An utterly transformative dining experience awaits you at Aqua. Helmed by Chef de Cuisine Sven Elverfeld, Aqua places emphasis on Modern European cuisine, sourced from northern Germany whenever possible. The restaurant has been redesigned with an additional window that opens into a private garden area, where a large shell filled with water creates a quiet Zen-like atmosphere.

The materials and surfaces in the restaurant’s interior follow a nature theme. Woven metal curtains made in Paris by Sophie Mallebranche are combined with mirrored walls, resulting in a diffused, shimmering effect that gives the space more breadth with a subtle, aquatic element. A new chandelier creates a distinct accent in the centre of the restaurant. Produced by the French manufacturer CreaLumin, it measures an impressive two metres in diameter.

The organically shaped glass elements created by Brigitte Bonnave from Lille, are illuminated from the inside with fine glass fibres and awaken images of imaginary creatures of the deep. A round, bronze-coloured mirror creates a counterpoint on the ceiling, transforming the chandelier into a floating cloud.

Aqua’s culinary style is both – incredibly simple and cleverly refined. Behind this creative style of cooking is Sven Elverfeld. His modern European style focuses on harmonizing textures in combination with the taste of premium ingredients. Sven Elverfeld’s creations amaze guests with intentional simplicity. And yet each interpretation of what appears to be the ordinary has a surprising twist – a true culinary delight.
