Was one of top 3 resturants on Aruba, now it has gone to number 9 on our list. We had to wait for service, even though we were not in a hurry.

Second time in Aruba and had to try the place everyone talks about and recommended. My wife and I were very excited and anticipated a great dinning experience. That's not what happened from the time we were treated at the hostess station. We arrived at 6 for a 6:30 reservation and wanted to enjoy a drink at the bar. We... More

Very nice dining environment. Food portions and quality extremely overpriced for what was served. I paid $46 for the Land and sea meal. I recieved 4 medium sized shrimp and the smallest portion of thinly cut steak I have ever seen. It could not have been more than 2 ozs of meat.

An original masterpiece, That the owner Edward grew up in. Escargot, oyster soup, seafood casserole, steak & turf superior choices with impeccable taste throughout. Reservations are a must and come early and stay late. Bring your own cigars and drink cognac at the bar. The only hazard here is the pool in the middle of the dining room so don't... More
