    The salad bar is terrific. The only problem with it is you must be careful not to overload on salad and miss the main event, which is a selection of perfectly cooked meats. We used to go every trip, but now only occasionally. I do miss leaving in a meat coma after a wonderful evening of dining. Service and food has always been spot on, and I swear they have some of the best sangria on the island.

    We've visited many times and always enjoy the experience.... the salad bar is fantastic and the meats, served tableside, are always very good. The atmosphere and the bustle of the restaurant exude a wonderful vibe. All in all, a fun dining adventure.

    We've never been. We used to enjoy Amazonia several years ago when they were really good. The fact that they are closed now confirms they haven't been good for a few years. How does TdB compare to Amazonia when it was good?

    We tried Amazonia our first couple of years and switched to TdB because we knew the salad bar was far superior and guessed (rightfully so) that the meats would be better variety and fresher due to the store volume..... We did like TdB better.

    We use to eat here a lot because being a local, they would give us 50% off up to 10 people. Now that Amozonia went out of business, now they give us like 30% off. Its a great place to eat but it comes up to like $65 per person. That does not include drinks or deserts. It can be pricey but very good food and a great salad bar.
    Snorkel Mangel Halto, day or night with a waterscooter. Check out our website. E-mail Stuart at arubabob@live.com or call Stuart local: 745-7459 Or visit: www.arubabobsnorkeling.com 50th trip Dec 11, 2017

    for that kind of pricing, i would prefer an outdoor garden or waterfront seating.
    typically at MJ we spend about that amount or less per person.

    however it is apples vs oranges TDB vs MJ

    really cannot compare.

    Texas de Brazil is one of our favorite places to eat in Aruba and we visit every trip. Even if you've tried the chain in the USA, be sure to try the one in Aruba as it is known as the best location based on its service standard and quality of meat. The cost to eat at Texas De Brazil is $44.99 per person (including the meats) or you can enjoy the salad bar only for $29.99. There are several coupons on the island for 15% off so that brings the cost down to $38.25 per person. You can get 20% off if you are in the military or a veteran, law enforcement, firefighter, teacher or EMS (you just need to bring an ID and the discount will apply for up to 8 people in your group). Here are some dining tips:
    - Eat lightly through the day and avoid snacks so you have a good appetite when you go to dinner
    - Order their Sangria (it is out of this world - they marinate all the fruit for over a week )
    - The salad bar is fantastic (so many wonderful things to eat, including sushi) but restrain yourself and only get a small plate from the salad bar
    - You will have cheesy bread on the table - have one only or resist the temptation all together (another thing they put on the table to fill you up)
    - As the gaucho servers bring the meats out, do not feel that you have to eat the entire piece they give to you. Take a few bites and then set it aside so you have room to sample all the meats, and then you can return to the portions on your plate that you liked the best.
    - The Picanha (pronounced like pecan-ya), is the best cut of meat. Be sure to ask your server to have that meat brought over to you as soon as you start your dinner. It is delicious, and an expensive cut of meat (= best value), so best to eat that early before you get too full to try it.
    - You can always request any of the meats - so if you found a style that you really liked, just request it again and they will return as many times as you like.
    - My favorite "dessert" is to save all of the fruit from my Sangria glass, and then order a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert and I pour all the sangria fruit over the ice cream. It is delicious and serves a dual purpose as an "after dinner drink" (the fruit is quite potent).
