We went on To Tuesday but I had been craving a fajita salad so I got that instead. My fiancé got the tacos and they were PHENOMENAL. My fajita taco salad was disgusting, it was like they forgot to season anything. Because the peppers and onions were cooked on a metal skillet they had a metal taste... read more

The food here was sub-par, the wait was way longer than estimated by the host, it was hot and stuffy, and the service was lacking. The light and water show was interesting, but you don't have to eat here to see that. Not our favorite meal in Aruba.

We had to wait over one hour for a table. When we were finally seated we felt ignored. The server finally came and took our order but that was the last we saw of him. The food was terrible...Old El Paso from a can would have been better. Then to add insult to injury we had to flag down someone... More

I really loved the beef enchiladas. We had a table overlooking the center court of the outdoor mall. They do a dancing waters light show there at around 9pm so get there earlier, get a table by the rail and enjoy it all. No doubt you will.

My husband and I recently had dinner here and though it looks great, the service is good and we had great seats overlooking a show in the evening the food was just okay. I had the Chile Relleno and found it to be odd. It was done with a bell pepper (which the menu said...but thought maybe it would be... More

Fun place for dinner, good location with attentive staff. Ribs are very good. Jamaican jerk chicken was very good, cooked perfectly and loaded with flavors. Very busy location but not slow for food or service. One of the places to revisit in Aruba.

This restaurant is a fun place to dine. Ask to sit near the rail so you can people watch in the outdoor below. Good solid Mexican food and drink.
