Chaotic but fun

We came here for happy hour and then dinner. It was Friday night and the place was hopping. It was so busy, people everywhere, loud music, crazy. We got a beers and a glass of wine for a good price. They had some sort of free food set out but we didn't try it. When we were ready to sit... read more

I've been to Aruba many times and have never been disappointed. The service, the atmosphere, the food, the music. All are a terrific. I can't rave enough about the charred salmon. The music is always good. Live bands all conducive to dancing. I just really like Aruba and reccomend to all

This was our first time going to this restaurant. We went on a Saturday nite, so we couldn't see the beach, but it is literally right on the beach. They have live music, a varied menu, and quality food at a reasonable price. The house manager, Don, made us feel right at home and our wait person Toya was really... More

We stopped here to enjoy drinks and check out the area. This place has a smaller outside eating area and the beach view from there was not the best unless you had the perfect table. We were happy we decided to go inside. The place was busy so we found a seat at the bar as we just wanted drinks.... More

This is the beach and the place to be. Great area and staff. Very consistent program and staff management. Would receive excellent rating if not for times where establishment were not over crowded at times.

This place is wonderful! There was a fun atmosphere, live music, friendly staff, good food, and a GREAT view! We visited this place twice during our one week stay because we liked it so much. There are also several places to walk around in the neat complex it is located in.

I've been there 3 times this month. Happy Hour Friday's......Free pig roast with the purchase of a drink. It is basically pork on rice with gravy (optional), but good. if you want a place at one of the three bars, you better get there by 4:30. Lunch.....I had a great strawberry fields salad with chicken. My friend also loved her... More
