Everything I read said that it was romantic. We did not find that to be so. Initial impressions were that the music set the stage for a tacky place with checkered plastic table cloths with music blaring - I'm thinking Italian. But there were cloth table cloths with plastic chairs covered with fabric. Romantic? Well, the tables were set around... More

This is one of our staple restaurants in Aruba. You can't go wrong here, food is excellent, great service and the location is almost beyond description. It is a walled in house with a swimming pool. You eat outside around the pool, lots of large trees, very nice. My wife says it is VERY romantic, so that answers that

Food grilled on a stone is different and really good (and healthy). Ambiance is exceptional and the service even better!

I truly enjoyed my two dinners at Paiamento. The ambiance was wonderful: relaxing, romantic, beautiful and the service was outstanding. The menu is lengthy with many options, including local dishes, and the food was delicious.

First off it's spotless including the bathroom. The bartenders are heavy on the pore, the Aruban nights cocktail was delicious but take a cab if you plan on having more than 1. Lobster bisque and the mushroom soup were delicious. They both came out piping hot. The champagne casserole is a medley of fish covered in a thick cheese sauce... More

Very corny ambiance with cloth covered plastic lawn chairs surrounding a dirty pool. Cocktails were not good at all, small and expensive (how can you mess up a mojito?). The food portions were large, but the food itself was very bland, had no taste. The menu was confusing and complicated. Not sure what the hype is about this place, but... More

It is an outdoor restaurant and with a trade wind it's fine but on a hot humid night it might be uncomfortable. The waiters and staff are so attentive. The entree come with a salad and the appetizers are plentiful. The hot stone dinners are different and plentiful. I love the lobster Thermidor.

This Romantic couples seating at pool side, with every table occupied, is what this place is all about. Very good food, wine, service and ambiance is what this outdoor/indoor fine dining is about. A quiet, natural decor setting is the place to be. Spend a few hours with your loved one and enjoy the light breeze. We started with a... More

I wasn't sure about going here since it's #44 of the restaurants in Aruba but I think it is severely underrated. The ambiance is awesome. The lighting and surrounding gardens are beautiful. I wasn't sure what to expect with the food and it far exceeded my expectations. The presentation was great and service was fast. We did have an issue... More
