Varied menu, good food, energetic atmosphere. Most tables were with 4 plus guests & many with families. The staff seemed pressured to over please always asking if you were happy with your meal even at first bite. Maybe they needed turnovers as well. Seems like they were under a little pressure. Having said that we would go back again. Shrimp... More

Service was excellent as was the food. This is more of a classy upscale dining experience. We had escargot and crab cakes for appetizers, they were very good. The stuffed grouper for dinner was good. We had Creme Brulee and Chocolate Mousse for dessert, both were very good. As i mentioned - This is more of a classy upscale dining... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times before on other trips to Aruba, so we though we knew what to expect. However, it was Valentine's Day when we visited this year, and to say that it felt like a convention center restaurant is not an exaggeration. It was clearly at capacity seating and the waiters and waitresses were... More

We returned once again and were not disappointed. This restaurant is classic old world dining with superb team service that is efficient and friendly. The food is wonderful, from amazing appetizers to a classic stroganoff, Rack of lamb, fresh fishes and a Tolberone chocolate fondue. The staff has been there since we started going 20 plus years ago. Counting down... More

Excellent wait staff. Food was very good. Rack of lamb was most popular dish. Apple strudel was good. Beef stroganoff average. Nice lobster tail.

I always go here for the lamb chops. They're so good. The wine is very good too. It's more of a relaxed atmosphere. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. Best to make a reservation.

Even though we dropped in on a busy night we were greeted promptly and did not have to wait for a table. Excellent - happy - attentive service by the entire waitstaff. We had the lobster tail very good and the lamb chops.....outstanding! Our third visit and we will be back again.

My husband and I had our valentines day dinner here and it was lovely. The place was busy because of the holiday; but the staff was excellent even though they were busy. We had a small ocean view from our table. The server took time to take our pictures. The meal was very good. I had grouper stuffed with crab... More

I love this restaurant. It's like casual-fine dining! You would feel like maybe you should dress up but even the host will tell you...... you're on vacation......relax! And the food...... delicious!
