Best meal of our trip! and they were all good!

about 25 minue drive from the hotels, not bad at all. How would you like to eat on the beach? Perhaps a table with your toes in the water? Amazing place! Family run! Excellent food! Great views. Lots of food! We had two appitizers and two entrees and the two of us could not finish! Glutten... read more

Jennifer was attentive without hovering but anticipated our needs. She organized our meal and wine. Anticipating generous portions we shared 2 appetizers (calamari tempura and tuna tartare) and 1 entrée.(seafood pasta with marinara sauce). Calamari was excellent and the tuna tartare was exceptional -s slices were thick and tender - melted in the mouth. Pasta was good not remarkable and... More

Go to this restaurant and be surprised, you show up and think it looks average, get into the restaurant and go to the back.....wow. The setting is amazing, right on the beach, right on the water. Our table started out at the waters edge, by the end of the Meal our feet were in the water. The food that followed... More

It was a night to remember. This was my second time to dine in here and I will never get tired of going back to experience the food and the service all over again. It was a surprise dinner for my significant other and true enough he was mesmerized with the place and then came the food and the outstanding... More

The charm of this ocean side restaurant with many dining tables set on the beach and nearly all with water views of the quiet surf lapping the shoreline is delightful. Your timing may include a beautiful sunset and afterwards as the sun is set the lights on the water will lure the flying fish to skim along the water at... More

Long before we arrived in Aruba, our daughter made a reservation for us to dine in this lovely place. We arrived at 5 p.m. when the restaurant opened and were seated nearly in the water at the beach. We wanted to be here for the sunset. I was amazed, the waiters were all barefoot and the sandy beach was the... More

We found this restaurant to be a complete waste of a vacation dinner. First, the restaurant is located on the opposite end of the island from the hotels. It's generally a 40 minute cab ride from the hotels and around $60 round trip. That wouldn't be noteworthy if it was a positive experience, but it was not. We were ushered... More

Awesome experience with a magnificent romantic atmosphere. We did not have a reservation but they still have us one of the best tables they had near the water. The seafood pasta was not my very good but they sure made up for it in the surf and turf. The staff was excellent especially our waitress was great. Pricey but who... More

We were seated as the sun started to set and the view was amazing. The beach, the water, the ambiance...just what you want in a Caribbean setting for dinner. Impeccable service, excellent food.
