The food was very good but the service could have been better. Nice location overlooking downtown. Would definitely go again.

Any Aruba visit must include a stop at our favorite restaurant! Never gets old....great burritos, delicious salad, and delectable Keshyana. Ribs were tasty too. Great service and pleasant manager and waiter.

My entire extended family agree the ribs are the best we've ever had. I get a full rack and have the leftovers for breakfast the next day! I never order ribs at home.

Stopped in for dinner with a group because my 7 yr old insisted we stop, probably because of the fancy colors! Mexican/American/island food. Food was good and reasonable. Bar kind of atmosphere. Central location overlooking the street is great.

Had lunch here whilst in Oranjestad; watched the world go by from this elevated restaurant. The food was great and equally was the service. It was very busy when I visited which is a good sign. A must visit as it is part of the...More

Mine was about the same. Good beer though. The place was expensive altogether.

In dollars...all restaurants are now in dollars...in my experiences, the only places that show their products in florins are the small local merchants
