We had been to Yemanja in the past and enjoyed the food. We had never dined on their outdoor patio. We went with another couple and liked the seating and especially liked our food. I believe the menu has changed since the last time we ate there. We were very
pleased with the menu. Our server was Ellie and did a good job. I found the choices to be 'lighter' than in the past- not too heavy on the creamy sauces. My friend had surf and turf and really liked her meal. I had a delicious chicken dish. The drinks were also very good and wine was well-priced. We were too full for dessert. We will return here as our party of 4 were very pleased.

Great menu, attentive staff and they even serve red wine at the proper temperatue. My wife and I have eaten here on each of our visits to the island and have found the food to be top notch. The preparations are flavorful and the menu is extensive. Reasonable prices for the island, 4 glasses of wine, 2 entrees and an appetizer came to $150 before tip.

Great gluten free menu items. Reasonable prices for fine dining. Good atmosphere. Parking can be a challenge during busy tourist season so think about taking a taxi.

Went for dinner after spending the day downtown, definitely need reservations as it fills up quickly. Staff was great and super friendly, very attentive. The food was even better, from the homemade, grilled bread to the soup and salads, to the main entrees. Only disappointment was we were too full to try the dessert! Definitely a must go when in Aruba!

Returned to Yemanja on our yearly trek to Aruba. Service was good. Food disappointing and not consistent with our past visits. Concencus at the table was that everything tasted pre-cooked and simply warmed. There wasn't a single entree or appetizer that was very good and nothing even close to great. We will not be returning. Something has changed.
