This restaurant is at the other end of the island from the Main Street but it is well worth the effort to go there. Medium priced compared to most of the fine dining on the island. Beautiful setting to watch the sunset and great food,

Thank galtons

Italian with a seafood twist -- we have never been disappointed here. Well worth the short trek out from town!

We celebrated my wife's birthday with friends and had an excellent evening. I made a reservation late in the day, but we were given a fine table over looking the harbour. The view was magnificent and the staff were friendly and appropriately attentive. Not white glove service, but right for the venue.

The food was well prepared and served simply in ample portions. The calamari fritti was very good, my wife's hog fish picatta, which was a chef's special for the evening was excellent. I had braised lamb shanks that very very adequate. The reduction was a bit too strong but still tasty.

The odd thing about this restaurant was that bread was unavailable except by special request. We had ordered Caprese salads which were drizzled with an excellent olive oil but the only bread available was the entree garlic bread. It took a little negotiation but the chef accommodated us by sending out a portion of garlic bread without the garlic butter, basically lightly toasted plain bread.

The wine list is decent and the prices were very reasonable.

If you want to dine al fresco in Harbour Island, this is a good choice.

We found ourselves without dinner reservations, and were looking for a nice place to dine on Harbour Island. We enjoy trying as many restaurants as we can during our travels, and have had some great meals. We arrived at an early hour, without reservations, and were told that they were booked up, but we could wait and see if a table would become available. Seating is very limited, but the restaurant is dockside and very picturesque. At first, my husband felt uncomfortable, since the hostess appeared a bit unwelcoming. We sat at the bar, had some drinks, and waited. The bartender was very friendly and encouraged us to wait for a table. I am so glad that we took her advice, because the meal was delicious. The portions are large and we ended up ordering way more than we could eat. Everything was delicious. Fish caught that day, pasta, huge salads, all simply but tastily prepared. I would certainly return for another visit. It's a great little restaurant!

We were in HI for 9 days and ate at Acquapazza 5 nights. The 1st night we ate there we took our own Mahi we had caught that day and Vernon the chef came out and asked me how we wanted it prepared. He did an Mahi fingers app for us that was out of this world. Then for our entree's he blackened the Mahi for us and it was fabulous!! It's a Italian restaurant but also has a wide variety of food to chose from with reasonable prices (compared to most restaurants on HI). It is very busy at night so would highly recommend calling ahead for reservations. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
