Great location. Great food. Very noisy. Still worth visiting. The salmon with sesame seeds rocks! Have eaten here three times this visit.

We always visit this place when we are in ft Lauderdale. I love that it is directly on the beach so the view while dining is beautiful. Food is always consistent, the place is always crowded, in a good way. fun atmosphere. in a great little town.

Aruba is right on the ocean so the views are great. They have 3 bars, live entertainment, and happy hour specials. The bars fill up early for the happy hour and entertainment. Many people stay a long time at the bars. The service is great and the food is excellent and reasonably priced.

Aruba is the closest restaurant to the beach. It has the option of outdoor seating. They often have entertainment. We were serenaded by a reggae singer. The menu is expansive with a variety of sandwiches, salads, entrees and fancy drinks. I highly recommend the strawberry walnut salad!

Very good appetizers, and drink prices during happy hour, We had the escargot and they added tomato to the garlic butter, which really added to the taste. The place is very busy, but runs well, other than the parking lot....park a little farther away and enjoy the walk. This is a jewel of an area, and Aruba is uniquely situated... More

Stopped in for a quick bite. Coconut shrimp was good. It is listed as an appetizer, but we ate as a meal. Live entertainment. We are outside, very noisy inside. Service was good.

The place is busy and everyone is ok. It's not bad but nothing like wow. Go for happy hour and enjoy
