Description: Enjoy the best cuisine in Aruba, cooked to perfection and artfully presented by our master chef, Matt Boland. "I think of my kitchen as an orchestra, where I am the conductor and my staff are the musicians. I guide and work alongside my musicians creating perfect harmony. The philosophy behind my menu is focused on freshness. The healthy aspect of our food comes from the ingredients we choose, which are fresh, local and nutritious. We then prepare these ingredients with unique spices and cooking techniques from all over the world. We present these dishes as a work of art to match Windows on Aruba’s beautiful surroundings. The pleasure of our cuisine is shown in the dining experience we provide; our guests leave feeling completely satisfied with all their senses stimulated." Matt Boland

This was our first trip to Aruba and Windows was highly recommended. It was Everything we had heard and more. We were greeted by Sonja and she was just delightful, she truly made our dining experience special and was happy to snap a couple of pictures for us along with the glass of champagne she welcomed us for our first time. All of our dishes were over the top in both taste and presentation. The Sea Bass was the best on the island, and the grouper was also delicious. We can't wait to return to try more things on the menu. You will love the food and the amazing service. One of the BEST places on the island.

We had a fun but loooooong brunch at Windows. It is a great way to have a relaxing brunch overlooking the golf course with some views of the ocean in the distance. The food was good overall, with some wonderful bites (duck breast, salad with goat cheese, crepe suzette, mimosas with fresh squeezed orange juice) and a lot of average bites (eggs benedict, waffles, scrambled eggs, chicken egg roll). The servers were pleasant and nice, but there were many 20-30 minute waits in between ordering simple things and getting them (like coffee or the check). Overall, I am glad we went, but don't expect every bite to be amazing and expect it to be a long brunch.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and also friends of ours joined us that were celebrating their anniversary. We were given a glass of champagne to toast our celebrations!

The presentation of the food was very beautiful and the food itself was out of this world. The desserts were so beautiful and tasted like heaven!

We will definitely make a return trip to Windows on our next visit.

Thank you!

Not quite sure what took us so long to try this restaurant. Everything about it--from the panoramic view of the beautiful golf course, the attentive service, the spectacular food (taste & presentation), the ambiance...it was a memorable experience.

A beautiful setting, surrounded by the Links Golf Course. The service from the moment we walked in and were greeted by Sonja, to the friendly, capable server Anne, it was a first class experience. We were there to celebrate a special anniversary and it was only moments after we were seated that we were presented with Champagne, compliments of Windows and watched the sunset.
The menu was extensive and we enjoyed an appetizer, Chateaubriand for two cooked to perfection(would have been fun to have it flamed at our table but oh well) and shared their Dessert for Two (a sampling of a dozen of their desserts, wow!)
The manager came by to see that we were happy with everything. Sonja appeared at the end of our meal with an Anniversary Plate with a heart=shaped Mousse with a candle and took our picture. They also presented us with a certificate wishing us Happy Anniversary from the Staff of Windows.
At no time did we feel rushed as you often do at the resorts where they have to keep things moving. Would highly recommend this spot.
