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

Darwin our server was amazing! He was spot on with his recommendations and very attentive throughout the evening. The drinks and presentation are the highlight of White- don't order wine- watch the bartender create a master cocktail while sitting at the bar- the White mojito is the perfect start to the night. The sea bass is the best fish meal... More

Definitely a Must Try! The staff was wonderful, the food was outrageous and the atmosphere was modern, classy, yet comfortable and inviting. My husband had the corn chowder which was absolutely delicious. Then he had the chicken and sage dinner which was also amazing, but a little on the small side. I had the steak and mushroom dinner which was... More

Great night, fantastic, creative drinks. Some of the very best food we have had in over ten years of traveling to Aruba. Our server Darwin was delightful.

Having read so many reviews online, we really wanted to try one of Urvin Croes's restaurants, and we ended up at White Modern. The restaurant is on the smaller side, but creates a number of different spaces, so seating still seems private. Decor was nice, and tasteful, and the evening was off to a great start. We ordered our meal,... More
