Aquarium Restaurant Review

As the name suggests, fresh seafood is the specialty here. Spend the day at the adjacent Magazine Beach (you can rent kayaks or snorkeling gear) and then break for a cool drink or satisfying lunch—a salad, sandwich or burger, fresh fish, or pasta—served on the waterfront deck at the restaurant's La Sirena Beach Bar. Lush plants and palms surround the dining room, and a waterfall adds a touch of romance in the evening. The dinner menu always includes fresh fish, grilled lobster, and specialties such as callaloo cannelloni. On Sunday, there's a beach barbecue with live reggae music.

    Aquarium Restaurant Review

    My husband and I had lunch at Aquarium with some friends a couple of weeks ago and discovered that what used to be a nice restaurant has become a place of terrible and rude service that isn't worth your time or money. We decided to give Aquarium one more shot since they are newly renovated and perhaps the staff was still adjusting during our previous experience. Unfortunately we found that the same problems of poor service were all too evident. It took an hour for us to receive our meals and later on after looking at the dessert menu it took the waitress 20 minutes to come back and take our order. In order to get our water glasses refilled the first time we had to ask 3 times, the second time we needed a refill my husband ended up having to go and get the water pitcher himself and bring it to the table after waiting 15 minutes and multiple requests. When we spoke with the "manager on duty" she apologized saying that they had been busy (but there were at least 3 people standing around at any given time during our dinner). She did not offer us any compensation and took another 10 minutes to bring us our bill. We were with a party of 8 for a birthday celebration and were treated like this; imagine how much less they care about your business if you only are in a party of 2.

    Aquarium Restaurant Review

    My husband and I were a party of 11 on Easter Sunday at the Aquarium which turned out to be a very bad experience. We will never go back there. The service at this restaurant was so very poor that I wonder what keeps them in business (perhaps the location). After waiting for a considerably long time to get the menus, it took the wait staff a very long time to serve the main course. The food was eventually brought out a little at a time, e.g. side orders came long after the entrée. To top it off, an ice cream dessert that was supposed to be coconut tasted nothing like coconut. And even worse, one of the more senior guests bit into a piece of glass in his ice cream. Unbelievable! When these problems were brought to the wait staff attention, there was no apology. She simply took the piece of glass away. Speaking to the “manager” did not offer much redress. Instead of apologizing, she laid blame on the supplier. This is unacceptable Ms. Aquarium manager. You offered no sincere apology; you made it appear that your customers are not that important. Overall, the main course was delicious but the customer service was very poor. Aquarium management your business would not survive in the US because of the many options. Visitors and others thinking of going to the Aquarium Restaurant beware…

    Aquarium Restaurant Review

    Don't make the mistake of eating here. You will wait a long time to be handed a menu. You will wait a long time for an order to be taken. You will wait a long time for drinks to arrive, and they won't be back for refills when they're gone. You will wait a long time for your appetizer, entree, dessert to arrive. And if you complain, you will get nothing but attitude in return. No apologies, just excuses. I don't blame the staff. They clearly have not been trained. I blame management. There is no organization for which wait staff works which table. It's just chaos. No one is responsible for anything. You have to get up from the table and find someone to look after your order. The managers have the same bad attitude as the staff. We had more than 10 people at our table, both tourists and locals. Not one of them would ever eat here again. Grenada does not have the same standards of customer service you would find in other cities around the world, but this place is bad even for Grenada. Take heed of the reviews of this place; they are all bad. That should tell you something.

    Aquarium Restaurant Review

    My wife and I ate at the Aquarium several times while staying in Grenada. We had both lunches and evening meals. We never had any reason to complain, the food served to us was of the highest standard, it was served at exactly the same speed we have been served all over the Caribbean (what I would describe as relaxed). The owner regularly came to our table and chatted, we certainly never had any bad attitude from any member of staff. We will be back in Grenada this May and are both looking forward to visiting the Aquarium again.
