Aqua – Sventastic!
Head Chef Sven Elverfeld’s cuisine is filled with contrasts and surprises. You can never know in advance how the next dish will be even if you recognise all the ingredients. Sven Elverfeld constantly deconstructs, reinvents and improves his cuisine of mainly European influences. Aqua’s cuisine also has heavy influences from both Sven’s childhood and from all his travels and different jobs abroad in countries such as Japan, United Arab Emirates, Canada and Greece. Sven’s inventive, relaxed and curious approach to his cooking results in a dinner experience that is a must for all food lovers, whatever you will have served, it will be both something unique and most important, something that tastes absolutely fantastic – Sventastic!
Aqua is located in the heart of Volkswagen’s Autostadt just outside Wolfsburg in Northern Germany not far away from Hannover. Autostadt is filled with contrasts just as Sven Elverfeld’s cuisine and is a custom-designed celebration of automotive innovation and history as well as a theme park, but also a brilliant way for the Volkswagen Group to promote its many brands and to tie its customer closer. The Golf is manufactured just nearby and big industrial smokestacks make an interesting part of the environment together with designed buildings for the different car brands. The fascinating surroundings with numerous car design icons from legendary brands such as Bugatti, Lamborghini and Bentley also inspire Head Chef Sven Elverfeld.
Aqua is situated inside The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg hotel that is a perfect setting for the restaurant. Aqua’s contemporary styled dining room is designed by the French interior designer Andrée Putman who has done a brilliant job creating an atmosphere that fits perfect with Sven Elverfeld’s avant-garde cuisine.
The team at Aqua is phenomenal, with everyone from Restaurant Manager Jimmy Ledemazel to the Pastry Chef Nadia Harh. Head Sommelier Jürgen Giesel shows his competence over and over again and offers you a wine pairing you have never had before. The sommelier has a predilection for wines from forgotten regions such as Ukraine and whatever he serves you it will match perfect with Sven Elverfeld’s dishes.
Sven Elverfeld’s contemporary cuisine is a combination of feelings and inspirations and his pristine vision results in an ultimate dinner experience that is a must reservation, and Aqua is a restaurant to constantly return to. Sventastic!
