My husband and I visit Aruba each year and have always enjoyed the food at Blossoms. This June(2014)we were happy to hear that the restaurant was still open even though the Westin Resort was closed. We had their amazing Crispy Sesame Shrimp....OMG!....fantastic! We hope they relocate once the Riu opens their all inclusive renovated resort. They would do very well on their own away from the Riu.
The food is wonderful, the friendly service is superb, and the fun atmosphere at the hibachi grill make it all worth while.
Mi pareja y yo comimos espectacularmente di-vi-no. El se comio una carnota que le encanta y yo un pescadito para mantener mi figura. Tomamos vinitos ricos y nos sentamos juntitos en una mesita esquinera. Velita en mesa, cenita rica y nada caro. El servicio muy bueno y sin prejuicios de atenter una paraja g-a-y. Lo recomiendo. Lindo sitio para gente linda y bella. Muack!!
Best Chinese Food I've had
Blossoms is a must for anyone looking for great, fresh , authentic Chinese food. We have been coming to Aruba for 9 years and discovered Blossoms about 6 years ago. It is a restaurant we visit at least twice per holiday. Our waitress, Vivienne , goes above and beyond and is simply terrific. Our favourite dish is the sesame shrimp. Absolutely amazing! We also love the vegetable lomein and beef and broccoli. The beef is tender and the broccoli is cooked perfectly. Great atmosphere as well.
My wife and I went back to this restaurant a second time after a great experience last year. This is obviously a theme restaurant that entertains you from the beginning of the meal until the end. Our daughter was even involved in the preparing of the meal which makes her want to be there every year. Attentive service and a meal that flows from start to finish are definite strong assets of this restaurant. If you have children or not, you will certainly enjoy the experience.
Teppanyaki Show Just Amazing
The food was excellent, the chef's show was fun, teppanyaki grill tables are the best choice, the atmosphere is very wonderful, very good attention, totally recommended.
La comida fue excelente, el show del chef fue muy divertido, mesas de teppanyaki (parrilla) son la mejor opción, el ambiente es maravilloso, muy buena atención, totalmente recomendable.
Best sushi in Aruba!
If your going for a sushi night don't think twice about the place, Blossoms offers amazing sushi. I love sitting at the grill tables, it's so much fun for the kids too!
I absolutely love this place and return every year.
What a great evening out to this concept restaurant that had the guests involved in every matter of the meal. Terrific service and a great chef named Alex who was so accomplished in his work, he probably could have done this in his sleep. This restaurant will leave you talking about it with other people for the rest of your trip. Definitely back next year.
This place is amazing, the food tastes delicious, the service is excellent, the decor is very nice, and the restaurant is clean. This place by far is the best Chinese on the island, I visit Aruba a couple times a year and this place never fails, amazing...
Great Sushi with friendly service. The mural on the wall was very cool. Very fun place to go as well; you can watch the showman chefs as well. Very enjoyable.
When you first enter the Restaurant you notice a well balanced ambiance, where you can go from having a romantic dinner for two, to a family dinner, to a large group around the large grilling station which is manned by very personable talented chefs.
Our friends ordered the Chinese food we ordered the sushi. It was fresh and extremely tatsty, the Duck was out of this world crispy on the out side and juicy and cooked on the inside.
My favorite from the sushi side was definately the crab salad and the dragon roll.
Service was fast and friendly and the restaurant was extremely clean. The prices are moderate to high but you get what you pay for.
The only draw back for me is that the toilet facilities are outside the restaurant in the hotel.
There were 12 of us - we sat at the hibachi table. Food was good - not exceptional but had a lot of fun. The chef was very entertaining and child friendly - he let them all get up with him and help with the cooking.
Good Chinese food. The place was packed. Service was good - friendly and efficient. My choice was marked spicy. I guess that would depend on the diner. I found it mild at best. One person in our party orderd sushi. Great to have so many options. Everyone was happy!
Ate on the Japanese side with the tableside cooking, which was very entertaining as always. Food was good - shrimp and beef were very good but the chicken was not as good as the shrimp.
Some of the best sushi I have eaten. The selections are good but evrything we ordered was good. The spicy Tobikko outstabding and a new Super Crunchy roll explodes with flavor. Everything is very fresh and tasty. Kate the waitress was a real charm. This is a weekly stop for the past 5 years. Harold the sushi chef is pleasant and helpful.I recommend the sushi here. The Chinese food is also very good. Will be back again this week.
Our review is based on service at the Sushi bar. The service at the tables was below par (although the food was still good)
The sushi was fresh and well prepared. Last vacation we ate here 3 times over a 2 week period and weren't disappointed on any visit to the bar.
Very nice food and service, we took the sizzling Mignon, very good.
The sushi is excellent!
On the island 12/1-8.Found the food to be very tasty & fresh.This is the 3rd year to this place.Only problem was that the hostess wanted to seat us on the aisle that you walk into place saying that the Chinese dining room was full.I took a peak and it was not so I asked to be seated in there which someone else did.I asked him to go back & asked her why she lied.Never got an answer. When I left I gave her a look & she turned away.
Blossoms is a terrific restaurant. The chefs are very entertaining and the food is excellent. We had a great time celebrating a 50th birthday! Bring a big appetite! Portions are large and very tasty!
Ate here last night with a friend. Had high expectations, but was a bit disappointed. Personnel was friendly, but maitre D only had eyes for tourists, not for us locals. We were in the Chinese section but could "enjoy" the noise (huge gong every few minutes) and the smell from the Japanese teppan part of the restaurant.
Was also disappointed because I asked the waitress how hot and spicy my dish would be. I asked for mild, but it wasn't hot and spicy at all! Meat was terribly sweet. Presentation of the food on the plates was nothing fancy. Finally waited hours to get our check. Food too expensive for what you get. Won't go again.
Very Very Good. No MSG and still taste very good. 6th year in a row thank you Blossoms we will be back.
I come from time to time to the Chinese part and was several times at the Japanese cooking table. The quality of the food was always excellent, the service good as well. At the cooking table the preparation is much better than at Benihana and the food comes all in time. At the Chinese part I took Sissling mignon or Emperor Beef. Very tasty ! Prices are high, but I did get same quality not better, yet at another place.
This was our 8th visit to this restaurant in the JAPANESE section (we have gone to the Chinese food section as well). We are very aware of the "rushed" atmosphere here but this visit was definatley the worst. We had barely sat down when menus we given and orders were taken within "moments" of our arrival. The prices from last year have skyrocketed and we questioned whether this place has priced itself out of our dinning options. We can go to other restuarants for the same money and get a real dinning experience.
The salads were brought about 3 minutes after ordering. We came as a group so we all sat at one table. We had not finished our salad when the soup had arrived. They couldn't even wait until we had finished and cleared away the salad before placing the next course in front of us. The "show" which we had seen many times was definatley not as good as in previous years not was the food.
Knowing that this restaurant basically is an eat and run establishment (last year we were lingering for about 10 minutes after we paid the bill and they asked us to leave) we chose to come here on our travel day as we would be tired and hungry. However, sadly, with their price increase we don't feel we can justify the cost vs. the service/food.
We ate at Blossoms on our first night in Aruba on the Chinese side. The food and service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant for the Chinese side. I did not try the Japanese tableside cooking.
A beautiful restaurant if you choose to have teppanyaki grill. Fish tanks and the grills make for an exciting experience. My Wife and I decided to have chinese food. We were led to an empty round room with little atmosphere. We ordered a Pu-Pu platter for two and Blossom's fried rice. The food was great but the portions very small. Disappointing. If we go back we will be dining in the teppanyaki grill room.
The food was OK and the chef at the Japanese communal table was mildly entertaining. My beef is with the menu.
Outside, the posted menu we looked at before going in prominately listed an "Early Bird" special. When we went inside, the menu we were given didn't have anything about an "early bird" on it even though we were there way before the 6:00 PM time stated on the menu outside. When I asked the waiter why we couldn't get the lower price, he said we had to order the "Kids Meal" to get the lower price. Talk about a bait and switch. I felt like leaving but we were hungry and ordered the Kids meal/early bird anyways but felt cheap doing it in front of other diners at the communal table. The chef didn't say anything, but my steak was a smaller portion and was given to me before others ordering the same meal on the "adult" menu.
