“Quaint little "pub" on the beach”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This was a great little beach bar. Nice and open, essentially one giant patio! who doesn't want that? We were seated quickly, drinks came just as fast. We asked for a pitcher of water at the table (we had celebrated bachelor/bachelorette parties the night before) and were told it wasn't something they usually did but they would ask. Not a problem at all! An icy pitcher of water and our meals to follow shortly after. Bear in mind when going to a beach bar/restaurant, that you are on an island and things are at a slower, more relaxed pace. If you are on a timeline, it's probably not your best option. It was a great place to relax and enjoy lunch before taking the Jolly Pirate tour :)

“Just ok for lunch on our recent trip”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

I was a little bit disappointed in this place on our latest trip. The food was just ok and the service was REALLY slow even though the place was almost empty. Nice location but that's about it this time around.

“Gorgeous setting, Excellent service!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Our experience at Moomba Beach restaurant was wonderful. In fact, my husband and I enjoyed it so much, we dined there two of our four nights in Aruba. Sunset and table on the beach! The food was very good, especially the Grouper. The service from a lovely young woman named Romy
was outstanding!

“Not bad...”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

My husband and I had dinner here the night that we arrived in Aruba. The atmosphere is great, with seating right on the beach and live music. The food was fine with the exception of the "tuna", which were are pretty confident was Bonita (we avidly fish for tuna at home and are very familiar with both fish). Its very americanized, so there are plenty of familiar options in terms of food. Not the best restaurant that we went to, but certainly not the worst.
