My husband and I ate here on our first night in Aruba as it was just down the street of where we were staying. The ambiance is very relaxed. When it gets dark you are lit by small lanterns and it just makes it that much special. The food we ordered was delicious. I ordered the pan-fried battered fish and... More

Terrific sunsets, great food and angel fish jumping at your tossed leftovers. Get out of the touristy hotel center and come down here!

This is a wonderful location, deck right on the water with a beautiful view and great for sunset dining. Many of the appetizers and main entrees are very good. The shortcomings from our view are in the lack of creativity with the presentations, the lack of quality in the sides, and the somewhat lackadaisical service attention. The pricing generally will...
