Not a Typical Aruba Restaurant

We have been come to Aruba a number of times and tend to go to many of the same restaurants over and over again. We decided to try White Modern Cuisine at the suggestion of the concierge at our hotel. We were not disappointed. We were seated upon arrival and greeted by the manager who wanted us to... read more

If you are looking for the highest standard of eclectic, creative and delicious cuisine - look no further than White Modern in Aruba. The dishes were unbelievable with explosions of taste and smell - imagine an appetizer of beautifully roasted duck breast served with a fruit compote and peanut butter powder and gently rolled cucumber and garnished with a rice...

Truly a great experience! Starting off with unique and delicious drinks made by mixologist Roger, who also took the time to explain and demonstrate how he made them. Our waiter Dawryn did an excellent job on making us feel special as we were celebrating our 10th anniversary, and his recommendations were on point. The food is truly exquisite and the... More

We made reservations at White modern after recommendation from the Ritz Carlton. The location is in the Palm Beach mall, but don't let that fool you ! The entire dining experience was five star. From our server Dawryn, the talented mixologist, and chef who pairs fantastic flavor with creativity and presentation. We may have to take a second trip there... More

I have driven by this restaurant dozens of times on our way back and forth to the Ritz Carlton, where we have stayed 3 times over the past year. I had been meaning to try this restaurant - but never got around to it as we have our usual favorites that we have to fit in during our vacation.. and... More

I had read that the White Modern Restaurant was like a 5 star restaurant in New York. But my husband and I were in Aruba.......My socks were knocked right off my sandaled feet! The restaurant was simple and elegant. The server was wonderful and the food was so outstanding.......I was at a loss for words. I drank two cosmos and... More

The restaurant is located on the second floor of a mall. It's an odd location but a very nice restaurant. It has very limited seating so if you want to go you need to make reservations fairly well in advance. The cocktails were terrific. You are very unusual, and all very good. I had the Seabass for dinner. It was... More

My husband choose this restaurant from a list he found of the top ten in Aruba. You have to remember you are on island time at all the restaurants so waiting is the rule not the exception. Also, unfortunately when we were here the menu had just been changed so there was a added delay that came with an extra... More

We had some great meals in Aruba, but White was the far and away the best. I was skeptical because of the location inside the mall, but I shouldn't have been. We started with the shrimp dumplings which turned out the be the perfect starter. Totally satisfying. My seabass was one the of the best entrees I've ever had. My... More

We have been coming to Aruba for 21 years and there are some very fine restaurants on the island, this is the best. When we arrived we were welcomed by a very friendly hostess. She sat us near the kitchen so I could watch how the dishes were finished off and presented. What a show. My wife and I split... More
