Stopped for a lunch there, since it reminded us Le Bistro where we ate 2 days before. What are the odds to find 2 Belgian restaurants within the walking distance from each other? I'm pretty sure they have the same owner. And they both share the same level of quality food, service and moderate prices.
I had an onion soup and Captain's grouper. My wife had a fresh vegetable salad and a steak. All was impeccably cooked and the bill was at about $30 per person before tips. Did I mention a great service?
Would definitely go there again.

Dear,

Thank you for your review. The two places are indeed in the same group.

Taste of Belgium Restaurant at Palm Beach Plaza
Le Bistro (this used to be Taste of Belgium but became now a great bistro)
Papillon Restaurant located across from the Radisson Hotel (French cuisine)
Cilo City Lounge located at the harbour in town behind the cinemas

We are glad you enjoyed your visit.
We are looking forward to welcome you again on your next visit to Dushi Aruba.
Culinary Regards,
Werner and Peter

Only been here one night and we were a bit worried about getting a decent feed in Aruba. Got a taxi from the low rise to the high rise (a desperate looking place), then by chance came across this place. Melt in your mouth grouper, my wife said it was the best fish she ever had. Fresh fish caught every day. Nice sauce, salad and fries included. Get here early to avoid the crowds and get attentive service.

I did not care for this one at all, it is large and when we were there empty. Yet the employees rather talked to eachother than to be attentive to the guests, happens in more restaurants but beside the point.

The food was not good, it was not fresh, it was flavorless and costly. There are so many restaurants on Aruba why bother going here.

Was pleasantly surprised to find this little place in the mall. Nice atmosphere, great food. I had filet mignon and husband had fettuccini . Not large portions but enough and prepared well with lots of flavor. Would definitely return.

Dear,

Thank you for your review but i think you are talking about Le Bistro. This is our smaller place at paseo herencia mall across the holiday inn hotel.
Taste of Belgium Restaurant is not really a small place and that restaurant is located at the Palm Beach Plaza Mall close to the Marriott hotel and behind the paseo herencia mall.
This restaurant is also owned by us as is Papillon Restaurant across the Radisson Hotel and Cilo City Lounge in town at the Harbour.
But it was great to read that you had a fantastic experience.
We are looking forward to welcome you in one of our places with all a different ambiance but run at the highest standards.
Culinary Regards,
Werner and Peter
