much appreciated and admired

Not worth for what they charge quality of food vs the price. No.

We got the table at around 6:40 and ordered food in 10 minutes. But the food was delivered at 7:30. We rushed finishing the food withinn 20 mins and when ordering the dessert at around , we were asked to leave. If you want the customers to leave in 1.5 hrs, make sure your food is delivered in a timely manner. This was indeed the worst birthday dinner ever. Definitely not recommending for any special night.

For all the hype, we where underwhelmed to say the least.
Food was very average, service not great at all. We did a wine pairing and each time our food courses came out we had to wait ages for the wine to come as well.
Nice view but that’s as about it.

The whole dining exp in my view was terrible since one of the dishes from the signature menu was not hot enough and one of the ingredients was cold while I tasted. Besides, the waiter who serves our table was probably too busy since our glass of water had been empty for over 10min. But my extra A la carte order beef tartare was tasted nice.

Overall the whole signature menu isn't worth it in my opinion, but the harbour view was really nice to dine with.

We expected better - Overpriced for quality of food and service. Undoubtedly great view but not worth the price. A lot of investment in the design , beautiful interiors but not sure there was much consideration on acoustics or lighting. Which is equally important. To be frank, we didn’t enjoy the experience, and were eager to leave and move on to another venue for dessert and drinks.

The Pizza and pasta choices needs to be larger. It’s too limited.
Appreciate the adherence to traditional Italian toppings but more traditional topping choices would make the experience richer. We wanted pasta but there wasn’t anything available that we liked.

The service was unprofessional and extremely poor. We have not had such a bad experience in any Aqua group restaurants and this left us so disappointed and angry, specially it was a birthday celebration! It was not welcoming and no one say 'Thank you', the service was simply rude! We will never go back and will not recommend anyone to go!

Very disappointed with the food quality and size of the meal. Many more options around TST with the same view and much better food. Way too overrated and definitely not worth. Even though it was a birthday booking, not even a small cake as a surprise.

I ordered set dinner but the fillet is not done quite well.
The manager, I suppose, the tall woman, is really helpful and try best to take photo, even use her phone for background flash light.

Everything is going fine, untill the moment of paying the bill. At first, they mentioned about that, due to the internet problem, my credit card cannot be used at that moment, they politely asked is there any other card can be provided. After i said no, they try the card once more. Unfortunately, the problem remains, and then they started to ask "is the card yours?". Then i am kinda triggered. Idk is this my problem or am i misunderstood sth. I dont asking this question is proper though. Even later, when "internet problem" is gone and the payment is smmothly procrssrd, not an apology was made. Ok fine, thanks aqua, i am a little potato that deserve no apologies lol.

Requested for windows seat during reservation but got table next to corridor instead. Got asked to shift to bar area for dessert and charged extra for still water when the initial bottle from dinner is still unfinished. Terrible.

The overall experience of the restaurant was good. That was not our issue. We felt quite taken aback when we asked the 1st waiter if my wife can have some sparkling water in a champagne flute glass, because she is pregnant and still wanted to feel like she is drinking some bubbles in a nice glass (btw. this was also the evening of our 11th anniversary. You can check your notes along with my booking)... He must of not heard us properly because another waiter or senior staff member approached us and said how can he help. We then told him the same thing. Upon his return he brought us a bottle of sparkling water along with a pitiful excuse of a champagne flute. We looked around us and saw the other people drinking from lovely and proper champagne flutes. It was quite insulting and from what we gather our request was not worth serving my pregnant wife on our anniversary with a decent champagne flute, since it was not enough $$$$ spent to get a proper glass.

Great views of the harbour with friendly staff and great ambiance.
A dark interior ensures privacy and diverts attention to the view of the harbour and HK island.

Been brunching at Aqua over past 6 years, special occasions or holidays usually. Always enjoy it although perhaps there could be a separate area for those with young families.
Also, prefer a dessert platter rather than the buffet style room.

Unreachable number, waiter’s attitude was off-putting. Table way too small for their designed set menu. Booking was for window seat, was allocated to a very small seating instead.

Nice venue...great view. Service a little cold, and not enough time taken to explain wine and food. Aqua is a premium priced restaurant, and guests should be made to feel VERY special. Overall, food was good, but not exceptional. In particular, the risotto was quite bland, and no pepper or salt was offered. My girlfriend was served a dessert with a happy birthday message, but it wasn't really served with much warmth. Again, overall, need to make guests feel valued and special when paying a premium price.

I was there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Haven't been back for over 10 years. Front desk service was poor. Girl wasn't very polite. Servers are good (Indian guy) was nice. Food choices were a bit exotic. I was asking for kids menu but there was none. I ordered a California roll and were late for 30 minutes after chasing the managers 5 times. The lead manager finally came to apologize and offer to give us free dessert but by then I already had my ice-cream so I didn't want to be greedy and just simply declined. Overall, $2000 spent but didn't get much out of it. Maybe just go there for a drink and that's about it. First date night might be ok. But family celebration would not be a good idea. Too dark.

My friend Amy and I enjoyed the recent dining experience at the Aqua on September 4. We especially would like to thank your staff “Shougten” (my apology for not spelling the name right) who had been attentive for taking action upon our different requests. The specially reserved birthday cake for my friend Amy is absolutely delicious😋 Overall, we enjoyed the foods, wines and staff services at the Aqua.
