    Nefti was a superb server! She was very patient with all our questions about the food. She was very detailed and accommodating. The chef’s selection of menu items had us all swooning. We enjoyed numerous appetizers shared among eight of us. Two kids 12 & 15 had no complaints :) so that is really saying something. The lomo was some of the best. The shrimp entree was worth a repeat visit as well. Don't even get me started on the sourdough!

    Scallop appetizer was savory with a touch sweet while tasting as good as it looks. The four of us enjoyed beef tenderloin, pork chop, duck, and lamb chop special. This is the best meal we had all week and Nancy, our server, made affective recommendations and explained some of the nuances of the menu. We give this Restaruant our highest recommendation! With giving Nancy, the best server award!!

    The food was AMAZING!!! Was there while on vacation with my husband and another couple. We ordered so many appetizers and they were all soooo delicious. The service was amazing. The only thing I would do different next time would be sit inside because the wind was a bit intense. I am aware that Aruba is windy but it felt a bit like a wind tunnel. I’m so looking forward to dining here when I come next year on vacation!
