Looking for a picturesque setting? Look no farther than the restaurant at Tierra del Sol! We were seated at the very edge of the seating area which overlooks the 18-hole golf course which, in turn, overlooks the northwest corner of the island. The California Lighthouse could be seen from our table. Everyone at the restaurant was so accommodating and it was a true pleasure to dine here. My crab and corn chowder was out-of-this world! My entree, pappardelle bolognese, was perfect! Hubby started with Canadian oysters followed by a shrimp dish in a red sauce. Menu stated that it was spicy, but when asked if they could hold the spice, the request was not a problem! Finished with a delectable slice of chocolate mousse cake to share with “Happy Anniversary” spelled out on the plate. Fine dining at it’s best!

What an amazing restaurant. If you’re looking to get out of the hotel zone and have a GREAT meal this is the spot. The actual location is gorgeous at the resort right next to the pool and the area overlooks the lighthouse. It’s casual but very nice, and also wold be an excellent romantic spot or business meal location. Menu also offers a bunch of excellent choices. We started with the escargot which came out piping hot, although quality tempted for the tuna tataki or beef tartare. The speciality of the pork with chimichurri is outstanding. The tuna steak also was top notch, and don’t forget to ask about the specials for fish. Lastly the cappuccino here is unreal. They make it a little special and you shouldn’t miss out.

Food and service was amazing. View was stunning, could have just sat there with a cocktail and watched the sunset. Only drawback was the wind.. we were sitting in the corner but there are no doors where the walkways begin to head onto the greens. I would highly suggest putting some sort of partition up when this occurs because my hair was constantly blowing in the wind. Also, making a designated smoking area at the front of the building because the wind just carried the smoke into the restaurant right towards my table.

Six of us enjoyed a memorable Christmas Dinner at the Restaurant at Tierra del Sol! We were seated outdoors at our request with a unique and beautiful view of the sunset painted sky over the "wild side" of the island. We had a special bottle that we particularly wanted to enjoy on Christmas and with a very reasonable corkage, the restaurant opened and served the wine expertly and graciously. After enjoying our special wine, we were able to find wonderful white and red selections in the extensive wine list as well as creative cocktails, both virgin and alcoholic. Appetizers and salads were wonderful but the main course was the star of the evening. At special request, the restaurant was able to procure and prepare an amazing Crispy Snapper! Other entrees enjoyed included the Korean Pork Chop and fish of the day, also snapper and prepared to perfection. Already looking forward to another wonderful evening!

The calamari was so delish and fresh!! My dad said it was the best he’s had in 30 years. All of the other food was delicious as well. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere itself was quiet and relaxing, a nice retreat from the main strip.

You need a signature dish for people who want a great meal out and can only get it at Tierra Del Sol. Previously you had ostrich steak. Something like lamb chops or Chilean sea bass cooked special would be great.
Your advertisement needs to show the wonderful view you have.
Shrimp with the head on is not a dish to bring people in.
So you need something special besides pizza.

It is wonderful to have The Restaurant at Tierra del Sol back for full service dining and the renovations are exceptional. The ambiance is relaxing and bistro casual. The renovation has opened up the views which are now even more stunning! Service is gracious and accommodating and the wine list offers some unique surprises. We came to Aruba on November 27 and have dined twice since our arrival. On the first visit I enjoyed a perfectly prepared Wahoo, the catch of the day. Last night, I enjoyed the Beef Carpaccio as an entree accompanied with the truffle risotto. I started each evening with a special request salad of Arugula with Parmesan and Balsamic Vinegar. My husband tried a Wedge Salad and was very happy and on the second visit enjoyed the Caesar. For his meal, he choose the Spicy Garlic Shrimp the first night then the Caribbean Seafood; I tasted his selections and all were delicious. I fully recommend that this wonderful "new" restaurant be experienced!

Had dined here on our honeymoon in 1996 and restaurant was a fine dining, white table cloth, restaurant with grand piano and the experience was excellent. Unfortunately the restaurant has changed to simply accommodate those looking for a light bite after golf.
We had a reservation for dinner and stayed for a drink and then moved on to Ruth’s Chris at Marriot

Miss the old Menu at The Restaurant at Tierra Del Sol. This new menu is basically a casual menu. Gone or table clothes, cloth napkins and a better wine menu, now very limited by the glass.

Returned after a year to find there was nothing left if the old restaurant. Was surprised to see signs to Panda Express? This was located on the corner off the pool a d smelled, will like Panda Express. Still decided to enter the regular restaurant. Menu items are minimal with Panda Express fast food available on the bottom. There where 5 wines total available none of which I ever heard off. We decided to leave an eat elsewhere. Really not worth the t9me or effort. So sorry for a place with such a view.

My wife and I always went here the last night in Aruba every time we visited. This visit is the last. We always wanted a fine dining meal but the Tierra del Sol no longer serves fine dining. The waiter brought the digital menu to us and we scrolled through but the entrees consisted of hamburgers, hot wings, and Panda Express. We asked if this was the only menu and he said yes that they remodeled 2years ago and changed the menu to something simple. So we decided that we had to leave because this was not what we wanted. I can not see how a gated resort would serve “Bar Food” in its fine restaurant. Very disappointed and let down.

We were unaware of the changes and the elimination of a full service restaurant and disappointed in only the 19th hole and it’s very limited menu. The new space is lovely but not as nearly impressive as the outdoor terrace we expected from years before. The on-site Panda Express really brought the place down for us. Signage and parking instructions awful.

We made reservations for Sunday brunch prior to our arrival to Aruba. After paying 21.00 in cab fare to get out to the resort, we were informed they no longer have Sunday brunch and haven't for over a year. Their web site on Open Table was misleading and needs to be updated. The reason I gave more stars than necessary was for the wonderful waitress who helped us arrange a cab to another restaurant that did have Sunday brunch. Thank you Niurka for all your help!!!!!
