Taste of Belgium Restaurant
The word unique comes to mind when talking about Taste of Belgium: located inside the cozy courtyard of the Palm Beach Plaza shopping mall, it combines the hustle and bustle of shoppers with the leisurely pleasures of sitting outside on the terrace or in the unique decor inside.Taste of Belgium Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with opening hours from 7 am until 1 am; the kitchen is open until 11 pm. It is a great place for meeting friends for coffee, lunch or a glass of wine or grabbing a bite before catching a movie. Breakfast, lunch and dinner options are varied and attractive.

Very nice for drinks, lunch, dinner

We have been here a couple of times now during our holiday. Every time we had very nice service, good food, liked the deserts also, nothing to complain about. Onion soup is something you must try, is just the way an onion soup must be!
Special thanks to Anne and Bas for the nice service and good advice!

OK Dinner.

Jul 9, 2013 - posted by

This was a first time for us. The service was supurb! The food was OK and the Belgiun Frites nothing but a plain old french fry..... somehow I expected more. Do be careful about the Martini of the Day..... and the beer of the day..... they are 'check builders'.... but quite good! We sat outside.... but that was overlooking the mall...dunno if I want to do that again. The inside dining room was quite nice! DW had the salmon special and I had ????? Her meal was exceptional... mine was just OK.... Don't know that I would go out of my way to eat here again. There are too many other choices that I like better.

First our waitress was wonderful, it is a shame she won't see this as she was headed back home in just a few days.

The food here has mixed reviews my wife and I loved our appetizers, especially the stuffed mushrooms with goat cheese. The entrees were a bit disappointing. My wife had a dish over puff pastry that was a bit dry. So some items were really good some just okay. I think we would try this again and make different choices.

The atmosphere is just okay, if you sit outside you have the noise from the mall and inside is a bit stark and noisy.

This is a place with a bit more casual meal than many that we had. I would try it again in the future.

Cute Belgian Restaurant

Being a local that has worked with Belgians and visited Belgium quite a lot in the past, I was very happy when a ‘Taste Of Belgium’ adapted their menu after they moved to Palm Beach Mall. I could finally have “Waterzooi” and other Belgian delicacies again while living on Aruba! Even though the “Waterzooi” disappointed me a little bit, there are still quite a lot dishes I like. Their steamed mussels for example are fabulous: also one of my husband’s favorites. Last night ‘A Taste Of Belgium’ surprised me with their ability to mix and create! Due to Betico Day (a public holiday on the island) they created a mixture of Belgian, American and Aruban kind of dishes of the day. The local fish chowder and ‘criollo’ grouper with the lovely ‘pan bati’s, were delicious. Especially my daughter loved the local fish chowder creation. Our waiter Sebastian Content, amazed us with his friendliness and wine & beer knowledge.

Horrible food

The place looks good on the outside, so me and my husband decided to give it a try. Our experience was awful! The food was terrible and cold.
Won't be returning.

Not perfect, but good

Aug 8, 2012 - posted by
My wife and I had a tasty breakfast at Taste of Belguim. It's located in the southeast corner of the Palm Beach Plaza mall. The entrance is in the interior courtyard and there's plenty of parking. There are tables in the courtyard that (like the mall) were empty on a Sunday morning. The space inside is large and minimalist, but they've made an attempt to warm it up a bit with some couches around a fireplace and smoking booths in the far corner. The croissants were delicious. The chocolate croissant was untraditional--it was a croissant sliced with chocolate sauce--but very yummy. My waffles were a bit tough, which was surprising. The lacked any crispness and tasted like they may have been made the day before (or maybe the batter was just overbeatened). The flavor was good, though. My wife's eggs and toasted were perfectly cooked and came with an abundant amount of cheese and fresh peppers, as requested. The server was super sweet and really on the ball. Overall, it was inexpensive and pretty good.

Taste of ``Belgium``?

Jul 30, 2012 - posted by
I really wish the name of the restaurant would have been infused in the food that was prepared and served tonight. None of the dishes and I do mean none of the dishes had semblance of herbs, spices or even salt and pepper used in the cooking process. Adding any of these items would have greatly enhanced the flavor of the soup, salad vinaigrette, fish and meat. My son had the fettucine with truffle. He took one bite and literally had to return the plate back. We were not expecting that this restaurant would have had home made pasta with taste, but, everyone knows you must add salt to boiling water which will add taste to the pasta. This restaurant will not be on my return to list.

Fantastisch

Mijn vrouw en kinderen hebben hier de afgelopen vakantie 3x gegeten en het was iedere keer top kwaliteit. Van de kwaliteit van de gerechten tot het personeel, hebben we van a tot z genoten. Met stip de beste restaurant ervaring op Aruba! Voordat we weer naar nederland vliegen, komen we zeker nog een paar keer eten om de rest van de menukaart te proberen!!

Love the new location

Jul 6, 2012 - posted by
We were big fan's of Taste of Belgium at their old location. We never had a dinner there - but would stop by for a lunch and a beer or a dessert.

We went to the Palm Beach Plaza Mall to visit Casa Tua Mediterranean which was out of business and we saw the new Taste of Belgium. So we went in for dinner.

The restaurant is really gorgeous - clean and modern and elegant. The beer selection is superb and if you order a fine Belgian beer they serve it on a silver tray - really cool!

Dinner was superb - we ordered several different dishes and noone had any complaints. Pretty good value - and make sure you save room for the Belgian Waffles + Ice Cream for dessert!
