    It used to be on our "must eat" list every single year. We stopped going two years ago after poor service and a change in the menu.

    We went again last November. OK food, decent Keshi Yena, if you like that. Not much atmosphere. Not bad for local flavor.

    All the people we used to know who worked there are gone. I have the same sentiments as Lisa. This used to be our FAVORITE restaurant in Aruba and we would eat here twice on every trip since 1996. In 2008, I went and had a "so-so" meal and chalked it up to a bad night. Went last Sept. with my hubby and he said the same thing - the recipes have changed (we've been getting the same dishes for YEARS and they're not as good anymore) and waitstaff wasn't the best (fish wasn't prepared the way I ordered it, wrong wine served, etc.) So after a couple of mediocre meals there, we've now crossed it off our list - and we're very, very sad about it. It's like saying goodbye to a good friend. But, I think if you haven't been there before and don't know what the old recipes were like, you probably wouldn't notice anything.
