Went for lunch. Nice atmosphere overlooking pool.
Only a handful of guests as it was quite season. Husbands beef burger was raw inside so was sent back. Was cooked properly the second time but a little off putting when blood drips out of your patty. Didn't go back.

Me and my toddler had several nice meals here, all were absolutely delicious. The dumplings were a hit with my wee girl, they were demolished in record time with nothing left on the plate. A lovely relaxing setting.

Had a chicken wrap, it was delicious and great value for money. The glass of water on the side was very nice too.

It's located a bit far from the central Muri Beach and tucked away from the main road resulting in it not being crowded as some other (overpriced) places down the road. The restaurant itself looked very nice, as did the hotel bungalows nearby.

We were staying at this resort so tried the restaurant a few times. Always a good idea to kick off with a cocktail or two at Happy Hour prices! Happy Hour is usually 4-5 but sometimes was 4-6.
Note that the restaurant is poolside and not right on the beach but still has a lovely atmousphere. There was live music a couple of times a week and one night was very impressive (can't remember their names, sorry).
We tried 'Garlic Lime Calamari' which was perfectly cooked and we kept trying the Dishes of the Day usually fish (often with mixed salad and garlic lime aoli) and all were delicious. The Pork Tenderloin was also yummy as a change from the usual local fish.
Other reviews have noted poor service - but I do think this really depends on who is working on the night as they did have a few newer staff working some nights who weren't as fast as the regular staff and became a little distracted - Hey sometimes you can allow for "island time" as we are on holiday after all!
The house Pinot Grigio was a great find for us. No complaints at all, well worth a visit.

We had our wedding reception at Aqua Cafe and it absolutely amazing.

The food was 5 star and the venue was decorated perfectly.

We also dined here on several occasions through out our stay and were never dissapointed.

I would highly recommend Aqua cafe.
