We sat at a table right next to the ocean. The view was beautiful, the sun setting as we ate. The food was great, the chef even came out to talk to the diners. The wait staff was very attentive. Go if you are in Aruba.

We had reservations and rented a limo for the ride from Costa Linda to celebrate a 50th birthday . When we got there they were closed. The driver called and said they were closed . We verified this reservation before we went . They didn't even try to make it up. What a joke.

We spent several times in this restaurant years ago, and it was one of our favorites in Aruba. We had a written reservation and confirmed this one week before our dinner with a pickup at the Hotel. Well, the day came, we waited and waited and waited for the pickup, nobody came, we called and they told us they have... More

I have been three times to Aruba and unfortunatley visiting The Old Man and the Sea was a terrible experience, dirty, bad services, and when the food came after three (3) hours, it was cold. No one had to pay anything, but we left hungry. Its sad, because some years ago this was a nice place, and it is a... More

The grounds here are very pretty. We were there at 6:00 and were the only ones there for dinner. Our drinks were served 25 minutes after arriving and our appetizer was an hour later...... not great for being the only ones there.

Out of all of the places we ate at this would be low on the list. It was not very friendly, the food was just okay. Better spending money at Flying Fishbone near this place

Our first visit to this charming restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. We were the only people there when we first arrived. We were greeted by 2 lovely women who would serve as the wait staff for the evening. The ambiance was amazing. We were treated so well and they saw to every detail. Food was delicious, if a little...

We arrived at Old Man & the Sea at 6:30, the time of our reservation and we left at 10:00 very hungry. As soon as we got in one of the only 2 waitresses immediately gave our family a dirty look. We sat down at our table on the beach and they served us water (all but one of us...the... More

Old Man and the Sea has been our must visit restaurant for several years. Now, the restaurant is on the do not visit list. While the food is still good service is unorganized and we were 3 of 5 people in the entire restaurant. Reservations requested for 7:00 were confirmed for 6:30 – fine. But when we arrived, the table... More
