3 bars in the restaurant, good seafood and wonderful ocean view! Loved that you could just walk right out onto the beach. I wish they had better selection of t-shirts & some kind of souvenirs to purchase. Husband said the oysters were very good.

I'm always hesitant to write a negative review based on my servers lack of customer service so I decided on three stars instead of two because the food was still edible.

Visited the Aruba Beach Café for the first time this past Tuesday night with my wife along with my brother and his wife. We all had a great time sitting outside and listening to the music. The food was excellent, but the service we received from Antonella was exceptional. We will definitely be back and will ask for Antonella.
