We all had salads. Excellent waitress. Good service. Enjoyed the bread. Coffee was fresh and tasty, not bitter like many eateries.

We have a place in Fort Lauderdale and we're there several weeks each year. Friends came to see our digs on Thanksgiving weekend from about 20 miles away and they suggested we eat here. It was a drizzly evening but when it let up, the manager did his best and cleaned up a table outside. (Our friends had their dog... More

We were passing through Lauderdale By the Sea Last Winter while on vacation. The food is amazing and the view of the ocean is breathtaking. Can't wait to go back!!

On December 28, 2015 I had dinner at Aruba with an elderly Canadian couple. It was a beautiful evening and we had a nice dinner sitting out on the deck until the waiter brought the check. The gentleman paid with cash, saying he needed no change, and we stayed to finish our drinks. The waiter came back and asked if... More

Went out with a group of buddies for a friend's birthday on the recommendation of one of the friends. Despite it being packed on a busy Saturday night we got right in for a table of five. The addition of "beach cafe" in the name should tell you right off the bat that this isn't steak or high-end dining, but... More

Aruba Beach Cafe has been around for awhile, and for good reason. The beach view is a strong drawing point but the food is the feature performer. Aruba offers a diverse menu with some signature dishes that are unique and exceptional. Service is adequate but not particularly engaging. Demand for tables seems to create a turnover atmosphere and the servers... More

We always visit Aruba when we are anywhere in the area. It has a very large menu that satisfies even the pickiest of our travelers. All the food we have ever had is wonderful. It has a beautiful setting, especially the outdoor setting. The inside can get quite loud. There has always been live music when we were there. The... More

I have been going to Arubas for ten years. Never had a bad meal. Live music and dancing make for a fun time also.
