Unexpectedly wonderful food

The small non-descript hotel across from Eagle Beach has as little outdoor restaurant that serves up local and Dutch inspired food. Absolutely wonderful and reasonably priced.

We have been coming to Aruba for 12 years and always eat at the Tulip. It is a small restaurant with covered outdoor seating. This service is excellent with a very friendly staff. This year they added Chateau Briand to the menu and we liked it so much that we returned a second time to have it again. It serves... More

The Tulip is a decent restaurant serving good food at reasonable prices. Last year I was placed on suicide watch because they deleted my favorite meal, to wit, the lasagna which was very good. I tried the chicken in peanut sauce and that wasn't good. Chicken too dry. After that disappointing meal I decided not to return for round 2.... More

Located in the front garden of a cozy little hotel across the street from the beach Tulip is up there with the big boys when it comes to preparing and serving grouper. Service is efficient and helpful in accommodating small deviations from the menu. Décor is simple but gives you a nice feel of "coastal living". Being off the main... More

We were hoping for more from this place but the food was only average. Also, the prices were more mid range than the guide book suggested so we felt like paid a lot for food that was just OK. My husband got a seafood meal of some kind that was all very overcooked and rubbery. Although the atmosphere was nice... More

friendly waiter/host but that's it. Slow service (actually it's very slow all over the island), very bland food, terrible bathrooms.. Very limited menu. To start, we asked for water for everyone, they brought one glass for one person. A couple of us wanted the dutch pancake, but it was just after their breakfast time and the one person that makes...

The food was delicious, server was friendly and attentive, good prices too. Its a small restaurant, easy to drive right by, but worth a stop, not noisy and crowded like a lot of other places.

Ate here in 2014 and food was wonderful! Returned this year and food was marginal at best. Keshi yena had bones or gristle in it. Chicken-like substance was skimpy and greasy. Staff is very friendly, but we will not return next year.

We had dinner twice while we were in Aruba. Food was okay, nothing spectacular since we can't even remember what we ate. Food was inconsistent. I think food quality depends on who is un the kitchen.
