We got to eat here in the middle of our ultimate island tour. With the tour you get certain items for free and you get to upgrade for others. We got 1 BBQ chicken and upgraded to 1 burger. The chicken was actually very good,...More

We took the ABC tour & this was the last stop for lunch, which was included in our tour, with drinks @ your expense. We had 2 beers @ $4/each. We sat outside on a shaded patio & it was most comfortable with a breeze....More

ABC Jeep Tours included lunch in our excursion in Aruba. At the end of the tour lunch was included at this restaurant. Most in the group had bbq chicken, hamburger or hot dogs. Food was well prepared and hit the spot after our tour.

Tried to make a reservation here during my vacation and was told they were no longer open. We had eaten here during a previous visit to the island and wanted to go back but unable to at this time.

Went here when we were on ABC tours (next door). Had a light lunch before a jeep tour. You don't want to have anything heavy before 4 wheeling through the country. Hit the spot for us.
