Unexpectedly a great roast dinner. Great views, friendly staff. Just the live music was a little loud at times for lunch time. Also tinted windows would be awesome :D

Unfortunately the Thai green curry was unbearably hot even for a Thai green curry!

very accommodating as several of our party got caught up in Friday night traffic. Quick service but felt very quiet for a Friday evening.

We booked a table for breakfast, when we turned up there was no one to see us to our table. there was a group of staff members all huddled around the bar that made eye contact with us but never bothered to approach us. We eventually approached them as it was clear they were not going to come over to us. The woman told us to sit anywhere then left us with no menus or no idea if she was even going to come and serve us. We waited at the table for over 15mins for service but had no luck so eventually went to the bar ourselves...where we were ignored yet again. The food came eventually but when it did come to the table it was cold, as if it had just been sat there for a while after being cooked. I am very disappointed as I booked a table for mine and my partners anniversary as a treat as I have come here many times before but have never received this kind of service. The staff working there clearly didn't want to be there and were rude and standoffish whenever we asked for service. Overall I am very disappointed and it put a downer on a really lovely weekend.

Good midweek dinner with friends, in the relaxed sea views Aruba offers. It’s always a bit of a shame that the full menu never seems to be available when we visit, but with a large selection-there’s always something to please everyone.

Cara and Claudia were fantastic hosts and did all they could to make sure our hen party enjoyed every second of the cocktail making, our evening meal and our drinks booth afterwards. The two guys (one was called Kevin) who did the cocktail making were great sports and gave our bride a day to remember. Thank you to those staff mentioned. 5*

Great service and food. I was worried it might be quite loud, but it was a great atmosphere and easy to chat to the rest of my table.
