Bravo, Bravo, Bravo. An evening of food theater....thank you for getting us a reservation due to a cancellation. It was the highlight of our vacation. Dennis and Glen, perfect together and thoroughly professional. What more can we say except, thank you and come visit us in New York at Juliana's Pizza. Best regards. Carol and Pat

“When in Aruba don't miss”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

This is a restaurant experience. Te restaurant seats only 14-16 and reservations must be made months in advance and can be made online. We were lucky - a cancellation opened a spot for us. The menu is chosen by chef Dennis and, on our evening, it was superb with excellent wine matching by Glenn. Expensive but it is more than dinner - an experience

“Fantastic experience!!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Just go. Make your reservation in advance or you won't get in. One of the couples dining with us planned their trip around their dinner reservation here. Yes, it's that good.

“AMAZING FOOD!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I won`t write long review, since previous reviewers already said everything about this amazing place. Great atmosphere and absolutely delicious food (felt myself as if I was a part of Top Chef show)! Enjoy pictures and remember to book it pretty much in advance (we visited Carte Blanche in May and booked it still in January). But it was so worth it!

@ Dennis, thanks so much for a wonderful menu. Keep on such a great job!
