Made the bad decision to eat here for breakfast just to try a new restaurant. There's a reason there was not a wait. The over medium eggs came out like bricks and the sausage link crunched like a potato chip. We did talk to the...More

It is fairly difficult to find good bourbon on Aruba. Johnny Walker can be found but if you like Angel's Envy, Jefferson's Reserve, Buffalo Trace, or higher end bourbon good luck. Sidecar is your one Bourbon refuge on the island. It had a great list,...More

Sidebar Bistro has unique burgers with excellent taste. They do also have more traditional lunch options also if you don’t want to break away from the norm. The Zucchini fries, Afterburner burger (has guacamole and jalapeños) and the grouper sandwich were both excellent. Courteous wait...More

Sidebar Bistro is unique in a trendy, sassy and sexy way; it is ready to welcome you. Common ground and denominating factor of the guests includes the enjoyment of life, in particular the good things, such as great bistro food, wonderful drinks and a relaxed, happy atmosphere. What's so special about Side Bar, you might ask? The menu covers all the bases as well as the outfield, with the stress on quality. Side Bar's chef is a miracle working in the creativity department, so you can always ask him to surprise you with his specials. When it comes to drinks, we might warn you: once you try the various Bourbons or Barrel Aged cocktails, you will be lost. This is another world, unknown on Aruba, where your taste buds will be partying and the lingering aftertaste of a premium Bourbon will be a cherished memory for a long time to come. Are you a beer lover? Well, there will be six beers on tap as well, among them Heineken, Balashi, Chill, Stella Artois and Miller. Nobody will leave this bar thirsty.
