I love Chicken & Lobster. The service is top notch & the food is delicious. The live music is also lovely. Great for couples or families, even small children. We will be back during our next trip to Aruba!

Checkin was easy and fast. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We ordered cocktails, cuba libre and cosmopolitan, weren’t very good, better off sticking with beer. But. To be fair I did mention that the cosmo was not good and they offered to rectify but I declined. Food wise ordered the grouper almodine which was cooked prefectly but the rostissere chicken was dry. Maybe just having an off day.

Great menu - but the food didn’t live up to its description- had the lobster thermidor but wasn’t really anything close to that. Wasn’t bad just not really good. The shrimp in a pot was about the same. The chicken wings were very good. In short go for the chicken and ditch the lobster. Solid service

The food is incredible, but the best part of the experience is the staff. Juan, the manager, is a server every night and is incredible. He works with the rest of the staff to keep his customers and his staff happy.

When he recommends something on the menu, try it. You wont be disappointed.

Food was not very tasty... I wouldn't recommend this for dinner. Maybe they do a better job with breakfast but their dinner was not very good. Thumbs down. Do yourself a favor and walk over to Smokey Joes instead. Very good barbecue...

We both had the Chicken & Lobster. Overall, very good. The lobster was tender and not overcooked, and the BBQ chicken was just right. Whatever their issue were earlier in the year, they've overcome them. The service was attentive and friendly.

We arrived for our reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter arrived promptly and took our drink order. Returning with our drinks, he described the specials and gave us some time to enjoy our drinks before returning to take our order. My chicken and lobster was cooked just right. My husband's Grouper was hot and flaky.

Chicken and lobster had amazing food but the menu was limited. The prices were a little high but less than most of the resort restaurants. We enjoyed the lobster. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

I ordered the special expecting it to be phenomenal. The ambiance is great but the food is rather bland. Lobster seemed overcooked. I would've been better off ordering a salad like my husband.

Food took 50 minutes to arrive as other tables seated after us got their food. The owner took “a round of drinks” off the bill. None of us had alcohol, so we didn’t pay for two cokes, a sprite and an iced tea—gee, thanks for the concession!

Lobster was meh and chicken was just ok.

I expected a lot more.

Don’t pass this up!! The food was great ,as well as the service . We all thoroughly enjoyed our dishes. The fish was fresh, the chicken juicy, and the ribs were off the bone good. I hope they continue to do well. Until next time... thank you😊

Had the Lobster with Caesar Salad and Grilled Chicken. The Rock Lobster was juicy, seasoned and nice char. The chicken was a bit dry, inclusing the thigh pieces. Although seasoned, portions were rationed.
I forgot to ask for dressing on the side and needed to, as the mayo based dressing drowned the Romaine.
The bread cubes comes with whippedTruffle butter, which was pungent but I don't like truffles.
The atmosohere is FUNNNNN & lively! The staff, from the owner to crew, bring a personalized good time to everyone who enters, without being overbearing.
Would return.

Love the location of this place and it has both enclosed and outside seating . We started off with the tomato soup which was very good and the grandma’s chicken soup that was OK. I had the half rotisserie chicken which was truly outstanding with mashed potatoes and gravy which were excellent. We ordered Mojitos for cocktails and they were below average the service was very good they are very polite and the manager Juan stopped by the table to check on everything . Aldo the waiter was terrific !

Although the service was very good, I didn’t care much for the side dishes which kind of put a damper on the dinner. Main fish dish was fine. Filet mignon cooked fine but lacked flavor and the cut was just ok. The mashed potatoes tasted like a non whipped baked potato. Mac and cheese reminded me more of a macaroni salad.
Ambiance - located outside and in front of the Playa Linda Hotel on a deck located above the driveway which was ok. Convenient walking on main strip.
Live music playing which was a plus.
Had coupon for free margarita which was on the bill but removed charge when shown.
Just an okay meal for me.

I do not typically post reviews. But as a public service, thought it would be helpful. The people at this restaurant are very nice and service is great. The problem is that the food is awful and it would be a waste of your time on this beautiful island to spend time trying to eat at this place. Shocking that they can ruin a simple dish like chicken, or lobster, or soup, or whatever else. Beware.
