Ate here the day we arrived as it was close to our hotel. Food was good but nothing spectacular. Prices were average. Good place for a casual lunch or dinner.

Very nicely located, right on the water. Great service and excellent food. Martin's platter is a "must"! Very good calamari! You may want to make a reservation, the place is very busy at night!

Ceviche and Grouper were out of this world. Setting and views are outstanding. Needs a person full time at front to seat parties. had to wait for a while to be seated. Service was good. Highly recommend it for food and view.

Meals are comparable to US prices for a vacation area. 2 adults could have drinks apps and meals for $60 - $150 depending on what you get and how much you drink and eat. Very casual for a beach day lunch and casual low key... More

I did not try to use a credit card but I saw others that did. I used cash to avoid all of the fees and security challenges while in Aruba. I did use a credit card at the hotel.
