Art & Architecture

Modern Italian design from artistic etchings and artisanal copperware from Italy to locally crafted furniture, set within a beautifully restored Dutch colonial house, contributes to the sophisticated ambiance of AQUA Forte. 
Derived from the Italian word ‘Acquaforte’, which translates to ‘etching’, the restaurant’s historic walls are decorated with Walter Valentini’s masterpieces.
