    I guess they are doing pretty good. Went there a few times. The food and service are amazing.

    We wanted to go there this trip but for some reason we never made it. We have heard great reviews from folks on the island.

    I had the pleasure of dining there once. I spotted Ricardo right away. Nice guy and the food, drinks, service were excellent.

    Unfortunately we didn’t have same experience. We so wanted to love it since we’ve known Ricardo since Rumba downtown. Love him. We sat outside almost in parking lot but we knew that. No lighting at that table at all. We could not see our food. We ordered the steak they are know for and it was not tender. I’m glad they are doing well and that most have good experiences.

    we loved Rumbas downtown!
    we have never been to Oak.

    I believe that there is a new baby in Ricardo's family.

    We love Oak and will get there during our first week in Aruba this year before they close for vacation. Ricardo is a great host and knows how to run a restaurant. One of the hardest working guys in Aruba.

    I just made our reservation for Oak on Thursday, September 1st. We were there in August of 2019, have missed our past 2 years on island, and this is the 1st dinner reservation we made. Our entire group tagged Oak as one of our must dos.
