We enjoyed our time at Aqualuna, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were seated right next to the Aquarium so the kids could watch the fish, sharks and rays while we were eating lunch. My daughter ordered the kids ‘make your own pizza’...More

Arrival was shady as we weren’t greeted very well, when we asked to sit by the fish tank for a 2 year old boy there was confusion on the face of the waitress who could barely mutter the English language. The owner/manager happily intervened and...More

With an ever changing mural of fish life along the entire wall of the restaurant, it makes for a very enjoyable dining experience. After the aquarium tour there was no better place to sit and relax with a great coffee. There is a good variety...More
