Seafood
Aqua Grill seafood restaurant in Aruba is set in a contemporary décor combining the traditions of a New England fish house with the ease and character of the Caribbean, it didn’t take long for Aqua Grill to enjoy a loyal local and tourist following on the island. The award-winning chef’s philosophy of combining both classic seafood dishes with contemporary cuisine and presentations quickly put Aqua Grill on the short list of must-dines with the concierges of Aruba’s fine resorts. Aqua Grill also reaped accolades from such prestigious travel publications as Fodor’s, who says, “This hip restaurant is heaven on earth for seafood lovers, who will find fresh fish galore…”

My Husband and I came after a long flight for dinner. We ordered the crabcake for an appetizer and I had one of each type of oysters. Every oyster I had was wonderful. I ordered the Chilean sea bass and my husband had the skewered shrimp. I must say that is the best shrimp I’ve had in a while. The sea bass was good. The whole experience was nice! I would recommend this place.

Aqua Grill is a must if you’re visiting Aruba. Sounds common by name but the food is exceptional. Our server was hands down one of the best we’ve had ever. Definitely a staple of the island.

The food is horrible. I definitely felt like I wasted $160, these guys are missing the fundamentals of cooking. I’m not sure how they got such a high rating, they may have been good in the past but the food is trash, from the wine to the food.

The service was great and our server made our kids laugh and apprecite the moment at the restaurant.
Good dessert as well.
We really recommend this restaurant to the seafood lovers.

Incredibly regrettable not because it was bad. It wasn’t. But because it was the very definition of meh. Meh location. Meh food. Meh ambiance. Meh service. Meh menu. The only thing amazing was the bill.

great place to eat. We were seated outside, and it was NOT windy, which made for a pleasant evening. Inside was quite loud, so I'm glad we were outside to have normal conversation. Food was very good, service was good. If back in Aruba, will definitely eat here again.

One of our favorite Restaurants in Aruba. It’s a fantastic dining experience from beginning to end. Starting with a knowledgeable and courteous staff and ending with a sumptuous meal. I would absolutely recommend Aqua Grill.
