I have been to Aqua Blue several times and it used to be fabulous. Now I would not recommend at all. Disappointing that a restaurant on the Marina at Port Stephens has run out of most of it's seafood. Mind you, there were hardly any other diners beside our party of 10. The 1/2 dozen oysters they had left were... More

I visited this venue for lunch with my partner and 8 month old son. We chose this location as it was shaded and the other cafe was full, which should have been a dead giveaway. The menu is quite expensive which I don't mind paying if the food is good. We ordered calamari to share, prawn hotpot, mussel marinara and... More

Party of three stopped for dinner here , the location is great, right on the marina front. The restaurant was very busy, the waitress was very polite and efficient in taking our order and getting drinks. There were about six items not available on the menu due to a busy day we were told which was a pity. The meal... More

This place was terrible. We had to wait an hour for our entree which was just a side of cheese and some kilpatrick. The oysters weren't even that good. They were small and drowned in sauce. Thankfully we only had to wait about 20 mins for our main. The steak was more gristle than meat and the gamberi was a... More

Had a lovely meal last night. The food was delicious, the staff warm and friendly and the location was perfect. They had a jazz guitarist the previous night which created such a wonderful atmosphere.

Had a nice bruschetta with scrambled eggs and haloumi for breakfast. Breakfast is in the $15-$20 range, lunch is in the $20-$30 range. Nice location at the marina. Attentive and friendly staff during busy Christmas holiday period. Lacks a bit of atmosphere.

Just looking for a beer and couple of entrees to sample. 6 oysters killpatrick with were smothered in bbq sauce left 3 Salt pepper squid not bad but not great. Crumbed Camembert was disgusting full of grease and inedible. Not one to usually complain but honestly have some pride in what you are dishing up.
