We always have at least one dinner (sometimes more) when we visit Aruba. Food is tasty and their homemade sangria is always yummy too.

Good food, great drinks. If you're downtown looking for some island drinks and good grub, check this place out. If you're looking for someplace a little more secluded, this may not be for you. Very "touristy" spot but good nonetheless!

In dollars...all restaurants are now in dollars...in my experiences, the only places that show their products in florins are the small local merchants
Does the restaurant still sell Tshirts, hats etc. at their gift shop? I only see hot sauces and gift certificates online. Thanks
