    Aqua is always a winner. It was very quiet and we had an outstanding table outside with a view. Very inventive modern food especially the confit calamari. Service is always top notch and the wine recommendations perfect. Also they give those little touches like amuse bouche and tiny treats with the coffee to finish.

    Thank you for your feedback Andrew, we're so pleased to hear you enjoyed and will certainly pass your feedback on to the team who will be thrilled. We look forward to welcoming you back to dine with us again soon.

    We were lucky to be at this amazing restaurant on their last in-house trading night before the shutdown due to this terrible virus. As always the food and service was amazing. Thank you team Aqua, we will see you on the other side of this nightmare we are all going through. Take care and be safe. ????

    An extremely enjoyable night This dinner was to celebrate my 70th birthday. The location was unequivocally Sydney with beautiful views of the opera house and harbour bridge. The dinner was superb with careful attention being made to cater to my food intolerances and the staff were extremely professional and pleasant. I highly recommend this Resturant.

    Thank you Jenny. We’re so pleased you enjoyed. We will certainly pass your comments on to the team. We look forward to welcoming you back to Aqua Dining in the future.

    Would have been 10/10, the only dish that let them down was the Wagyu Beef - they definitely used the wrong cut, not Wagyu in my opinion - tough and not at all a good quality cut. Which is unfortunate as it would have been a perfect menu otherwise. We also had a 30 minute wait for our table, which would have been fine if there was a designated bar or waiting area. It gets quite awkward when multiple tables are waiting to be seated as there is no room to wait. However, our waiter was exceptional and looked after us very well during our time there.

    Aqua Dining

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, Maryanne. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the service on your recent visit to Aqua Dining. We were surprised to read your comments regarding the Wagyu Beef as we haven’t received similar feedback before. We do also have a designated waiting area at our bar however, we are always endeavouring to improve our service and offering so we have passed your feedback on to the Head Chef and Restaurant Manager for review. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

    5 star quality of food in a beautiful atmosphere. Beef was extremely tender and it’s taste can not be better with how they cooked it. Wonderful service. We had a great night out.

    We used the Fork Festival 50% discount to celebrate our 7th anniversary. Cocktails and food were excellent! Service was impeccable. Fantastic views of the Harbour Bridge, city skyline and Opera House from the balcony. The only negative was that the very bright floodlights in the swimming pool area next door didn't turn off after pool closure, but this was out of the restaurant's control. Will definitely go back for another similar discount deal.

    Aqua Dining

    Hi Himanshu, thank you for your providing us with your feedback. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed celebrating your anniversary at Aqua Dining. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

    Food was as to be expected from Aqua. The service was good and quick. However our table seating was not according to the request made in my booking which was disappointing.

    We were greeted with a friendly welcome and sat down with our menus. Drinks came quickly and likewise with the food. Staff were friendly apart from one lady who seemed a bit impatient/indifferent, but the food was nice. The atmosphere was good, although it can get a little noisy when it gets busy. However, it was nice to enjoy a nice meal with a nice view/ambience. Overall quite pleased with our dining experience.

    Thank you for your feedback, Emily.

    With a location like this you know the view is going to be outstanding. The service here also is. The food is very lightly balanced with fairly subtle flavors. The 2hr, 6pm seating is enough for a four course, but we would have welcomed a little more time to soak the atmosphere and the views.

    Aqua Dining

    Thank you, Neal.
