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

I totally enjoyed the experience at this place.
If you are looking for a complete experience, this place has it all, it's the view, the food and the service, they've got it all correct.
Planning to comeback some time soon.

Aqua is a great option for celebrations because their great view it's like no other.
I had some Japanese rolls and some wagyu beef and enjoyed some wine from their great collection.
It wasn't disappointing. The food was better than I expected and their staff were so friendly and efficient.
I would totally recommend this place. It's all I've been looking for, their sommelier is well trained recommended some of the best wine.

Aqua is no doubt the best place in town, delicious food amazing view like no other definitely.
If you are visiting Hong Kong this place is a must, nothing compares to this.
I was fortunate to find a table here and dine in company, I wasn't disappointed.
The people who pictured this location to make it a Restaurant knew exactly what they were doing. No failure!

I reserved a window table a week in advanced for my wife’s birthday and last night In Hong Kong. The hostess told me the seats weren’t guaranteed upon arrival and there was a 900hkd minimum as if I wasn’t there to spend the money. I was already aware of all of this when I reserved the seats and spent 4000hkd without the window seats to see the light show. That was very disappointing. Other than that.. the food was excellent. Just don’t trust you’ll get the seating you want for your special occasion even if booked in advanced,

Will keep this one short. As a repeat visitor to Aqua, I was quite frankly, sadly disappointed with the level of service on this most recent occasion which was actually a first date. Whilst the food was up to the usual high standards I have come to expect, the fact that the service was woeful (could not spot any waiters on any occasion we needed one) culminating in my need to have to ask the hostess at the front desk whether they actually wanted my money / could I have the bill / did any waiters actually work there ?!....I won't be back, nor will I sully my reputation by recommending it to anyone I know. I've actually heard this place is shutting up shop. Not soon enough. May as well - it was pretty empty and a window table was easy to get. 1 star is generous. H

We really enjoyed the dinner, with my husband and mother-in-law. As it was her birthday and the first visit to Asia, I was kind of slightly disappointed that the restaurant didn't mark this in any way (although mentioned in the reservation). Otherwise, it was really nice!

I been here before, it was awesome. Now it is not as good. Maybe something changed during the protesting for volume of customers. The food was not as good, and the resturant was empty on Saturday night. Just not as good as before.

The food and ambience of Aqua were great as we were seated by the windows with the view of the harbour. The service staff were very friendly but on multiple occasions, we had to ask a few times for our drinks before it finally came (and we were seated by the bar...!) Three different staff came to our table to ask what water we would prefer and after the third time, we finally got our tap water served. The same goes for our drinks during the meal. Cocktails were way too small in size so we ended up having to order again and again and our first 'shot' of sake was served with room temperature so we asked for a bottle with ice eventually. Everything was great apart from the drinks.

The view is stunning and the food very good. Some of the waitstaff in the lounge and restaurant need more training though. For the very high prices, the service needs to be stepped up to a better level.

Great food, fantastic service, wonderful view. Only thing was music a little bit to loud (lounge music which probably would be better in a bar). Prices a little on the high side for the food and definitely overpriced for anything you drink. If they ask if you want some edamame while you're waiting it is not a nice offer it is ---sales (78 HKD), 6 oysters (788 HKD), Water (85 HKD) Sushi plate (888 HKD) Champagne on glass (298/338 HKD), Cheese 2 different (188 HKD) Dessert Platter (388 HKD and 2 glasses 20 year old Port (516 HKD) Total bill 4078 HKD for 2 pax, not eating too much and no wine drinking.

1. A male waiter clean up the desk but our main courses haven’t come yet and hurry us to make order of desert.
2. The beef quality is not good but the taste is excellent.

Aqua does not disappoint with its food and ambiance. Really enjoyed my fourth brunch experience and will absolutely come back. New menu is a great balance of Italian and Japanese, loved fresh burrata and quality ingredients throughout. Service was not at par with usual though. We had to ask for every drink twice as waiters would nod acknowledging and then it would take ages for that drink to appear making us think they forgot. Also felt like a lot more staff than before on the floor, so the reduced efficiency was puzzling.

It's been months ago to Aqua.
Menu changed a lot, and the wine list got more interesting wine on the list.
I was surprised by the service, they still remember my preference of food and drinks.
Once I sat down the water is already served according to my preference, then my server start to explain hows the new menu works and recommend few of the new item to me. She was more professional then my last visit.
The new tasting menu is very interesting experience and the wine paring is perfect.

Overall, this restaurant have never fell me once.

Been to aqua last night and just the our previous visit, we were very impressed. My wife loved the decor and I became fan of their service style. Very attentive and considerate. After dinner we popped up at the bar for some pictures but the staff offered us with a table which was very sweet . My wife was very impressed with the service and overall ambience and seeing her happy makes me happy so aqua ... Thank you once again ♥️

Never disappointing!! Always actually improving and offering new food options along with always better recognition and preferences tracking system!
I don’t even need a wine list anymore! They had my usual Gavi di Gavi ready at the table and my oysters arrived even before I opened the menu!!!

You guys keep on wowing me every time!!
See you very soon!

Service is below average, no warm welcome. I purposely wrote that it was to celebrate my birthday, even I was alone, no special attention, I did not expect to have freebies. But that can give a surprise to the guest. I spent quite a high average spending.

I was truly disappointed for my second visit within a month. One of your staff's unprofessional attitude has ruined the mood of our gathering. When compared with my previous visit in June, I was totally surprised by your serving staff's careless mistakes and her manner.

Had the Saturday Brunch and opt for free flow champagne at $688 pp. No need to choose from the menu and all items are included, it’s not a buffet but it’s more than enough for even the most hungry adult. We had cold cut (love it), cheeses, oyster (1 pp and good), sushi, sashimi (fresh but not the expensive types) , fry dumplings (not my favorite), cheese risotto w white truffle (full at this point and barely touched), lamb chop (juicy), prawn tempura (good), dessert plates (half are good). Ask for window seat and don’t forget sunglasses! Frankly the service was slow as in other reviews, I asked twice for espresso martini at 2:30pm but came nothing until we left at 3:20pm.

Nice brunch with an amazing view. Service was pretty good, and food simple but delicious.
Even if we booked only a few hours ago, my son received a special ice cream with a candle for his birthday.
The music was sometimes strange and unpleasant, but hopefully not too loud.
We had a great time.
