“Amazing seafood”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Amazing meal, fantastic service. We didn't have reservations and they were very accommodating. I had an amazing flounder (?) that was wrapped around Boursin cheese. Wish we went back a second time especially given a disappointing meal at Madame Janette. Cannot wait to be back!

“Birthday Diner”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The food and service is really good, The sides are served family style and the Mojito's are excellent. We had fresh fish - grouper and mahi mahi. Desserts were decadent. We ate outdoors and with the overhead fans it was really comfortable.

“DELICIOUS! A MUST in Aruba!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Amazing food! We arrived at 745p (we are a party of 2) and the restaurant filled up shortly after we sat down. The food is DELICIOUS. We had the lobster cappuccino, pichana (beef, chef recommended), the grouper special (also chef recommended) and creme brulee. Every bit of the meal was amazing. This is our favorite place in our week stay in Aruba!
