Our restaurant picks - comments?


We will be in Aruba Christmas week. We have made all our reservations. They are Elements, Screaming Eagle, Cuba's Cookin, Madam Jeanette, El Gaucho, Matthews, Passions. Some of these we made because they are walking distance from where we are staying in Eagle Beach and won't have to taxi every night. Are these good choices? Thanks!

Food was good at Passions and good service. El Gaucho's we really liked. Very tender steak and loved the latin decor. I have not been to the rest on your list.

We've been to ElGaucho, Passions, Matthews and Madame Jeanette and have found the food and service to be excellent at all. Hope you enjoy them too. Will be trying Elements this October and hoping it's as good as the reviews.

We like Matthews, eat there every year. I like how they make Grilled fish.

Thought Screaming Eagle was delicious. Great menu. Good choice.

We go to Barefoot instead of Passions, lots of people go to Passions, you will enjoy it. Toes in the sand is fun.

Enjoy your time in Aruba, you can change your mind when you get to the island. Yes it will be crowded, but there are so many places.

Have fun

Tulip on Eagle Beach should be on your list. Great food, delightful open air setting, wonderful service and good prices.

We've been to all of those on your list many times (except Elements which just opened last month.) All are good! Enjoy!

All good choices. l could also suggest many more good restaurants but there is never enough days while on vacation to eat at all of them.
