All the seafood you can eat. Fresh catches of the day, freshly grilled right in front of you. Delicious. There is also a selection of other hot dishes, non-seafood and yummy salad bar. Go there every year!

I expected the seafood to look and taste better considering we were in the Caribbean but that was not the case. The wait staff was pleasant but the food was sub-par. Definitely not worth the $44.95/P we paid. Nor did we eat the worth.

Aquarius offers elegant buffet style dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner l. The food choice - variety has improved tremendously. As frequent guest, my family and I love the rotating choice in meals. Caribbean, Indian, Chinese and so on. A good choice in salads, pasta station and fish station at night. Amazing staff. Some of whom have worked for over... More

The seafood was fresh and prepared right in front of you. It was absolutely delicious!! I had crab legs, shrimp and lobster tails and they were out of this world. Great side dishes too. Salad bar with many choices. Highly recommend!!

We went for the Caribbean-themed lunch buffet with a party of 12. Lots of great choices, plus sushi, salads, pasta station and desserts. Servers were very attentive. We would've tried other days for lunch but we ran out of time. Highly recommended!

I got my fill and money's worth from the grilled lobster tails! However there are plenty options on the buffet, including sushi, shrimp, and several local fish choices cooked to order. If you love seafood, this is the place to go for a fresh, clean buffet for under $50 per person.

This was the best restaurant that we have eaten at in Aruba. The seafood is fresh and cooked to order. Very friendly staff. It is a bit pricey but overall it is well worth the money if you like seafood.

We just returned from Aruba and this was our go-to restaurant on the resort. The highlight was the seafood buffet every night for dinner. Sometimes when people think of a buffet, they think of mediocre food sitting out in heaters all day. That was not the case here. The seafood was made to order right in front of you. They... More
