The worst of the lot

Jan 21, 2013 - posted by
A big barn of a place, very noisy due to the hard industrial decor. (Unless you're lucky enough to get a table in the outdoor terrace along the busy street, or are willing to wait in a dull barroom for 30-45 minutes.) Why this place gets a crowd is beyond me. They served a salad with no dressing, just a lump of blue cheese. We were so turned off we left without ordering an entree.

Have been to Aqua Grill several times before, and once again, it did not disappoint. Went with a party of 10 and all enjoyed their meals. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and the indoor area is kept "very" cool. We will definitely be back!
For appetizers, the tuna tataki, mussles, and oysters were a hit. The New England clam chowder had great flavor but there was 1 clam in the huge bowl of soup.
For entrees, the black grouper, tuna, and swordfish were perfectly prepared with a herb citrus sauce. Steaks were also very good and prepared to the proper temperature. Skip the fried haddock fillet that came out mushy and cold, and the baked potato that was steamed, gray in color, and old.

Went to eat on a friday night with no reservation. Place was empty at 6:30 maybe 20 tables open. The hostesses were beyond rude. Looked at my 3 year old and said we would have to wait a half hour since we had no reservation with a smirk on their faces. VERY RUDE AND NOT FOR ANYONE WITH A CHILD. WE WERE OBVIOUSLY NOT WANTED. Had a wonderful meal at the Italian restaurant right across the way. They were so wonderful and the food was delicious. Aqua Grill should rethink how they welcome their customers. They can take a lesson from Oscar across the street.

I've told everyone, it was the best meal I've ever had! My choices were, Caribbean Martini, delicious! Crab fritters as an appitizer, a bit spicey, it did say wasabi sauce in the description. Again, they were delicious, only bad thing was there was only 3 of them, could of eaten a platter full. The entree special was a trifin something, on palenta. Excellent!, a bit spicey, but again I knew from the description it would be. All so, so good! Too bad I didn't have room for desert.

After having dinner at Amazonia we decided to try their next door restaurant Aqua Grill and we donít regret. Have never tasted crab cakes that are so good. My mom had tuna tataki. I order seabass as a main course and my mom scallops. All was delicious! The Pinot Grigio our waitress Andrea recommended was also very nice. If you like seafood (and good wine) you should absolutely go to Aqua Grill.

Horrible, just horrible. Ordered crab, but got some mush brown smurry out of the fry instead. If I order fish, it should look like the fish I ordered. Serve side potato's, or better the potato's lying under the fish, looked if they were consumed before and barfed out. Overcooked, wrong color. Salad contained 1 roman leave, 1 slice of cucumber and 1 whole cherry tomato tossed in the midst of things. The 3 (!!!) green asperges were cold and raw. Bread with plain butter, no tapenade, no garlic butter. Had 1 glass of wine, 1 apatizer and 1 entree and down $70,- HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!?

Ate here on our last night - was unfortunately our worst meal of the week. The dining room was beautiful but way too hot. All three of us were sweating during dinner! Service was poor - nobody ever refilled our water or asked how our food was. The appetizers and entrees were bland without much flavor. Did not stay for dessert. Would not go back with so many other great restaurants in Aruba.
Overall Terrible!

Our last night in Aruba we went to Aqua Grill. We have been there before but it seemed better than ever. With reservations, we were seated promptly and the service was very good. Crab cake appetizer as well as the grilled portobello and special crab bignets were excellent. P.S. Watch out for a very spicy sauce on the crab special that is not mentioned in the description. Grilled snapper and blackened wahoo were fantastic with a nice vegetable medley on the side. Definitely worth a try for great fish and there are a few items on the menu for non-fish eaters.
