The food was not worth the price. The grouper was overcooked and dried out and the Filet was undercooked. Filet was requested well done and it was rare. Escargot with Angel hair was very good. Fried oreos dessert was very rich but good. Service was slow. There are much better places to eat in Aruba. If you are looking to eat on the beach go to FLying Fishbone instead of this place.

OK, we had had a great time in Aruba, our first time but my father-in-law had been there 15 odd times.

The restaurant is relatively new so it was a first for us all, so we were all excited. Wow the greeting we got from the waitress, (never came once to enquire about how our meal was getting on(owner?), her demeanor and the weird feeling we were putting her out was an alarm bell for me...

Food was ok, but they butchered the fish by cooking it for far too long and the vegetables seemed undercooked.

Been there done that, probably never go back as there are much better places to go, although the atmosphere was wonderful.

I took my wife to the old man and the sea and we were both overjoyed with the quality and the service in every way. I typically go twice a year to Aruba and this restaurant was by far the best one me and my wife has been to so far. And trust me we've been to pretty much all of them. For anyone reading this, don't just read the hype, I'm a chef and i've worked in many places in manhattan, this place is amazing. When in aruba, think of the old man.

The best experience we had in Aruba. The food is excellent. Thumbs up for the chef!! We had grilled fresh lobster and the fresh broiled whole red snapper. service is very very good, very attentive. the place is beautifull and romantic, it should be included in the top restaurants of the caribbean. We travel a lot and we must say that it is the best experience. Worth the trip, worth every penny we spend! We will be back in december!

The food was ok. It wasn't worth the 150 bill. This was our last night and every other dinner we had was probably better, for less. The atmosphere was good. We were told about the place by another couple we met at happy hour. They said that the restaurant will send someone to pick you up and take you back since the place is in the middle of nowhere. Well they sent someone and he made us wait at another hotel and then we got there 15 minutes late and they made us pay for the cab ride home. Bottom line is a bill in excess of 180 for 2 people where we could spend half that and still have as much fun with better food.

The wife and I dinned here August 8, 2010. Very romantic setting. They have a private table setting (under cover) that you can rent for I believe 3 hours for an additional $100 US dollars. There is also another private setting that is not under cover that is also private called the pier. No extra cost to dine at this table but you must call in advance to reserve. This place is right next to The Flying Fishbone. I cannot remember what my wifeís dish was called but it consisted of chicken, vegetables and pasta. The flavor was just ok and the chicken was VERY dry. I had the filet mignon. Iíve cooked better filets than this one. It was served cold and the cut of the meat was fatty if you can believe that. Overall the setting is wonderful and possibly I had a bad cut of meat and the chief just didnít have it going on this night as I said before the wifeís dish was just ok. The prices are on the higher side (two apps and two entrees with NO drinks plus the 15% added service charge was right around $100 US dollars). Next visit Iíd have to read more reviews and try their seafood selection. My understanding is this place is just around one year old.

My husband and I renewed our wedding vows for our 50th wedding anniversary. My husband, myself, children and granddaughter were there. The Old Man and the Sea did such a wonderful job. The food and service was excellent. Ihey made our special day perfect. We were on the private island which only added to the celebration. Also must thank Rev. Gibson who performed the ceramony. He made it very special!
