This place is an Aruban staple. The food is adequately prepared and the Grouper and Wahoo is always fresh with a few alternative preparations. The atmosphere is island eclectic and the staff always pleasant. This is not a high end restaurant but it fits the bill for a moderately priced Aruba experience.

The setting was very pretty. The tables were all on the beach. The food was very average. Our reservation was screwed up on their part. They made no attempt to make it up to us. would not go back.

We actually stayed here in their new villa on the water! It was fantastic. The food was fantastic. Our stay included dinner and breakfast the next morning. John David the chef and Sol the server/anything else you need person were great. It was super romantic and absolutely beautiful. We will go back again.

Nice quiet place, a bit of travel, but well worth it. Less formal than Barefoot. Some tables are on the beach, some under the palm trees - definitely an experience. While making reservations please note that they open around 6, though the receptionist may take your 5:00 reservation as well, but you'll be the first one there.
