“Black Bean Soup, please!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

After having had a bad experience waiting and waiting at Casa Tua, we took our drinks and abruptly left for a 2nd dining choice and found Spanglish. What a treat!!!!! Large portions, and the best black bean soup my son said he ever had. So glad we decided to spend our $ here instead!!!
Sometimes things turn out for the better!!!!!!!!!!!

“Great Little Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

My wife and I returned to this restaurant during our October trip. We were pleased to see that the restaurant has expanded from our previous visit in December 2011. The food is very good, the portions are good size and the drinks are reasonable. They make a fantastic Sangria. I don't generally like Sangria, but I always have it here. The food is fresh and the service is very good. You can choose to sit outside or inside in air condition. We went for lunch and opted to sit inside during the heat of the day but sat outside another time for dinner. We really enjoy this place for a nice casual meal at a reasonable price.

“New Find In Orangestad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

My husband and I are finishing up our stay in Aruba at the Renaissance Ocean Suites and were looking for a different restaurant to try. After reading some other reviews we decided to try it and were not disappointed. The food was not heavy but very satisfying and the drinks were excellent. Sangria is only served in glasses, not pitcher but again very good. Also ordered mojitos for "dessert". They only have Aruban flan for dessert but we had it the night before at another restaurant.

We ordered Cerviche that was very flavorful (nice mix of lime and cilantro flavor and for entree had the Parillada (sp?) for two which was a little bit of everything....some chicken, sausage, ribs, corn, and a few other things that I can't remember but was very tasty. it was served on a hibachi brought to the table.

Can view a little bit of the marina water (by the Seaport Casino)

Very good service. Prices were average (appetizer was $9 and the entree was about $23) For the two of us plus our two drinks it was $74. Coming from northern NJ it was not outrageous to us. Will definitely go back during future trips.

“Delicious....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

I am local and know a thing or two of the local scene... Spanglish offers delicious Latin food at an affordable price while you can enjoy eating right by the water.. I have been here several times and can't really say that I have one favorite dish cause every time I try something new.. I love it..but the rompe colchon seafood soup is a must.. And if you like spicy ask for their homemade hot sauce it's delish... Other things I have had are the beef mofongo and the ceviche and the carne asada all can be recommended.. Will definitely continue going...

“loved the sangria”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Decided to try this place while visiting Aruba based on a recommendation from a local we met. The sangria was delicious, the ceviche was good, but the ribs were just ok, they definitely did not fall off the bone as described. Friends ordered the salmon and the wahoo, both were good. Service and atmosphere were great!
