Good drinks

We stopped here for drinks...they have a good menu for various tropical drinks. I had the Yellow Bird, made with rum, vodka, banana liquor, and pineapple juice...delicious! Bartender was friendly and quite helpful.

We visited Tulip for a family dinner for six people. We were greeted warmly by our server, Kevin. The food was terrific. Everthing was prepared with the freshest ingredients. The drinks were tasty. The service was timely and efficient. It was a wonderful evening out. I would recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit again on our next visit to... More

I ordered the grouper special when I was in Aruba last month. The fish melted in my mouth and was delicious. The shrimp served on top of the fish was tender and not over-cooked. The garlic butter sauce was seasoned but not over-powering. Prices were moderate and a good value for the quality of the food.

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 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.

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
