“Pretentious dining”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Ate here on Christmas day.
Found it a little strange that they had reindeer on the menu
The waiter gave us attitude when we did not order wine.
Not a place I would go back to

“Great ambiance AND great food”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

After reading so many positive reviews, my husband and I made reservations for 'bed dining' and we had a wonderful time. My husband was a little skeptical at first, but we quickly settled in for a romantic evening. We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary on the last night of our trip to Aruba - couldn't have picked a better place to wrap up our trip! Stephan, our waiter was very efficient and friendly. The food was amazing. We had escargot, two fish dishes and creme brûlée for desert. Very classy - we'll be back!

“Didn't get the hype”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Before going to Aruba we were told that we had to eat at the Screaming Eagle. The reviews we saw all suggested the same. The inside of the restaurant is quite lovely with white curtains and lounge beds giving it a very unique vibe. However, the night we were there a private party was being held inside so we were on the outdoor patio. They tried to seat us up against a wall and when we requested one of the tables on the outside railing they seemed a bit put off as if that would be too much effort to set a table. The service was average, nothing special and nothing horrible. They seem to be trying a little too hard with lots of "tableside" options where they prepare different things right at your table though I really didn't get the point. The food was good though not great. We had many other much better dinners on the island.

The indoors part of the restaurant, which includes beds, was over air conditioned with loud music. This disappeared on the porch were the food was excellent and the service just average for this level restaurant.

“Unique lounge bed experience - also for vegetarians”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We just spent a wonderful night relaxing in one of Screaming Eagle's lounge beds, enjoying affordable champagne, delicious food and a very attentive staff. Contrary to what some might expect the lounge bed experience feels completely natural and can be big fun for both adults and kids. Kudos to management for this innovative setup and chef Erwin for a creative menu that includes several original vegetarian dishes - not so easy to find on Aruba. Highly recommended!
