How can ANYONE recommend this place for a romantic evening? (When I searched for romantic seafood restaurants in Dubai Marina on TIME OUT, this place came out as the ONLY one!).
OK, the place has style and is definitely in with the IN crowd... but romantic? Give me a break!!!!

Absolute disaster of an experience. I invited my whole family to a Eid dinner at Aquara expecting great views and even better food. To my disappointment, only the marina view lived up to our expectations.
The restaurant was almost totally empty and yet the table they had set up to us was facing the kitchen in the corner. When I asked for another table, it took a while to convince them to move us to another table in the deserted restaurant. We were then given the limited menu, which had what looked like good options so we all ordered within 10 minutes of arriving. The food then took over an hour to arrive because "another table's mains had to come out first" (what restaurant can't handle 2 tables at once?!), arrived cold, and did not even taste good. Specific dietary requests that were made were not adhered to and the staff were totally nonchalant about the topic. Even the manager did not seem too bothered, and only removed one of the dishes off the bill as compensation as well as offer free coffee (it was 11 pm by the time we finished - who drinks coffee then?).
Overall the experience was below average and even embarrassing as I had invited my family to what was supposed to be a fine dining experience and instead left angry and with empty stomachs and wallets!

I was promised an amazing experience, but it was a joke. I booked a table for 4 people, and the evening began very nicely, until we placed our orders. We had to wait for an hour for our starters, although a group of people who arrived after us got their starters before us. Then after waiting for another hour or soooo, I was forced to ask for our main meals, and once we finished the main meal we were waiting for the desert menu, and nobody bothered to give us the menu, so I had to go yet again and ask for the desert menu, once we placed the order, only one desert came out, and the other 3 had to wait for ours and it only came out when the other person has finished their desert, and when the bill came out, they had not given me the buy on get one offer on one particular drink, and I questioned it, and they told me that there was no offer although the drink menu that they offered us clearly stated buy one get one for cider. This whole dinner was a nightmare, and made me look like an idiot cos I had to keep asking for the food that we ordered. I tried to comment about the service i received the following day, and all I was told was, that I can visit there again that they will offer me some free drinks, that proved the point that they have no grasp of customer service, they were prepared to offer me couple of free drinks, after ruining my whole night, and they reckon that their free drinks gonna make it fine. I was told that they were gonna escalate this to the management and I have not heard from them since. Just an over priced restaurant with no quality service, I spent just under AED2000 for nothing.

Aquara just gets better by the day and we had a great time once again. The food and service was beyond words and a must try venue.

Dinner at the terrace was lovely and I had been really impressed with food quality and service eficiency from the staff here. The menu is fusion but the Asian twist of tom yum and spices is the one that creates the explosion in your mouth...must try especially if you are entertaining your boss!!
