I didn't find it vegan-friendly, either, but...

My only visit to Aquarius was this past winter or spring, while living in France (we did try to go one other time, but they were full). I remember nothing about what I ate, or even if I had dessert, which doesn't say much for whatever it was. But I do remember that I had a hell of a time trying to find something vegan, and seemed to have no luck getting through to our waitress.
As it turns out, she gets a get-out-of-trouble-free card -- we finally succeeded at communication at the end of our meal, and as it turns out she is somewhat hard of hearing and usually works the quieter lunches (not dinner), so she was having trouble understanding everyone, not just me, because of background noise. *Vegans take note:* She explained that while the menu is indeed fairly devoid of vegan options, if you call ahead and tell them you're vegan, they can usually make something for you. I have had great luck with the "make me something vegan" option at other places (in the States), though I never got a chance to try it here. Would love to see how well it works...
nice décor, they have the english-language expat mag
can suck for vegans
