    The wine pairing is optional. They have a full bar there so you can get anything you like - a glass or bottle of wine from the wine list, mixed drinks, beer, etc.

    Carte Blanche Restaurant Reservations

    How far in advance should reservations be made at Carte Blanche Restaurant? I heard that you sit on bar stools. I am recovering from total knee replacement and still in pain. Sitting on a bar stool might be very uncomfortable. We would like to have dinner there but wondering about the seating arrangements.

    You should make reservations at least a couple of months in advance.

    You DO NOT sit on bar stools. You sit at a bar that is only chair height on one side - so you are sitting in a regular chair. The other side of the bar (where Glen and Dennis do their magic) is sunk into the floor so that they are standing on the other side of the bar as they're making dinner, drinks, etc. with the kitchen area in full view.

    Photo of bar seating area at Carte Blanche in the photo below that was taken on Jan. 2nd - hopefully, you're able to see the "regular chairs" you sit in.

    You'll be fine dressed casually in shorts and a collared shirt. My husband wore shorts and a tropical shirt while I wore shorts and a dressy T. Last time we were there the crowd was mixed. There were a few people dressed to the nines and most were somewhere in between. Everyone gets so into the food presentation, no one cares what anyone is wearing. The owners were dressed casually as well. Enjoy!!!

    Anyone have their contact information?

    I sent them an email (two actually) over the past week to try and make a reservation in March. We are 6 people and I think that we would have a great time there as our friends love wine pairing. The two couples have never been to Aruba and I thought this would be a great night out. However, online reservations will only allow 4 people to book on one reservation so I attempted an email request. NO RESPONSE. I could easily make two reservation but I just thought this might be easier.
