While Mediterranean at heart, it is inspired by Caribbean ingredients and chef Ever de Peña his passion for avant-garde fusion ideas. With seating in the garden terrace or around the tropical pool, the experience is enchanting and all menu items are extremely enticing. Let the chef surprise you with his 4-course tasting menu accompanied with a great selection of wines from the Mediterranean and the Americas.

“Calming atmosphere, great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Stayed at next door Bucuti and were looking for a late dinner option. We had a calming, quiet table next to the pool with beautiful flowers nearby. I had the land & sea and my steak was great and the shrimp were the best I ever had. They let me sub for blue cheese mash potatoes and they were to die for. Service was slow for them not being busy but service is slow everywhere in Aruba - sometimes on purpose and sometimes not. This was one of my favorite meals on our trip.

“Not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were looking forward to a Mediterranean experience but the menu really wasn't. The food was ok but nothing special.Service was good. Pleasant to sit around the pool. Not inexpensive.

“Pretty Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

At our hotel - so we chose it for convenience. Had excellent grouper one night, Excellent mussels with linguini. My wife had overcooked tuna on one occasion (which perhaps she should have sent back - though the server didn't ask how she liked her tuna and she didnt say - rare/seared) Service was excellent. Some nice very fairly priced wines.

“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Nice location on the beach. Food was average. Service was sweet but slow. Have to hunt them down to get a refill on the drink. Both of us felt sick after the cerviche. After 3 nights in Aruba, I realized that restaurant service was universally slow and unprofessional so nothing unique about this place.

This restaurant Iis in the Mancabo resort. The food is ok but nothing special. Service also is underwhelming.
