Aruba offers the best fine dining in the Caribbean according to the 2015 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice™ awards, ranking first place with gourmet studio 2 Fools and a Bull and second place with the exclusive Carte Blanche restaurant.
TripAdvisor has highlighted the world’s top fine dining establishments based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for restaurants worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
2 Fools and a Bull Fool #1 Paul Faas: “We are very excited that our fellow foodies and culinary travelers have recognized our gourmet studio. In February 2012, around the time we opened our doors, we had placed some ads in the local newspapers and after 5 months we were already the nr. 1 restaurant on Aruba according to TripAdvisor. Currently we are booked 7 to 8 months in advance but there are always cancellations, so it pays to call. With us it’s all about providing our guests with the ultimate surprise dinner party!”
Carte Blanche, one of the most exclusive restaurants on the island, has consistently ranked in the top 2 Aruba restaurants for more than 5 years. Restaurant manager Glen Bonset: “ We are flattered to be honored by such a big international community of diners! This ranking is proof that our unique concept of offering the highest quality of food, service and ambiance to a small group of guests while allowing them to interact with the head chef and each other works!” Head chef Dennis van Daatselaar: “ Aruba pampers its guests so well, and dining in our restaurant is the perfect embodiment of this pampering. Every day we do our utmost best to give our diners a personalized culinary experience and our bookings speak for themselves: We are fully booked 3 months in advance!
“We tapped the TripAdvisor community to help us serve up the top fine-dining restaurants around the globe because an exceptional dining experience can be the highlight of a trip or a special occasion,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “These elite dining establishments have earned the highest praise from travellers for their remarkable cuisine and commitment to service.”
