This restaurant is really good. The service was outstanding. It is a good idea to order one of their beers or even a beer tasting.
The drink of the day when we went was mango martini and it was absolutely delicious.
Our meal was fantastic, highly recommended.
P.S.: If you are a male, you must check out the men's restroom!! (and then take photos so you can show your female friends that didn't get to see it)

We happened upon this restaurant due to its close proximity to Marriott Surf Club. It was our first day in Aruba, and we were very weary travelers. Dining early (between 530PM and 700PM) will get you a prixe-fixe menu. There are 2 to choose from, one with free Movie Tickets thrown in, and the other with more typical Belgian food items. We did 3 prixe-fixes with movie tix, included a starter salad, entrée, and small dessert.. Two ordered from the menu, one a pasta dish and the other a dinner salad. There is also a kids menu, which the final 2 ordered from. The deinks are good though, with an extensive Belgian/European beer menu to choose from. Food quality/taste was mediocre at best.
For 5 adults, 2 children, with drinks, total was approx. US$219 !! Beware, all food/restaurants in Aruba is extremely expensive!
One other complaint was slow/lackadaisical service. Early on, service was prompt, attentive. As the restaurant filled, it slowed to a crawl, taking 30 minutes for our dessert to arrive!!

Don't bother going anywhere else for breakfast. This place is top shelf. Amazing!

We enjoyed the entire experience.

Taste of Belgium restaurant was excellent. We found the restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a shot. Food was authentically Belgian and VERY good. We had a group of 6, so we were able to try a large variety of things on the menu - cheese croquettes, shrimp croquettes, onion soup, steak frites, Chicken Cordon Blue, ribs, etc. They served the frites with a side of mayo - as it should be. Not a bottle of ketchup in site!
Our first visit to the restaurant was so enjoyable, we made it a point to dine there again on our last nite of our vacation. On our second visit, the waiter remembered us, and even which wine we ordered. The service was very good.
Our desserts consisted of Dame Blanche (yum!) and Lava Cake - both very good.

My wife and I discovered Taste of Belgium during our trip to Aruba in late May (Thank you to TripAdvisor App - don't leave home without it). We went there for brunch. My wife had Pain au poulet épicé (spicy chicken sandwich with marinated, spicy chicken pieces, onions, peppers, mushrooms and a herb mayonnaise). I had 2 home-made waffles with butter, syrup and powder sugar with a side order of bacon. Both dishes were delicious! They have a great Belgium beer menu. Each beer comes in its own unique beer glass. My wife and I each tried different beer and both of us were very satisfied. Our friendly waiter was very helpful in explaining each uniqueness of the beer.

We went back to Taste of Belgium for dinner. We started with an appetizer - Tuna tataki tartar – sprinkled with Cajun herbs and lemon and seared over a hot fire, served on a sesame salad with an orange soy syrup. It's a pretty big portion, so we were able to share. It was good, but I think we would have enjoyed it more if the portion was a bit smaller. More of that in a second... For the main course, my wife ordered Beer-braised ribs – ribs prepared in Belgian beer and herbs, served with frites, a salad and cocktail sauce. I ordered the Grouper – pan-fried filet of grouper served in a creamy sauce of green herbs with vegetables and mashed potatoes. And we tried different types of Belgium beer to go along with our dinner. Again, the portions are huge. Both dishes were good... Of the two main courses, we liked the beer-braised ribs better. Here I go again...we almost wished the portions were a little smaller so that we got the feeling of wanting just a bit more (is that strange?).

Overall, we had a great experience at Taste of Belgium. Good food, great beer, friendly service. The price is very reasonable - lower taxes help. We didn't make a reservation for brunch or for dinner and we had no trouble getting a table, but late May is a slow season in Aruba. We were told that from the Winter to Easter is the busy season in Aruba. We were able to walk from where we stayed (Marriott Ocean Club). We will definitely be back!
