Furthermore, a traditional Rotisserie was installed, with fresh roasted chicken, complementing the dining experience; and on different nights, other roasted meats and fish, are also prepared in the Rotisserie.
A brand new carving station now offers a daily special, with an every changing variety of main courses, a large salad bar, just-rolled sushi, a selection of the finest imported cheeses and a desert bar with beautiful pastries, cookies, ice-cream and fresh fruit.
The new decoration scheme is modern in muted grey, beige, and soft blue tones. A selection of glass fish hangs from the ceiling and in the hallway renowned muralist, Dutch artist Leon Keer, who participated earlier this year in the Aruba Art Fair, created a terrific 3D painting depicting a turtle in a clear aquarium, set on the beach with the horizon on the same line, as the actual, real life horizon.
Locals and visitors are invited to try the restaurant; you can buy a ticket at the front desk and enjoy the full buffet including a beverage.
