Very Happy Diner
We were vacationing and always enjoy dining here. Consistently, the food and service are wonderful.

Would go back in a heartbeat.
The Lobster/Crab cakes were excellent. The server thoughtfully split the portion onto two small plates because we informed her that we would be splitting the appetizer. Our two servers could not have been more attentive and polite and still remained unobtrusive.
We opted for outdoor seating which was extremely romantic.
The manager even came around asking about our meal and our stay on the island. While this wouldn't have been surprising a few years ago, it is an act which is in decline.
Only two caveats:
The outdoor seating is dark. While this adds a romantic feel, it makes it hard to read the menu. Two, while my steak was cooked to perfection, it did have a little too much fat on it.
All that being said, it was excellent.

Good Food Great Service
We went here for my sisters wedding rehearsal dinner and everything was fabulous. The waitstaff was able to accommodate our party of 9, including children, and the food was truly delicious. Overall, a great dining experience.

We had a great time at the Sunday Brunch, service was incredible, we were there for 4 hours!!! I gave the food a 4, because we didn't like the ceviche, but it was the only dish we didn`t like of the I think 8, at least, that we had.

The restaurant has a nice wine selection to accommodate most preferences. The food was very well prepared. I had the swordfish special which was very tasty. Their apple pie dessert with caramel sauce is not to be missed!

Very impressive food selection. From the usual breakfast offerings to sushi and pizza. The bottomless mimosas never had a chance to run out-waitstaff constantly refreshed them. A little pricey, but you certainly get your money's worth!

I have been to this restaurant before and always make it a top choice for a quiet dinner whenever I visit. It is one of the best in Aruba.

The food was excellent. I had white clam bisque for an appetizer, my husband had Scallop appetizer that were absolutely HUGE. I had a fettucine, shrimp entree with local sauteed tomatoes and asparagus....yum. Husband had a filet with lobster pairing and it was so tender I could not belive it was beef. Be prepared as it is VERY pricey

Beautiful Location Mediocre Service
The restaurant is beautiful, outdoor seating has a great view and with water surrounding the seating area, swans, fish, and turtles can be seen from each table. Very little lighting outside, but menus are back-lit for easy nighttime viewing. Waitstaff was not bad, but was slow and waiter stood impatiently only a few feet from the table after our bill was presented. Menu was good, with many selections and some daily specials. Wine list was good also, and priced reasonably.
