Just don't order a vodka gimlet, haha. It was pretty bad, but they happily replaced it. Dinner was excellent. We didn't have time for breakfast this time, but previously enjoyed it. Staff is great. Happy hour 4-6 Mon-Fri.

As the title said: we were not served our food before we walked out after over 1-1/4 hour wait in an almost empty dining room. We had mid week reservations for a 6:30 dinner for three, with notice that it was a birthday dinner for my wife. It was off to a questionable start when we arrived on time, but... More

This is part of the Pala Mesa resort and the only restaurant at the resort. The service was slow. However the food tasted good. I had the halibut. Our server was very nice.

We have been coming to Aqua Terra for 14 years for lunch, dinner and business meetings. Never had a bad meal! Great sushi, awesome clam chowder. Nice views of the golf course and nice bar area.

Been there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Just was there a few days ago with the family. I had the meatball sandwich. Over 10>00 and... More

Food options for dinner were great. we ended up just ordering 3 appetizers: the burrata, the sliders and the enchiladas. All three options were really good and enough for 2 persons. My son had the fish and chips which... More

The website gives you the impression that you can eat here all day. While that might not be a total untruth, there was only bar food menu until 4:00 p.m., and dinner did not start until 5:00. Since we had to be someplace at 5:00, we had the sushi, which would have been our choice anyway. It was much better... More

We went here with friends because of the band that was playing, Custard Pie. My husband and I had the hamburgers and fries and I have to say it was mighty tasty! The service was a little off but we had a table of 10 so I know that is difficult. I love that they were accommodating with us having... More

We live in the area and were looking for a special place to go for breakfast to celebrate our anniversary. Aqua Terra is on the property of the Pala Mesa resort, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. We had a golf course view, in a restaurant with very few other guests at the time we went. Savannah,... More

The restaurant has golf course view. The food choices are good and unique. It's definitely an adult restaurant. The average age of diners I'm guessing to be 50ish.
