My wife and I took advantage of the early bird special (find it online) and were seated immediately. The waiters and waitress were attentive and friendly, the atmosphere relaxed, the food fresh and hot, and the special was reasonably priced for a starter, entree, dessert, and coffee. My favorite part of the meal was the coffee and flan - both... More

It happened here. It had to happen once. The worst eating experience since our first meal here in 1989! Horrible Sauvignon Blanc, their special for the day, veal chop, delivered RAW instead of medium, and eggplant parmesan instead of eggplant rollatini. We've eaten here half a dozen times or more and enjoyed slightly overpriced delicious Italian meals but this was... More

We visit Sole Mare every year with our good friends Nick and Teresa. They take me here for my birthday. They will prepare dishes not on the menu. The food is as always very good. The antipasto was huge as compared to the shrimp cocktail where you only got 3 shrimp for $15. The service is impeccable.

Great atmosphere, great food, 6 people, 2 couples got the pasta wheel and pasta, amazing and always good. Wine very good choices, service seems to have been improved, but they were not very busy at the time we were there. Overall a great place for dinner.

My wife had lasagna, said it was excellent. They have the largest shrimp on the island, they claim. they are jumbos for sure. Cocktail cooked perfectly. I had Sole Mare Special. It included a nice size lobster tail, mussels, shrimp, clams and calamari. For an additional $10, they added fresh grouper filet (catch of the day). It was all wrapped... More

We dined at Sole Mare on a reco from our hotel concierge. We were so glad we opted for Italian one night in Aruba. Sole Mare was a complete surprise hit with our family. We shared a few apps. and then shared the pasta which is made table side in the large cheese wheel. Everything was perfect, from the drinks,... More
