A casual restaurant with lots of choices on the menu, friendly service, and most importantly a very cute ambiance and ocean view.
Wonderful new place to dine at the linear park next to Wilhelmina Park.

Ask the locals all you want about the best, authentic place to eat but usually they will give you the polite wrong answers. Why should they give you there hiding places from the tourist crowds ?
But I will !, We had a 2 lb.same day caught whole red snapper, in Aruba spices for $22 U.S.
Tropical crafted cocktails about $8 and it is situated just steps from the Caribbean shoreline.
True happiness abounds here and service is good as well.

We had read some reviews of this new tapas type Oceanview spot and decided to try it.
You can select small plates to share or some larger entrees. We had 2 plus arepas. the dishes were good, but I felt they were a bit over priced.
staff was friendly.
Experience was pleasant but I think we enjoyed other places more.

Thanks to Eric at Pinchos (a favorite spot for dinner), we were directed just up the beach to their 'sister restaurant' and tried it the following night. So glad we did. It's an appetizer concept restaurant with traditional Aruban cuisine and also, what I would call 'new Caribbean'. The food was outstanding and the portions, although reasonably priced were much heartier than I imagined. Our server Carlos was friendly, attentive and good at his job, while the chef, Erwin, who came out to introduce himself makes the best Keshi Jena ( they spell it with a 'J' here) on the island. And I've had it everywhere. Get a Beer'ita for something fun and different. Overall A+ on this place. A new favorite for sure and we'll be back!.....Take 2.... we DID go back! The only place we went to TWICE on our 11 day trip. We've been going to Aruba for 20 years, so for us to go back to the same place twice in one trip, you know it must be good. Server was Raoul this time - fun guy. We even reminisced about some mutual acquaintances and had some good laughs.

I went with my boyfriend wanted to try some snacks ordered 3 or 4 the conch were delicious, but the rest of the food was a disappointment, the chicken wings were too cooked, almost burned, .. .. Cuban mojitos too sweet .. the service was very friendly and attentive .. cozy decoration beautiful view ... They could improve on the food .. pricey for a poor quality.
