... and I don't use the word amazing lightly. This restaurant is amazing in every regard- atmosphere, food, service, EVERYTHING! We had an absolutely delightful meal with Darling as our server. She had it all done- she was personable, succinct, and answers all of our questions. Everything on the menu was delicious- we started with the ceviche and crouquettes.

For our main meal, we had: Grouper Capresse, Grouper Shrimp & Salmon, Stuffed Chicken, and Paella. All excellent.

For dessert, one of us horded the chocolate mousse (and loved it!) and the others split the decadent Nutella Cheesecake.

This place is a must!!

Quinta del Carmen is a gem off the beaten path. The romantic courtyard setting is so beautiful with the plush tropical plantings and twinkling lights. Treat yourself to a magnificent meal. You won't be disappointed.

A friend of ours recommended this restaurant to us. She had been there a few weeks earlier.
We tried it. We were not disappointed. Food was great, staff very friendly and helpful.
Prices were not overly high as in other fine dining restaurants in Aruba. The place is very, very nice.
We highly recommend it.

So we came to this restaurant last year but I have to say this year it was probably the best meal I’ve had in all of our nights thus far. We dined at quinta Del Carmen and zulay was our server for the evening. The restaurant is an old-time mansion with beautiful grounds and gardens, just exquisite. To start I had the seafood soup and mom had the spicy crispy shrimp. The soup had mussels, clams, crab, shrimp and light veg in a light, subtle, creamy broth that I had to sop up with the hot bread they brought. Not thick like a chowder, but delicate. Mom’s shrimp was so lightly crisped, it was like air.

For our mains we had the mahi mahi with truffle sauce, mixed veg and fries and the stuffed chicken with bacon, boursin cheese and a light sauce with veg and mashed potatoes.
Easily the best and most exquisite plates yet. The fish and chicken were piping hot and seasoned perfectly, the veg were delicious and crisp, perfectly done.
The sauces were subtle but beyond flavorful, we could not get over how every bite was so perfect.

For dessert we shared the nutella cheesecake with fresh hazelnut ice cream and fresh cream. Cannot wait to come back:)
