Great restaurant, and there are options for vegetarians. Our waitress was friendly and the setting on the porch was beautiful.

Absolutely one of the best settings for a dinner in Aruba. Sitting on an outdoor veranda overlooking the golf course, lighthouse and the ocean is breathtaking. Add in food that is perfect and you have an absolute can't miss restaurant. Service is spectacular as well! Just an all-around perfect night and dinner! Don't miss this place!

A large group of us went two weeks ago to celebrate a family occasion. The place is lovely, very nice views. But one does not come to a "fancy" restaurant for the view.
