    Salina Restaurant - October 2021

    We thought we'd give the new joint a shot as it's right around the corner at Gold Coast in the location formerly occupied by White Modern. It's simpler than WM was but food was delicious and service was almost impeccable - they were a little quick on the draw clearing cocktail glasses and wine bottles but nothing to get bent out of shape over. Everybody enjoyed their meal and it was a reasonable price relative to Aruban dining. Portions are LARGE - one of our diners couldn't finish his ceviche appetizer so... you're warned. And still one of the best views on the island:

    The food:

    The Quesillo was REALLY sweet so... check your cavities. That didn't stop us from Hoovering it down though.

    It was run by two guys (Frank and Francoise - not confusing) who were warm and affable and kept things moving.

    Give it a shot... something a little different from Palm Beach.

    Where is this restaurant? I think we know the chef. I read the reviews and Jesus is the chef - we know him from working on the beach at water sports company near the Marriott. Then had his own luncheonette in one of the malls with his wife. Then last we saw him he was working the segways. Someone told my husband on our recent trip he is working at Salina. Small world! I wish him well!

    Great food and all around great experience at Salina.
    Beautiful sunset, sitting out by beautiful pool area, with drinks and great food without breaking the bank is a Good Thing
    They are the new restaurant in Gold Coast so check it out.
