    My husband cut his arm when walking in and staff couldn’t be more helpful! Bandaids were immediately given to us. The meal was super fresh and plentiful. My only criticism where the Crab legs were extremely small. Lobster tails were cooked to perfection.

    Very disappointing based on previous experiences. Buffet has been scaled back drastically. Used to have platters of cooked shrimp and smoked salmon. Used to have smoked eel and other delicacies. No more. Price the same but far reduced in quality. Server, Adrienne, was excellent and kind. Not a good value any longer and not to be recommended by me.

    Your seafood is prepared right in front of you. Line was a little annoying as some people ordered 3-4 items at once. Highly recommend and will go again. Service was fantastic.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
