Great meal in Aruba

This was one of my best meals in Aruba. My wife and I loved it here. I forget the name of the dish but they make pasta in a wheel of cheese which is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! So recommend this dish, we had it as an appetizer.

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and loved the food. But that was not the case thus visit. Our food was barely warm at best. The spaghetti noodles were actually hard and crunchy in places. I think the spaghetti had been sitting out so long that the dish had dried out. I ordered veal with... More

The service was excellent as was the food. The staff was friendly as well as very accommodating. We didn't have a reservation but we're able to get a table without much of a wait. We were served quickly and would definitely have dinner there on our next visit to Aruba!

We go there every year so my husband and I can get the pasta made in the cheese wheel. And again this year it was amazing! So we said lets go back one more time this trip to try something else on the menu. So happy we did. Our dishes were perfect! The only complaint I would ever say is... More

We dined here on in 4/3 with a party of 9-4 of which were kids-everyone loves their food! Steak was cooked perfectly as were each of the pasta dishes. Service was great as well. It is expensive but so are most places on the island. Difference is this place was worth every penny!

The staff were dressed nicely and professional while being friendly and helpful. Seating was not crowded and divided in a few different rooms. They provided a good wine menu and a very full dinner menu. We had the Caprese salad, white beans and pasta soup, lemon veal and pasta. All were well balanced in flavor and generous portions. There was... More
