“Like Thanksgiving ought to be”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I will admit this was my first experience with a Brazilian steakhouse, so part of my pleasure with this place might have just been excitement at the concept.

It's a flat price - $45pp, which is unlimited salad bar, soups and meat. The salad bar has like 60 things on it, including things like pasta and deviled eggs. But if you are loading up at the salad bar you came to the wrong restaurant.

The staff bring around like 15 different cuts of meat - filet mignon, garlic steak, leg of lamb, ribs, etc - and give you as much as you want. They are more or less continually circulating, so there is always more coming at you. You sit there and eat all the meat you want, and they just keep offering until you tell them to stop.

Not all of the meats were equally well-prepared, but there were easily 6 cuts that were seasoned and cooked perfectly and we ate like medieval kings until we weren't sure we would be able to stand up and walk out.

If you are an avowed carnivore, come eat here. The overall experience was fantastic.

“Another Home Run for Amazonia”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I dined there twice on our trip to Aruba last year and had it on our list of restaurants that we could count on for dealing with her gluten-free dietary constraints. Last night we made the trek from Oranjestad up to Palm Beach for our carnivore extravaganza, and it did not disappoint. My wife was delighted to learn that the pumpkin soup on the salad bar was safe for her to consume, and frankly, "blown away" that she could also eat the cheese rolls that were served with our meal. She was somewhat suspicious however because she said they tasted too good to be gluten-free. Bottom line, the meats were superb, the salad sensational, and the roasted pineapple to die for. We will be making another trip to Amazonia before heading back home.

A hearty "well done" to the entire staff at Amazonia!

“Excellent food- a bit pricey”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

As expected, the meat was excellent and a great variety. The salad bar was outstanding as well. fresh, with lots of variety. The wine list was a little thin. In addition, two of the wnes that we selected were not available. This restaurant includes a service charge in the bill. As with all restaurants in Aruba, make sure you check the bill to understand which do and which do not include the service charge. If you are a owner at onne of the Marriott timeshares, be sure to ask for the owners discount.

“Good Place if you Love Meat”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

I went here with my parents and brother. My dad and brother absolutely loved it because they're big meat eaters. My mom and I were a little less impressed. The salad bar was great, but we didn't eat enough food to make it worth the price.
If you can never have enough steak this place is for you. If you like a more balanced meal, then this place may not be for you.

“The food is great!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

So the food is very very good. The meat is juicy and well cooked. Salad bar is ok. Staff is nice. But the price is maybe too high.
