This was a great place for a private birthday celebration. The wait staff gave us personalized attention and provided excellent service. The All You Can Taste was surprising good allowing me to sample a variety of dishes. The red snapper was huge enough for another meal. The birthday cakes and singing presentation was wonderfully delightful. Thank you Tierra Del Sol for a great experience and making our birthday very special!!

We had a wonderful evening. We chose the tasting menu that offered us plenty of choice and many tasty tapas choices. The setting was perfect, service was excellent and the food absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back...

We had eaten at Tierra del Sol a number of times. The food is still excellent, however, the menu has become very limited. Tapas is the flavor of the day now at the restaurant, so if you are a tapas person, you would probably enjoy. We were especially disappointed because the tuna tartare was eliminated from the appetizers. Theirs was the absolute best in Aruba. Still, our meal was satisfactory, even with the compromised menu.

The menu wasn’t as good as usual and our food was cold a lot of the time. The waiters/waitresses were slow to fill our mimosas. We live on the island and come quite often but probably won’t be back.

We have always enjoyed dining here on our annual visit to Aruba but this year the menu was revised to include a nightly Tasting Menu and a glass of sangria for each guest. The result is a fantastic experience with perfectly prepared appetizers, entrees and desserts that do not disappoint! Attentive service and a beautiful location add to the excellent dining experience.
Tierra del Sol will continue to be at the top of our Aruba favourites list!

Wonderful waitress who took her time with us. Never felt hurried, super gorgeous location. The only complaint would be that I would love a couple more items on the a al carte menu. The tasting menu has some wonderful items on it that could easily be adapted to the a long carte menu. Especially for someone like me who is vegan with some fish. Not a ton of options.

One of the most picturesque restaurants on the island, with views of the ocean, California light house, all from an elevated post, nestled within the resort. During the week they offer a tapas tasting menu that was spectacular. The only thing stopping us from trying everything was the fact that we had to fit in our swim trunks the next day. I look forward to coming back next year.

Del Sol exceeded our expectations - arrived at sunset and opted for the outdoor seating, which was beautiful and pleasant throughout the evening. The tasting/tapas menu was fantastic (for us it translated into a 6-course dinner) and so was the red wine sangria (which followed the sake cocktail, equally yummy). Angelica, our server, did a fantastic job ✔️

The Restaurant at Tierra del Sol has been a key element of our annual visits to Aruba so we were a little concerned that it is no longer open for dinner on Sunday or Monday and we weren't sure about the changes to the menu. Having now dined three times this visit (romantic dinner for 2, couples dinner and birthday celebration for 8), I am assured that the Restaurant at Tierra del Sol has only gotten better!!! The new format offers two dining options--"off the menu" and "all you can eat tapas"; both feature gourmet options and presentation! Even better, guests dining together can choose which-ever option they prefer. For our romantic dinner, one of us had tapas and the other ordered off the menu; the same was true for the birthday dinner without any challenge to the service! To make our visit even more wonderful, we learned that the amazing Dover Sole that is (longer on the menu), can be arranged with advance notice! Thanks to the Chef graciousness, we were presented a perfectly prepared Dover Sole table-side! This extra effort was MUCH appreciated!!! In addition to the wonderful food, the view can't be beat. Outdoor dining offers an almost panoramic view of the "wild side" of the island. The Restaurant at Tierra del Sol is the only dining location featuring azure waves beating the rugged coast and an artist's palate of color in the sunset sky.

We choose the tapas menu which was so much fun! Included glass of wine and as many plates as you wanted. Upon delivery of our first plate our waitress was there to take our next order and proceeded to do this so by the time we finished, our next selection was close behind. The views are spectacular and it is a beautiful place. Great experience.

Booked for valentine day they didn’t tell us it was a special tapa menu where you could only order one tapa at a time or you could choose from a very limited regular menu - fish of the day was dry - service was marginal although we always love the ambiance
We have been going to dinner here for many years and enjoying it but we will think twice before going back
