Good food great staff

Staff was friendly, food was good. You get a lot for your money here. The place is dated and food is kind of like a red lobster but my husband loved it. I thought it was good and our server Adolfo was one of the best we had our whole trip.

The Promenade has changed its entire menu to a more upscale dining, if you have ever been here any time before 2015 then you know how the food was, the portions have really cut down and the prices up. The quality is still good, but it was a disappointment to wait a year and not want to go back. The... More

The Promenade was recommended by a taxi driver as we were looking for a good authentic Aruban restaurant. We did not know that the establishment recently changed ownership and totally redid the menu. The food was not only not local Aruban cuisine, it was also poorly cooked. My wife's Mahi-Mahi was overcooked and my shrimp dish with pasta came with... More

The prices are not worth it for the quality of the food. Head over to the high-rise are instead. Much more options and better prices.

We had been to this establishment several times prior through the years. The wife and I stopped in for an early dinner. There was one other couple present when we arrived. My wife had the Grouper and I had the Scallop & Shrimp Skewer. Grouper was bland. The skewered fish was saturated with much too much basting sauce. Service was... More

We always go to the Promenade a couple of time when we are in Aruba. The food is always good and reasonably priced. However this time the service was slow. We had to ask for our water to be refilled and they forgot to deliver our soup before our dinner arrived. Ended up taking the soup home. But the dinner... More

Just drove by and stopped in.. Nice and cozy, friendly and great food!! If we had more than a week, I would have gone twice. Grouper was fresh and cooked to perfection. Wide range of choices. Very satisfied!

Had some "crazy cash" (Marriott dollars from time share presentation) to spend and this place was on the list. Glad we went! Caught the early bird special, four course meal. Everything we had was delicious and our server, Aldolfo was knowledgeable and helpful. Wasn't crowded, and the cost was very reasonable for Aruba. We'll definitely be back next year!!!!
