The food was edible but the grouper had a large taste of egg on the batter. And the baked Brie was very pungent making the taste off-putting. The stars were the Mahi mahi and egg rolls. the service was some of the best we’ve had in the Caribbean.

Worst meal ever. Totally inedible. Ordered five tapis dishes and they were all served cold (problem was they were all suppose to be hot) and the taste was terrible. Two were so bad (the grouper and the special scallop) that we could not swallow them. The rest were slightly better. Save your money and go to McDonald’s.

After 8 nights of rich food we were looking for something lighter. We found it at Salt and Pepper. The tapas were great and then 2 salads were just perfect. Good wine list too. Nice music while we were eating from out front also.

I came for the Early Bird for 1 special. 3 tapas and a glass of sangria. The food was fine. The sangria was fine, though I've had better. The service was fine too, until it was time to pay. I finished my meal before I finished my sangria, so I told the server I would stay to finish my drink. That's when she went to the bar to eat dinner and chat with another person. She NEVER looked over to see if I was ready yet. After several minutes I had to flag down another server to request my bill. He brought the bill and charged me for the sangria which is supposed to be included with the Early Bird, so I had to flag him down again to correct it, flag him down *again* to re-run my card with the adjusted amount, and one more time for him to return my card with the revised bill. By the time I was able to pay my bill and leave, it was 30 minutes after I was finished. Not once did my original server acknowledge my existence during that entire time. So her tip was also "adjusted" to reflect her nonchalance. I hadn't been to Salt & Pepper for a while before this, and I am certainly not going to return after being treated with such apathy.

Have been to Salt it was just as good as some of the other pricier, nicer toes in the sand places. The first course was a delicious mustard soup. Now we have NEVER, EVER seen something like this on a menu anywhere and were intrigued. Boy, was it good! The wahoo was well done, but that's how most things on the island are cooked. The waffle she did a really nice job. Oh, and the pitcher of sangria was also good! Prices are par for the course for the island and no service charge was added. Worth stopping by for lunch or dinner.

Great little tapas style restaurant. Reminded us of the Izakaya style restaurants we love in Japan.
Our only issue would be the cost in relation to the size of each tappa
We paid $125 for 3 drinks and our meal for 2.

Previous to my booking this reservation I read some incredible reviews. As we were going on our vacation I decided to make a reservation. We were greatly impressed by everything on the menu that we had which was excellent. The service was very excellent and timely and the price very reasonable considering the value overall.
We shall be returning in about eight months to do it all again. Thank you Robert W Stack

We made lunch reservations for around 1:30 however wasn't necessary. we walked write in and were seated with no problems or delays. The decor was nice with hundreds of different Salt & Pepper shakers on display of all sizes and shapes. We sat outside in the shade with a nice breeze and were able to have a pleasant conversation. The 4 of us each had something different and all meals were good with generous portions.

Overall everything was good here. However, there was confusion with where we could sit. I’m not sure why they take reservations if it is a sit yourself type of place. We were a party of 5 and we waited about 15 minutes with a reservation for a table.

I would never recommend this restaurant. I made a reservation well in advance. This was the first day of our vacation and I didn’t want to look for a place to dine.
When we came, the hostess told us that their computer system is down and they couldn’t seat us. I shown her my reservation on the phone but it didn’t help. She was not accomadating and didn’t offer any alternatives so we had to leave. I don’t think it is acceptable and tells a lot about the restaurant.

Sixth time in Aruba. Found this gem on our first trip. Food selection excellent. If you can’t find something you like or something you say “I would like to try that combination “ then you’re not eating. The tapas menu is the best around.
