About Aqua Restaurant

With just ten tables available for evening dining, AQUA is very intimate and romantic restaurant, its awe-inspiring views over the Ocean and La Gomera completing the experience. This is a place to come for that special occasion – a date night, a birthday, an anniversary, or simply to celebrate life, love and food.
AQUA is the brainchild of Tenerife's celebrated chef, Lucas Maes who owns and operates two restaurants on the island, each with its own distinctive style, underpinned by Lucas's unique personality.

Originally from Belgium, Lucas grew up in Tenerife, where he developed his passion for creating flavour combinations and visual styles in dishes made built around local ingredients. After 3 years' study and 12 years working in Michelin star restaurants abroad, including Scholteshof restaurant in Belgium, Lucas returned to the Canary islands. In his restaurants he expresses his creativity, using the many exquisite fresh ingredients to be found in the mountains, fields, shores and ocean of the Canary islands.

Exceptional food

We ate here on our last night and we have to say that this was an amazing experience. The views out to sea just added to the special occasion. The service provided by the waiters was first class and nothing was too much trouble.

The food itself was extremely well presented and very tasty. One tip- no need to order starters as you get a lovely selection of breads and dips and an aperitif before the main course arrives. We did order desserts and after our dessert came a complimentary taster cake. All the food was first class.

An amazing place

I ate in the Aqua Restaurant with my husband and we loved all. The food was really tasty, we ordered the Tasting Menu. I'm not eating meat, just fish and seafood and the made the menu for my taste, they changed the meat with some fish. The staff was really nice, Joanna and Cristo were so helpful and polite. We enjoyed everything and the view from up with the sunset was breathtaking. We will absolutely recommend this experience to all of our friends that want to travel to Tenerife.
