Ate here twice during our stay - once on the beach other time we ate inside. Both very good experiences - food and friendly waitress / service. Sunday night very lively in that it appears to be DJ night which attracts tourists and locals.

This was the first place we ate when arriving on the island. The food was undeniably tasty, but expensive, even by island standards. Even though the restaurant was not crowded we felt left alone by our server many times during our meal. And when I say, expensive, I ordered fajtas,which were more expensive than here in the states, but they... More

We were regulars at Moomba's - for lunch and for both happy hours (6-7 and 10-11: different drink specials are available for each one). You have to try the Seafood Salad for lunch - absolutely delicious! Also, the raspberry coladas (6-7 Happy Hour) are wonderful!

We ate at several outdoor restaurants on the beach during our week in Aruba but the flies were the worst here. Never had the problem we had here at other places. Everyone was swatting while eating. Our waitress said "Oh, they will go away once the sun goes down" and she was right except by then we had finished our... More

During our cruise we had a very long day in Aruba. We chose the Moomba Beach Bar to spend a day of sun, surf and memories. The Beach Bar had good drinks at a reasonable price. The lunch was delicious and there was lots to do from jumping on a pirate ship for a cruise, flying on water jet boots... More

We spent a few afternoons watching the World Cup and enjoying the ambiance at the Moomba Beach Bar. Staff is very friendly and the location is amazing right on the beach. They had lots of screens for the WK and it was awesome to see Holland beat Mexico! Food is simple pub grub, nothing fancy but good and decent prices.... More

We found Moomba on the first night in Aruba, we stayed next door at the Holiday Inn. This is the best bar on the island and maybe on earth! We loved the bartenders -- Matt, Papi, Roy and especially Ferry!! They were like family by the end of the week. We hope to stay in touch! Food is great, drinks... More

Went here after our wedding and had a great time. Food was excellent and at a great price. Staff even gave us champagne for a toast.
