Group of 4 went for dinner last night. Everyone raved about their dish and service was excellent. Our reservation was at 6:30, so we had the place to ourselves. I recommend going a little later to enjoy the entertainment.

I suggest you to make reservations for an amazing dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. A very romantic dinner for two.
The owners and the staff made sure we were enjoying our dinner. The food was delicious. One of the owners entertains the guests also. His name is Ed, he is a young singer who is an Aruban native with an impeccable voice.
"O" is a must for your stay in Aruba!!! This restaurant is a jewel.

We had dinner here our second to last night in Aruba...it was the best meal we had on the Island. Being from Southern California, it's hard to find food that's "absolutely amazing" as others have described many restaurants on Aruba. The food was good at most, but O stood out. We had Rack of Lamb, Lobster Bisque and Filet Mignon. The lamb was exceptional, as was the filet. The bisque was very good - more brothy than I'm used to, but excellent taste. Could've used more lobster, but again, the taste was excellent.

I don't rate 5 stars due to a couple of things (nothing to do with the food, which was GREAT). Lighting - we sat at one of the tables along the window - there was no overhead lighting, so it was too dark for my taste; we were brought fresh bread and herbed butter, which were excellent, but no bread plates. That's quite an oversight, IMO. The ladies restroom: the first one I went into had no toilet seat; the second one had a door that wouldn't close - the third had a door that closed, and a seat, but no toilet paper. 4th time (out of 4 stalls) was a charm. It's the details that make or break you.

As far as pricing, it's a GREAT deal for the quality of food. This was one of the very few restaurants that added a service charge (I think it was 15%). The service was fine, the owner introduced himself, which was nice. If they can straighten out these few wrinkles, it'll be a 5 star review worthy establishment. Again, the food is excellent! It's the items outside of the food that need to be worked out.

We have had dinner here with a group of 8 ladies and enjoyed it to the max. The Food was excellent and the service very very nice. The owner (singer) granted us a great serenade of international songs and we mostly sung along. The restaurant is ideal for a romantic dinner or a very special ocassion. We will definitely return.
