Acqua confirmed as one of Asia’s Finest Restaurants


AcquaIf a poll was held for Phuket’s best fine dining restaurants, we’re quite sure that Alessandro Frau’s Italian restaurant Acqua would be very high, if not top of the list.

Now it is not just their customers who believe this to be the case. Asia’s independent and authoritative guide to the region’s finest restaurants, The Miele Guide, has now added Acqau to their list of Thailand’s best restaurants, of which there are a total of 45 listed.

The Miele Guide was created in 2008 in order to better recognise and celebrate Asia’s best chefs and restaurants. The annual publication evaluates restaurants across the region and releases an annual ranking of Asia’s Top 20 restaurants in addition to profiling the best restaurants across Asia.

They are selected after four rounds of judging which have been set in place to ensure that a credible, transparent system is used to showcase establishments that deliver true excellence and exceptional dining. The multiple rounds of judging also ensure that The Miele Guide accurately reflects the opinions of the dining public in Asia as well as the region’s most respected restaurant critics.


When assessing restaurants, all voters and jury members are asked to consider:

  1. the quality of the food served
  2. the ambience of the restaurant
  3. the level of service offered. Most importantly, their votes should reflect the tastes of Asian diners.

Congratulations to Alessandro and the fantastic team at Acqua.

If you’ve not been fortunate enough to experience dining at Aqua, please ensure you make a booking as soon as possible and you’ll soon realise why they have been voted one of the best restaurants in south East Asia.
