We had the pleasure of eating at this fine restaurant, not once but twice on our recent trip to Aruba. Without a doubt, it was the best meals we had on the island. An absolute must is the tuna tartar appetizer. The grouper in white wine with shrimps was heavenly! A real gem!

Outstanding service and food at fair prices. You can dine inside or out on their beautiful courtyard. Try their Gouda cheese grouper, you won't be sorry!

On our most recent trip to Aruba we returned to Chef's table because of the wonderful experience we had last year. Our meal was just as good as we remembered. In fact, we were so impressed we returned 5 days later with 4 new people joining us. Each dish was prepared to order and served by the chef. The food... More

We have been coming here for a number of years and could always expect a great meal. That is no longer the case. Should have suspected an issue when the online reservation system didn't work and didn't receive responses to email requests. We walk in and the inside room is completely empty while two tables are occupied outside. OK, slow... More

Do not go here if you want to get in and out quickly. But do go for a relaxing evening and make a night of enjoying the wonderful food at a leisurely pace, We had a reservation. The hostess was also our bartender and waitress as she was for every other table. I think it was just her and the... More

We always enjoy our meal at Chef's Table but this year was outstanding. I am never sure what it is always empty when we go - I am told on season it is always packed- I hesitate to tell others because I would not want to miss out - they have an awesome back terrace area that is so so... More

This is our tenth year in Aruba and each time we go back to Chefs table. This time we were overwhelmed with the beauty, freshness and quality of the food presented. So much so we went back for a second visit later in the week and again were blown away. The tuna tartar and beef carpaccio were eye candy and... More

We ate in the courtyard under the moon and stars! A beautiful, romantic dinner for two. He had the sirloin, I had the tuna. Delish! Dessert sampler was amazing and wine pairings excellent! Yost was a wonderful server and provided a wealth of information. We'll definitely go again!

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
