My wife and I were there 1 June 16. Outstanding service. I had the grouper with mashed potatoes. The side dish portions were a bit on the small side, and the waiter noticed and offered more potatoes or vegetables...proof the waiter knows his business. My...More

An absolute must for dinner. Food was great and eating on the beach at sunset. That's all you need. We can went during the show but season in Aruba but I would still recommend making reservations.

We chose to eat indoors which is really like a giant palapa, you can eat with toes in the sand. Had grouper in a mango sauce, excellent. Great service and atmosphere. A little tough to find but well worth it. Will definitely return here next...More

Beautiful setting, good food and service, just check your ticket before paying. We received the wrong bill so we had to call our waiter back to get the correct ticket.

My husband and I will be coming there with another couple for the week of May 20-27th. We are celebrating my husband 60th birthday and this looks like a great place for dinner. We are coming from Chicago IL area. Do we need to make a reservation ahead of time and is calling the only way to book a table?

Aruba is all about the fabulous beaches during the day, and the many great restaurants at night. It is only logical that these two unique things of Aruba are combined into one! Luc & Gerco found the perfect spot to synergize great food, and a beautiful setting to create an experience almost unique on our island. When listening to the ocean caressing the shore, while wiggling your toes through the pearly white sand, why not let yourself be pampered by a gourmet dinner? Chef Gerco & Maitre d' Luc had a shared dream of opening up a restaurant here, but wanted something in line with what they enjoy on Aruba: the nearly perfect climate, the possibility to always be outside, the tropical feel... When opening their restaurant, they had these ideas in their heads, and it worked like a charm! Tables under a large palapa on a wooden deck with a view of the ocean, or outside under the Aruban nights sky, on the pristine beach... An original menu was created by Gerco and team, with some of the old school favorites as well as locally influenced dishes. With the help of the local wine suppliers, Luc made an extensive wine list, with wines from all over the world, and is always ready to pair a wine with your dinner. The experienced service team is friendly yet professional, ready to wow you from the moment you walk in, to make a fabulous evening into a great memory on Aruba!
