“A triumph of flavours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Fantastic setting by day or night

If you go here then try the Broccoli with Salmon strips as your soup, one of the best soups I have ever had, the Aquarium medley is a great choice if you want to sample many superb fish dishes all in one plate, from the lobster to the shrimp and the sauces in which they bathed are tastebuds had a field day.

“Great lunch but not so happy with dinner.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Our first visit for was lunch. The salads and sandwiches were very good. Service was good and the view is lovely. We returned the following evening for dinner and were not as impressed. Both men at our table ordered grilled lobster which was over cooked. The garlic butter did not make it to the table until we were half way through the meal. The ladies both ordered Beef Wellington and both arrived at the table very over cooked. I sent mine back and ordered a fillet mignon which was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The white wine list was disappointing.
The #2 rating is too high for this restaurant.

“Great food shame about the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

After reading the reviews about the Sunday BBQ's we thought we give it a try since we were staying at the Grenadian Rex which is 5 minute walk along the beach. Setting fantastic, enjoying the food and drinks, listening to the live Reggae music and watching the sunset over the horizon. Food was fab with fresh grilled lobster and rib eye delicious and the prices was reasonable. The only down side was the service, it was so slow even for Caribbean standards !
Great food and atmosphere but the service enough said. Go for the food and the atmosphere.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Went to the Aquarium with my family for their famous Sunday BBQ. After negoating the 1:5 slope down to the bar/restaurant, arrived to a mega chilled beach atmosphere, with chilled reggae music being played by the live band, to wall to wall 'beautiful people' hanging out at the bar and families relaxing on the beach. The unlimited salad bar set us up for freshly BBQ'd ribs, chicken and shrimps, with regular Nd sweet potato fries. An absolute must! Just make sure you bring your chilled self to get the best out of the whole experience!

“Excellent service and food right on the beach”

I have visited this restaurant 3 times for dinner. They have the best service I have found in Grenada. We especially like the Sunday "barbeque".
