In Aruba, our second week. Last week brought our niece and great niece to one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate her 16th birthday. When a 16 yr old tells you her dinner was excellent,you know it was. Returned this week with my brother and his girlfriend. As usual, Martin and his staff were warm and welcoming. The food was...

Good location near Eagle Beach but prices were a little on the higher end. Have dinner and a walk on the beach.

I highly recommend this restaurant. The setting is great and the food and service match the setting. We had peanut soup, filet mignon and the mixed grill and we enjoyed everything about the meal. Thanks for a special dinner.

We've been coming to Aruba once a year for 15 years and have dined in a number of very good restaurants. We're adding Carambola to our "go to" list after trying on this trip. Although not on the beach, nice ambience, great service and excellent food. Service was attentive, cordial and at the right pace. When you dine you want... More

Superb restaurant on Eagle Beach in Aruba! My wife and I had the special which was fillet and lobster with soup or salad and a glass of sangria for $35 per person! Dinner was excellent. Service was first class (5 star) and there was live piano music to accompany the dining experience. This was recommended to us and we'll also... More

Excellent starters followed by and incredible Marin course,we were so full there was no room for a desert.The Mahi Mahi... More

Sunday night they had 80's music videos playing on the big screen - different but entertaining. Grouper and pasta entrees very good but service is slow. Employees nice. On the way out after we finished I politely told mgr we appreciate that we're on vacation but do not like to wait a long time for food. He politely responded to... More

We come to Aruba twice a year and always go to carambola. We always order the whole red snapper, it's amazing! Plenty for two to share. The goat cheese salad was terrific as well, two generous size fried goat cheese more than two of us could eat but I would have liked a little more salad. My grown son ordered... More

Lots of ambiance here. The dining room is accented with tropical orange napkins and accents against white linen tablecloths. Candlelight glows from every table. The wait staff is courteous and the food is excellent. The mango panna cotta was delicious for dessert. I wanted more and more, but after a sumptuous meal, one was enough. I have frequented this restaurant... More

It was our 24th wedding anniversary and we wanted a restaurant away from our Marriott timeshare. Carambola was perfect. I had the boulibasse, my husband had the sashemi tuna. Both were great. Although the restaurant is off the water, it still has a lovely ambiance. The service was perfectly slow. We would recommend it to any fussy eater!
