“Not what we expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Not sure how this place got into my shortlist, but we were thoroughly disappointed by the quality of food. I had grilled mahi mahi and my wife had a grilled fish/steak combo.
Service was good, but both dishes were very bland, very average. Not the prices. We ended up paying about $30 per person for something we didn't enjoy.
Wouldn't recommend, wouldn't go there again.

“Go for the Early Bird Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

My husband and I liked this place so much we ate there twice during our week's stay in Aruba. It is within walking distance of the Marriott Surf Club which is where we were staying. We had the Early Bird Special both times: $17.50 per person includes 3 tapas (chosen from a huge list of both hot and cold tapas) and a glass of Sangria. This is a real bargain since most of the tapas range between $5 and $7 per item and the sangria sells for $5.50 a glass. Seating is both inside and outside. Staff is very friendly and the service is good. The inside of the restaurant is decorated with unique salt and pepper shakers, hence the name. Hint - bring in a "original" set of shakers and you'll receive a free glass of sangria.

“Great casual place and wifi is a nice plus.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

Has breakfast here and it was very good. There is an island wide tendency to huge portions and this place is no exception, but they do have options for normal people.
Would definitely return.

“Good Fish, our fresh catch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

Went fishing in the morning and the captain brought the catch (Wahoo) to Salt and Pepper where Nick (Our Waiter) Served up the catch to us. The chef cooked the fish in four different styles so we could sample all. They were all wonderful and service was great. You can not beat fresh fish.
