The atmosphere is adorable and very romantic. The service was friendly. Everyone found something they liked and left satisfied. I had the grouper romanesco dish and found it to be delicious!

The ambiance of this restaurant is amazing. Most of the seating is outdoors around a pool, beautiful trees and lighting everywhere. Servers were very friendly and quick. My husband and I don't like seafood, so it left us with a very limited menu. We did each find a steak and chicken dish we could eat, which was amazing. Be sure... More

Absolutely our favorite fine dining in Aruba! The atmosphere (low branch trees surrounding a beautiful pool). Perfect for romantic or couples dinner with twinkling lights above. Great speciality drinks and dinner. Desserts are some of the best around.

Was always our favorite but service has been lacking. Found out they no longer offer the dinner Caesar Salad. Big disappointment, besides we waited a long time for our wine and meal. No music - no salad - no apologies. Come on Ms. Ellis

This restaurant has amazing food but is also one of the most romantic restaurants. Everyone in our party loved their dinner but it's the atmosphere of little twinkling lights that makes this restaurant a must visit.
