The restaurant was right across the street from our condo at the La Cabana Beach resort so one night we decided to walk over for dinner. What a wonderful surprise to find such a nice dining experience right next door. The ambiance was great and the meals superb. My wife had the Fresh Red Snapper and I had the Black Pasta with Lobster, Scallops Sausage & Shrimp. Perhaps the best part of the meal was the service provided by our waiter Eduardo. All his recommendations were spot on. We will return.

I have been going to Aruba for 13 years, and have to say Carambola is now my absolutely favourite restaurant. We have gone to many many restaurants on the island and have had our signature favourites but this past January we were in Aruba for two weeks and not only ate there once, not twice, but three times. It is fine dining with superb service (Edwardo you are amazing!) and all the staff that also helped made each visit wonderful. The food is so delicious. There Carambola house salad is amazing and the Seafood special are just a few that knocked our sandals off! You won't be just a number at this place, you will feel like your coming home to a 5 star gourmet chief.

This restaurant showed up on the top 10 list this year. Not sure why? The food is good and service is friendly and adequate. They do run a special on Friday night for $34.95 which includes a glass of sangria, lobster bisque and a grouper main course. Well worth the money. Choose to sit inside. The outdoor seating was disappointing. A tent covered wood structure that didn't give you the feeling of being outside. Wines by the glass were generous pours and the most reasonably priced we saw all week.
