Arguably one of the finest restaurants in Kingston. This restaurant has won many awards. Located inside the Radisson hotel, it was hard to find at first. Luckily we eventually found the entrance to Aquaterra. Try to pick a nice day to be there, the restaurant faces Lake Ontario and has a very great view. Aquaterra has very nice designs and the food is superb. You can get a very good deal with the prix fixe menu available I think. There is also complimentary parking.
℘ Aquaterra is a member of “Local Food Local Chef”, a Kingston initiative to promote the area as a destination of culinary tourism.
