I loved the aspect of meeting my fellow diners. They encouraged this interaction from the getgo so when it came to the meal itself it was very, very enjoyable.

Fun experience and the chef was great. Very personable. Fun to see the food cooked and prepped and plates in front of us. Service was a little off with the head guy not wanting to open additional bottles of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio vs the wine they were serving with the pairing for dinner. We chose not to do the pairing and he brought out the pairing Chardonnay and a completely different wine than the Pinot Grigio and asked if okay. We both said yes but then we’re surprised to see we were up charged for those two glasses of wine. We also started about 40 min late and they had oversold our table by two people so we were a little less comfortable (and delayed since the final four people that put us two over were very late). Fun experience but service was off.

My husband and I had a fabulous meal on Friday night (August 31). The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. It was a lovely experience. We especially enjoyed the shrimp bisque and the pork belly. All the food was very tasty and creatively presented. My husband has an intolerance to red meat and they accommodated him with a delicious substitute.

The champagne reception on the rooftop, upon arrival, with a beautiful sunset started the 3 hour experience. The food & wine pairing was exceptional! It was the best anniversary dinner ever. Enjoyed the chef explaining how each course was prepared and the artistic plate arrangement. The small intimate area made for a very special evening .

Such a great experience! When you arrive you are immediately introduced to your family for the night (the other guests) and begin socializing and have the opportunity to catch a gorgeous Aruba sunset while enjoying some Prosecco. The restaurant is intimate and engaging and the staff is fantastic! Finally, the food was outstanding!!! The thought, skill and care that went into each dish made each a true experience and a treat.

Bottom line: Do it! Make a reservation and enjoy fine food and wine and a wonderful evening! Will definitely be back next trip to Aruba.

Excellent food - inspired by traditional island dishes it was a fantastic mix of flavors. Chef was great at explaining both the traditional dish and the interpretation they presented. Wine pairing was also phenomenal as the dishes pulled interesting notes from each wine that you may not have noticed by sipping the wine independently. You eat in a large communal area and get to know other guests (max 16 people) as you all mingle. There were 9 cancellations or no shows my night, so if you can’t get a reservation I strongly recommend calling to see if you can get in last minute. You won’t regret it!

This was a superior night, in every way! It was basically a private dinner for up to 16 guests. We were 13 that night. It is a prix fixe, 8 course, dining experience.Each course was beautifully presented and tasted out of this world. There were ingredients that I am not normally a fan of but were delicious because of the way they were incorporated into the dish. There were probably a minimum of 8 flavorful ingredients in each dish. Really superb! We also chose the wine pairing which was worth it! If you are in Aruba this is a must go restaurant!! Oh and they send you home with a divine cupcake for the next morning ❤️

The host Nathan was very good at getting everyone to mingle & he is able to remember everybody’s name. The food is authentic Aruban cuisine. A very unique & thoroughly enjoyable evening.

I wrote a review on trip advisor with a play by play on this. The team is awesome and it’s just an outstanding gastronomical experience. We have done these table experiences and it’s up to you how much social interaction you want. On this one my wife and I pretty much kept to ourselves as it was our anniversary.

Scenic view, romantic and a tasting menu that becomes very expensive when matched with their wines. Try $470 for two!! The location and atmosphere, with 3 infinity pools is breathtaking . Nathan does a great job beginning to end, but limited to 16 dinner guests and a mix of different personalities. When in Aruba, I probably will not repeat.

Found this place on Trip Advisor. It had 5 out of 5 stars. So I booked it for a proposal dinner and they did not dissappoint. When we arrived a the location we didn’t really know where to go or what to expect. But we were promptly greeted by our host and lead to the rooftop to join the other guests for some champagne. After a few glasses of champagne we were lead into the Kitchen Table where we were greeted by the chef and his team, and the journey began. Every course was incredible. About half way through we had brief intermission on the porch. That is where I saw my opportunity. Without thinking, I dropped down on one knee and asked the girl of my dreams to marry me. She cried. I cried. The other guests cheered. Then, we returned to finish the meal.

Este restaurante da en el clavo (muy atinado) al llevar una experiencia de Chef's table entretenida donde utilizan estilos de cocina local adaptadas a su concepto.

Fue una excelente experiencia. Hicieron un brindis en honor al cumpleaños de mi esposa y cada comensal es tratado con mucha atención y respeto.

The Kitchen Table is an experience. The food is outstanding and you get to know the other guests over champagne before the dining starts. We made some nice friends that we met up with throughout the rest of our trip.

It is very expensive, but worth it when you consider the quality of the food, the experience, and the fact that it's roughly 3-4 hours long.

Can't miss dining experience. Eight courses, seven wines, each flight better than the prior. We were a solo pair. Of the other 14 diners, all but two were fellow New Jerseyans. Comeradie was an unexpected benefit. Best advice is to take a cab because you'll feel better and safer consuming all the wine. Food is fabulous. Menu changes every month. I'll repeat - Can't Miss!!
