    Oak has been getting good reviews. We haven’t tried it yet. Maybe if you like it, we’ll try it in November. Just love the courtyard dining at Quinta DelCarmen. The atmosphere is so relaxing. Their Nutella cheesecake was fabulous but I wasn’t wowed by the rest of the menu. While I really like Sole Mare this past trip we went to Casa Nonna and enjoyed it more. I would go back there in a heartbeat. Chophouse was another restaurant we will definitely return to.

    I love the pasta in the cheese bowl at Sole Mare. Gianni's does it also.

    Quinta del Carmen is our favorite and we go there every trip. Love the atmosphere and the service and the dutch menu is a nice change from many of the restaurants we visit.

    Cafe Nonna's at the Ritz was a huge hit with our entire group this last trip. Would definitely make that a top choice for Italian (although no pasta in the cheese bowl).

    We've been to the California Lighthouse restaurant and other than the great sunset view, we weren't impressed with the food or service.

    We did Ikes and Quinta del Carmen this years and really liked both and would recommend... Another one we liked and finally tried was Papiamento's.... Setting is a bit tired (just a bit) but the food and service...... were outstanding....

    Quinta del Carmen is a lovely place with great atmosphere. Be sure to ask for table in the garden. I really enjoyed the food as well. Some very unusual options. But Ike's is also great. Had a great grilled snapper there last week. If you want a bit more formal, Chophouse is outstanding.

    I’m very biased when it comes to Italian food and I’m not even Italian...just New Jersian. My pallet won’t let me when in Aruba. Anyway, WILHEMINA is a must. Amazing food, service and wine. I also love Red Fish (very Casual).

    No, Andrea, you're not alone on that one! Watching them at Gianni's kind of freaked me out. LOL!
