Bismarcks review of Acqua Restaurant Kalim:

The menu contains a mixture of Italian & International cuisine (even Pizza is available). There are 6 tables outside and about 10 tables inside (air-con).

We tested:

Starter:
Pizza Margarita: good, backed in perfection in an Italian pizza oven for 340 Baht

Main Course:
Mediterranean sea-bass cooked in Vermentino wine, fresh artichokes, potatoes, cherry tomatoes and capers.
Grilled spiced octopus on a trilogy of rosemary potatoes and Burrata’s “stracciatella”

Both meals were good, but not outstanding.

Desert:
Sicilian “Cannoli” stuffed with sweet ricotta cheese, candied orange chocolate shavings in the Marsala flavoured Cannolo.
Chocolate and Gorgonzola mousse with pear ice cream.

The cannoli was good, the mousse was outstanding.

Drinks:
Water ok, beer standard, Wine selection excellent (we chose the Bodega Piedra Negra Malbec Reserva 2012 from Argentina), coffee good.

Ambiance:
modern style (metal/plastic), seats outside not very comfortable, and the garden isn’t well maintained.

Service:
really good

The total bill including VAT and Service charge for 2 persons was around 8,000 Baht.

Summary: If you compare price, quality and ambience….it is too expensive for what you get.
