Guam Diner Bytes: Premier Polynesian Dinner Show at Fish Eye Marine Park
I had always wanted to go to Fish Eye Marine Park’s Polynesian Dinner show and was very delighted to get invited by a co-worker to experience the brand new dinner show that Fish Eye has created after renovating their stage. They have also imported some renown Tahitian entertainers to augment their dance troupe. What you should know is that Fish Eye is offering a very limited special offer for local customers to show their appreciation. This special lasts through July 17, and extends a 50% discount from the regular price of $88.00 (adult) and $44.00 (Children 6-11 yrs). Drinks are not included in these prices.
The Dinner Buffet starts at 7:00 p.m. and lasts an hour. The show begins at 8:00 p.m. and ends at 9:00 p.m. Fish Eye’s dinner buffet has seasonal themes, and the current one, “Blessing from the Ocean”, features a Nigiri Sushi making demonstration, and a Grilled Fish Corner. The “Tahitian Party” themed buffet is scheduled to start soon, and will feature Brochettes (three kinds of grilled kebabs), open faced sandwiches, and sliced prosciutto ham on tropical fruits. You may wish to contact Fish Eye to see what their current theme is. One coming in the later part of this year is “Hola Spain Fair, which will have Grilled Rack of Lamb, Roast ham, and Roast Turkey, among other items.
The nightly standard buffet menu is quite extensive and will definitely fill you up!! Among the selections are a fresh salad bar, Snow Crab Cocktail, Assorted Seafood appetizers, Assorted Nigiri Sushi, Clam Chowder, Shrimp Coconut milk, fish & vegetable cream stew, Flounder and Green Vegetable Chinese style, Pork Baby Back Ribs Hawaiian Style, Shrimp and Scallop with Genovese sauce, cold udon noodle with topping, steamed fresh vegetables, assorted tropical fruit, desserts galore, and bread & butter.
The show is a lively, spirited and fast-paced extravaganza of dance, chants, singing and story-telling. The fire dances are exciting with many members of the troupe showing off amazing skills. One of the newly arrived dance performers is Joel Avaeoru, who is a legendary Tahitian entertainer. Other performers who recently arrived are Rodolph Teriinohorai, Esaielotua Chong, and Mauiti Miagoux, who has won numerous cultural dance contests in Tahiti. The bottom line is you get a truly authentic Tahitian dinner show that will have you standing up and applauding at the end as the Queen and her entourage wave good bye as they float down the small waterway that fronts the main stage.
