We didn't eat here this time .However last year we did enjoy a nice meal . The passion fruit margarita was delicious . However the fijian lady at the bar was very stern and frankly a little scary . I or any of or friends didn't notice any bad smells -perhaps we were lucky .

couldnt eat my meal because the overwhelming odour of stale stagnant water or sewage - even moving out of the restaurant didnt help - big issues that need addressing

We stopped by to have a drink and a meal but the restaurant was closed even though it was advertised as open for meals and happy hour. Never open we we went back and no staff apparent. Don't bother!

Appaulled by the lack of opening times and the stench of sewage - greeting us daily... When it was open - the food was average - but, the lingering smell of sewage throughout the resort was the real turn off. The staff were very friendly - Mereoni... We booked a Muri Beach Resort, because we had the option of Self... More

The Aqua Bar was very intermittent in it's opening hours. There was a strong smell of sewage around the pool and restaurant that put us off eating there. One benefit of it not being open is we had our breakfasts at The Nautilus and enjoyed their poolside instead.

There were several uncleared tables in the restaurant. It took over an hour to serve us our meals. We ordered steamed fish, vegetables and a side of island fries.... More

Just popped in when driving past after having an average experience at the nearby Sails Bar. Bar was empty but we livened it up and the staff were accommodating. Kids swum in the pool while Mum, Dad and Nanny had a couple of local treats. Great wee spot, nice staff and nice wee pool. Set off the road but nice... More

We tried the Aqua restaurant as we were also staying at the Muri Beach Resort. The menu sounded quite good, but I feel that the chef may be out of his depth cooking this type of food. There are better and cheaper options elsewhere in Muri.
