Great Views from this Restaurant

We just had drinks, but it's a great place to look out on the water. The bar seats face the ocean. The menu looks good, too.

We had a 6:00 reservation, which allowed us to see the amazing sunset for which this restaurant is known. The food was adequate; it was not superb, but was good. The service was great. The view at sunset was amazing!

We made a reservation for 8 people through the concierge at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. We arrived promptly at 8.30. The maitradee who was seated behind a desk could not be bothered to greet or welcome us. He said we would have to wait. Whenever I asked when we would be seated, it was as though we were annoying him.... More

We traveled up to the lighthouse just on a whim. We had no idea this restaurant was here. Sits all alone with gorgeous view of ocean W, N & E. Also, the NW coast of island. Absolutely beautiful. The food was good and prices were typical for Aruba. A must see view.

Amazing view. Food is awesome. A bit pricey but well worth it. Took family of 5 there. No reservation and got there right as they opened at 530. They took us but you really need a reservation. Go ahead and enjoy this location and the great food. You won't be sorry!

Fantastic location, beautiful views. We visited restaurant during the day, walked around taking in the views, taking pictures. We made a reservation for another night even selecting the table we wanted to sit at. We went the night before heading home. Unfortunately it was a cloudy night so the sunset wasn't as beautiful. However, it was still stunning, very romantic.... More

We were here around three in the afternoon and very thirsty. We thought we'd have a drink and enjoy the view. But we could only sit at the bar and not get a drink menu. That was too much work. Terribly rude staff. I guess they just know people come for the view so they don't have to do anything... More

First they had our reservation under another name, but ok mistakes happen. We were seated and our waiter came and took our drink order. When he returned with our wine, we placed our appetizer and diner order. That was the last we saw of him for over an hour. We asked the maitre d, what happened... With that the waiter... More
