Take the time to make the trip up the hill to this gem of a restaurant. The view is spectacular so get there before sunset and you will enjoy all the colors of the sky and ocean. The service is always terrific and the food is simply awesome. The pasta and fish dishes are the best so mix it up... More

Once again we had a delicious meal with a fantastic sunset! The view is amazing and the food is wonderful. We added a last minute friend to a reservation and were not able to sit by the railing but it didn't matter. We still had a great time. The service was very good and the food was delicious. This is... More

My boyfriend and I went for dinner reservations at 7PM. It was just in time to watch sunset high above the island. The restaurant was about 10 mins from the high-rise hotel area, located near the California Lighthouse. We thought this killed two birds with one stone by checking off the lighthouse and dinner in one trip. The views from... More

Had a wonderful dinner (filet for wife, lasagna for me.) Food was outstanding, service was terrific, setting was spectacular. Unfortunately, our sunset was somewhat hidden by some clouds on the horizon - but it was still a beautiful location and a wonderful experience. Definitely recommend..

We went here one night after a UTV tour earlier in the day led us to this site. The views at dinner are really quite amazing. The sunset was gorgeous and the outdoor seating has a terrific ambiance with the fixtures and lighting. The food was not as great, which was disappointing. The bartender's version of drinks was a bit... More

Let's begin with ... They didn't even have our reservation. The sangria was horrid along with the unfriendly bartender. Now let's get to the food. If you have ever eaten authentic Italian food you would throw this in the garbage. Three out of four of us took two bites of our food and stopped eating. What is most upsetting is... More

We dined at this restaurant last week during our annual visit to Aruba. It was a great experience. The food and service was very good. Excellent cannoli to end the night!

This restaurant was recommended because of the view. That's about all you get. We arrived 15 minutes early for a 6 PM reservation. The man sitting at the desk barely looked up and the bartender acted like we were bothering him. The waiter was equally disinterested and never asked if we wanted drinks. I was watching the other waiters as... More

Our family had the pleasure of dining here on our 3rd night in Aruba. The restaurant is nestled on a hill near the California Lighthouse, overlooking the northern parts of Aruba. The interior itself is covered half by a roof and the other part is open air dining. I have never dined in Italy or Spain, but this was the... More

This restaurant is adjacent to the California lighthouse and has extraordinary views. The food is excellent but expensive. Save for a special occasion. For us it was our 34th anniversary.
