“Excellent food but patchy service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

The hotel is at the down an unmade road behindthe airport. at the foot of a 45% inclined road. Guests with limted mobility should have the taxi drop them at the foot of the slope and enter through the service entrance. The German owner is an excellent 'mine host' and usually gets to speak to each table during the course of the meals. The food is excellent, interesting dishes, well presented and size of theportions is just right.

We have been twice in successive years and there is a 'but'. On both occasions the service was rather slow - not just relaxed, but slow! The staff were forgetful, forgetting to bring water when requested and a l-o-n-g wait for our meal to start. The prices are high but quite appropriate for the quality of food that they serve.

“If you want quiet, don't go to Sunday's BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went to the Aquarium 2 times while in Grenada.
The first time we went was on a Wednesday at lunch time. We had a lovely table overlooking the water. The service was excellent. They treated us very well. The food was top notch. We were not rushed at all and felt very comfortable. Each dish was stunning. Presented beautifully.
It was a lovely experience. One of the people with us was celebrating a birthday and they made it special for him!!!
The second time we went we were not as thrilled. But that is only because we like a more quiet peaceful setting. The buffet BBQ was not as good as ordering off the menu. At least that is how we felt. The meat from the BBQ was delicious!!! The buffet part for the rest of it was not as good.
The service was rushed. Not as friendly. But in their defense, the restaurant was packed and they were doing the best they could.
They have music playing. People are dancing. You can snorkel or swim and then shower off, dress and then have dinner.
We would definitely go back to this restaurant, but would go on a quieter day.

“Great faire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Excellent service, food was quite tasty and plenty of it on the plate. We were staying at a resort down the beach so it was a good 20 min. walk in each direction. The drinks are huge and well worth the price. We attended twice during our 1 week vacation, one evening and Sunday afternoon BBQ which included a band on site. Well worth the visit.

“Inside the Rock in Grenada. Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The food was flavorful and enjoyable. I had a local dish called "lambi". It was everything I thought it would be.
If you are on a budget, this is not the spot for you. It ' s a bit pricey, but worth every $. I was there for dinner and the relaxing atmosphere enhanced by a night view of the island was breathtaking. Will definitely dine there again -- maybe on a Sunday(I heard there is Live music).
My compliments to the Chef. Had a great time!
