had the American in the Caribbean it was great and the chicken pitas were so fresh. Beware that at certain times of the day you will have to fight the flies for your food :)

This bar is accessible via boat that is in the Aruba Renaissance Marina Resort. It is a private island for adults only. Beautiful place to enjoy the beach with refreshments ranging from fruit juices to adult beverages.

This newly rebuilt (after a fire) restaurant is on the Renaissance Aruba Resort's private island. The island itself is breath-taking. The new restaurant is beautiful and supremely convenient. I wish there were more healthy food choices available, but it is on an island afterall!. I want to call out the staff, who do their very best to make you feel... More

We came here for breakfast and it was just okay. The service was fine but the limited food options were not great and the price seemed a bit high for the size of the plates. I would only go here for the views and the bar.

Located on the Renaissance private island. We were on all inclusive so anything on the menu was available to us for lunch. We found that sometimes they were slower to serve us even if they were not busy.

For those lucky enough to enjoy the Renaissance Aruba Resort and their island, the associated restaurant on the island will not disappoint. For being in such a secluded area, we were pleasantly surprised at the variety and taste of their many menu items. My husband had their chicken burger and I had the flamingo wrap. Both were very good and... More

The flies and birds were constantly on your food and all over the bar supplies. We stuck to cans and decided to eat before heading to the island after seeing this ..we didn't agree with the 'service charge' being added to your bill but then when we asked the staff they said it wasn't part of the tip and we...

On the Iguana Beach (private island) is a great place to order good food and drinks. There is also a place to order on the Flamingo Beach next door. Always good food and a convenient place to get food and snacks while enjoying the beach. Chicken is good and as well as many other menu menu items. GO FOR IT!
