We have been to Aruba many times and always dine here. Everything about it is wonderful. View, location, food and service. The restaurant is usually much quieter than the average Aruba restaurant as many people don't know about it and it is located at the Tierra del Sol Golf Club. Worth the drive or taxi fare! Can't wait to return!

Let me start with the amazing view, you must sit outside at sunset...spectacular! We arrived at 6:30 for the early bird dinner which was exceptional. The bonus of the evening was on Tuesdays that have half off bottles of wine. Total bill for two full meals and a bottle of wine for under a hundred in Aruba is fabulous.

We just love this place and always eat here at least twice during our visits to Aruba (every spring and autumn). This is one of the best restaurants in Aruba and yet it is always half empty.

We went back to Aruba this year after more than 20 years vacationing elsewhere. We really looked forward to getting back to this restaurant that we remembered from so many years ago. The food and service were still fantastic, the wonderful live music an added bonus. It was our favorite meal of the whole vacation. Won't wait so long to... More

We never miss dinner at Ventanas del Mar when in Aruba. It's a favorite of ours. The food is always excellent and the setting and ambience can't be beat. Service is always very good, but our server this year, Fleur, was exceptional!

Hadn't been back to Ventannas del Mar for dinner in two years after a mediocre meal. Happy to say the food and service is finally as wonderful as the beautiful setting.
