Service was very, very slow. We ordered a bottle of wine before our appetizers showed up to have with dinner and got it after our dinner showed up. Food was decent, but not worth the $. Also, they would not give us an itemized bill for the night. The server told us we had to walk up to the hostess area to view the charges...very odd. Overall, 4/10.
We loved all of the food! It was incredible. Definitely come here with the mindset of island vibes and a relaxed pace. The ambiance is perfect, but dinner did take quite a while to come out. It was great for us, because we wanted to enjoy a romantic dinner!!
Everything was bad besides being on the beach. Service was terrible and food was also just not good.
Valentines Day dinner by The sunset
The pistachio crusted sea bass was the best I've had in Aruba as well as the chicken saltimbacca. The ambience and saxophone player was amazing. Just an overall beautiful night!!
Great atmosphere & so accommodating to our group. Wonderful dining experience.
We had a wonderful dinner and our server Lucson was fantastic I highly recommend this restaurant if you visit Aruba
Could not have asked for a better experience. Our waiter (and the entire staff) was so entertaining, helpful and attentive. The food was perfection. I had the sea bass and my husband had the Caribbean mac n cheese. So good! Cooked to perfection and the sunset doesn't disappoint. I'd give 10 stars if I could.
Delicious dinner and sunset! Lobster was fresh and the wedge salad did not disappoint. Dessert trio and cappuccino were the perfect end to a wonderful experience
Great food. Service was a little slow but the waiter did keep us updated the whole time. Great place to just sit back and relax and not rush.
Added gratuity without telling us
Extremely disappointed with the experience we had last night at PureOcean. Probably the worse dining experience I’ve had. Made a reservation for 3 at 7:30, got there a tad bit early. Place wasn’t packed. We were seated promptly and got our food menus, but no drink menu. Had to ask at least three other servers. Took minimum of 30 minutes for our first drink. Saw other reviews about the lobster bisque but we tried anyways, and I wish we hadn’t. Very very salty, with little lobster taste. We did not eat our main meals until after 9:30. And after all of that time they were cold!! Overall, the servers weren’t extremely attentive, nor apologetic. They chose to serve 2 big parties, who were seated after us. I’m very disappointed because the environment and the ambiance was very beautiful and for a $200+ dinner wish we would have
Nice dinner date while Ronaldo played a trumpet in the background. Nothing too loud and played about anything we could throw at him. I recommend keeping him a regular.
We loved having our feet In the sand and watching the sunset as we had our dinner. I was with my husband and 3 children. The food and service was great and the ambiance was amazing. We loved it!
The setting is amazing but unfortunately the food is not that good -we ordered lobster bisque, steak frites, scallops- very average. It’s worth going for the outdoor dining on the beach.
I enjoyed the outdoor sunset dinning. The have a tent set up which helps keep the wind under control which is smart. I had their lobster mac n cheese dish which was very good and lived up to the reviews I read about this dish. The service can be slow at times but it's ok if you have a drink and are enjoying the sunset outdoor dinning. Probably better to order a bottle a wine, an appetizer to share and just take your time enjoying the view and later order the entry. Please note a 15% tip is already included in the bill.
The ambiance is high anyway from the beautiful views, and the musician playing several wind instruments added to it.
We had the wine pairing for two special. The surf and turf was scrumptious. It was a fine bottle of Merlot.
Lidia was a fantastic server.
Food was great, ambience was priceless. 3 scallop dinners were lukewarm, sea bass was perfect.
Charging a 15% service charge & expecting an addition 20% gratuity is outrageous, unfortunately I can not return. Its A shame.
Ate there twice during this trip. We have been going to Aruba for years, always make a point to visit Pure Ocean and we will continue to do so whenever we visit Aruba. First to recommend to anyone looking for a good restaurant suggestion.
Greatly enjoyed the dining experience. The food was great. The wait staff was superb
Beautiful sunset view with outdoor dining on the sand (plus undercover option ) Clean with pleasant service Outstanding fresh fish options. Delicious. Did not disappoint
Service was slow, music was a little to loud, and the scallops could have done a little more. Also put table clothes on the tables, without them they look like crap.
Beautiful sunset dinner experience! We celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary and it was terrific. Food was excellent. We’ll be returning every year.
Violin player very good
Food and wait staff mediocre
To enjoy life.
Pure Ocean offers a lavish beachside dining experience. The ocean view, soft lighting coupled with the Aruban sea breeze and a delicious meal created an excellent evening. The live entertainment was awesome as well.
We had an absolutely wonderful experience!
My husband and I both loved our food. We celebrated an anniversary; it could not have been more perfect.
Our waitress was nice and it was a beautiful beach setting, but everything else lacked.
I asked for my steak to be cooked medium. My first steak came out over cooked and then when it came out the second time it was raw. I sent it back and didn’t eat in the end because by the time I would have gotten my third, everyone else would have been done with dessert.
The potato stacker appetizer was the best part of the meal. My husband’s steak was bland with maybe two mushroom slivers and a crumble of blue cheese. We ate at so many amazing restaurants this week that this was a HUGE disappointment.
Then we were explained about the service charge vs. the actual tip which is just downright ridiculous. We’re paying their salary? I feel bad for the staff there.
The bathrooms were like saunas and there were dirty mops all over the bar area.
There are tons of unbelievable restaurants to visit while in Aruba, this sadly was not one of them.
Loved it! Great outdoor beach sideicstion and food was fresh and delish!
Simply breath taking and amazing!!!!!! It definitely was a unique and remarkable experience. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was outstanding
The view, the service, the food..absolutely breathtaking. I would highly recommend to others. Can’t wait to go back!!
Very nice place to eat and chill. Food is great. Nice place to watch and enjoy the sunset
We should’ve known when we arrived on time and were asked if we had a “reservation”. Our table was not set, even though only six of the twenty plus tables were occupied. Our server, Lidia, was very accommodating, almost overbearing. Looking back, she must have known what was coming. The “famous” Caribbean mac&cheese was mixed with overcooked and tough seafood . The Pistacio Crusted Sea-bass was so salty, it was inedible, and removed from our bill. The texture of the fish resembled being frozen? Inexplicable. Scallops were ok. The worst meal of our trip to Aruba.
The server, Christian was prompt and courteous. Ambience great with fantastic sunset. Food great. Kitchen was slow. That’s second time that has happened.
The view was amazing. Food was great. Service terrific.
We made a reservation for outdoor dining and arrived at the time specified. Upon arrival they told us to wait a few minutes while they put tables together for our group of 8. We made a reservation plus there were only 3 other small groups dining so they were not busy at all but had plenty of wait staff on hand, our table should have been ready. We got seated and 5 minutes later our drink order was finally taken. Drinks and bread were brought out and then the real wait began. We waited and waited and finally after 20 minutes we had to asked another server if we could order. He disappeared and a few minutes went by and our server finally arrived and took our order. The first 4 meals came out in a reasonable amount of time and then 3 or 4 minutes later 3 more came out and then 5 or so minutes later the last meal came out which was Mac and cheese, probably the easiest one to make. By the time the last meal arrive most of us were nearly done eating. It took nearly 10 minutes to get all of our meals to the table. We wanted to wait but the food was getting cold. The food was just OK but very expensive. Portions were small compared to other places we had eaten. We will not go back nor recommend PureOcean to others.
2 hrs till main meal...then fish not cooked....😐
Food was excellent, and priced reasonably for a nice dinner on the island. Romantic setting for a sunset dinner. Service was good, could have been a little faster with drink orders, but we were on "Aruba Time". Would highly recommend.
Amazing all around- the view was spectacular , the service was impeccable food was stellar. Will be back on our next trip for sure!
The best part was the ambiance. Service was VERY slow - only 12 tables filled and they gave our order to someone else. Food was average. We won’t be going back, but others might like to sit on sand and wait for 2 hours for a meal. Educate your waitstaff.
