The food was amazing. The service was very friendly and quite efficient, with everyone being well informed about the menu and the preparation. The check was very reasonable, especially for the quality and quantity. Chef/Owner Urvin Croes could easily compete with any of the great chefs in the world in imagination, taste and presentation. He's a quiet, unassuming, talented chef who just loves to make great meals and live in his home country of Aruba with his wife Mary Ann, who helps run the place.. Even his bartender shares his vision. Eric has a degree in molecular chemistry and designs awesome drinks that I guarantee you've never had before, and complement the meals.
My wife and I shared the larger tasting menu, and it was plenty of food. It also included items we never would have ordered, and those especially surprised us in how incredible they were.
I live in New York, the land of a thousand great restaurants, and am well regarded by my friends and colleagues as a consummate foodie who travels the world and loves a great meal.
Like many people on a vacation, you hope to find some great restaurants, but mostly the food is just OK. White is spectacular, and might just make us choose to return to Aruba really soon.
White is located near most of the high rise hotels in a shopping area off Palm Beach. While an unusual location for a 4 star restaurant, it is very convenient and is only a 5-10 minute walk from the Westin, Hyatt, Radisson, etc.
