“Great dinner, tremendous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

They have a place for your shoes so you can enjoy the sugary white sand between your toes. Our waiter, Mauricio, was entertaining, funny, friendly and an all-around excellent waiter. The fresh fish and desserts were very good. Sitting on the beach, watching an unbelievable sunset, eating a great meal created a wonderful memory.

“Romantic dining on the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Conveniently located on the beach in front of the Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, this restaurant is ok if you're staying in the high rise hotel area. The food is overpriced and not very good. I was expecting fresh local seafood so I was disappointed to discover that everything was previously frozen and imported from other countries. I was also bothered by the misleading note on the menu that they support sustainable fishing and therefore encourage diners to select from their 5 "fresh" fish selections. They definitely use the term fresh a bit too loosely and cater to the masses. I would probably not eat here again.

“Truly Romantic Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We reserved for a 7:00 pm dinner, since its the fall the sunset earlier. It would have been nice to watch the sunset as we waited for our delicious meals.... The stars and night sky were just as beautiful. The service was great and tables were set far apart enough that it felt like it was just the two of us. It was a great way to begin our 5 year anniversary vacation. A total must if you go to Aruba!

“Best dinner ... no best dinner / dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Simply delicious, simply delightful, Simply Fish! Ocean-side dining, great service, and an outrageous desert to boot - the coconut cream cake a la mode. You could show up for the the desert alone, but don't do it... this is a place for a romantic meal and at a very reasonable price.

“Nice dinner on the beach”

Good food and great atmosphere! We have been here many times and certainaly will be back. You have to make a reservation at least one day in advance to get a table at sunset.
