    Well actually the place is nice, but when I went there with my partner we were pretty dissapointed with the service, we we're there around 10:30pm sit at the bar, asked for some drinks and the menu.we waited for the girl to take the order, and when we told her we we're ready ..OHH SORRY KITCHEN ALLREADY CLOSED!! ra ra ra...we just left

    Had drinks there the other night. They were fine and the little appetizers they served to our group were good. But have not had a meal yet. Maybe in the next couple of weeks. Will report back.

    I think that this place is pretty interesting. When i was there I got a create your own wok! I think the food was very good! The drinks I ordered were nicely made also! I recommend eating there! I heard that the kitchen is now open until 2am. There aren't many other places in the high rise area open that late! I would go back for sure to eat again.

    Chino Latino

    I mentioned in a separate post how restaurants have slipped in service and food. Here's an example.

    We go to Chino Latino, a place where many months ago I enjoyed a nice cocktail party with good appetizers. Not anymore.

    I could talk about the absent service that did have time to share a cigarette with the other waitress while standing at the kitchen door. I could mention the out of the freezer into the deepfry food. I might mention the rice on the side had been sitting around so long it was crunchy and the vegetables cooked so long as to be completely tasteless. I could mention the confused and diffident service person who took over for the second one who replaced the first who disappeared but then reappeared at the very end. And I could also mention the 15% service charge for this nonsense that exceeded a cost of $68, which I paid as a sort of offering to the Gods for intestinal peace.

    Instead I'll say that the host is a very congenial fellow who should work somewhere worthy of his decency instead of this nicely decorated waste of prime real estate. Maybe your (dear reader) experience will be better.

    If you are a restauranteur in Aruba, I hope you are paying attention. This is as mild as my reviews are going to be for places that are shameful. Enough said.
