We stopped at TGI Friday's after a terrible day where my bike tire burst and having walked most of the way back to the resort side of the island. I was in a rotten mood and I just wanted an ice cold drink.
Ariel, a server from the Philippines, came outside to serve us because we were so grungy from the walk that we didn't want to sit inside. He happily served my husband the biggest beer I have ever seen (something in the neighborhood of 30 oz) and I got a cool, frosty, strawberry daiquiri. The drinks were great, but Ariel was the real treat. He shared some very entertaining stories and really took good care of us despite the fact the we knew he had to go out of his usual area inside to do it. I didn't have to wait for my second round. My husband was still working on his beer when mine was served. Ariel did it all without missing a beat. We have never gotten excellent service at a TGI in the U.S. but we will definitely return to the one in Aruba in hopes of seeing him next time.
