Excellent service, but soooo overpriced. Food was meh. Garlic bread was great. I can't say I would go back. Dinner for 3 was $130 and we didn't have drinks.

We are return customers. We dine at this restaurant every time we are in Aruba. Love the food and atmosphere. Host and waiters are very friendly and do everything to make sure that you have a nice time at their restaurant.
