The restaurant has an interesting menu divided between wood grilled delights and healthy vegetarian nonsense. However the service, although island paced provides A good amount of time to digest between courses and enjoy yourself. Our party enjoyed the calamari trio which was excellent, and delicious fresh fish that was grilled perfectly. Missing glazed salmon was a big hit as was the Seabass.
Brother love the shrimp in creole sauce and I had the grilled seafood medley which was very good and moist. You will enjoy your dining experience here and I recommend it

Best meal we had in Aruba. . Not easy to find creative vegetarian cuisine and have my meat loving husband happy too. We found it at Yemanja!

Great atmosphere, great service and the food was amazing. It was by far the best food we had in Aruba and rivals some of the best restaurants I've been to anywhere. They could accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions, which is how we landed there, but everything we had was delicious including the drinks.

One of the best dinner places my wife and I went to during our stay in Aruba. It is located in the downtown area of Aruba, a short cab ride from Eagle Beach. I had the surf & turf for dinner. Beautiful ambience, strong drinks, experiencing Aruba at its best.

Their service is excellent and attention to detail wonderful. We needed gluten free and they did a magnificent job without looking like it was a challenge. Grouper wrapped around borsoin cheese is a must. Best i’ve Ever had. Power salad also rated tops. Be prepared not to be rushed a very relaxed atmosphere. We’ll be back every time we are in Aruba!!!
