We found a new place to try while staying in Aruba. This was off the main area in which we usually go to. Great menu along with good service.

The restaurant is set in a beautiful garden surrounding a pool.

Beautiful restaurant in a garden by a pol and a 150 year old house. Sweet little bar and everything we had from the 152 week cheese with truffle honey to the amazing huge shrimp and drinks were excellent. If you only go out one night go here
