“can't say enough good things”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Amazing place! Had the seafood meadley and husband had swordfish...just fantastic! Drinks are a good size and the prices are very good. Would have eaten there every night if we could! Had lunch there too. The view is to die for, and can't ask for better ambience and entertainment. Staff is right there refilling drinks and making sure everything is to your satisfaction. Stayed and had drinks after the meal, enjoyed the entertainment but couches are uncomfortable. Other than that..couldn't ask for more

Loved the scenery here, and the food was delicious. We had the pumpkin ginger soup and the lobster and blackened fish entrees. Also loved the mango daiquiris!

“No Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

While four of us were on vacation in Grenada last year this restaurant was recommended to us but we never made it. This year six of us vacationed in Grenada because we love the island, the people and the life style. This time we made sure we went to The Aquarium. We were told to go on Sunday because they have a band playing that starts at 3:00 pm. We went on Sunday, February 28th. We arrived at 3:00 pm and it was packed. There were no seats available. We asked if we needed to reserve for supper and where told no, it is first come, first served. We went out on the beach did some swimming, sunning and snorkeling while we waited for a table to empty. We had a couple of drinks while waiting which we went to the bar and got ourselves. After the band finished alot of people left. We found a table along side the beach area and sat down. We waited for a waiter/waitress to come which we thought they would do once we were seated in the restaurant area, take our drink order and give us a menu but nobody showed up so I went to the bar and ordered our drinks. I waited a few minutes to get noticed at the bar. There were a man and lady there. They served everyone ahead of me then the lady walked passed me, looked at me then asked the man if everyone was served now. He told her no, that I was waiting. She walked back and forth in front of me twice more before turning and asking me what I would like. I placed our order and was waiting for it. She turned and said "Where are you sitting?" I pointed out where we were sitting and she told me she would bring the drinks over so I went and sat down. We visited with a lovely couple from Portugal that were sitting beside us. They said they love the place and come almost every Sunday. Finally the lady brought over our drinks. We asked for a menu and she informed us that they don't serve food to the lower section of the restaurant that we were sitting in but she did finally bring us a menu and a wine list to look at when we asked again if we could just look at one so we could decid what we wanted when we did get a table. Shortly after almost all the tables opened up in the top part of the restaurant so we proceeded to go up to one of them and sit down so we could order supper. When we went to sit down we were asked if we had a reservation so we told them no, that we were told we didn't need one and had been waiting since 3:00 pm. They told us to go back down and sit where we were for a couple of minutes and they would come get us and seat us. So we went back and sat down where we were. We still had the menus and wine list but noone ever came back and got us. By now it is 6:00 pm and we were getting hungry. We watched as they carried down food and served the table that was on the other side of the people from Portugal. It was in the same area that we were told they won't serve you food at. This made no sense to us. We really felt like they didn't want us there. We are six fun loving Canadains that were laid back and enjoying relaxing while waiting for a table but by this point we were ready to order some food. We did not get angry we just decided since we were not going to get served here that we might just as well go back to our cabin and feed ourselves so we got a taxi and left. We went back to the cabins where we were staying and had pork and beans and wieners with toast and it was delicious. We love Grenada and will probably visit again but we will not be going out of our way to visit the Aquarium Restaurant again. I must say the restaurant is lovely but no service is no service no matter which way you look at it. It is too bad this happened because as we all know word of mouth can be your best or your worst advertisement and after all the restaurant business is a service industry. A smile from the employees would have been nice too.
