Food was alright but the service left something to be desired. Prices were a bit high for the quality. Didn't get a good vibe here which was disappointing since the place looked cool and was well reviewed. Oh well.

Recommended to us by friends on Aruba.com we made a point of getting to this restaurant for their parmesean crusted grouper. It was so delicious. If you like profiteroles you will be amazed at their giant profiteroles filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with chocolate sauce. Staff seem genuinely happy working here and it reflects in the service.

One of the best meals I've ever had in Aruba. My friends visit often and completely agree. It's not a fancy place and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. We went on a Wednesday because that was Grooper Night. They serve it several ways. My friends and I all had the Dutch Grooper and we all LOVED it. It was... More

We did this in place of Thanksgiving dinner and we were very happy that we did! They have an all-you-can-eat rib special on Thursday nights with 3 different types of sauces (hot, honey and bbq). They also come with fries, salad and cole slaw. They bring out two full slabs per person just to start, and that is like 2... More

We went early with no reservation and were seated with no wait. Our waitresses were attentive. The food is reasonably priced and delicious! Drinks from the bar were tasty. We went on grouper night but ordered the Parmesan grouper from the regular menu. It was cooked to perfection with a cheesy crust. It was served with a salad and sauteed... More

We went there for the Thursday night rib special. All you can eat, for about $20.00. That is a steal for dinner in Aruba. I also had a Hot Dog soup-had pickles in it. And was really good. The ribs were served with fries and slaw. Neither of us finished half the first plate-2 huge racks of ribs. Ribs were... More

This restaurant is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the high rises on Palm Beach. The food is good but not spectacular. I had the mahi mahi which was good but could not compare to some other restaurants in flavor. My husband had the seafood pasta dish which he kept putting pepper on it to give it more... More
