We loved this little gem. We ate at most recommended restaurants around the island. I thought the fresh grouper was great. Quiet place on the water with a perfect sunset. If you're looking for something authentic please try here. Service was awesome.

This beautiful location is a wonderful place to enjoy dinner. The service is excellent and efficient. The steak and lobster dinner is very good. Fresh vegetables accompanied the meal. It is pricey.

The seaside ambience and fresh fish at dockside are very specilal. My wife and I ate there three times while on a 14 day stay in Aruba. The seafood was always a today's catch of mediterranean fish in Aruban style preparation. The service was 100% and the tables on the dock next to the sea watching the sunsets will always... More

Great location - a table by the water is of course best. Fun to watch dinner swim by... the beer-battered Wahoo was spectacular.

Great, unique dining experience. Food was wonderful. Service was superb. It's hidden and off the beaten path- and that's why we like it. We will continue to go back.

After an exciting drive in the dark through the rain and mud, we managed to find this place. The food and service were good. We each had squid, but prepared different ways. The view of the water is lovely in one direction. In the other, you are looking at the water treatment plant.

We had dinner for 11 which was handled impeccably by the friendly staff in this family run restaurant. The food was very good and more wholesome than fine dining in style. The dock location was great and results in perfect temperature and combines with relaxing views. The ambience is casual. Great place for families. The fish dishes are fresh and... More
