The whole atmosphere and decor looks great. But shame the food was disappointing especially for the price u pay. I wouldn't return or recommend. I felt sick afterwards.

Fantastic restaurant with a great wine list. We would definitely return. Open kitchen so you can follow the work from your table. Really nice.

Fantastic little find, short walk up the road from where we were staying. Food was heavenly and red wine a delight. Yes very expensive place but well worth a night out.

Degustation menu was a showcase for the chef in acqua. Food was fresh and well balanced. However, it seemed like the chef was trying too hard. In retrospect, the a la carte menu would have been good enough. Dessert and petit fours at the end is a sweet surprise!

a safe bet when it comes to exquisite italian food in phuket. From fresh-made pasta to fresh oysters and a very broad wine selection rounds off a well operated restaurant. staff knows who is a regular and who is not, so it is better to have a reservation. the tables to the left are more quiet. the resto is on...

I was excited to come to Acqua, spruiked as the best in Phuket. Everything was as expected and the food is very good. Our waitresses were a lot of fun too but management made us feel like they were "doing us a favour" by being there. The ladies enjoyed the good quality wine. I will say I expected a bit... More

Service, ambience and superb cuisine. Lucky for me that this restaurant was at the end of driveway from the villa I stayed at. I ate dinner here almost exclusively after discovering it on my second day. The black truffle risotto was a wonder and the chocolate & gorgonzola mousse was a show-stopper. Book at table and let Joy and the... More
