Any word on Acuario in Port Chester for Latin food?

    Acuario is phenomenal in my opinion. The pricing is very appealing, the food even better. They have a large variety of food for every type of person from the conservative pollo saltado to unique, bold ceviches and other seafood. It can get a little loud (near the bar) but it's not that big of a deal at all. The aquariums throughout the restaurant are cool as well.

      My two cents...
      There is something for everyone however, this is definitely the right choice if you are looking for
      Latin with an emphasis on seafood
      *terrific ceviche*

        Just returned from a wonderful dinner at Acuario Ceviche, as many reported, was excellent. Whole snapper grilled was excellent as were all other dishes enjoyed by our party of 4 Service was wonderful as well. The combination of fair prices,good food and service make this a to go to place and so I will return

          Acuario is very good Peruvian food. The negatives: waitstaff can be inattentive, dining room gets loud, upselling sometimes problematic, and lastly, the whole dining experience can feel hurried/rushed at peak times. If you can tolerate the negatives listed (as I do), then hurry and go get yourself some good Peruvian food at Acuario. Emphasis is on seafood, but try the saltado de pollo or the lomo saltado. You won't be disappointed. ¬°Buen provecho!

            You really nailed the negatives. But the food is definitely worth it.
