good place for a good price

we recently visited this restaurant and were truly impressed. We decided to try their early bird. First off the retaurant is very pretty on the inside. It is situated between the La Cabana resort and another I can't recall. The early bird was delicious. We all enjoyed our appetizers. Two had soups... read more

Visited with a group of friends for a special, pre-wedding meal. Staff took great care of our group and made good recommendations to the menu. Price was a little higher than I would pay for a meal in the states, but thoroughly enjoyed our night together.

I asked for a separate plate , so my mother can try my entry. The waitress , said it will cost $5. I told her never mind (in a polite way), she said," that's what the manager charge and I just work here." I politely told her I understand and its not a big deal. I can just let my... More

This is our second time within a year dining at Carambola. Both times we left raving about the food. During my first visit, I had the seafood bouillabaisse and it was amazing. This time, I tried the seafood pasta and it was also fabulous. They have an enclosed outdoor dining area but both times we ate inside because of the... More

We went there for Mother's Day and they had a fixed price menu; appetizer, entree and dessert for $27.00. The service was a little slow and it took us a while to get through the meal. but it was Mother's Day and the restaurant was crowded. The food was good as was the atmosphere. We were sitting in an outside... More

This restaurant is one of the best. I love the colors of the dining room. The black ravioli was to die for!!!!! I have never tasted a sauce so rich and full of flavor. The Keshia Yana which I probably misspelled and/or misnamed was so awesome I cannot even begin to explain. I think it will be my favorite Aruba... More

I truly enjoyed my stay in Aruba thanks largely in part to the amazing cuisine. I had been to Carambola almost everyday (5 out of 7) since I had been there because I loved the food, service, and ambiance. The appetizers were very filling. I had salads, calamari, and Keshi Yena and I was hooked. The Keshi Yena is so... More

The beef soup and three C's chowder were very good, and the salads were fresh and flavorful. The main course was where everything went downhill. The tenderloin was ordered medium rare and came out very rare. The red snapper was covered in a tasteless remoulade that seemed to have come from a can. The mashed potatoes were made from some...

Selected this restaurant based on a nice menu and a desire to try somewhere new. Rumor was that the owner (Marten) fired two kitchen staff (or they walked and I couldn't blame them); it was a busy night. The waiters tried there best to keep ahead of the demand but there were issues.I told Marten we waited an hour for... More
