We were a group of 4 adults and 4 children and ate at the west deck in August 2014.
The restaurant is located on the beach and has a nice view . Our server was very friendly . We waited for our food for around 45 minutes. The food was very good but portions were not that big . We ordered two plates of surf and turf and two plates of Mahi Mahi with shrimp. The surf and turf was 28$ and the Mahi Mahi 25$. The children each ordered an appetizer since there is no kids menu .The calamari was very good and the portion was a good size. The shrimp my daughter ordered only consisted of 3 shrimp with a spoonful of pasta salad ( very small portion even if it's only an appetizer). There was also live entertainment!!!Overall, the food is good but don't expect big portions and the menu is a little pricey for the portions you get. The staff is very friendly and the location pretty!!!

If you feel like a casual relaxed meal and a cocktail by the sea, try the West Deck.They make the best Keshi Yeena I have ever had(we have been to Aruba every Year from 1985).Give Chef Erik, and his head cook Angela a visit.
They will not disappoint you.
Our waiter 's name was Erik, and his service was definitely not on island time ,yet not rushed either. A true island experience at reasonable prices too.Enjoy!

We stumbled upon this gem on our way home from Baby Beach and we are sure glad we did! The service was a bit slow at first but the food made up for it! We had the grouper fingers, chicken/pineapple dish, garlic shrimp (YUM!), and sweet potato fries. The is a less expensive alternative but still a great option with a beautiful beachside view. We saw one of the cruise ships leaving as well as the sunset. We would definitely return to the West Deck--Francisco, our waiter, was great too!

We started off by going to a different restaurant in the Palm Beach area next to one of the hotels. We sat there for 40 minutes without getting menus so we left. We drove around and found this place. As we came in, the manager walked straight up to my girlfriend and I, shook my hand, told us thanks for coming, and sat us. We ordered drinks and food, all of which came out promptly. The small plates were SO good. We were so happy because this place basically saved our night. The outdoor covered seating was so nice and the view was spectacular. Prices aren't any different than any other place in Aruba, maybe a little cheaper. When we left the manager shook my hand again but it was us who thanked him this time. Awesome place.

Went with family. Staff was very personable. All the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Amaretto margarita was really good.
Awesome view, relaxed atmosphere and live music.
