Fantastic location and views. Excellent and professional service. Very diverse menu of fresh seafood. The location is farther north of where our GPS indicated. It’s still on the same road. Large portions.

Beautiful waterfront views, excellent service, and delicious food in a not crowded setting! We were lucky to get a table without a reservation but don’t take a chance on missing this small hidden gem!

We dined here over christmas break as a party of 11. The fish was excellent. The atmosphere and service were even better! Probably the most special dinner on the island for us.

Down the anonymous stairs this pearl appears! A cosy and fantastic view over the sunset and nice interior. The staff was very friendly and service minded. The food, with a profile on local seafood, was fantastic!

Where to begin-with the completely charming owner Mr. Didi Donker who gave my husband and me an impromptu tour of the restaurant when we stopped by the evening before? Or perhaps our excellent server Sheila who calls you ‘sweetheart’. Or the fact that you may...More

It's insane that this restaurant is ranked so low! To me it was definitely one the best we visited in Aruba. We arrived quite early and even without a reservation managed to get a table on the deck, right there by the water. Absolutely amazing...More

depends on the time of year you go. From March-June, definitely need a reservation. If you want to eat at sunset, I recommend getting a reservation at 6 no matter what time of year.
