This is a must restaurant in Aruba. The seafood, steaks, and drinks are spectacular. The sangria was refreshing. The lobster and king crab was the best, and the price was reasonable. It was also walking distance from our hotel, so that was nice.

Driftwood is by far one of the best seafood restaurants in Aruba. We have visited Driftwood several times and never disappointed. A must when you visit!

Our friends who have a time share at the Renaissance love this restaurant. It.s a convenient few block walk for them and they know the staff.

I had the shrimp with pasta and my wife had the the seafood special. My friends also had the seafood special

Our food was good, not great. we all had wine and that was good and reasonably priced and our special came with a salad and desert.
.
My overall review of this restaurant is it is ok. Nothing special and my wife and I would never consider returning unless we were with our friends at the Renaissance.. There are about 100 better restaurants closer to our timeshare but if you stay in the old "Down town" you may want to give it a try.

We have eaten dinner here during our last several visits to Aruba. We enjoy walking from the Renaissance Ocean Suites. The food is very good. There is a special menu that includes appetizer, entree, coffee and dessert for one price. It is a lot of food. The catch of the day is fresh and tasty. I usually get it served Aruban style and my husband orders the shrimp with curry sauce. The meals are consistently good each year. The garlic bread is great and unlimited. We look forward to next year.
