the service was not that good this year. they are very short of staff. they do have good desserts samplers. you can choose from sundaes, to mousse, to key lime pie or apple struedel. if not for the slow service it would be a 5 star rating.

We thought we'd try Chef's table after reading some good reviews....party of four...the interior is lacking something,,looks as if the owners themselves decorated..not very diner friendly with overlapping painted walls.Tables have no cloth and were wobbly...Extremely warm and uncomfortable for any type meal..The dinner main courses,.although presented nicely were lacking taste. I had surf and turf and was pleased. The... More

Ever say to yourself that you have to leave room for dessert? Well here, you can always find room for dessert. They come in shot glass sized servings for a few bucks each. Order two or three. By the way, the main course are pretty good too. My favorite seat is by the kitchen window to watch what's going on... More

Six of us went to the Chef's Tables for dinner. We all had fabulous meals. We were seated at a table that let us see the kichen. My husband ordered a whole snapper. The chef showed him the fish through the window for approval before he cooked it. My husband loved it. One person in our party is allergic to... More

As a repeat visitor to Aruba we loved going to Chefs Table each visit. This will no longer be on our list of restaurants to go to. We were seated inside, it was more like sitting outside, there was NO a/c on and the front door was open. As anyone knows Aruba is hot and humid great for the beach... More

been here before and had an awesome meal but something's seems to have changed. The portions were smaller and had little to no flavor this time, They need to step it up. Would like to try again but will wait to see future ratings

This was our first visit. We were with friends who come here every year and love it. We arrived about 8:15, and were offered indoor or outdoor dining, but choose indoor. Our entrees were fine, but... That was when my husband thought he saw something running on the floor out of the corner of his now bulging eyes... The waitress... More

The chef is the owner and everything is made to order, if you love fresh fish then this is the place. The wait staff are very attentive and helpful, there is an open kitchen for viewing. This is our yearly visit no regrets here, enjoy

We visit Aruba every year, and during our trip, we dine at Chef's Tables at least twice. The food is absolutely amazing, and the service is beyond compare. This restaurant has the most hard working chef/owner in the business. What we most appreciate is that no request is too much trouble. Want an appetizer that you loved made into a... More

Drove up in a taxi for our 8pm reservation and the place looked closed. Entered the completely empty restaurant... I mean completely empty. No hostess, no bartender, no waiters, no customers... no nothing. As we were getting ready to leave, a rather disheveled woman appeared and offered to seat us. We opted for the garden and finally saw some signs... More
