You will be amazed to see the collection of various aquatic species like fishes, crabs, lobster, etc. We enjoyed our dinner here amongst aqua life. Simply fantastic.

Came in with big expectations. Some of the displays are really nice, but the aquarium is that her small with not enough "big" displays. Some of it is under renovation so perhaps we missed something.
