“Amazing view and incredible food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

After many trips to this incredible island we finally ate here at Windows on Aruba, it was spectacular! We wish we would have discovered it sooner.
We enjoyed the ravioli appetizer and both had the Sea Bass on our server, Miguel's, recommendation, it honestly was the best we have ever had and the risotto was perfect as well.
We have no complaints about our visit here and look very forward to our next meal here!

“What a special place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and he surprised me with dinner at this restaurant after our vow renewal ceremony. From start to finish it was wonderful! Sonia, the hostess, was so welcoming. She brought over glasses of champagne and took pictures for us. The menu was great with lots of wonderful things to choose from- but there was a special for two of Chateaubriand- which we chose. It was fabulous. Sonia came back at the end of the meal and brought a lovely dish with the words Happy Anniversary written on it. We again took pictures.

The wine list was extensive and they were having a special with reduced prices for some of the wines.

One caveat- it was a little hard to find. It is in the LINKS golf club in a separate building. Absolutely worth searching for! Fabulous food, great service, wonderful view- don't miss it when you are in Aruba.

We loved it so much that we went back on our last night ! Sonia recognized us and we continued to celebrate our anniversary . Thank you windows on Aruba !!

“A memorable dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

My husband and I found this restaurant comparable to any top restaurant where we have dined. Not only was the view lovely but also the menu. The presentation was truly an artistic pleasure. The wine list must also be mentioned, My husband and I are wine enthusiasts and can vouch for the wines offered.

“Fabulous Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Delicious meal but I think that you really pay for the views.
Food portion was on the small side, although it was very well prepared.
It's one of those situations where you feel like you could have more for the buck
