It's hidden and is part of a very small hotel that almost looks like a motel. The restaurant is in a backyard setting but the food and service were spectacular. Everything was presented and tasted like a high end restaurant. There is an option for a 3 course meal for $30 which was a bargain. Highly recommended if you want... More

We shared a terrific mahi-mahi ceviche appetizer followed by a delicious shrimp tagliatelle. For dessert we enjoyed the profiteroles with an orange cream sauce and excellent decaf coffee. Our server was a sharp young Dutch woman. Tulip is just across the road from Eagle Beach so we could enjoy the sunset from the patio.

Visited here with my wife on the 2nd night of our honeymoon whilst in Aruba. The food was nice but not exceptional and the restaurant lacked abit of atmosphere. The staff were friendly & polite, but it was quite expensive for what we had.

The waitstaff were friendly and made you feel at home. The food was good, but it was nothing special. There are so many restaurants in Aruba, that this one just doesn't stand out. However, if you are in the area, it is a reasonable place to go

Last. Year they tried to change their menu to French. They changed it back to what it was before. Terrible last year. Excellent this year. I had a steak and my husband had lasagna. Very good. The shrimp tagliatelle was also good. My husband liked their bolonaise which is not on their menu. So they told us to call and... More

we had just arrived in Aruba and this was the closest place to go to get something to eat. The place was very quiet which resulted in excellent service. The food was good but that could have been because we were so hungry. We didn't go back as it seemed to be lacking atmosphere

We have been coming to Aruba for 11 years, and always dine at least once or twice at Tulip. This year, they changed the decor and the new colors are so lovely and inviting. The food is consistantly very good (caribbean flair and Dutch speciality) The keshi yena, a local dish with chicken, raisins and gouda is tasty, and my... More

My wife and two daughters visited the Tulip Restaurant Monday evening and had a most satisfying meal. The Chateaubriand for two was tender, tasty and cooked just right. The salmon salad appetizer came with a generous piece of salmon and crisp greens and was a complete meal for the young ladies. Service was very good and pleasant. Presentation could have... More

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the Dutch specialty. The outdoor seating was nice and our waitress was friendly. We particularly enjoyed our mojitos. The restaurant offers many varieties on a menu posted on the wall.
