    Promenade

    Paul and i dined tonight at the Promenade.
    Haven't been there in a few years.

    They still have the $30 pp tapas/appetizer menu as well as the a'la carte menu.

    We opted for the tapas/appetizer menu.

    We tried a escargot YUM, seafood casserole, filet mignon, shrimp cocktail, another seafood casserole, soup, mushroom caps and mixed salad..........and i ATE dessert first! apple pie w/ ice cream. hahahahahaha

    we never have room for dessert so tonight i said, dessert first.

    everything was good/great.
    we'd probably go again.
    excellent service and very comfortable seating.

    I love their chocolate cake. I didn't go myself, but friends brought it back for me. It is hard to get really good chocolate cake in Aruba. I am going to try this restaurant next time my husband comes down. Haven't been there since it was in San Nicholas.

    we had outstanding service. water glasses never empty and a waitress and waiter were always ready and available.

    few yrs ago, our waiter (and i think his name was luigi or lou was a former waiter of french steakhouse) was mean and miserable. he was complaining of sore back and sore knees and making us fee like we were inconveniencing him. we felt terrible having him wait on us with his maladies.
    i do not know why he had no helper that night.
    it was lousy service then because of his being in pain and nasty about it and that was the last time we were there.

    when we made reservations for promenade, we inquired about the "wait staff" and the waiter that i mentioned in this post. they told me he is now retired and recovering from double knee surgery.

    I loved this place the last time I was there (May 2009). I don't see it mentioned often on the boards. When I was there last I was with a girlfriend & on this trip I am looking forward to introducing my husband to it.
