“Sit Inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

The outside seating is not very attractive but indoors is much more elegant. The food was well prepared and the 'specials' are the way to go. The menu items were run of the mill. They seemed to be understaffed as the service was below par.

“ALDO was A-OK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

I suggest dinner at Carambola, #64 on JE Irausquin Boulevard. There is a lovely outside deck but inside there is old world charm and elegant decor. Aldo makes certain you have fast service and delicious food. There is also a good variety of options including two vegetarian dishes, a rarity in Aruba. Have the Risotto!

“Disrespectful”

Had a confirmed reservation. Arrived on time, restaurant was closed. They decided to close, for whatever reason. I emailed in anger, owner apologized.
