“The Best!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

My wife and I always have dinner here when we visit Aruba. Just go about 30 minutes before the sunsets and sit with your feet in the sand while the sun departs. Additionally, the food is excellent and the staff works really hard to please. Don't miss it.

“We love to celebrate their.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Try the Chef's choice for 2, it is wonderful and you get to try several dishes as it is always more that one appitzer, main course and dessert. We go back every year and will continue to do so.

“Gorgeous!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Please listen to fellow Tripadvisors... GO BEFORE SUNSET!!! It is a really, really amazing show. The restaurant is a long drive from hotels for Aruba standards, about 30 mins and $25 each way if you take a cab. But once you're there you totally forget about the long expensive ride. WORTH IT!
Food is good, drink is good and there are a lot of choices by the glass, including champagne.
Do not rush through drinks and dinner, I don't think they plan double seatings, at least when we were there, so enjoy the wet sand in your toes, the bubbly, the sun slowly sinking in the horizon, the smells and tastes of seafood... and if you're lucky and have leftover bread you might see actual flying fish next to your table.
Expensive but, in our opinion, worth it.
Try the chocolate ravioli for dessert, we didn't and still regret it ; )

“great ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Great ambiance and view and offcourse excellent company, while our 3 year old daughter enjoyed playing in the sand, we enjoyed a perfect diner. We tried the Baracuda, Steak with Gorgonzola based sauce, the shrimp roti for the little one and calamari as a starter. loved it all.

“Tricky to get to if you are driving, but worth the trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

First I must give some landmarks. If you are approaching on 1B from the airport, once you see the Savaneta sign make a right ( ~0.5 miles) right after you see a Dominos pizza sign on the left hand side of the road. If you pass the Valero gas station on the left you have gone too far.

The atmosphere was quite unique with the illuminated waves lapping at your feet while dining on some of the finest cuisine on the island. Onion soup with shrimp as an appetizer quite good and unique. Wahoo was fresh and grilled to perfection. The Savaneta sea food history was quite large and contained all but lobster in a mild curry sauce. For dessert, the apple tarte tartain was fantastic with contrasting flavors of the apple with ice cream garnished with star and passion fruit for tartness.
