    Aqua Kyoto certainly has a great buzz. Upon arrival we were shown to our table but chose to change which was no problem. Food overall was well presented and delicately flavoured.
    Buzzy atmosphere, outdoor roof terrace gorgeous. A fun night out people watching with good food. We weren't pushed to pay and leave which for a busy Saturday was appreciated as we had been notified by email that we only had the table for 2 hours.

    Amazing location and views but rather disappointing service, we waited ages for our food and to order. The portions were very small too

    The food was really good. However, It was a birthday celebrations and the waitress ruined the surprise by getting the cake and candle to the wrong person. The candle was not lit even. i think for the money you spend in such a restaurant, the staff should be more careful and accommodate birthday celebrations in more tactful way.

    The restaurant itself is amazing with the perfect rooftop with music pumping out loud, sofa and chairs and a bar outside! Nevertheless the food was amazing and would definitely go back there. Also the best features of the restaurant would probably be the rooftop settings and the dining area.

    Best sushi roll I have ever had! The outdoor terrace is beautiful.

    Delicious food, lovely venue, a la Carter menu is quite pricey though.

    Absolutely loved it! We went for the set menu offer and it didn't disappoint! The cocktail was yummy, the food was fresh and tasty. The service was of a very high standard, they were welcoming, friendly and didn't rush us at all! I can't wait to go back, next time I'm sitting at the chefs section in the middle! :)

    Only disappointment was the rain!
