What a cool spot to dine at! The island ambience, views and menu selections were perfect. Sitting right over the water was really nice as the sun set on my first night in Aruba! It was a nice walk up the beach from our resort.

Meals are comparable to US prices for a vacation area. 2 adults could have drinks apps and meals for $60 - $150 depending on what you get and how much you drink and eat. Very casual for a beach day lunch and casual low key... More

I did not try to use a credit card but I saw others that did. I used cash to avoid all of the fees and security challenges while in Aruba. I did use a credit card at the hotel.
