Had a confirmed reservation. Arrived on time, restaurant was closed. They decided to close, for whatever reason. I emailed in anger, owner apologized.

“Exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

We read the excellent ratings in both TripAdvisor and RestaurantsAruba.com. We saw the wonderful photos on their not quite finished website. And even so, Carambola exceeded our expectations. Wonderful food and sincere, attentive services - particularly from Aldo. One of their specialties called New Zealand Rack of Lamb exceeded any we have had in New Zealand and both the peanut soup and mushroom risotto was superb. We will be back!

“A hidden jewel on Eagle Beach”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

We happened by Carombola while out walking and decided to give it a try. We were rewarded with excellent food and service. Interesting, h usual, and tasty dishes. Restaurant was almost empty when we were there; the restaurant is hidden off a side street and there is little effective advertising or signage. We will definitely return.
