About the restaurant
Next to the 'Old Mill' in Aruba you'll find a unique new restaurant, 'The Journey'. Michelin star trained chef Patrick van der Donk (old Amuse Bistro) has made a very intimate chef's table concept.

Credit card information will be required in order to hold reservation as well confirmation by phone .

Not your usual bar seating set-up! Here you are able to dine at you own separate tables and still have a view of the chef creating your 5-course meal for a max of 20 guests per evening.
Price $130 per dinner and $80 for the optional wine paring, small bar available.
The evening starts on our cozy lounge with delicious hors d'oeuvres and bubbles, inside at a small and stylish set-up the chef will prepare every dish in front of his guests taking time to invite his guests over for a chat, he might even ask to help plating his dishes which gives a truly extraordinary dining experience. The menu changes frequently, classic dishes with a twist prepared with the best ingredients.

Fantastic dining experience. Each dish on the tasting menu was outstanding (the croquettes- wow), wine pairing perfect, and the service top-notch. Really enjoyed watching the chef put together our creations and explain his process. Not to be missed when in Aruba.

We went last night for dinner for our wedding anniversary. They greeted us with champagne and seated us with a front row table of the beach. The food was surprisingly good, despite some of the negative reviews on the food. Our server was very attentive and kind. The live music was one of the highlights. At the end of our meal they gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary.

This was our first time @ Old Man and the Sea and we chose here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. First of all, the views and the ambience were incredible~ the beauty is breathtaking!! We were seated in an over the water palapa at a fabulous table. Our waiter was wonderful and even serenaded us at the end of the evening. Such a beautiful sentiment. ❤️ There was also live entertainment, which we really enjoyed. Unfortunately, the food was just ok. We both had the catch of the day, red snapper, and it was very dry and the flavor was very bland. We probably won’t return as it is quite a drive from the high rise area and there are so many amazing dining options in Aruba; however, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Old Man and the Sea.
