The breakfast buffet was $25 / person (which is steep in my opinion) but it was very good. They only have 3 tables outside and we were able to get an outdoor table everyday. The outdoor tables have a view of the ocean and many indoor tables also have an ocean view. The woman that makes omelettes, Julia, was my... More

The food was okay. The service was fine (on island time). Views of the harbor were amazing. Just very expensive for the meal. This is not a "must see" place to visit.

It was our first night on the island and my teenage girls were hungry. However, they were not hungry enough to stray from the "common" food they eat everyday. The menu at Aqua Terra had something for everyone so we decided to give it a try. The atmosphere was lovely, but the service was a bit lacking. Our waiter was... More

Loved the location on the Marriott property but was surprised at the slow service and total lack of concern about slow service. We ate there on a week night evening, with a reservation, and it took over two hours for our meals (no appetizers, no desserts).

We went to this restaurant a couple of times during our stay but was disappointed each time. The food is not really Italian, the flat bread was overcooked, would rather have had a pizza.

We got the Italian buffet which served pasta and pizza in addition to the normal seafood and food. We were not super impressed with the pizza being burnt and the pasta being very bland and dry. The seafood was ok with plenty of options. The dessert bar was great and saved our experience a bit. Service was below average.

Nice buffet and selection menu. Food is fresh except melons each day were not ripe. The cooks at the egg station do a wonderful job. The wait staff are nice but don't offer up many smiles.
