“Left Room For Improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We stayed at the Hilton and decided to eat at Aqua for dinner and breakfast. The meals are incredibly expensive, with one meal costing two people a total of $89 (no alcohol or anything). The food was dry and lackluster. They served typical Caribbean food, but you can get better at other restaurants around town. Breakfast was about the same, way overpriced for mediocre food. Our pancakes were rubbery, eggs were dry and powdery, etc. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for meals while you are in Nassau.

“Food was great but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Good selection of Bahamian choices here. Compared to other restaurants we tried, this was overpriced, but there are no complaints about the food.

“Real Bahamian Cuisine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We went to the Aqua for my birthday and the Friday night Bahamian Buffet. If you want authentic Bahamian food in a wonderful atmosphere, the Aqua is the place to go. The food was very good and the selection was excellent. You will have a sampling of traditional Bahamian dishes such as: Peas & Rice, Sweet Potatoes, BBQ Ribs, Fried Conch, Bahamian Fried Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese and a desert bar to make you gain ten pounds! If you are not interested in Bahamian atmosphere, but want good food at a reasonable price, you will not be disappointed at the Aqua!

“Much To Be Desired...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

My family and I recently visited this restaurant in celebration of my grandmother's 70th birthday. Prior to dinner, we met with a Host, paid a deposit in advance for our meals (roughly half of our final bill) and made pre-arrangements to ensure adequate seating. During this time, we were taken to a specific area of the restaurant that was said to be most accomodating and were guaranteed there would be tables and chairs assigned specifically for us in this area (app. 20 persons in total). On the day of the event, we were disappointed to discover our pre-arranged seats occupied by another party. We ended up having to sit at various tables across from one another, instead of as a group as planned. We were not impressed with the variety of food the restaurant has to offer, as there are other buffets in Nassau with better quality and more options to choose from. Long story, short...We will not be back anytime in the near future!

“Good enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

I frequent the Hilton and always eat breakfast at Aqua. Good bug not large selection of breakfast items but I really like their fruit and coffee. Occasionally I will eat a lunch or dinner here when I don't want to walk to the many other establishments in the vicinity. The view is nice and the menu is good enough for business lunches ect. Don't hesitate to come here - it's a hotel restaurant so not your first choice in town, but not a bad choice if in the vicinity.
