Best food we had on the island

Amuse Bistro is an outside cafe in front of Playa Linda. It was windy, but so is the whole island. I saw the Duck Confit and Goose Liver Ravioli in the Menu Magazine and decided to go. The owner spoke to us for quite a while - completely charming. Amanda, our server, was friendly and... read more

The first night my family and I spent in Aruba we did not know where to go for dinner, there was so many restaurants to choose from! When we were walking around the area, a nice middle-old man came up to us and pointed us to Amuse Bistro and said to go there for dinner (he probably worked there), he... More

Amuse is centrally located, filled with friendly servers and definitely offers Aruba's rare version of a bistro. What it suffers from, as do many restaurants in the area, is a price point that doesn't reflect the reality of the food. Dishes lack inventiveness or even just maximizing local flavors (e.g., don't over-mayo the lobster salad like a deli counter, just... More

During our stay in Aruba, we ate there twice. We found that Amuse bistro had the best value for money. This restaurant has a european spirit that you don't find in most of the restaurants on Palm Beach. The meals are yummy and (once again) of european sizes. We ate very well both times. The staff is very nice and... More

This year we decided to try the Amuse Bistro located in the Playa Linda Resort. It is an outside restaurant located next to the entrance to the resort . We began our meal enjoying our orders of escargots. Our entrees followed, mine was lamb chops which were perfectly prepared and succulent. My fiancée chose the pork loin which found to... More

I've been remiss in not posting my review of this wonderful little bistro sooner. We dined there on our Aruba vacation in July. It was a delightful evening from beginning to end. The service was friendly and efficient (as some time has passed, I'm pretty sure our waiter was a wonderful young man by the name of Brian-we nicknamed him... More

The salad with goat cheese was amazing. All of the dishes had a beautiful presentation and were cooked to perfection. Friendly service.

We had read on Trip Advisor that this restaurant was a good bet and therefore decided to try it out. I had the pre-fixe three course menu which included soup, a main course and dessert, as well as a glass of wine. The best part of the whole meal was the soup which was an onion cream-based soup and absolutely... More
