The food was very good and we enjoyed it, but the service was not so good. We got our bread and had a slice before anyone asked if we want cocktail or water. Apparently only your waiter can do the drinks, even after I asked 2 other people. When he got to us I told him don’t mess with the drinks ...he didn’t get it

Excellent service and food. They treated us like we were the only ones there. Great setting on the beach. We had the sea bass and Caribbean Mac and cheese which are their specialties. They were delicious and reasonably priced.

We had our dinner beachside, but not in the sand at my husband's choosing. I was very surprised that a sunset time was available, but we had a very enjoyable dinner. The food was awesome and our server was very sweet. Perhaps it was not as busy since it is a little further down, but I highly recommend it. My husband had the tomahawk pork chop and I had the Mac & cheese. Both of us had the lobster bisque first which I thought was great, but my husband felt it was a tad too salty. The drinks and wine were also very good. Would absolutely come back again.

Mediocre food at best. The meat was actually much much better than any of the seafood we had. Surprising because of the name. Items that were on the website menu were not on the restaurant menu.

-Service charge 15% was added automatically on bill, but waiter made it clear they wanted more!
-Full of ants at base of beach table.
-How come Pure Ocean restaurant of Divi ArubaPhoenix is not Aware of same company Divi golf resort discounts to its Divi golf Eagle members?

Great food on a quiet beach with perfect sunset. Service was very attentive. The singer had a nice voice and picked a selection of soft rock we found hard to not sing along. Prices were typical for high end Aruban restaurant. We had pistachio crusted sea bass and grouper. Both dinners were very nicely cooked and presented. A memorable evening. This made our short list of restaurants to return to next year.

The ambiance and views were amazing however do not eat there you can eat somewhere else and have the view etc.

The food was absolutely disgusting, scallops were still raw and the lobster was old and tough not fresh at all. Most people were leaving during the meal. Bad experience overpriced , sad.

The food is always good here; however, we had a coupon for free drinks, and it took talking to 3 different people before they would honor it. What’s that about?

While they certainly accommodated us in our request for “first row” dining during sunset...somewhat disappointed that they didn’t have the sea scallops as stated on the menu and VERY disappointed in the appetizer. The portion was smaller than last time we got it and the presentation was just okay. Our 35th Anniversary was interrupted by massive swarm of mosquitoes...no ones fault but still had to for go how beautiful sunset experience despite the lovely hostess bringing insect repellent. So...not the same experience we had last year.

This is a great restaurant with excellent food and ambiance. We have enjoyed a number of sunset dinners here and the staff is always friendly. For some reason on this visit, things seemed to be a bit chaotic with very slow service coming from the kitchen and bar areas. However, this one average experience will not prevent me from going back or recommending it to others. We will definitely dine at PureOcean again on our next visit to Aruba!

The breakfast buffet was a very good value compared to other places we tried in Palm Beach. The foods at the hot stations were prepared well. The cold food was fresh. There was also a made-to-order egg station. The service staff was friendly. I would recommend.

The hostess was quite loud and obnoxious and actually told us if we chose to stay with our request for outdoor seating (it had rained on and off throughout the day but was looking like it was clearing for sunset), we would have to stay out in the rain. I thought this was odd to say, but figured they must’ve been fully booked that evening. To my shock, there were 5 tables occupied the entire time we were there! When we sat, our chairs were crawling with ants so we had to brush them off just to sit! The other major problem that actually ruined our time was the amount of flying/crawling bugs around us, made worse by the plastic lanterns that were lit up for ambience, but actually attracted what seemed to be all the bugs in Aruba! Yuck! Even after the waiter took away the lantern, the bugs persisted. We considered taking our food to go, but decided to stick it out. Our waiter was kind and the food was ok. But we don’t plan on a repeated visit the next time we’re in town, which is disappointing because this place has potential.
