Bon bon shrimp is heavenly! Even though the shrimp is small, it is very lightly breaded and the sauce is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. It went perfectly with the rum punch drink. My husband had grandma's rum lemonade and the patties that had one cheese, one beef and one chicken. He said they all were good. It... More

My husband and I decided to stop here for food while out on our stroll one night. Not sure about the rest of the menu but I ordered the jerk ribs with blackbeans and not only was it very tasty but I had plenty leftovers for later that evening. The view is great and our server was great!

A wide variety of choices and a fun place to eat. Ship dock is across the street so lots of off shore tourists there.

I eat there twice and would have more if had more time. The Strawberry Mojito was great. And the Coconut Shrimp was to die for. As I looked around enjoying my meal and the view, I paid attention to other meal items that were being served, and they were so eye appealing and the aroma was unreal.... Make sure and... More

Great restaurant with open-air feel. Our drinks were not watered down and the food was awesome. Waitress was nice. We have been here many times and recommend it. It can get crowded when their are cruise ships in town.

We chose to walk around Aruba and take photos and see the sights. We found the area near the cruise port most interesting, clean, and beautiful. Some folks chose excursions to beaches, lighthouse, church, desert rides, and many more things to do. Everyone seemed to be pleased with their choices. We was also very pleased with just wandering around town... More
