Great place for our last night

Dec 16, 2015 - posted by
My husband and I spent our last two nights at the Renaissance Hotel. We walked to the West Deck after sunset. We were very pleased with the quality of the food. We bumped into a couple who we had met on our plane trip to Aruba. They also ate at the West deck their last night and loved it, too. I think the service needs a little attention, maybe more wait staff. They became very busy after we had arrived.

West Deck Restaurant Aruba

Had dinner at West Deck last night (29.11). Surroundings were wonderful overlooking the beach. We had not reserved a table and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table but it was well worth the wait. Food and service were great.

Perfect Oceanside Taste

Feb 1, 2015 - posted by
This is our 4th visit and it just keeps getting better! We were so happy to have John as our waiter again. He is pleasant, knowledgeable and caring. Drinks were superb. Mike had the Governors Bay Beach Salad. I had the delicious Lobster and Stone Crab salad roll. For an appetizer we split the perfectly seasoned and lightly breaded calimari!
We will be back a few times during our stay again this year.

Horible experience

I'm ARUBIAN, and I absolutely will not return to this restaurant because it lacks service, the staff insult you and very discriminating , food wise the taste is good, price is not cheap, on the whole many other places to be treated with respect and at least service. Don't go there unless you. Realy have no choice
It's a pity as I personally know that the owners are fine people.

Skip it they don't care 2 thumbs down

We had been there last year and loved it. This year I had heard that it was not as good but wanted to try it again. The surrounding are great. Service worse you can imagine. It took over 45 minutes to get our food and then it was cold. When the manager on duty kept coming over to ask how everything was and we told him it was cold he did not care. They took back ribs which were brought ice cold and brought it back minus the one rib I had bitten into before I realized it was cold. My husband's rice was served so hard he could not get his fork into it.The appetizer was delivered so cold that the cheese it was topped with was not even completely melted. On the way out one of the servers asked how everything was and we told him. He called over the manager who said he knew. No apology and certainly no offer of even a free drink or dessert for our bad experience. We WILL NOT return.

Great New Place

We had a group of 8 that had gone on a sunset cruise out of the marina downtown. We went over to The West Deck, without reservations, and were treated great. We were greeted by Donald, who was our host and server. The menu has a large selection of small plates and also a lot of Caribbean dishes, as well. We ordered many different items and all were great! The Jerk Wings stood out as did the Coconut Shrimp. All were great! Cocktails were outstanding, the space is fantastic and was a great value! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for dinner downtown! We will return.

Great new place!

We love staying downtown (at the Renaissance) so were so pleased with this new addition to downtown dining options! We visited twice on our latest trip. Our server, Humberto, was a big part of enjoyment. The food was another plus--the sate, keshi yena and funchi were all excellent. The view can't be beat. A great new addition to Aruba's dining choices!!

Happy Happy!!!

Well, we heard about West Deck from friends that come twice a year. We decided to check it out after a day at Baby Beach. Even in our very casual attire,we were greated with smiles from all the staff, our drinks were amazing and the food was great. The conch fritters with the dipping sauce were tasty, as well as the grouper sandwiches. We liked it so much we came back, and were greated by Sophia who remembered our names. Everyone had fun, including the staff. We laughed about being photo bombed while Sophia took our pictures. She was so sweet. The Keeshie ( I know I spelled it wrong) that my husband tried was to die for. The burger I had was great too. We highly recomend the West Deck and look forward to going again in April 2015..Check it out.
I highly recomend this place!
