We had lunch here on 2 different days because the food quality and service were very good. Prices were reasonable and the food was very good. Definitely stop here for lunch.

I ate at the Plaza several times now, but i can't say im impressed with the food. Its nice for a quick lunch orso but not for a fancy dinner. To me its more like a bar which serves food also then a real restaurant. Also the waiters arent good. They are rude and when u make a comment about... More

The service here was not very good. We never got our appetizer. Server did not even know what the specials were. Fod was average. Nothing special for the price.

Stopped in for breakfast -- once. One of two places we've experienced that screw up eggs -- coffee wasn't much better. Had to go into the cafe to get coffee refill, sugar and cream, and salt and pepper. Staff seemed up out that we'd ask for such. Maybe World Cup soccer had them distracted.

My sister and I had breakfast here one time during our May vacation. I had the scrambled eggs/bacon/toast and fruit that was the special of the morning. There is no service charge at this restaurant added to the check, so the price was a reasonable $8, about what I would pay in the US. The portion was large and more... More

Stopped for lunch. Sat outside under the canopy. The first choice made the waiter said the store was closed yesterday so they were out. No worries, I asked him what he recommended and he suggested the Caesar salad wrap. Which indeed was quite tasty. Not sure if I would stop by for dinner.

This place is a good option for a cheap meal. The food, what is available, is good. The service is hit or miss. We have eaten here for breakfast and lunch. They are out of several items on the menu and blame the kings birthday. You'd think they'd know to order enough to make it through closures.

We ate Breakfast here and it was great. We got the American Breakfast. It had three eggs, three pancakes, two hash browns, three sausages, and three pieces of bacon all for only 9.00 dollars. The prices at this place are reasonable and the food is good.

We ate here our first night in Aruba. We had the "chicken satay with peanut sauce". It was the best I had ever had. We were there in February and setting out on the patio eating was wonderful. The service was excellent and they really wanted to please their customers. We enjoyed it so much that we ended up eating... More
