“Good, but the buffet is 95% seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

If you like seafood, there is a lot of bang for the buck here. However, I am a steak guy and buffet is limited on red meat. My wife said the seafood was excellent, and well prepared. She would know. Give them a shot though, good eats and nice atmosphere.

“Average Breakfast Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The breakfast buffet was okay for the price in the resort breakfast inclusive package but no daily variety. It is the same food every day. It would be nice if it was varied just a bit.

“IT WAS FREE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Ate at this restaurant because I received a free voucher from the Renaissance Aruba Resort due to a room mix up.The breakfast was "American buffet". There were many choices, even an omelet/egg station. There was lots of fresh fruit choices as well as oatmeal, cereals, yogurts, etc. Beverages not included in the voucher other than coffee or hot tea. This is also a menu available but the choices are limited. The food was ok. The best part was the fact that it was "free". I did not eat here again as there were many other choices available in the Marketplace across from the hotel with wonder outside seating. Had I paid for the meal the price would have been $20 US.

Breakfast at Aquarius every morning. The staff (all the girls) are friendly and accomodating and the food is excellent.

“Poor buffet - great service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I visited Aquarius with clients during a business trip to Aruba..the Cuban themed buffet was very poor..our lunch was rescued by a descent salad bar, some spicy ceviche and personalized service by the waiter...I cannot complain about the service...the staff is wonderful...I will be back to try the a la carte options.
