It has been five years of marriage. We decided to have anniversary lunch in Kuala Lumpur

Time flies so fast. It felt like we have just gotten married recently, but in fact we are already into our 5th year of union. I still remember how I thought that I would not travel much after getting married. How wrong I was. Marriage is a blessing especially when you can tow your partner along for the adventure that is coming. As for out 5th anniversary, we decided to do something different. Instead of the usual dinner, we decided to have an anniversary lunch in Kuala Lumpur. After searching for the best place, we decided to have our anniversary lunch at AQUA Restaurant & Bar.

Where is AQUA Restaurant & Bar – the place to have anniversary lunch in Kuala Lumpur?

AQUA Restaurant & Bar is situated at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in KLCC . It is one of the restaurants for the Hotel. AQUA Restaurant & Bar specializes in Italian and Western food and as compared to other restaurants in the Hotel, this restaurant has an open-air concept.

To get here, you can drive to the Petronas Twin Towers and enter into the carpark for Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Alternatively, you can take the rail and disembark at KLCC LRT Station.

The Food at AQUA Restaurant & Bar

As mentioned earlier, AQUA Restaurant & Bar offers a wide variety of Italian and other Western dishes. Since Amira loves Western food so much, we decided to come here for our anniversary lunch in Kuala Lumpur. For me, considering that this is a restaurant in a 5-star hotel, the price is quite reasonable and not as exorbitant as what I thought it would be. If you go to places like TGIF, Chilli’s, I would say that the prices are within that range.

Four our special occasion, we ordered a pizza for our little daughter (we just can’t leave her, that is why we decided to have a lunch instead) and burger for yours truly. Amira had some pasta (which is her most favourite dish) and we ordered a molten cake as dessert.

Our verdict for the food is they passed with flying colours! The pasta is delicious and the portion is also generous. The burger has its patty cooked really well and it was well-seasoned too. The melted cheese adds to the scrumptious taste of the burger. As for the pizza, our little one kept feeding herself with slices of it, so that explains!

The molten cake is also pretty nice although a bit too sweet for my liking. The cake also took sometime to be served since they baked the molten cake upon order. The good part though is that it is served fresh from the oven.

So, I would say that to have an anniversary lunch in Kuala Lumpur, you should try and check out AQUA Restaurant & Bar.

Ambiance and other info

AQUA Restaurant & Bar has an open air concept, so it might be quite stuffy if the weather is too hot. However, you can ask to be seated at the shaded area where it is colder. Since it is situated at the pool area, it offers nice view of the KLCC area. Be warned though, you can’t see the Twin Towers since it is situated directly below the towers. But you can still see the reflection of the towers from nearby buildings.

On some days, they also offer BBQ by the pool where they grill seafood by the poolside and serve to the patrons. We have yet to try this but we might someday. If you want to make a reservation, you can call +603-2380 8888 and they will help you to do so.

In short, with good food and pretty view, we truly had a blast and enjoyed ourselves at AQUA Restaurant & Bar. We truly recommend this place if you are looking to have something different i.e. an afternoon anniversary lunch in Kuala Lumpur.
