“Aquagrill is great for the food & wine snobs!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

The restaurant is not much to look at with slightly tacky decor but, who CARES? With a great food and wine selection, it doesn't matter. The Aquagrill's trademark falafel salmon dish is really outstanding. I love seafood, but am really picky because I can only tolerate it fresh. This restaurant have developed connections where their oysters are freshly shucked onto your plate only 3 hours after they have left the water. Yum! The wine selection is vast. My husband, a wine enthusiast was so satisfied with the food and wine selection that he insisted on going twice..not bad for a 5 day stay. Highly recommended. Friendly, quick service. A must do.

“Old Fashion style for good seafood”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

A mix of eastern kitchen and seafood plates. The service was very nice, they explained to us all the plates and they took good care of our needs.
The plates were to spicy for my taste, but the good thing was that you can always choose to have a simple grilled fish with a simple side dish.
There is a wide oyster selection, very good ones!
The interior was a bit dark and old fashion, but overall the experience was good.

“Great seafood in the City”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

This place is just "spot on" every time. I dine here every chance I get when in the city, and love it more each time. Great staff, great kitchen, great food.
