We ate here our last night on the island based on the recommendation of the chef at carte blanche. It was delicious, reasonably priced, and had a unique menu. The only problem was, we ate here the night after dining at Carte Blanche(outstanding).

For the price ($170) for four of us, it was second to none on the island though. Its a bit of a cab ride from the Marriott on eagle beach but I would definitely go back if we return to island!

...you definitely need to eat here. It's a 3 minute walk from there hotel and is literally right behind the Renaissance. My fiancee has the mahi mahi and it was delicious and I had picanha and it was excellent. We generally don't eat bread, but don't pass on the bread brought to the table. It's freshly made and incredible.

Definitely one of the top restaurants in Aruba. They also have some off-menu specials, like the applepie flavoured moonshine.

After many, many trips to Aruba, I finally made it to Yemanja! The vegetarian friendly menu caught my eye and there were so many dishes to choose from. The truffle risotto was fantastic, the salads were fresh and tasty and the chef's special veggie burger was delicious. The place is so cute and the service was great. (Thanks, Doreen!) The prices were more than fair and I highly recommend the yogurt dessert. We bought the sampler and the yogurt treat stood out among the rest. I can't wait to go back again next year!!

Every time I visit Aruba I go to have dinner at Yemanja. The service is so nice, the food is delicate and good portions. the price is fair and the wine list is not bad.. they could improve a little the wine list, but you will find options to pair your food. I would recommend the sea bass and the Churrasco!!
