This restaurant is in the Renaissance Hotel downtown. You really need a reservation for the time and table you want. The steak is great (US Angus Filets, Rib-eyes, etc.) and the fish is fresh from the local waters. Have had at least 15 superb dinners here. Their famous dessert with the dark chocolate and marscopone is outstanding!

We were here years ago and it pretty darn good. This year it was even better. They corrected quality and timing issues. They delivered a really fine dining experience. Not a good place for kids because the adults want it quiet and classy. The steaks (Ribeye, Filet) we perfectly cooked and perfectly portioned. The sides were just right. The deserts... More

I've been a couple of times to this iconic steak house and restaurant both for lunch and dinner service. The best asset is the view on the Oranjestad harbor, with it's charming boulevard, and views onto the cruise ships entering and leaving. I've always considered it a high standard place for dinging. Once in a blue moon they organize a... More

Much more than steak available here! Don't miss out on a meal here by not making a reservation. We honestly felt that we could have eaten here every night of our vacation.

When walking into this restaurant you get a real steakhouse feel. It's cozy and inviting. I had an excellent beefsteak tomato salad. One of the best I've ever had. The sirloin I had was a little tough and I was unable to finish it. Loved the service. Great sunset with cruise ships that can be seen from the window. Definitely... More

Considering the mall and Renaissance hotel in this galleria setting, we expected more from a "top notch" steak house (even if we consider our Aruban setting). We didn't see a dress code listed anywhere, and were wearing fairly decent island or golf attire, but were treated by the staff as if we came in wearing ripped t-shirts from Metallica's Ride...
