I would not recommend this restaurant. We went to this on a recommendation from a coworker. I was very disappointed with our experience. The tables/chairs were lawn furniture with clothes over it surrounding an unclean pool. If you are using a pool as the focal point of the space, shouldn't it be clean? The waiter never checked on our table.... More

My wife and I booked restaurant reservations prior to traveling. This restaurant was not on our list. After arriving and speaking to friendly hotel guests that had been coming to Aruba for years...it was clear we overlooked this restaurant. Out hotel concierge quickly booked this restaurant for us, cancelling another restaurant reservation. Best. Move. Ever. Ambiance was spectacular. Service was... More

This was probably the most romantic dinner we had on our honeymoon in Aruba. The restaurant is actually a Spanish style hacienda house that has been turned into a restaurant. With a wonderful exotic ambience, you dine al fresco on a large patio surrounded by tropical plants overlooking a tranquil pool. The seating felt very private as though we were... More

Dinner was good and in an ambient surrounding the swimming pool. The water show is as awesome and kept all the guests entertained. Meals were good and enjoyed the variety menu. Trip to Aruba is incomplete without having meal at this renowned restaurant.

We found a new place to try while staying in Aruba. This was off the main area in which we usually go to. Great menu along with good service.

The restaurant is set in a beautiful garden surrounding a pool. The night we were there was particularly hot with no breeze add to that the sizzling heat from the fish cooked in front of you on a hot stone, let's just say that it's a good thing the food was delicious. Even the kids menu was great (so tired... More
