Fantastic Meal

We had an opening for a reservation in the middle of our stay. After looking through reviews and recommendations from the concierge, we decided to go to Carambola and I am very happy we made this choice. The food was phenomenal. I started with the calamari and then had the lamb chops. Both were extremely flavorful and beyond my expectations. The servers are attentive and do their job very well. We loved Alfred. I would highly recommend this as one of your first choice dining experiences. It is worth every penny

I arrived at carambola on a Tuesday evening. the place was quite busy but I was still served with a lot of care and patience by the staff. The food was great and the atmosphere makes me feel wonderful while having my dinner with my wife. I will definitely be back. I would HIGHLY recommend the fajita. Everything was fresh and full of taste.

We had the pleasure of dining at Carambola for the first time this year. The food was delicious and the service was the best we've had on the island. Our server, Eduardo, was outstanding. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Don't Go Here

They don't know how to take a reservation. Arrived on time and they didn't have a table ready but our table was sitting there, Told it was reserved. Yes for me. The steak ordered medium came out well done. They took it back and then returned with the steak raw, twice. After asking for it medium, we were told maybe butterfly style would be better. They don't know how to cook a steak. My son eventually said just give me the fish special. It was so-so at best. He also got it after everyone else had finished their dinners. The service was fair. They had a large party upstairs and that was the excuse for poor attention. I have been going to Aruba for over 25 yrs and like to try a new restaurant each trip. Never going back. Do yourself a favor, there are so many better restaurants and the price was no bargain either.

Excellent evening out

We had the pleasure of visiting Aruba in November, 2015. The best restaurant experience we had was Carambola . The food was excellent and service just as good.
Our server was Eduardo and he was friendly and very helpful.

The 3C chowder was out of this world. Our whole meal was so good I was wishing we were staying longer so we could go back. I had red snapper which I would recommend.
The gentleman at the next table said his steak was the best he had ever had and cooked to perfection.
Looking forward to going back and this time we will go twice.

Hidden Jewel.

We were staying at the Paradise Beach Villas Resort and didn't fell like going into town or the hotel zone for dinner. We decided to stay put and try the Carambola. PHENOMENAL CHOICE! The facility is well appointed with a great atmosphere and we were warmly greeted. The service, especially Jenny and Mario was the best, and dinner recommendations were spot on. The food was great and well apportioned. Absolutely try the Peanut Soup and save room for desert! They tend to seat patrons indoors so it looks empty from the street; but it isn't. We enjoyed the experience so much, we brought the rest of the family the next night. Someone named Ted wrote a review saying he thought the great reviews were being spoofed by the restaurant. They are not. We vacationed from New Hampshire and couldn't be more pleased with the Carambola. GO THERE AND EAT!

This is such a beautiful restaurant! The food was fantastic. They have the best calamari I have ever had. Jenny was our server and she certainly added to our wonderful experience. Her recommendations were excellent and her friendliness was delightful. We will definitely be going back.
