“Belgium coffee anyone?”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Belgium coffee was an unexpected treat. Liquor w/ whipped cream with strong coffee was delightful.
Went back for breakfast. Belgium waffles was good but overall nothing special. Service was attentive.

“Best beer selection on the island, plus very good food”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Inside the main mall complex where the larger Caribbean Cinemas movie theater is in the Palm Beach Plaza mall. This is NOT in the Paseo Harencia mall with Texas de Brasil, TGI Fridays, and Smokey Joe’s across from the Playa Linda hotel. This is in the mall further north with the larger movie theater, the fancier mall with Salvatore Farragamo, United Colors of Benetton. Restaurant is upscale, no dress code, live music and patio. Pricey but food, service, and ambiance was quite good. Beer selection was limited, no drafts, but they had La Chouffe, Kwak, Duvel, Westmalle Dubbel, Corsendonk, etc. So pretty solid. Served in matching glassware. The steak with roquefort cheese was delicious, Cajun tuna was okay with not so great vegetable accompaniment feeling like frozen veggies. All of the food required salt, which seems to be a pan Aruba problem with the food. Our server was awesome. Pretty fun place to have a romantic dinner.

“Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent menu choices!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Having had excellent quality breakfasts at Taste of Belgium, we decided to try it out for dinner. They had several wonderful options - specials including mussels, surf and turf, etc. With the recommendation of their friendly wait staff (who work wonderfully together), we tried a wine flight along with one of their price fixed 3 course options. The wine flight included 3 whites (French, Italian, and New Zealand) with perfect accompaniments. Each was a delicious hors d'oeurve in its own right and was explained and presented beautifully by our waiter, Sebastian. The red wine flight was equally fun and included wines from Italy, France, and California. The delicious, beautifully presented tapas included home-made goat cheese and a wonderful selection of cheese and fine meats. Sebastian and other wait staff were always available but never hovering. Taste of Belgium is a most welcoming restaurant with fine food, drinks, and reasonable prices. We had great fun and will always remember the excellent food and experience.

“Pretentious and horrible service”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

My girlfriend and I tracked this place down because I wanted to try some good beer and get a few appetizers. Serving sizes are small (yes, even for appetizers), the food was average at best and the service was the worst we had on the island. I had to wait 30 minutes for the check after our dishes were cleared at which time I went and tracked the waiter down myself. The beer was the only good thing about this place. I certainly won't be back.

“Great Beer, Average Food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We actually dined here twice during our trip to Aruba - once for dinner and once for breakfast. They were running a special on their drinks, so we were able to enjoy 2 for 1 beers for dinner. We each sampled one anothers' beer, and they were all very good. Also, pay attention to the alcohol content in these beers, because most of them are between 8 and 10%. You may not need to drink as much as you think you do. The food was nothing spectacular. I had the fillet mignon for dinner and found it to be bland. For breakfast, I had the American breakfast, and it was average as well. Nice "attempt" at a real American breakfast, though. Again, our party of 8 sampled each others' food, and I did not find anything that really grabbed me. On the upside, the service was TOP NOTCH. Just to give an idea of the cost, my dinner bill, which consisted of two adults, two children, and two beers (plus two more for free), amounted to just over $125. Breakfast came to around $60 for the same four people. Our friends' bills were about the same.
