You have to book. We did on a Saturday and there was a queue of people who hadn't waiting mournfully in line. Big meals, big starters. My wifes small and had the Cerviche fish dish for starters and it was enough for two. The staff did not rush us, but I felt the prescence of the queue trying to hurry... More

Make reservations when u book your trip not when you get to aruba. Small place.. Fabulous food. Sangria $29 carafe - almost half price of some competitors. Ok atmosphere but no view. Food makes up for that! Had fish special. Delish..and gotta love the plantains!

This was an interesting place with fresh, fresh fish on the menu. Our absolutely charming server proudly told us the chef/ owner was also the fisherman. We had reservations but there were people willing to wait for a table. We drove by the next evening, it was still very busy. I'd go back tomorrow if I could.

This restaurant is all about the beach. I can't even imagine why anyone would post a picture of soup! If you can locate the parking lot (Just ask around) you get to park for free all day by just ordering A few drinks. Then you can spend your day soaking up the sun, sand and ocean. We weren't hungry so... More
