Fresh red snapper, plantains, roasted oysters handpicked by our server Joyce who was a delight. Atmosphere was first rate as well. Make the trip if you are in Aruba.

This was the best seafood we had on the island. There are so many seafood restaurants to choose from and I think this is the top of the list in terms of fresh seafood and service. Our hotel recommended it as well. We liked the...area it’s in, with nearby shops and nightlife.More

It was a great B day and first day in Aruba. Our whole experience was great. Joyce our server was especially top notch. It has been awhile since we have been to Aqua Grill because we love trying all the different cuisines on the island....This visit will make Aqua Grill a regular visit.More

Listed as one of the top restaurants in Aruba, we were disappointed with the service (very slow) and the food. For the prices they charge, the fish was average - nothing special. The fried fisherman plate was bland and had no taste. The grouper was...well cooked. Had to wait more than 45 min for our food - in a restaurant that was less than half full. It took them 20 min to get us a bottle of wine. Would not recommend - there are so many better options.More

Call it a trifecta...we were looking for recommendations other than the usual popular spots so asked our concierge at the Surf Club...she sent us to Aqua Grill which was a short walk from the SC. The food and atmosphere were excellent. Our server's name was...Joyce. Extremely friendly and very honest about the menu. We all had a fresh fish dish with bowl of clam chowder and enjoyed. If looking for another place to check out I'd suggest here and ask for Joyce...More

Fabulous Staff!!! Excellent Location! Oysters were Perfecto!!! We loved the location of this restaurant as it was super easy to walk around afterwards and check out some of the nightlife in the area. We ended up at the local beach bar listening to live music...which was so much fun. The food was great at the restaurant and we enjoyed fresh oysters as well as the local fish. Our waitress was helpful and the hostess was just nothing short of adorable. We had a wonderful night and really enjoyed our evening.More

The very best of the fine restaurants we visited. Every item was superb, everyone was extremely nice and helpful. We had heard the sea bass was exceptional, and we were not disappointed—exquisite! The pasta was remarkably good, as were the shrimp and calamari.

We have been visiting this restaurant since it opened. Typically the service is excellent and the food is delicious. We always go with the seafood dishes because they have many great selections. If you have a dish that is not what you expected, tell the...waitress, they will make it right or remove it from your bill! Visit the bar on your way out for a nightcap! PCUSA Rating: A-More

Great restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. Unique items on the menu made this our favorite restaurant. The ceviche was spicy and dressed with lime and cilantro. The soup with coconut milk and seafood had a wonderful flavor and body. Grouper was spicy and...good portion with summer squash and potatoes. Fried scallops were pretty good. Never had Canadian scallops, not as sweet as east coast / New England scallops but breading was light and not overpowering. Finished off with a delicious coconut flan. Service was friendly and perfect. Sat outside on the deckMore

I'm not sure what the hype is about. My visit was ok. The food was just average. My waitress was not very helpful. She only got helpful when I asked for the check. This was one of the most uninspired restaurant visit ever. As I...said, not worth the hope, the prices.More

Found this gem in our second trip to Aruba. Upscale decor, great ambiance, terrific food, and (best of all) a personal and professional service. Denise made us feel like she wanted us to enjoy our meal as an experience! Don’t pass this one up!
