Some restaurants spend years investing their time and energy to be part of the exclusive chef hat club, while others prefer to devote their resources in keeping their customers happy, such is the case at Sydney's Aqua Dining. The restaurant, which opened in 2000, is part of the AQUA Dining Group, owned by Bill Drakopoulos. As well as Aqua Dining, Drakopolous also owns the four restaurants that bare the "Ripples" moniker at striking waterside locations such as Milson's Point, Chowder Bay, Sydney Wharf and Whale Beach.

Aqua Dining offers 180-degree water views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Photos just don't do the vista at this restaurant justice. To one side, you can watch as fitness fanatics energetically swim lengths of North Sydney Olympic Swimming Pool. Or, for those who have forgotten to exercise that day and prefer to eat their meal and sip their wine guilt-free, guests can angle their seats out towards Sydney Harbour, where the Harbour Bridge and the iconic Sydney Opera House loom impressively overhead. Renovations by renowned architect Sidney Koh in 2011 have transformed the dining room into a fresh, uncluttered space with pearl white tables and chairs with natural beech framing. Drenched in natural light, with a relaxed and casual vibe, Aqua Dining combines everything that a waterside restaurant should.

The effort that the Aqua team invests in ensuring that the restaurant stays at the cutting edge of the hospitality industry shows. From the dining specials to the restaurant's sleek aesthetic, all elements of the Aqua experience have been well researched and professionally implemented.

For a special treat arrive by water taxi.

I luckily had the chance to do one week of work experience through my school, I had the best time. EVERYTHING is freshly even their own pasta and bread. They are all excellent and talented chefs. Beautiful location.
