Loved the ambience of being outside near the ocean, feeling the breeze, and the beautiful island music. We returned the last night of our island vacation because it was just so perfect. Service, food and staff wonderful!

Las Ramblas is a delight. It is a small open air dining restaurant on Palm Beach (not in Oranjestad as it is listed by tripadvisor.) It is on the grounds of La Cabana Beach Club. The service was gracious and efficient. The setting lovely and the food first rate. We shared the mussels appetizer, which was incredibly tasty, and the seared tuna, which was delicate and perfect. Main courses are cooked on the grill. My lamb chops were perfect and my wife really enjoyed the catch of the day (sword fish.) Portions are large served with chopped sweet potato and a perfectly cooked vegetable medley. This is a cut above the commercial outdoor dinning places at the large hotels on the beach. Prices are comparable to a similar restaurant in the states. You will not be disappointed.

We visited Las Ramblas as part of the AGA Dine Around programme. We arrived on time (we discovered there's no need to walk through La Cabana hotel, the restaurant can be reached directly from the road) - but our table wasn't ready. The restaurant manager, Tony, promptly offered us a complimentary drink at the nearby bar, and called us when the table became available 10 minutes later.
The menu didn't resemble anything we'd call tapas - it was a surf & turf type menu with everything cooked on the charcoal grill. The menu choice was good, though, and portions were huge, as per everywhere in Aruba.
The food was well cooked and tasty, with steaks and fish supported by sweet potato mash and fresh vegetables. Desserts were great, though too much for us to finish.
Our waiter, Keith, was very friendly and proactive in bringing us more water and telling us about the specials on offer. Service was at a sensible speed too. His friendliness mirrored the relaxed atmosphere of the outdoor dining and made it a really special evening.

Make sure you have dinner here and enjoy the sunset. The food is varied and enjoyable and is decent value for money.

My husband and I ended up being the only people there(we got there late). We danced as we waiting for our food, the saxophonist played, very romantic . It was very nice, the food was amazing, and the service was great as well.
