The best food, especially, steak in Oranjestad. The setting is so homey and brings you back to the olden days and the staff is superb! The food is so great and the steak melts in your mouth like butter! They even serenaded the guests accordingly and for us - the gentleman sang "Amor" since we are celebrating our 30th wedding...

My husband and I ate here and really enjoyed our meal and the service. We shared a Caesar salad and then each had a steak dinner. I love that you get to choose 3 sides with your meal so you can really sample what they have. The bread they bring our prior to dinner and the dipping sauces are excellent.... More

We had a wonderful meal here. The service was top notch, the food terrific and they were very accommodating to my teen and youngster's food preferences. Definitely would make this a priority restaurant on any return visits to Aruba.

We were told it was the premier steakhouse in Aruba and it lived up to the billing. Prices were similar to those you would find in a good steakhouse in the U.S. Service was attentive. We did not have a reservation so had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. Near downtown.

We were 9 people and everyone loved their dinner! But the best part was my granddaughter 's face when the little band sang "let it go" (frozen movie) It was a great time for all! Young and old! The meat and seafood was delicious! Service was excellent! you have got to go when in Aruba!!!!

It was my wife and I's 2nd time here and it was just as good as the first time. The place itself isn't that fancy, but we don't come here for the ambiance. We come here because I'm a steak eater and they know how to cook steak. We had the wedge salad for an appetizer which was very good.... More
