We sat inside right next to beach. We had a great view, great service and great food. Our waitresses were very attentive and had great suggestions for food. I had the tuna appetizer and the seafood trio. Both were excellent! My significant other had the special of the week. The ceviche was great as was the grouper and shrimp mousse.... More

An absolute must for dinner. Food was great and eating on the beach at sunset. That's all you need. We can went during the show but season in Aruba but I would still recommend making reservations.

Outstanding food and service! Not to say How cool it was to have dinner served to us right on the beach! Way too cool! And what a beautiful sunset in the background. Fish was delicious as was the beef. Appetizers were great too. Nothing like enjoying a cocktail with your lady and a wonderful meal at a great place. Service... More

We chose to eat indoors which is really like a giant palapa, you can eat with toes in the sand. Had grouper in a mango sauce, excellent. Great service and atmosphere. A little tough to find but well worth it. Will definitely return here next time we are in Aruba.

Beautiful setting, good food and service, just check your ticket before paying. We received the wrong bill so we had to call our waiter back to get the correct ticket.

We visited here July 2013 - This restaurant is just amazing. I had read about it back in the UK before flying out for our honeymoon. Upon mentioning it to our Thomson rep she called up and made a reservation for us. Upon arrival we both had a glass of complimentary champagne, our rep must have told them we were... More

Thus place is very romantic and beautifull for pictures and sunset. The service is on but not professional. The food is ok they are a lot of places in Aruba that is better for food. Very expensive for the quality and amount of you get.

Aruba is all about the fabulous beaches during the day, and the many great restaurants at night. It is only logical that these two unique things of Aruba are combined into one! Luc & Gerco found the perfect spot to synergize great food, and a beautiful setting to create an experience almost unique on our island. When listening to the ocean caressing the shore, while wiggling your toes through the pearly white sand, why not let yourself be pampered by a gourmet dinner? Chef Gerco & Maitre d' Luc had a shared dream of opening up a restaurant here, but wanted something in line with what they enjoy on Aruba: the nearly perfect climate, the possibility to always be outside, the tropical feel... When opening their restaurant, they had these ideas in their heads, and it worked like a charm! Tables under a large palapa on a wooden deck with a view of the ocean, or outside under the Aruban nights sky, on the pristine beach... An original menu was created by Gerco and team, with some of the old school favorites as well as locally influenced dishes. With the help of the local wine suppliers, Luc made an extensive wine list, with wines from all over the world, and is always ready to pair a wine with your dinner. The experienced service team is friendly yet professional, ready to wow you from the moment you walk in, to make a fabulous evening into a great memory on Aruba!
