Nothing to brag about

The food is pretty good if you feel like waiting 30 to 45 minutes for a seat on the weekends during the day not so bad. Drinks absolutely taste like crap. The hostesses seem to be very oblivious and carry a brain capacity of that of a goldfish. If you ask them if your normal waiter is working and give them the name they look at you dumbfounded as if there's no one working there by that name. Actually walked in on two of them in the bathroom talking trash about one of my girlfriends saying how ugly she was when she walked in to downsize somebody's physical appearance is very shallow. then for standing up to them telling them that they were wrong for what they said they started downsizing my physical appearance absolutely horrible bedside manner there. Hostess names "maddie" and the other one I am unsure. If you want good waiter service make sure you get a table with Curtis a good friend of mine and he always make sure you get the best service if you are unhappy he will try his best to help you out or buy a drink on the house just to make your experience a little better.

Looks are deceiving

Looked like a nice place to dine & drink. OOPS
Drinks were pricey & watered down. Could taste no alcohol. Had the Texican burger. The burger was ok, the chips were stale. Very overpriced but I guess they need to pay the expensive rent being on the Beach. The view was nice but you could have just sat on the beach.

I didn't like the bathroom valet where you feel like you need to tip someone for handing you paper towel.

Nice View, Bad Service

The food is not that great and the service is even worse. I love the view of the ocean and the Bahama Mamas but that is how far it goes. I have gone here a few times because it is close to home, but I will be finding a another place to dine.

Ms Fort Lauderdale Eating at Arubas

I have been here over 100 times``no lie``my daughter worked there as a hostess back in the days!



I like Aruba for fun--if you don't feel like dress up and wearing your flip-flops is perfect. The beach is right on their back yard--theres always a perfoming band and the food is good.



I always, but almost always have the oysters and I will tell you a brief story that I tell everyone when I go there.



One time I order a dozen oysters--i bit into something not so pleasently and spit it out--guess what?

It was a pearl.

Another time I went- bit into something and guess what?

It was a pearl.



Guess how many pearls I gathered in a 15 years spam--8!

I lost my previous 12 when I moved.



After that went on and on--My friends started saying that I was using the same pearl over and over to Fool Them!

But that was not the case.



The pearls are like a pin needle size and I keep them in a small zip bag--I smile everytime I see them--it bring back memories of my younger years and the question today why that happened to me only---Oh! g--maybe the chef was putting fake pearls on my platter to get my attention--well anyway, I never met him!



True story.



Back to the food you must -- but please tried the "Suppa di Mare'" if you love seafood--this large bowl of mussels, shrimp, scallops, baby clams, white chunk pieces of fish on a brooth to die for. I usually stop by order it to go and bring it home cook linguini and mixed all up ---good eats!



Love you too,

Sabrina

Former Ms. Fort Lauderdale US

Avoid Aruba Beach Cafe - they just want your molney

No attention to customer service, so the food is mediocre to horrible, the service is horrible, the prices are way to high and the management could care less if you leave happy or unhappy. Try Village Grill, or Athena's or Greek Isles down the beach, or Spazos, or Cafe Del Mar are all much better places, and most cost less than this place. Arubas is not in a class like those places, it is low quality and very low class.

Great seafood Large portions, fun live music

Parking is not impossible - there is Valet for $4.00 for dining right on the beach! Live music every night and wonderful margaritas!

On the Beach

The best thing about this place is the location, right on the beach. The food is average as well as the service but you can't beat being being nestled among the coconut palms on one of the best beaches in the county. Parking is impossible.
