We had our first night's dinner here in Aruba. We were going to Steak house, but it wasn't open yet. The Birthday Girl had the full buffet and loved it. It was pricey, but she loved it. Other meals were delicious and more reasonably priced....More

If you love fish and seafood come here for the dinner buffet. But would recommend to concentrate on freshly cooked fish which was delicious and prepared to order and leave the other options out. Very friendly personnel!

The food here is very plentiful, varied, well-presented and fresh. We only ate the breakfast buffet but looked forward to it every day. Omelettes, Eggs Benedict, sausages (even pigs-in-blankets!) and other hot food, and all kinds of fruits, smoked salmon, pastries, etc.

$44.95 for seafood buffet but well worth it. Lobster tails, shrimp, king crab legs and crab claws, several kinds of fish and so much more. If you do not want the buffet you can order off the menu

No, the Aquarius Seafood buffet is every day of the week except Tuesday. On Tuesday they have an Aruban themed buffet. Also very good.
