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

waiters' service is non-profession, long face without joy to serve; pretend fine dine but not value to the charge; the rest manager must have a review seriously!!

got given a great room with a fantastic view however the menu had changed from the advertised one
with a pregnant lady and a vegetarian this left few options for some of us
the waiters 1st answer to every question was a resounding "NO" then they would talk to the manager and make changes begrudgingly
music from upstairs was very loud as the room was open to the bar above
Food was very good quality apart from the Gnocchi but we found the service and friendliness very poor
Its not a cheap restaurant and for that money the service really should match the food .. in this case it did not

We had table of 5 all take the $688 set dinner. The place is clearly under staff. Waited long for food, not serving our bottles of wine until asked, dessert on the set menu has very small portion, one small scoop of ice cream for 5 people to share, amazing. Waited 20min for the bill to come. It was full house on a Tuesday evening.

We enjoyed our family dinner at Aqua and the best part by far is the amazing view of the Hong Kong Harbour. Unfortunately, this is an expensive restaurant with a weirdly schizophrenic menu- pasta and sushi, not a combo I’d go for. You are left deciding which side of the menu to order from, and each side is not that extensive (usually a good thing). We ended up going for mostly Japanese and the oysters were delicious (but seemed to be missing the six types of roe as described). The soft shelled crab tempura was expertly done- and a large portion. The kimchi wagyu beef fried rice was also excellent, one of the tastiest items we ordered. So all in all, the food was tasty but the menu was limited and the prices high which reflect the view more than the quality of the restaurant itself. Now that we’ve been, we’ll probably not bother to go back, based mainly on the strange and limited menu. Service was good, though not exceptional.

Completely over-priced with absolutely no service. I had to wait a long time before a waiter could stop by and answer my request, the waitress was completely unfamiliar with the menu, another waitress bumped on me without realising, no introduction on the food served, poor table layout, noisy restaurant, food quality was lower than average too. The only thing good about my dining experience was the view of Victoria Harbour.

Restaurant opens at noon and only let customers go up at noon. Big queue outside elevator lobby just to get seated. Not ideal for a restaurant charging at this price level.

The view is fantastic and the food quite good. One main course we picked was not available and we had no advice on picking sides for the main course. The service level, in general, was not on par with the price level of the restaurant.

The golden ticket was a set menu not a tasting menu. The service should better describe the food prepared for the diner to best choose.
We should also not have to ask for wine, if it a wine pairing.
They sat us on a table with no overhead light- could not see my food.
Overall A for the view. The food was C-.
Not likely to go back.

Sashimi wasn't cold and as there were 2 of us, there was only 1 shrimp. Server came and replaced it but acted like it was our fault. Service was not good at all, was rushed to finish the courses. Was still on the tempura and the sauce was cleared away already when there was still plenty of space on the table. Had to repeatedly ask for water to be served after the glass was empty for at least 30-40mins. Food was above average not spectacular, would expect a lot more for that pricing. Would not visit in the near and foreseeable future.

Went for Saturday Bruch.

Appetisers were great, main course so so (risotto a bit cold and small portion, meet too chewy). Desserts very good.

Drinks (free flow) it’s the deal, great cocktails and house wine.

Service was horrendous. Wait staff was rude and even declined to take a photo for us. Food was good but seemed as soon as the manager left for a meeting, the staff treated us terribly.

The service was friendly and genuine. The menu seemed confused and was brought out in a strange order. Oysters had run out. Food left sitting on the pass too long making the lamb fatty to eat and the potatoes soggy. We had to send the risotto back. For a restaurant of this caliber and the price I expect more attention to detail and the food should be perfect.

Both the city view and harbour viewfrom the restaurant is stunning and the interior layout is stylist and comfi. The waitress serving our table is attentive and pleasant, but obviously shortage of staff that impaired the service standard. The choices of champagne offered are well selected, but the food is not impressive.

This place keeps on dazzling its guests with their continue research of new products!! Just perfect!
I’m not vegan, but tried some really delicious vegan options. The Italian asparagus were unbelievably good and the sushi keeps on being sublime every time I visit this temple of perfection!!!
Service as always top notch!! Well done all guys, keep rocking!!

You are paying for the view. The food is good but for the price, regardless of the amazing view, it should be excellent. The service is quite good except 2 times the waiters thought it was ok to reach between me and my partner to clear the table in a way that meant we had to stop our conversation mid sentence. They also interrupted us to take our order rather than waiting until we had finished our sentence... But otherwise the service efficient and friendly. Given the price, I could only recommend Aqua to a friend for the view.

Fantastic view, possibly the best in HK, great food. Service was friendly, and fast. However the server needed just a bit more training on wine service, especially on the practical side. Overall, great experience!
