Once you have checked in and gone through security/customs for US flights, there are not may choices for food and drinks at the airport in Aruba. Our flight our was delayed 5 hours so I had plenty of time to check out the One Happy Bar. They pour a good drink; USD8 is not too bad compared to some other... More

About the food - super expensive, paninis are made on about the size of a hot dog bun and they ran out of grilled chicken by dinnertime. Not worth what you pay $7-9 per sandwich without fries or chips or drink ($3.50 soda or water) but it is maybe a little healthier than Sbarro's or pretzels. Atmosphere was super loud... More

Short menu and drinks. Our server was Lea. Very pleasant and efficient. When she waits on you and serves you she has a very pleasant smile. Tuna sandwich and ham and cheese sandwich were very good

Once you pass US customs, there is a limited selection of food and drink. This bar is a mainstay for us every year. They have a limited menu of hot paninis, but they are good and reliable. The drinks are great. I see the same familiar faces every year. Only negative for us is we have a toddler and there... More

Service was very good. Prices reasonable for Aruba/airport. They have a few tables in front of the counter and a few high tops across the hallway. We did not find any rude employees that others have mentioned. The person we dealt with was extremely friendly and we bantered back and forth the whole time we were there.

We were at he airport and needed a meal before boarding the plane. The airport has several fast food sources and places were yu can get some pre-prepared sandwiches. Finally we found this place that prepares hot and cold wraps, along with other things. Compared to the other selections, this place was a godsend. The prices were ok as well.... More

This by far is the worst place ever. The bartender, manager and waitress were the rudest people. As I waited to attempt to get change the waitress got in a womens face and spoke very rudely to her. So she got up and left without ordering. Then a couple decided cancel their order because they were waiting too long and... More

Worst bartenders ever. VERY RUDE - they make you feel you're doing then a favor by ordering from them. Overpriced drinks. Bad food. Not happy at all. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
