The food was good. The penne bolgnesse was good. The shrimp carbonara was very tasty. Prices were high even for Aruba standards. Service was spotty at best. Nice but seemed like he had 50 tables to cover when it was fairly slow.

We ate here for the carribean carnival night. The show was fun and restaurant was beautiful. We ate at the buffet so we could eat then watch the show. We would go agsin but would eat off the menu this time around. The view was beautiful. Service was friendly but slow.

For the past few years, our last day on the island starts with a wonderful breakfast at La Vista Restaurant. A great buffet with more than enough to choose from, which is especially nice if you have young children to feed.

An excellent value when feeding a family of six...something for everyone. The International Buffet was wonderful. Pizza for the kids and a various assortment of international dishes for the adults. Fed a family of six for under $200 with tip. Highly recommended.

Was not happy that a lot of the fish that they’ve always had in the past was no longer offered, such as crab claws. Was very pricey per person for what was offered. Many chafing dishes were not filled and had to wait in longer lines for pasta and ice cream as seemed like less workers .

Not at all what we expected from the restaurant description and the reviews. More like the type of buffet you’d find on a cruise shop, not a place to have a nice dinner out. We had a lovely server, but I would not go back .

Good food, good value, good service, but the aggressive birds outside are most annoying and frankly give an unsanitary experience.

The surroundings were excellent, but sitting outside is not good unless you like birds flying around and annoying as you eat. One person MUST sit at the table and "shoo" the birds away or they will land and eat whatever is there!

Very disappointed in this restaurant. We didn't sit outside because it was only buffet there. We wanted to eat from the menu which we found was very limited. There are so many excellent restaurants in Aruba that we wouldn't go to La Vista again.

Great buffet! Sushi, pasta bar (custom made pasta dishes), pizza, seafood (crab craws, shlimp, mussels, etc.), carving station, and then all the nightly specials in a round serving station. 4 Star food. Very friendly. Iced tea was good. Didn’t get drink drinks. Sunset was gorgeous. Outdoor seating was Nice!

Recommended.

We came here the first night of our vacation since we’re staying at the Marriott and it seemed convenient. It was Thursday night which is apparently a special buffet night. We told them we would like to order off the menu and the hostess said that’s fine and lead us to our seats. We noticed there was seating available outside and asked if we could sit there, she said okay and we sat outside with the menus. A few minutes later our server came over and told us we can’t order the menu outside, and they outside is buffet only. We explained that we told the hostess we wanted to order off the menu and she sat us out here. The server was obviously irriatated and mumbled something that we didn’t catch. It was awkward so we offered to leave so that it wouldn’t cause an inconvenience. She seemed annoyed but said that it was fine and we could order off the menu outside. The rest of the dinner was subpar service, if you want to call it that. Only came by to take orders or drop off items. She never even smiled until we were walking out and she said bye. We spent more money on entrees than we would have on the buffet so not sure why we were treated so negatively. Definitely a bummer and will not be back even though we’re staying at the Marriott for 2 weeks.

Stopped in for dinner before the show. Nice outdoor seating on the veranda overlooking the beach. They have a buffet (which we weren't interested in) and a small menu of about 6 appetizers, 6 sandwiches, 6 salads/soups and 6 entrees. They accommodated me by making my Caesar salad with steak and it was good. My wife's Tortellini were OK. The service could have been a bit better. While they constantly filled our waters, the server could have checked back a bit more. Overall, average place with prices par for being a Marriott on an island.

Food is never good here. Has a stale not fresh taste. The butter served with rolls was actually turned, meaning the fat had separated from the cream. Food is just not up to Marriott standards.

When will they get bathrooms not shared with the pool? Or perhaps keeping them clean?
