“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Had a meal here as art of a half board hotel package. We had a listed menu choice because of this but what we had was lovely if you like seafood. The food other people were getting from the main menu looked good too. The staff were efficient and hard working and very pleasant. Popular with Spanish people which is always a good recommendation.

“a special occasion on our very first visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

As the name suggests the place specialises in fish and seafood dishes. I am a big lover of seafood and fish so was delighted when my husband (not a fish eater unless it is fish&chips) suggested we go there for our wedding anniversary meal. Luckily, they had one dish he could eat in there too - steak! As soon as we entered, the staff were very attentive to us, they freshly laid a table for us, they basically cleared the already pre-set table for 4, and laid it freshly for 2 (new cloth and all). We decided to sit inside and it was better in the long term as we had a lovely & peaceful place in an air-conditioned room while still being able to watch the passers-by along the harbour. I had the traditional menorcan dish, Calderetta, which, although rather pricey (36 Euros), was amazing! Very messy but also very filling (you get a bib, various tools for the seafood and a bowl with water to wash your fingers). Instead of a dessert we just had an iced coffee which was an experience in itself!...I am saying no more, you`ll have to try for yourselves. Everything in the restaurant is pricey but adequate to the presentation and quality of the dishes and the top class service. Nobody rushed us, staff were very helpful, polite, with excellent English skills, simply first class. I think this restaurant is 5star! We loved our meal, the ambience (spectacular 40 ft aquarium with the authentic Mediterranean fauna can be admired) and the whole experience which was worth paying that bit extra. Would definitely recommend it.
note: When you arrive with kids, the staff put a glass bowl with a goldfish in the middle of the table which will keep the wee ones engaged.

“Not the best fish restaurant for us”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

It was pretty empty on the one night we went and I guess as a result the staff tended to not perform to their best. Provided that you do not mind being inside rather than outside on terrace overlooking marina then the big plus of Aquarium is a dedicated non- smoking area with an aquarium along the whole of the back wall. I think if busy with many children around this could be a problem as even on our visit when largely empty children kept running up to the aquarium around the tables, quite disconcerting.

Quite a small menu and my wife had the Caldera which was large and enjoyable while I had a steak which was fine. The desserts were good and well presented but the place lacked atmosphere and friendliness.

I thought it over priced and pretty uninviting although quality of food good and not a patch on Cafe Balear.

Good food, well cooked, well presented. A varied menu not restricted to seafood. Overlooking the marina.
