We arrived early and they graciously moved us to the bar and set up our table quickly. The bartender was helpful and appropriately chatty, recommending some wines/beverages for the food items we were considering. Once we moved to the dining room, we had phenomenal service from the staff--prompt and friendly, but not pushy. The food was wonderful, including a salad that was incredibly unique--and that my wife said was the best salad she'd ever eaten in her life! We were stuffed and didn't have dessert--a regret. Highly recommend a visit here!

We are so pleased that we added this new restaurant to our Aruba restaurant list. Knowing that the owner of Carte Blanche had opened this restaurant made us very excited and we were not disappointed. We started with a wonderful round of delicious martinis. I especially like the Tomatini (I think that was the name) which was a tomato juice based martini. We were then brought some terrific smoked cauliflower soup. I had the Wilhelmina salad and the Bronzini in Putanesca sauce. The salad was fun and the fish was amazing. My friends are vegetarians and had the Risotto al Pomodoro which they said was great.
Besides the food, the decor was a fun industrial look and the service was great.
I highly recommend this restaurant and am mostly concerned that it will become impossible to get a reservation here in short order.

Absolutely wonderful. Great wine menu, the portions are large and flavorful. I had the shrimp wrapped in Prosciutto with homemade Gnocci - the Gnocci was the best I've ever had....my friend had the lamb...all amazing. I would highly recommend and it's so easy to get to from any of the "hotel zone" restaurants like the Marriott, Hyatt, etc.

As soon as we arrived we knew it would be excellent and it was. The restaurant is decorated with interesting art work. we had :the lobster bisque and the sea bass, seafood salad and brazini fish-all outstanding. The fish was prepared beautifully and presented so well. Delicious desserts too. This is a must try for anyone visiting Aruba. We hope to return in the future.
