    We were there during restaurant week in 2012 and I think it was the first one. I seem to remember it being in a different format for some reason and not many restaurants participated.

    The first 3 or 4 years we went they had something where a bunch of restaurants set up in an outside area and served samples of their food for a few bucks. I think it was called the Watapani(sp) festival or something like that. It was a neat place to try different stuff without ordering a full dinner. I have not seen it for years but it may be held when we are not there.

    I like the idea of setting up tables and having the opportunity to sample different restaurants offerings. Here at home (Boston area) restaurant week has become something to be avoided. The idea was good; go to a restaurant; order from a fixed price menu at a reduced price. A nice opportunity to try some of the higher end places. Unfortunately we found that most all of the participating restaurants served basically the same menu. Servers weren't happy because the bills were lower and therefore so we're their tips. My feeling is the A team wasn't in the kitchen. Hopefully, it's different in Aruba! I tried to check out their site but it was down for maintenance.

    what mostly appeals to me at the cafe' plaza are the late night sandwiches after a winning or losing night in the casino
    however they sometimes have awesome soup on their specials.
    i have always enjoyed everything that i have ever eaten there, but have never sat there for a real meal (salad, entree)
    usually just a sandwich and a cold beverage or hot tea for us.
