The building is gorgeous and the food was very good. We had a nice wine and I had the Calypso Shrimp. Had the salmon sashimi to start. Friendly service and it was lovely sitting out in the garden. Put this place on your lest.

This restaurant is a must-visit if you are in Aruba. Great food, a terrific menu, vegetarian-friendly, and excellent service. You can sit inside or outside in a very nice tropical private terrace/garden area.
