To put it simply this is fine dining matched by perfect ambience. Wait staff superb and chef could make it anywhere in world. Had fish in a champagne sauce could have licked the plate clean. Lava cake for dessert.

They had lost my reservations, and had I not had a copy filed away, they probably wouldn’t have honored them. To long time for waiter to come over and take drink orders. My Bronzino sea bass was a half a fish, overcooked and over priced for a half a fish. Nice presentation though. Would give it second thoughts about returning.

Very nice restaurant. Ambiance is simply wonderful. Food and preparation was delightful. The service was slow and sometimes lacking. Our waitress kept apologizing for the service, but still lacked table preparation, water, bread food and wine all handled by separate servers. Small attention stuff like steak knife missing, pouring bottled water or wine during the meal. Very interested at bill presentation to have us fill out our comment card (?). Overall, we liked restaurant and would go back. Maybe they will have read our comments. We tipped well.

Everything and everyone were perfect.
The Corvina was exquisitely prepared, with many individual flavors coming through as the meal was eaten. Definitely our best meal on the island and maybe in the states!
Cheers to the chef and Camilo!!!

Strange combinations of food like the chef isnt a cgef but a home cook trying to make things seem fancy. Goat cherse with tuna? Just no. The wine list is extensive and impressive, yet they served us a $200 bottle of wine in cheap thick wine glasses... how would the person buying a $2000 bottle if wine feel?? Touristy, gimmicky. A "No".

My husband and I had a delightful evening at Screaming Eagle in Aruba last night. The ambiance was lovely- a beautifully decorated modern bar flanked one wall surrounded by nicely set tables- and a second terraced area out double doors for outdoor dining near the sea. Our service was excellent- Audrey our server made lovely recommendations from the chef and our needs were always met- even before we asked. The appetizer we chose was new to the menu and the chef personally brought it out. It was delicious. The remainder of the meal was equally good through a delightfully presented dessert. Nice job! We’ll be back next time we’re in Aruba!

I loved that the Chef came out to the table to serve our dinner, thank you Chef. The wait staff was somewhat good, my husband had an empty wine glass almost throughout the dinner, there was no lemon and drawn butter for the fish dish hmm...

We heard about this place while watching a YouTube video about foodie spots in Aruba. It looked so cool - you can reserve a bed and eat dinner in bed. Such a fun concept - we loved it! The food was outstanding! I got the scallops and my partner got the lobster - neither of us were disappointed! We also got two appetizers and desert. It was an expensive meal, but worth it to experience this unique concept and eat some yummy food. It’s a really fun place to go on a date. The only reason I rated 4 vs 5 stars is our server was pretty inexperienced and made a few small mistakes throughout our time with her. She was adorable and sweet and very attentive so we didn’t mind at all. I think maybe since we had a late reservation that some of the more experienced servers had been cut and she was left to take on some of the bigger tables. But she hung in there and did pretty well. We really appreciated her positive attitude! And the service was fast which was another added bonus!

If there was ZERO start , i would give it .
From the moment we get into restaurant to the end were all unprofessional. 8 pm appointment was seated at 8:45 . Many 8 pm appointments were waiting by the entrance not knowing why they cant be seated .

Screaming Eagle name fits the restaurant well bcs our waitress was screaming at us . No its not a joke , at one moment i asked her to lower her voice , then she lectured me how lucky I should feel bcs many restaurants are closed on January 1 st and their restaurant is open . How she should be celebrating at home with her family but she is working .
We were blown away with everything.
Never will go back and wont recommend it to anyone .
There are soo many nice restaurants in Aruba , its not worth to spend ur hard earned money in this restaurant. Go somewhere else , at least you will treated better .

Great food in walking distance from our hotel. The waiter was very attentive and sweet. We enjoyed the king clip blackened dish and the Portobello mushroom dish. Both had amazing flavors and were very filling. The chef is quite talented. We opted to eat outdoors. There is indoor eat in bed dining and regular dining. We enjoyed the outdoor option.

The ambiance was good. We sat on the patio. The server was very nice, but two big groups came in and the water runner and hostess served us mostly. It took 45min to get our food from the time we ordered. My wife got the scallops and they were severely undercooked. Luckily they removed those from the final bill. I had the chicken breast and baked potato. They were both pretty good. Ultimately we were very disappointed because we had heard such great things, even from people back at our hotel. Maybe we were an anomaly based on they had to deal with two large groups.

Very good quality food. Chef made sure to include differ textures and different flavors in every bite. So far, the best dinner after 6 trips to island.
The only down side is not to include wine bottles in the around $40-50 price range. By the glass, one selection at $10, then jumps to $19. Too bad!
