Certificate of Excellence2017 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

A restaurant concept which combines signature dishes and flavors from all over the world. Originated from the popular 'El Cine' Restaurants founded in Caracas, the concept will set new standards in the Aruba's gastronomic scene. For the exiting project of +297 Restaurant in Aruba, Executive Chef Gian Franco Curzi joined forces with Oscar Noborikawa. With all this proficiency, the team understands there is more to cooking than just food: It is the people and their collective interactions that make the experience.

Tapas selections are good and so as the food. We just did not feel the Atmosphere captured the Aruba environment. If you do go don't sit inside, sit at a table outside .

Way too overpriced for small tapas. Food was good, don't get me wrong, but even compared to upscale restaurants in Washington, D.C., this place was overpriced. There are too many other good restaurants on this island, don't waste your time or money here.

After being disappointed by the “must dos” on the island (Quinta del Carmen, madame Jeanette etc) this place blew us away! Great service, amazing menu, the food was absolutely delicious. Probably the best sushi we’ve ever had and we are from NYC so that says...More
