We had a great meal. Four of us and each had a different entrees. We all loved them. The grouper cheese is to die for. The courtyard is a great open air atmosphere. Cute gift shop to boot. We'll be back. One of our favorites on the island.

This year we had a group of 8 and overall the food and service were very good. Starting with appetizers the Ahi Tuna tartar & goat cheese salad were both a hit. For entrees, the grouper cheese, and sesame crusted tuna, were extremely fresh, perfectly prepared and tasty. Also enjoyed were the mixed grill that was much better than years... More

This use to be my favorite restaurant in Aruba, but unfortunately we won't be going back. Three of us had dinner. We ordered a drink and mine was wrong. That is when the trouble began. The waitress was very rude. We ordered dinner and a bottle of wine. We received our dinners but no wine. When my husband asked when... More

Grouper cheese was excellent in texture, presentation and taste balanced by an apple and blue cheese salad. The outdoor atmosphere was charming and quiet (no loud blaring music). The hostess and waitresses too were charming and attentive. Chef's Tables is a little out of the way, but if you enjoy good food in an amiable surroundings - GO.

We visit Aruba 3 times a year and make it a point to eat at Chefs table at least once a week. The food is always excellent and the wait staff are always friendly, courteous and professional. We love the cheese crusted grouper and the apple blue cheese salad. I personally love the tenderloin with truffle sauce and shrimp tempura.... More

We've been regular customers since they opened up and have many favorites here. We love the Shrimp tempura, the carpaccio and the grouper. Always great to see the owner and staff. It always a...

The food is absoulutely superb, and the atmosphere is so inviting, wherever you sit (and there are many rooms from which to choose). The staff at Chef's Table are always professional and courteous, and strive to make your dinner a... More

We dined at Chef's Table about two years ago and in thinking back, it was an OK meal. Back in Aruba for two weeks, we decided to try it again. What a surprise. Like deja vu, we were greeted by Marion and immediately seated. My wife and I shared a goat cheese salad but we were also curious about their... More
