Each dish at Aqua is a pure perfection. Flavours are pure and intense and combined with a sensibility of a great master. What surprises even more are textures which are making every dish a new discovery – from crispy and fresh to beautifully melting and creamy, each bite is an new pleasure. Visiting Aqua means a start of a new addiction. I was asking myself if Sven should start an international delivery of his Ruinart Rose sorbet, a divine creation! Excellent also selection of wines – a big bravo to the sommelier! Sven Elverfeld and his Aqua are one of those chefs and places where 3 Michelin stars are more than deserved. An unforgettable experience.
