Aqua Grill debuted on the Caribbean restaurant scene on the island of Aruba in 2002, boasting a menu of fresh seafood flown in daily from around the world, as well fresh catches harvested from local fisherman right off the island’s shores.
Set in a contemporary décor combining the traditions of a New England fish house with the ease and character of the Caribbean, it didn’t take long for Aqua Grill to enjoy a loyal local and tourist following on the island. The award-winning chef’s philosophy of combining both classic seafood dishes with contemporary cuisine and presentations quickly put Aqua Grill on the short list of must-dines with the concierges of Aruba’s fine resorts. Aqua Grill also reaped accolades from such prestigious travel publications as Fodor’s, who says, “This hip restaurant is heaven on earth for seafood lovers, who will find fresh fish galore…”
The success of Aqua Grill in Aruba translates to what is now a stateside seafood sensation. The fresh-only seafood philosophy and the spirit of warm, friendly island service will be offered at the restaurant’s first U.S. location in South Florida opening soon.
