Our group of 3 adults and 3 children enjoyed a lunch before our aquarium visit. The food quality/quantity was fine, but the price was above what one would expect in an aquarium setting. Service was below par.

I personally really enjoyed this restaurant for lunch! So many things to look at because of the huge aquarium in the center of it. Food, service, drinks everything was fantastic for us.
