“Fresh food in Aruba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Only been here one night and we were a bit worried about getting a decent feed in Aruba. Got a taxi from the low rise to the high rise (a desperate looking place), then by chance came across this place. Melt in your mouth grouper, my wife said it was the best fish she ever had. Fresh fish caught every day. Nice sauce, salad and fries included. Get here early to avoid the crowds and get attentive service.

“not good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I did not care for this one at all, it is large and when we were there empty. Yet the employees rather talked to eachother than to be attentive to the guests, happens in more restaurants but beside the point.

The food was not good, it was not fresh, it was flavorless and costly. There are so many restaurants on Aruba why bother going here.

“Little jewel of a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Was pleasantly surprised to find this little place in the mall. Nice atmosphere, great food. I had filet mignon and husband had fettuccini . Not large portions but enough and prepared well with lots of flavor. Would definitely return.

Dear,

Thank you for your review but i think you are talking about Le Bistro. This is our smaller place at paseo herencia mall across the holiday inn hotel.
Taste of Belgium Restaurant is not really a small place and that restaurant is located at the Palm Beach Plaza Mall close to the Marriott hotel and behind the paseo herencia mall.
This restaurant is also owned by us as is Papillon Restaurant across the Radisson Hotel and Cilo City Lounge in town at the Harbour.
But it was great to read that you had a fantastic experience.
We are looking forward to welcome you in one of our places with all a different ambiance but run at the highest standards.
Culinary Regards,
Werner and Peter

“Save your money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Out of all restaurants we visited this trip to Aruba this was the worst service. Food was ok, but for price not worth it. Will not dine there next year.
