The menu is one of the most varied in aruba. I strongly reccomend the mixed fish withpasta @ creamy garlic sauce. On both nights the service was friendly @... More

Of all the restaurants where we ate in Aruba, Carambola had the best service. The ambiance is warm and inviting, and the food is delicious. My salmon and my husband's grouper were beautifully presented and a real treat for the palate. The servers were extremely attentive and more than happy to explain menu items and make you feel welcome in... More

We were travelling with my father-in-law who is in a wheelchair due to breathing issues when walking. We stayed at Tropicana which 1/2 block from Carambola. While I did not see this restaurant when searching before we went to Aruba I thought we would give it a try as it was close. We loved everything about this restaurant. Food was... More

Carambola was a real treat for my wife and I as it was conveniently located at Paradise Beach Villas where we were staying. We left our kids in the condo while we had a quiet, pleasurable meal. We were waited on wonderfully by two men both named Eduardo. We enjoyed the early bird, which provided me with an appetizer of... More

I am a timeshare owner at Paradise Beach Villas, where the restaurant is. The ambiance is lovely and the employees are charming and helpful. They have a terrific early bird special which is a great value, from 5:30 - 7:00 pm. However, their regular meals are also very good, tasty and plentiful. I am a fish eater and the fish... More

This has been our fourth year in a row that we have returned to this great restaurant. All of our meals have been consistently good and not over priced. The quality service begins when you are greeted at the door--See you next year!

The food was good, the price/quality ratio was good, staff was friendly, helpful and even funny. They had 70's music playing when we were there (don't know if they always do). We happen to like that so we didn't mind at all :)

From being seated, to getting our water, drinks, food, it was all class A !!! We enjoyed everyone that worked there. We decided to eat here for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner and... More
