We went for the Sunday brunch and were impressed with the beautiful setting. There is an extensive selection of dishes to choose from and everything was quite good but it is hard to justify paying $50 for each child over 8. This was our most expensive meal on Aruba and I wouldn't recommend it unless you love buffets. The servers were friendly but very busy.

The setting is great, in the Hyatt which is beautiful by night. The food is good but not great. Service is punctual attentive and very friendly.

The food at this restaurant is superb. I love sitting outside by the large koi like pond where the black swans, fish and turtles are. The turtles will eat right out of your hand if you sit next to the water! I had a grilled grouper which was absolutely delicious. The restaurant would probably be considered a little bit on the high side but you definitely get what you pay for here. The ambience is a 10, the food is a 10 and the wait staff were great!

nice setting. Expensive menu. The fish did not taste fresh and the preparation was uninspired to say the least. One can do better for less.

Wife and I ate first day brunch here. A good layout with a large crowd. My favorite areas were the seafood and deserts. Service somewhat stilted.
