“Aruba's was sooooo Yummylicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

My girlfriend and I were seated outside. The sun was setting! We ordered the goat cheese salad. Bimini bread and crab cakes to start. Then we shared the sesame crusted salmon which was more than enough for the two of us. The food was all so fresh and delicious! The service was great and the atmosphere was just lovely! Thanks Aruba we will be back soon!

“A beautify dinner and evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Wow, a fun place with great great food. Went on a Friday night. Major hors d'oeuvres with a drink purchase. We then ordered an appetizer and meal ... shared between the two of us. We were stuffed. We will return. It's on the beach by the ocean, great view.

“Great view of beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We had lunch here one day. Clams and Crabcake sandwich were great. There is a great view of the beach and lots of outdoor seating. We had a very attentive waiter named Sean who was very informative about the area. They have a band I think everyday to get you in the Island spirit. It's packed on the weekends.

“Worst Service Ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We decided to try Aruba`s based on reviews on this site. We went in on a Tuesday at about 6:30pm. It was busy but not crazy busy. The gal at the hostess desk asked us to follow her to our table. She saw that I was using a walker. She ran ahead of us, weaving around tables and chairs. It was not possible to keep up as I had to have other guests get up, move their chairs and a few had to move their tables. She took us to the very back of the restaurant, the farthest table from the restaurant entrance right beside the bathroom. It was so close to the bathroom when the door opened it was just inches from the table....not a nice `atmosphere` for super. There was no place to put my walker......my hubby was so ticked off that we just turned around and left. Shame on you Aruba`s !!!! Went up the road and had wonderful service and a wonderful meal at Athenas.

“This place rocks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Great venue for a few early beers after a hard day on the beach.
The live music helps this place rock from early doors and has a great view of the beach,sea and pier
