Great dining experience

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

Jan 27, 2016 - posted by
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.

We are so glad that we found Carambola restau

Oct 17, 2015 - posted by
My wife and I have been coming to Aruba once a year for the past 8 years and we found Carambola during this October 2015 visit. A very welcoming place, from the moment we walked in we knew we found a special place. The smile and hello from the friendly singing bartender, to the pleasant greeting and attentive service of our awesome server, Eduardo Thiel, to the absolutely wonderful seafood meal that we both enjoyed so very much. Our server, Eduardo, described the meals perfectly and we were so pleased with our dinner. We have added Carambola to our "Aruba must visit" restaurant list and can't wait to go again when we return next year. The atmosphere is so relaxing, the video's bring you back in time and make for a fun filled, enjoyable visit. Thank you again for wonderful evening!

Magnificent

Sep 24, 2015 - posted by
My wife and I were in Aruba on our honeymoon and Carambola was recommended to us by our Concierge. When we arrived we were greeted nicely by the staff and they prepared a table we specifically asked for. Our waiter Eduardo Thiel was fantastic and the food the best we have ever eaten. We have eaten all over the world and Carambola is the most magnificent bar none. They also supplied us a surprise desert for our honeymoon. Most recommended.

Great waiter Jenny Ramirez

Sep 5, 2015 - posted by
I went to Carambola restaurant twice within one week.
The food was great, very hot and fast served.
We were enchanted and in love by the amazing waiter Jenny Ramirez.
She capitivated us with her smile and for being so happy and friendly.

I had never had Scargot before and it was just great.
Caný wait for next year to come to go back to eat Scargot at Carambola and also to see our special and beloved new friend Jenny.

Thanks Jenny for being so nice. The best waiter in the world for sure.

Awesome Find

Aug 23, 2015 - posted by
We were staying at Tropicana with my father in law who cannot walk too far so we take him in his wheelchair. Found Carambola as it was easy to get to. What a find! They were so attentive to his needs, service was excellent as well as the food. We were so pleased we went there 3 x's in two weeks. Alcoholic beverages were pricey but the food was exceptional and well worth the money. Can't wait to go back to Aruba and definitely go back to Carambola.
