Aqua Terra Bistro

55 E Main St, Buford, GA 30518 View Map

Aqua Terra is a bohemian, award-winning restaurant in the hip Buford dining district. This eclectic American-style bistro is where "traditional" foods are enlivened by inspired influences from world cuisine. Chef Brian Legault creates daily specials, which are not to be missed. Legault achieves complex taste harmonies in every dish, without sacrificing delicacy or subtlety.

Aqua Terra is a wonderfully comfortable place to spend a quiet evening. Both dining rooms are decorated by local artists, giving Aqua Terra a decidedly bohemian charm. The ambiance, the open kitchen and the warmth of the attentive staff all combine with the exquisite food to make Aqua Terra the ideal combination of comfort and elegance.

Event spaces include Aqua 2, a private room with soft lighting and candelabras, perfect for an intimate, private event, The Cellar and the 14-person Lounge. Aqua Terra offers three additional dining rooms and is a great place to host banquets and corporate parties.
