We were a party of six and we all had a great experience! My husband and I actually split a dinner - and we both said it was perfect. We tried an appetizer with warm goat cheese that was to die for! The waiter recommended his favorite when it came to dessert and again absolutely delicious! Also a great wine... More

Woodfired grilled steaks sounded good. The service was good. The food was good, but a little disappointing. We had the BBQ Mahi Mahi. It came with a sauce that overwhelmed the fish. We also had Surf and Turf skillet. Which included shrimp and beef tips. The shrimp were good. The beef tips were disappointing. I don't like fat or gristle... More

Best meal we've had in Aruba. They couldn't seat us so we sat at the bar. Excellent salad and then creole shrimp. Coconut mousse for desert. Everything, including the service at the bar was excellent

This is the second time eating here. Another great meal. I highly recommend eating here. We all enjoyed our meals. My wife and son had the stuffed pork tenderloin and beef tips/shrimp. They loved it. I had the power salad with grouper. The salad was huge and perfect. The grouper was good too. They have a good kids menu too.... More

We have been going to Yemanja for years. It has been great, sometimes ok, and sometimes no so good. But they have changed their menu to include some super healthy dishes and kept many of their great seafood items and others, too. WOW! We were really thrilled with our dinner from start to finish. We were a party of 5... More
