You will not regret it. The service is out of this world and the food is to die for. You are served a five meal course and you watch the chef cook your meal right in front of you. This resturant seats only 16 people.

Our first day in Aruba. Travel weary and hungry. Our meal set the stage for a remarkable visit. The fish was so fresh and well seasoned. The drinks flavorful. Excellent wine. We will be going back in Sept 2017

Wonderful food from a very humble and talented chef. The servings aren't tiny, I couldn't finish my last course. The small groups and intimate setting were lovely. We had a "regular" who was a little loud and making the show about him but otherwise it...More

Yes they accept both. US dollars are accepted everywhere in Aruba. Amex and Discover are often not accepted outside the US.

Carte Blanche is on the Bucuti property about 10-15 minutes tops from the Marriott. Have fun !!
I am staying at Bicutti and would like to have dinner at Carte Blanche. Is that possible? This is my first time at Bicutti and was told what a fabulous place to eat. I will be staying Feb 4 - 11.

You can try but I usually reserve our spot 5 months ahead of our visit. We go to Aruba every year and dinner is a highlight with friends. Sometimes they have lat minute cancelations so get on their waitlist
