    This place is an absolute must! It was breathtaking and my food was the best I had on the island. I had the stuffed chicken breast with truffle sauce that was delicious. When we visit te island again we will definitely be going back!!

    This was our first time @ Old Man and the Sea and we chose here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. First of all, the views and the ambience were incredible~ the beauty is breathtaking!! We were seated in an over the water palapa at a fabulous table. Our waiter was wonderful and even serenaded us at the end of the evening. Such a beautiful sentiment. ❤️ There was also live entertainment, which we really enjoyed. Unfortunately, the food was just ok. We both had the catch of the day, red snapper, and it was very dry and the flavor was very bland. We probably won’t return as it is quite a drive from the high rise area and there are so many amazing dining options in Aruba; however, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Old Man and the Sea.

    A beautiful atmosphere inside, but unfortunately our dinning experience was not up to par with our typical expectations. They were out of the appetizer we wanted to order, our dinner took over and hour to receive. The waiter did not return to ask if we wanted another beverage in that time span. The dinner was OK, but was well over priced for what we received. Aside from the ambience of the restaurant, it was not a top experience and off our list in the future.

    My spouse and I visited The Old Man and the Sea restaurant in Aruba a few days after our wedding, and it was nothing short of magical. We had the pleasure of sitting at one of the tables on the piers, surrounded by stunning views and a serene atmosphere. Our waiter, Wendell, truly made our experience unforgettable. He was beyond fantastic, providing exceptional service throughout the evening. After dinner, he played "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran on his guitar and sang to us, adding a beautifully romantic touch to our night. The food was absolutely delicious, with every dish bursting with flavor. The drinks were amazing, perfectly complementing the wonderful meal. The vibes and views were unparalleled, creating an ambiance that is hard to beat. We highly recommend The Old Man and the Sea restaurant to anyone visiting Aruba. It was a highlight of our trip and a memory we will cherish forever.

    The setting was beautiful and our server Wendell was lovely. He serenaded us for our Anniversary. The food was good,but small portions for the price. My steak was cooked to perfection but the scallops were a little overdone. All in all it is definitely a beautiful location for a romantic dinner.
