Fantastic outdoor setting is only the beginning of a terrific evening. I ordered a very unusual form of chicken parm. Made with Gouda and chicken which was not breaded. Sounds boring but had a great taste. All entrees start with a great salad. Before salad we shared the best mushroom soup I ever tasted. For desert we had a bread... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by locals and the hotel concierge -- but what a disappointment. My Saffron grouper tasted like it had been sitting around and reheated more than once. I expected a lot more for the prices they charge. Though, I should note that my husband ordered the Stone cooked lobster and he was happier with his meal,... More

Restaurant has a beautiful lush setting, but everything seemed rushed and the staff was neither friendly nor attentive. As evidence, my hot stone wahoo dish had gotten over-cooked while it was waiting to be served. Its supposed to finish cooking at the table but it was burnt on arrival. I should have sent it back. Don't make the same mistake.... More

The atmosphere is really nice but the service was horrible. Our waitress was handling to many tables that she rarely came to check on us. She only came to take our order, about a few minuted after we already started eating and then once after for drinks. We had to ask another staff member for drinks everytime we needed a... More

The food and service was so good the first time we visited that we decided to go back. Food was still good, but service was nonexistent and that ruined the evening. We were told that the person who usually had our table was out sick.

Dining outside this Aruban mansion, beautiful atmosphere, food delish, and great sax music throughout the evening. Perfect.

Try to come her at least every other year. Sat by the pool, listened to live music,and enjoyed the mushroom soup and the seafood champagne casserole. My wife had the land and sea. Both outstanding. Topped it off with a cup of Aruban coffee. Relaxing and un-rushed. Wait staff was prompt but a bit disorganized.

We returned to this restaurant because of a great experience there a couple of years ago. We loved it then, we were disappointed this time. Service was very, very slow. Food took a long time to arrive (we got our salad about an hour after we arrived). I ordered grouper with shrimp and scallops. The shrimp were undercooked, and the... More

Outdoor setting. Service was fantastic. They took us over to the wine cellar to help is pick out a wine. Their recommendations were spot on to our tastes. The food was pretty good. The appetizers were very good. My steak dish was served on a hot stone so it comes out sizzling and still cooking. I feel like it way... More

Not a cookie cutter place. It has it's own flavor. The tables are arranged around a beautiful pool, music was nice background food great as always. Ive been there before and would go back whenever I am in Aruba
