Aquarius - Renaissance Aruba
Best all you can eat seafood I've had in my entire life.
Price/food ratio was so great
I had been here before last year, but for lunch. This time we had diner. The food was good, the seafood buffet was delicious. The service was outstanding, I ask for white rice for my son and in no time I had a bowl of fresh cooked rice! A good experience!
Carved meats were very cold.
Food was excellent!
I heard about this place from TA and stayed four nights at the hotel. I was really looking forward to this seafood buffet but unfortunately we dined on “Taste of Aruba” night. This excludes all lobster and king crab (the sole purpose of dining there). Being that it was our last night there and we were extremely hungry we settled. I appreciated the staff allowing us to browse the choice of food before deciding to dine or not. On this night, there were a lot of meat w/dairy dishes. No seafood, aside from the general sushi rolls and shrimp cocktail at the salad bar. My partner decided to order a la carte (a burger) and I did the dinner special buffet which only included the cold food (salad bar, sushi and dessert). I also ordered the strawberry shortcake cocktail but somehow my server brought me a strawberry daiquiri instead. I did not want to create anymore confusion so we went about our dinner anyway. Overall the staff were very friendly but the restaurant itself was a disappointment. I hope we can try the seafood buffet another time.
My husband and I were in Aruba celebrating his birthday & decided to try this restaurant. It’s a nice place with really great service. They were really nice people who were accommodating.
My husband’s salmon was a bit underdone, but overall the meal was good.
I love the concept of Aquarius. The buffet was not a buffet. They had few choices to select from and the crab was not seasoned and they cut there king crab in half. I really like my food seasoned. In my honest opinion I would not go again because I've eaten at better buffets.
Great breakfast buffet with a made to order omelette station. Mimosas on the weekends. Highly recommend it.
Yess,, but kids could eat for half price instead of full price
Absolutely the best! Staff was Amazing, Adriana are always attentive and friendly, whenever i go and get some more food she dishout my empty plate even without asking, first class!! Can’t wait to go back.
Grossly overpriced poor quality poor. Bugs in food....brown lettuce...yuck ....Stay away!
The taste of the food has come down considerably from what it was before. the variety of food also was not there. The only option for vegetarians was the salad bar and pasta. There were no snack or meal options with rice, bread, curry for the vegetarians.
For the meat eaters, the pork was rubbery, fish was tasteless and the pasta sauce were no way close to Italian.
They did not have our reservation but did not make a fuzz of it and seated us right away!
This is the 2nd time (different restaurant) that this happened to us.
Really good service! Attention for our specific situation (40 weeks pregnant) and adapt to that (preparing a vegetarian sushirol for me and instead of mimosa or champagne we got fresh lemonade, which was delicious).
Really recommend this restaurant!
Aquarius Renaissance is a good choice with great attentive servers. Food is ok at breakfast and lunch time. One big problem is that you can not make reservations for the breakfast time. They did not honor our 8.30 reservation made via OpenTable because they told us that they do not take reservation for breakfast time. The good thing was that we waited only 10 min to get a table of for 5. Later the waiting time got longer.
We have eaten there twice and the service, food , and atmosphere were excellent. We have already recommended this restaurant to several others staying here. Thanks again
Staff is great, food is great, always a great spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Pretty average honestly. This restaurant is more of a buffet than ala carte. The food is just average, but the Staff is very nice and accommodating. The restaurant is more set up to take care of the Hotel Guests who are on the fly getting out to the Beach, or walk about the Aruba night life. Let me say again though...the staff are wonderful.
Excellent seafood buffet! The chef Edward was very good to take us around and tell us what dishes were gluten free and what to avoid. We wound up eating there twice with no issues and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
We waited in line for 30 min to have fish and shrimp. Only one guy cooking. He could not multi task. 7 people in line waiting. We Never did get fish or shrimp. I asked the waiter who was running the place. They didn't do as anything. So for 39 dollars I got salad and rice. Totally unacceptable. Will Never go there again.we come every year.
After missing it for a coupke of years we hoped the seafood buffet would still be wonderful and it was! Aside from an excellent choice of hot entrees, delectable sushi. and cold options, the grill had delish Lobster tails, various fish, crab claws, prawns, and calamari.
Food was not great. Expensive for what you get
For people who love beef and no fish don t go there there is no ambiance never ever again
Great Sunday Champagne Brunch
Lobster was tasteless, shrimp OK. Probably will not return
Food was WAY too salty! I would not come back or recommend it to a friend. I had to drink a gallon of water just to recover from this awful dining experience. I woke up in the middle of the night dying of thirst because of eating that overly salted food.
Was scouting locations for possible business lunch/dinner. The attitude of the management crossed this location off our list quickly. My advice. Go somewhere else.
This is a buffet restaurant. We were not up for that much food so we ordered off the menu. Food was just ok and the serving was not timed well. If you like buffets this may be for you.
Fabulous Seafood Buffet- if you like lobster, crab, shrimp and Grouper grilled to perfection than this is where you want to go Wonderful!
Excellent restaurant! The Seafood buffet was the best I've had. You can't beat unlimited lobster tails, king crab, shrimp and a large selection of fish plus other delicious entrees. Good salad bar and desserts too. The wait staff was friendly and provided terrific service, especially Nebron and Emmett. I was also impressed by Mark. Humphrey made sure that we were take care of. All of this combined made for an exceptional evening.
We were happy with our dinner and would recommend it to others. Arianna was a great waitress. Food was fresh but the lines got long for the seafood as the night went on. Glad we were there at 6:30
Very good seafood selection as well as the salad bar, dessert and other hot food selections!
Vacation- excellent food and fantastic service!
If you love seafood it’s well worth your money. Highly recommend it!
The food and service was surprisingly friendly and nice. Emmely had a smile on her face the entire time serving us. We had some difficulty with our teenagers making up their minds and the time delay never affected Emmely's attitude or service. The entire wait staff, seafood cook and team were just great. Everything tasted fresh and was a good value. Definitely worth the trip from our hotel for a wonderful seafood dinner buffet.
Ordered off the menu instead of the buffet, food was mediocre for the price.
We went to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. Food was excellent and the service great, our server was Betty. Nice experience !!
Had the seafood buffet. Fresh seafood cooked to order... lobster, shrimp, mussels, calamari, and an assortment of fish grilled while you wait. Plus soup, salad, sushi, and cold and hot selections of meats and sides. Excellent price.
Adriana was our server and she was most pleasant, timely service and professional. We will come back again.
Wonderful buffet of local foods with local fish and shrimp grilled on site
The Service and food was amazing! we had an amazing relaxing night. We came there for a birthday. The reception acknowledged the birthday but the waiter didn't, Would have be nice to to the waiter also acknowledge my fiance's birthday. But overall was relaxing, Joyful. We definitely had an good time
