Very disappointed. We visit this restaurant often when we are in Aruba. They got a new chef about a year ago and it has not been the same. We keep giving it a try in the hopes it will get better but no such luck. The service is awful and the food is never cooked correctly. Sadly we will not be returning during our next visit.

Food good enough to just not be hungry after. Our server seemed absent minded. Drinks came unreasonably late. Place had like 3 tables occupied when we got there. Food took it's time too. As a kicker my beer came after we had finished all our plates and were getting ready to ask for check.

Service was island speed, so for me a little slow had to ask waiter to fill water glasses. Cocktails were enjoyed especially the mojito was very good.
My wife and daughter enjoyed the pasta dishes and thought they were excellent. My seared grouper was subpar and my son was disappointed with the beef stew Belgian style

Always a good place to go in Aruba. I had the Grouper, which was a full filet along with mash potatoes and vegetables. My wife had a filet topped with a blue cheese cotton. Both were very good. Of, don’t miss happy hour. A nice Belgian beer selection. Plus, beer and wine are half price during happy hour.

The food and service at the Sunday Brunch are outstanding. Don't be fooled by the small plates, you'll need to pace yourself. All plates we had were wonderfully prepared and presented. Very attentive service too, some of the best we've experienced in Aruba. The only downside was a very noisy table of four that were very disruptive to all in the room.

Singer did not sound like Frank Sinatra as billed, overpriced for a voice that was off key & flat. Food was tasteless & we sent special dishes back. Very disappointed & the only meal on the Island we could not eat. Owner did not think to compensate with dessert.

Bad food, bad chef. Ignore descriptions in the menu. Many ingridients are missing from actual entries and instead dishes are loaded with melted cheese. No taste at all.

Taste of Belgium is one of our favorite dinner spots on the island. The menu is good and varied. The food, itself, is delicious. The service tends to be slow, but this trip was worse than usual. We will try it again and hope their service improves.

Great service and food for the best price around. The Grouper was the best i’ve tasted compared to places nearby. You also can’t be the 50% off all drinks. The beers were perfect for the price!

This was our first time at Taste of Belgium, the Belgian beer list was amazing and the wait staff were knowledgeable about the tastes of the beers. Food was prepared well seasoned nicely, the med rare rib eye came out on a sizzling platter by the time I could eat the steak it was med or more. Able to find vegetarian options which was a plus. Overall a nice experience

Our first dinner off property but we always enjoy dining here whenever in aruba! Extensive menu with reasonable prices with many specials. We decided to do early special and had tomato meatball soup, grouper filet en papilotte and creme brulee. We added their famous belgium mussels in beer as an extra appetizer. Everything was very good, food was fresh and delicious, Mabely, our server, was patient, friendly and attentive, the restaurant was clean, well decorated and inviting! We look forward to returning for another delicious meal!

Daughters burger was very well done tho she asked for medium well. She couldn’t eat most of it. My meal was average. Asked for bread and after waiting 10 minutes waiter came back and said there would be a charge if we got it. We didn’t.

Solid experience - price / quality is great for the area. As an authentic (!) Belgian, I give the “Belgian” food a good, but not a great rating - some of it didn’t quite hit its intended target. Great selection of Belgian Beers!

A Taste of Belgium is our traditional first stop on our annual visit to Aruba. We always order the Crispy Grouper, great!. This year we went twice. If you order the ribs be prepared for a rack of about 12 ribs. At Happy Hour we had $3 cosmos!

A very enjoyable dinner with family. We enjoyed some tasty Belgian dishes- the mushroom soup a was delicious as was the sample platter. I can’t understand why it wasn’t more busy. We really enjoyed our food and the service was fantastic.

They need more space and more servers. Ambiance would've been more lovely if it wasn't so loud and crowded. Also needs more room for people waiting for a table, especially on weekends. The crepes are outstanding but all the other food was not very good.
