From the moment we arrived, having a cocktail at sunset to our table on the open balcony, the experience was 5 Star. The staff was professional and the food far exceeded our expectations. I will always return every time I come to Aruba.

JÁ CONHECIAMOS O RESTAURANTE POR VARIAS VISISTAS A ARUBA, MAS NÃO TINHAMOS A EXPERIENCIA EM APROVEITARMOS A OPORTUNIDADE DE CONHECER A GASTRONOMIA DO MESMO. APROVEITAMOS ESTE ANO PARA COMEMORAR A FORMATURA DE NOSSA NETA, E TIVEMOS UMA ACOLHIDA SUPER FAMILIAR PELOS FUNCIONARIOS E PROPRIETARIOS, COMO SE ESTVIVESSEMOS EM UMA SÓ FAMILIA. QUANTO AO CARDAPIO MUITO BEM PREPARADO E COM PREÇOS OTIMOS. FOI UM PRAZER E CERTAMENTE ESTARA EM NOSSA PROGRAMAÇÃO PARA 2022

It is a charming place with fantastic customer service and impeccable food. Real delicious veal osso bucolic , was so tender to cut with a fork. Rack of lamb was also a Hit at our table. Never ate a bad pasta here and would recommend any of it. I would consider it a can't miss place if you are here for a week.

As always we enjoyed our dinner with the exception of one dinner. It was not hot. The lobster was undercooked and not hot. Our guest did not want to send it back feeling that the lobster would then be overcooked. We have visited several times and this was the first time this has happened and was sad that it happened to our guest.
