Sat outside for an enjoyable dinner in the garden after a cocktail hour at the garden bar. The cuisine was surprisingly good. I had the grouper which was delicious. Great ambiance only surpassed by the great service. I recommend Quinta del Carmen.

This is a fine dining restaurant and the menu and the prices are reflective of that. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is well presented and very, very good. The service is excellent and as with everything in Aruba, served with a smile.

Want to get off the "high rise" rut and do some fine dining in a converted manor? When we couldn't get reservations at another outdoor manor setting they suggested Quinta del Carmen. It is a beautiful setting with lots of outdoor seating on terraces lighted...More

The restaurant grounds and interior decor are quite nice and well maintained. Most of our meal was very good. The scallops and crab chowder were tasty, and the lobster tail with shrimp was well prepared and tasted pretty fresh. My girlfriend ordered the paella and...More
