Situated in the low rise area next to paradise beach villas. Opened in late 2013. Something on the Menu to suit everyone and not as expensive as some restaurants. On our list for next year

Peanut soup appetizer is a must.

Music and videos of the '60s was playing and brought back memories! All in... More

Ate at Carambola last night. Like others we are trying to find new places. We focused on the local dishes like the peanut soup and the Keshi Yena. Main course for me was Red Snapper and wife had a shrimp dish. Other table had wonderful looking pasta dishes. Our main course tasted average but the appetizers and service and atmosphere... More

Our first trip to Aruba included many delicious meals including a few on the beach. By far the best meal we had though was in a small but exquisite restaurant a few steps from Eagle Beach. The Carambola was a pleasant surprise during our trip. The fresh seafood and chef creations were magnificent and our server Amaury did an excellent... More

Located in the Paradise Hotel. Top quality service, excellent food at average prices for Aruba. Easy to find between LaCabana & the Tropicana Casino Hotel.

This was our third visit to Carambola in the past three years and the overall experience was quite disappointing. Service was slow, prompting an apology from the manager. Bus staff offered us dessert menus prior to the main course. Wait staff did not check in during the meal. All of this is unacceptable for a meal that costs $100 for... More

We have been coming to Aruba for 10 years. This year we decided to try restaurants we have never been to. Last night we dined at Carambola. We were promptly greeted by owner Martin. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dining. And, it's beautiful! Our waitress, Jenny, was delightful! The food was excellent! I had a citrus glazed salmon... More

We have 45 yrs. of experience in Aruba. Honeymooned in 1970, so we know this island. Carambola is a must stop and most times more than once on any given visit. Martin, the owner, and his family are the most welcoming folks we have known over the years. This place is so pretty and everyone goes out of their way... More
