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

You don’t prepare to provide every guest a set of menu. On request, the captain still saying it is your practice to provide one set per table. Come on, we asked for them, just go to bring them , excuse could only make it worse just like our feeling. The restaurant is so dark and the characters on the menu are relative small, we could not share reading them.
The pizza , doesn’t matter wage pizza we ordered, it was crispy, and no tomato base .

Overall, it is disappointing, it is not the same Aqua we have been coming since day 1.

Nice reception team, they all helpful and super nice with us.
My friend is 1st time visiting HK and he is crazy on the night views. Happy that we can have a meal here with the harbor.

Service is good, suggest us the signatures dish- '' Stone grilled Beef'', Lovely ''strawberry tartar''.

We ended up in the quiet room and arrived 30 min early so there was no table. We were asked to spend money to get a table immediately. The restaurant was packed and staff so busy so there not allot of attention from staff. It took 15 min to order a drink

Very little food if you choose the set menu. The waiters don’t really understand or explain the menu properly. Customer service is very basic, not what you would expect from a fine dining experience. The manager was borderline rude. The windows are filthy so it takes away from the beautiful view.

Unfortunately underwhelming! Food was solid but nothing spectacular. Service was very chaotic and sub par... bread/oil arrived with the first appetizer, both of which arrived before the wine bottle, only to be followed by the second course before we had a chance to finish the first. Timing totally off, not helped by random waiters each time rather than dedicated ones.

If it wasn’t for the special views and modern design, this wouldn’t fare too well. But the views are special!!! Location A+

Food is good and as we ordered oysters in extra that made us unable to finish the original portion.
However it is too noisy there especially in the main hall.

This is my second time to have the weekend brunch at Aqua. I had visit Aqua many times before for dinner and drink. Highly recommended for any occasion. The weekend brunch is highly recommend for family W/ kids, great value!!! The best part is that I feel that i am having the buffet but i don’t need to get up and serve myself!😬😉

The food wasn't bad, but could be better, considering the price. The pasta was not good, the other plates were good or ok. Ambiance is good, the view is amazing, but first we were seated at a table without view (I have to thank the staff that moved us later in the night).

Enjoyed the whole experience. Aqua has been one of our favourite places for years.
We were hosting dinner for a newly wed couple.
Loved the service (served by wonderful Kumari), the food, ambience and the view.
Would love to be back soon.

On previous visits, we used to be warmly welcomed to the table, explained the menu and actively engaged by the front of house staff, this did not happen on my most recent visit along with the following;
-The dress code which is published widely was not enforced. There were people in shorts, tracksuits, beanies and slippers dining on a Saturday afternoon, which damages the atmosphere.
-The menu is not as inclusive as it used to be. The cheaper free flow option for brunch only includes the cheaper Champagne, and it is already an expensive lunch.
-The food is not as fine as it used to be. Strawberries on the dessert platter were old, the cuts of meat were fatty and the antipasto buffet was lean.
-Glassware delivered to the table was dirty and had to be returned
-We were not offered tea or coffee at the conclusion of dessert
-The bill was placed on the table before it was requested and the server hovered until it was taken care of, which made me very uncomfortable.
-This is an approx HKD$1000 per head restaurant which I used to be prepared to pay, but now appears to no longer have the competitive edge nor value for money it used to.

The customer service was terrible. I made a reservation through their website at 11:30 am, and they changed their open time to 12 after that and failed to notify me. I ended up arriving 30 minutes before they even opened the door!

I’ve had better in Aqua. That days valentines brunch was a huge disappointment. Starter came all together. We hardly hv space to put and time to eat n gyoza got cold. Ordered sashimi that never arrived and we canceled the order eventually. The fondue was not very appetizing n we had to share the fondue pot with our friends over the divider. Cheese corner, baguette was for displayed only, complete joke!! Definitely not romantic nor memorable. It was very hot too. Was sweating. Restaurant was crowded and waitress was too busy serving. Food was way better before. Did u change your chef?

The first table offered was ridiculous, in direct sun without shades like the other tables. It was at least 35degrees Celsius.

The plates and table were dirty. Items took long to arrive. We had to ask multiple times for items, while other tables which came after got served first. Overall terrible experience, never again!

Lunch dining. Window blinds obscure the sight across the harbour. There are materials available which block out the strong afternoon sun yet allow clear window views.
Poor food presentation. Bland taste. Quality of beef and sushi are very poor. Unclean wine glasses. Inadequate dispensing of soap in washroom.
Only the wine was acceptable.
