    We have been dining at Windows for 15 years - always our Saturday nite dinner while in Aruba - always excellent - Somewhere along the way, we missed the. “Fine Print” and didn’t realize they serve. “BRUNCH” only on Fri & Sat nites- We were shocked upon being sat for our reser and told no other dining options available Sat Eve. At 7:30 where were we going To walk into another restaurant without resets? “Bottomless Mimosa’s” included - who drinks mimosas at nite? My husband does Not drink - so we would never have booked this. $80 per person - it was basically tapas - yes, you could order as many items as you wished - Very small tapas portions. Bottom line - it was awful - I appeared the collected the leftovers from the all inclusive resort and plated them Differently. Very poor quality. The “Tenderloin” was a think slice of grey meat with no flavor - Everything was Luke warm. Desserts were actually a little square approx. 1 inch cube. Our first years in Aruba we stayed at the all inclusive here and this food looked and tasted The same. I’m not sure how anyone can rave about this - apparently people confuse quantity with quality. - i did have 1 glass of the “included” champagne - Again, i have no idea what it was, but who would want all they can drink, I couldn’t even take a second sip. So very. Very. Disappointed - Looking forward to this evening for MONtHS. - I really don’t know if we will return here next trip - If a restaurant Of this quality can put out food this bad, i am worried the “regular” menu may have declined as well. We did express our “surprise” and displeasure Over the menu not being available - You’d think they would have at least “comped” me for 1 glass of real wine. Skip this place - if you want. “Brunch”. Go to one of the buffets - at least the food would be hot and not. $80 / pp

    We didn't realize that making our reservation for a Friday night would limit us to their Friday Late Night Brunch. We have been to Windows before and loved it, we wanted to order from the dinner menu. Surprisingly, the tapas style dinner was great, service amazing, and a beautiful atmosphere!

    We enjoyed the ambience, the view and the staff. I wanted the crab ravioli, but they didn’t have it, so I settled for the mushroom ravioli. It was very good. We really liked the sour dough bread. My husband had the salmon and it was dry and very very salty. We wouldn’t order this again.

    Bone in tomahawk was very tough and lacked flavor. Probably the worst bone in I’ve had. The tuna appetizer was ok as was the bread. We told the staff my son has an egg allergy and they brought him an appetizer that had a mayo based sauce. Fortunately my wife caught it before he ate. All of the restaurants, even the cheaper ones by the beach, have been very good about allergies so this was a bit surprising. View and decor were nice. The wine I couldn’t drink either as it was very acidic. Best restaurant in Aruba so far is Italy in the World.

    Excellent restaurant we went to to celebrate my husbands birthday. They were out of chocolate lava cake which in my humble opinion is completely unacceptable when there are no other chocolate dessert options on the menu.

    This was our second time visiting, and surely not to be our last. We've only opted for the Friday Late-Night Brunch. The service is always excellent, the food amazing, and the experience is one of a kind. And to top it off, the view is beautiful, overlooking the golf course and off to the sunset. Each dish is expertly prepared, and the experience gives those adventurous enough to try all the plates and opportunity to taste everything from escargot to seafood dishes to local favorites, topped with a delicious dessert (or have that at the beginning 😋). This is a reservation worth making!

    2 years ago we dined here to celebrate an anniversary, and we enjoyed our evening. March 2024, party of 10 The atmosphere is lovely. We were celebrating three 60th birthdays. A table-sign was a nice touch. The 3 birthday guests were each served an extra brownie dessert on a decorated plate. The entrees were TERRIBLE. One guest had overcooked pork. Five guests ordered Filet Mignon. NONE were acceptable; strange shapes, lots of fat, each required a sharp steak knife to cut. You might wonder why we didn't question it right away... the manager RAN past our table. He said, "Hi. Everyone enjoying their dinner? Thanks for coming," then just kept walking. Sorry, this restaurant will not be on our list next year.

    The restaurant was empty. Service very slow. They changed the menu from our last visit 2022. Only a few items on the menu. Couldn’t find anything to eat, so we left after salads. Because they are out of the way from Marriott, it took 45 minutes for a taxi.

    When going to Windows, you should allow at least 2 1/2 hours. The menu has wonderful breakfast, lunch and dinner options with almost a dozen appetizers, intermediate entries and half a dozen different main courses. Remember to save room for deserts. Portions are perfectly sizes not to fill you up so you can enjoy more items. We come to Windows every Sunday we are in Aruba.

    Heard great things. Received a bernaise sauce that resembled scrambled eggs. My husband actually asked if there was mac and cheese with our steak ( it was the sauce!) and a creme brûlée that was no where near set.. It was liquid, like they made the anglaise, burned the sugar on top and served that... We did not touch it and the waiter did not even ask if anything was wrong...The fact they served both a scrambled bernaise and a soupy creme brûlée and it actually left the kitchen was more disappointing than anything. There was such a lack of caring we also did not care to give our feedback, paid and left with no intention to return.
