Having read recent reviews praising Lazy Turtle,we were anxious to dine there again. Very disappointing experience. Arrived at our 8:30 time. Ordered the three course meal at 8:40 and waited until 9:15 for salad( both soup offerings sold out). Waited until 9:50 for our entree. Very inattentive service, very loud surroundings. after 9pm the restaurant was getting pretty quiet. Servers were doing side work rather than checking on the few diners left in the restaurant. On the positive side the food was good when we finally got it and the value was very good. Not sure how other dinners experienced such good service?

My steak was cooked perfectly. I wasn't happy with the Mojito because they put lemonade or margarita mix in it. Shomara was our server and fixed it right away. Great service!

We enjoyed a really great dinner at the The Lazy Turtle and the service was wonderful. We had the coconut soup, the African smoked grouper in a banana leaf, and the 3 course dinner special with griled grouper as the entree and all of the food was prepared and presented perfectly. Our servers, Shomara and Luisa, were attentive and did a superb job to ensure our dinner experience was outstanding. The owner, Izzy, stopped by our table to greet us and make sure that everything was going well and was a very warm and hospitable host. We've dined in many Aruba restaurants over the years and The Lazy Turtle stands out as one of the best casual dining restaurants with consistently well prepared food and excellent service.

This place has alsways been one of my favorites. The grouper and plantain chips are to die for. I simply plan my vacation around what days I get to go there. Never missed a time in 40 trips to Aruba. Thank you.
