When I'm on vacation, the last thing I want to be doing is standing in a sweltering, overcrowded space for 37 minutes while I wait on a hamburger. This place was packed, so there were no seats available. Standing near enough to the bar so...you could hear your name called when your food was ready was my only option ... for well more than half an hour. When I finally got to eat my hamburger, the bun was cold and the burger was so dry I had to take a big drink after each bite. I had planned to eat half for lunch and save the other half for dinner, especially since a single hamburger was $15 US. But I ended up just throwing the other half away. I don't expect great food from a beach shack (although I've often gotten it). But I do expect it to come out in a reasonable amount of time, and feel like the value I received was acceptable considering it was at a popular vacation destination. This was not. Having said that, the beer was cold and it was served immediately. Do yourself a favor - Go for the beach and beer, and grab a bite at any other of the many great Aruba restaurants in the area.More

Great little spot to sit at the bar and catch the sunset. Right on he water for easy access into the ocean. We were on a cruise and rented a jeep for the day, we heard this spot was the place to watch the sunset...so we jetted over to check it out, did not disappoint! We ordered a couple drinks and enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean and sunset. The only thing I’d mention is the staff weren’t too over friendly or helpful, we were there for less than an hour, had to clean our own tables (no biggie for us) and kind of felt like we were in the way of them leaving. We left as soon as the sunset went down. Overall great place and I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt they had a crazy busy day from all the cruise ship ppl.More

Ordered Shrimp Sandwich basket, partially because it included fried palenta. Only after the sandwich came out with fries did they i form us they were out of polenta. Of course they charged full price and would not offer anything in exchange. And the sandwich came...with only four shrimp. Sandwich was good but overpriced even for a beach bar.More

Went for lunch and the beach, shrimp, calamari and fried polenta, all very good, but calamari was the best, few beers and waters made for great lunch, then rented chairs and umbrella on hot beach. Bathrooms on site for $1 eqch time unless you eat...or rent chairs. Good day, we will likely go backMore

Great little spot on the beach - so convenient if you are spending a day in the Arashi area! It is "fast food" but very tasty and reasonable. We ate here two or three times, having chicken fingers, tacos, seafood ceviche among other things. It's...all really good. The crab sandwich I wouldn't recommend (shredded imitation crab). Great little spot and highly recommend! They charge $1 to use the bathroomMore

Arashi beach shack was by far my favorite spot on the island the food was great and so were the drinks. Bartenders always served with smiles on their faces and were always happy to engage in a conversation. Bubu and Sven made our trip to...arashi beach full of laughs and memories to never forget. Very sweet people and hope to see them when we come back.More

The Beach is beautiful, great snorkeling to the left side of the beach shack, lots of interesting rock formations housing lots of tropical fish species. The food and service at the shack were wonderful, the large free parking lot was super clean and paved. We...rented two lounge chairs at $8 each for a spot in the shade, a family joined us and they spent $16 on 2 chairs and joined us, they left about 30 minutes earlier than us and then the staff came over and demanded that we give two of the chairs back even though we were laying in 3 of them. It was extremely RUDE and they didn’t even care. Everything was great except for the chair hawks that pounce as soon as anyone leaves.More

Stopped in for a quick bite after walking the beach. Arashi Beach Shack is a typical beach restaurant that is open air, but covered. There are tables and a bar. We had a crab salad sandwich and a tuna salad sandwich. Fries cost extra. The...sandwiches were very good. Overall the price was reasonable and the service good.More
