Average meal

Went with a family group and too bad if you just wanted a salad. It was expensive if you are not a big eater. I know they have to cater to kids but nuggets, chips well you can get anywhere for a lot less. Other couple were quite happy with it as they could keep piling their plate but not... read more

The seafood buffet is the best, with the best quality prawns I have ever had. My husband loved the oysters and got more than his money's worth. The dessert bar is to die for. A great night out with family or friends, not the ideal place for a romantic night out as it can be quite noisy.

Food was very average for the price , a very small noisy space with a million children , if your after a quiet meal this is not the place for you but if you have a large noisy family I guess it is ideal ! Food average the best part was the desserts and the roast wasn't to bad either... More

Apart from a lovely salad shared with my daughter by the pool the only other meal we had was Saturday night buffet.The selection was disappointing considering the location and proximity to some of the best seafood and fresh fruit along the eastern seaboard ofAustralia.I think the buffet is popular more because of the lack of other eating options in town...

Quick and friendly service,plenty of staff, no waiting. Good value meals and the quality is superb at all times. Staff always ask when they serve your meals if you require anything else. Now that is value added.

Food including seafood is plentiful but quality could be better. Food is restocked regularly so there is never an issue with filling your plate. Cost is reasonable and service is good. This was my second time at the restaurant and it was consistent both times.

The buffet breakfast at Aqua is decent. There is a fair bit of choice but there could be more of an international and sweet variety that many hotel buffet breakfasts now have. The lack of proper coffee is disappointing and the service of having your plates cleared is slow, but having said that the price is fair and it's a... More
