Reviewed October 4, 2012

The portions are huge - too big really, but the food is good. The menu is very large. The staff are friendly.

“Great Margaritas”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This was our last stop after a four mile walk down the beach...only had liquid refreshments, which were great...and you can't beat the view.

Fun atmosphere- right on the beach. All four of us ate something different and all enjoyed it. Friendly and efficient service.

“A Definite Must!!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

If travelling to Ft. Lauderdale you must stop by Aruba Beach Cafe,right on the oceanfront. Go early as it gets extremely busy very early on in the evening!! Great atmosphere, live music, and a good selection of food items. You will not leave hungry that is for sure!!! And make sure you include the famous Bimini Bread with your meal!!! I go to Ft. Lauderdale every year for business and this is always my first stop for supper!! Even when it is busy, food service is still quick and efficient. Very pleasant wait staff as well!! Maybe a bit pricey for some, but worth it for the atmosphere.

“Had a Wonderful Time......”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Just wanted to share that for a rainy, very wet Monday night....this place was very accomodating! The valet guy was very sweet (greeted us with an umbrella) - uquickly got us situated and safely under the canopy lading to the entrance of the restaurant! Awesone service! Upon entering we were warmly greeted - seated within secs! My significant other and I had a lovely dinner, to light soothing live music!

Food was excellent, portion was very reasonable, ambience was great and noise level was very tolerable! Our server was more than wonderful - she was beyond pleasant. Timely checked up on us to make sure all was well and to see if there was anything else she could do to top our evening!

She did - she helped me schemed a little surprise dessert for my honey who's been very successful taking down some giants personally & professionally! Being an overcomer is a blessing - so our server ROCKED as the recommended choice of dessert added to the lovely meal, great service, did us in!

THANK YOU ARUBA BEACH CAFE - SEE YOU GUYS AGAIN SOON!! Just a PERFECT way to have ended a very hectic day for the both of us!
