very nice quiet atmosphere with above average food

the place is on the beach, but laid out on a very nice wood deck. very romantic atmosphere ideal for couples. service was great. the food was good but not spectacular. it seemed to me like the chef wanted to overdo it and just didn't get it right. in any case,overall, a very nice experience.

Elements located at the Bucuti Hotel offers a great view of the beach and gorgeous sunset. We ate there 2 times on our recent trip to Aruba and thought that the food was very good. We had Christian as our server for both nights and he was professional and attentive. The menu offered a good range of options and we... More

We arrived after sundown therefore cannot comment on the view of the beach from the deck where we were seated. The iPad menu is a nice concept but it takes much longer to review the listed items and to make food selections. The buffet was not entirely satisfactory for the member of our party who chose it. The soup was... More

We were there too early last year to enjoy Elements, but we were glad it was open on our visit this year. The dinner was great and the view from the deck amazing. We would put it up there with any of the other restaurants that we have tried on the island. The lunch was also fabulous. We try to... More

If you want to experience a relaxing and beautiful sunset, have dinner or drinks at Elements in the Bucuti & Tara Resort. Wait staff was very attentive and accommodating, we sat in one of the covered couches on the beach and had amazing drinks and appetizers. Definitely a great place to visit.

We had great expectations going to the restaurant, given it is at the beautiful Bucuti and Tara resort in Eagle Beach. The decor and atmosphere of the restaurant were quite lovely, which included lights around the palm trees, private dining cabanas with white drapery, giant vases illuminated on deck on beach, accented with a modern IPad tablets used as the...

We ate here the first night of our honeymoon. We got the three course prix fixe dinners- good value. The risotto was good and the steak was delicious. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. We will be returning the next time we're in Aruba.

Brilliant food, but we were given tablets (Ipads) containing the menu. Most of our group thought that we were ordering our meal from the tablet, and were were very suprised when the waiter came around for our order. Suggestion to Elements ...get rid of the tablets. Great food though and lovely staff.

We stayed at Bucuti and Tara, and had one dinner meal at Elements because we wanted to try out other places on the island as well. As is true with Bucuti, the service was second to NONE, and the setting is gorgeous. Palm trees strung with lights and the ocean in front of you. We were treated to a spectacular... More
