  • Restaurant is very good, staff is friendly and food is well prepared. The Aquarium itself is quite decent, maybe worth a visit. but the area is great, especially in summer. there is always a fresh breeze there.
  • Visited last year and was quite surprised how good It was. Lots to see and very interesting. September 2016 Update: Visited again.... Tasteful decor which fits in perfectly with the surrounding fish and tanks. Really well designed, informative touch screens for help in finding out about the fish, helpful staff. Well worth visiting.
  • Amazing place. Been many times since it opened and it has matured and developed into a world class conservation teaching center and all round enjoyable aquarium. Staff and especially management can't do enough for you. Superb and definitely worth a visit
  • Great! Nice talks from the staff and very nice set of intresting facts on the tablets. Foreign kids will find it difficult to reas everything and will rush to souvenir shop (which is also quite good)
  • It's a nice modern building, is well staffed. Very touristy, but also relatively small and short visit overall. Not any big amazey fish on display but nice artistic setup.
