Ate here for breakfast our last morning in Aruba. Traditional breakfasts here, eggs, meat, potatoes, etc. We both got their "Seaport" breakfast, which also included a half dozen mini-dutch pancakes. Excellent! Plenty of patio seating and no wait. Service was good and the price was fair, for Aruba. Oddly enough, the coffee was the only thing lacking in this breakfast... More

We wanted to venture off our resort and have something different from all of the American style meals. Found this place on trip advisor and gave it a try. Had the blueberry pancakes and the banana walnut honey pancakes. Both were delicious and huge! Could probably just get one and share. If you want something different with some Dutch flavor,... More

Have been going to Aruba for a few years now and never visited this restaurant until January 5, 2017 to have a birthday breakfast celebration for my mom. The pancakes are delicious and worth the wait so be prepared to wait in line as this restaurant is first come first serve and is always busy. Mom and I split the... More

The savory pancakes were a hit. Tender and full of flavor, while they don't come with sides the pancakes themselves are very filling. Delicious orange juice and a friendly staff!

The breakfast was terrible. The eggs had some sort of stringy substance in them, the bacon was more like bacon crumbles. The toast was cold and hard and I didn't even dare to try the silver dollar pancakes after the birds ate off of them. It took 20 minutes to get this breakfast and the place was not crowded. This...

We ate dinner here in January 2017. We ordered grouper and chicken schnitzel. They were accompanied by potatoes, salad, and melon slices. The portions were large, and the schnitzels were tastier than Madame Jeannette's. Our Dutch waitress was very attentive and helpful. $41 for two entrées, excluding drinks, tax, and service charge. We compared this experience with Madame Jeanette's, which... More

Another couple had sat down after us was served before us and were finished before we even got our food . I finally said something to the server and... More

Great food, was hard to find on our own in rental car, but worth it. Only downside is it's in town, no ocean breeze so it was kinda warm....

Thank Kurt H
