“Great food and service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The first meal was so good we ate there two nights later. The food was well presented and tasted very good. I had the same meal both times and it was excellent. The employees were friendly and courteous. We will eat there again this December.

“Location Isn't Everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This downtown restaurant has no view like many other Aruba restaurants. Located downtown, it's fine to sit outside as they have done a fine job of planting bushes and fauna to block the view of the nearby streets. The food makes it all worth it. The grouper off the regular menu is not only unique should be considered a special. The service is very attentive and the cost of the main courses are very reasonably priced. Parking on the nearby streets is not a problem. Sit outside which is covered by an awning.

Good vibe to this place - chef (walking around the room) and servers very attentive. Loved the onion soup I had and the fish. My wife also happy with her meal.

“Piece of art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We visited Yemanja January 19 2013. Like the other times we were there, again it was outstanding! We ordered: sashimi scallops, beef carpaccio bomb, puff pastry shrimp and the home smoked rib-eye salad. Afterwards we had the petit grand dessert, artwork! All litlle bites of all the desserts on the menu.
Everything was delicious, the waitstaff did a perfect job; we had a great, great time!
