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!

We stopped in here since it was close to our hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and reasonably priced, great service from Amaury. Highly recommend.

We had a nice dinner. Eisa was our server. She was very attentive and friendly. There were plenty of choices on the dinner menu including fresh local seafood. We plan to eat here again on our next visit to Aruba.

What a cool restaurant. We ate inside, but the outside tables looked nice as well. My husband had the fish on special and I had the red snapper. Both were excellent. The portions were very big. Out waitress was new, but very good. Would definitely return.
