Default Our new restaurant guide is here!!

caribmedia has been working very hard for several months to get a restaurant site up and running. we are adding restaurants daily and hope to keep up to date with them. please visit our new site and start rating restaurants. we want honest opinions. you will need to register with your real name but as i just tested it, your first name and last initial will be put up so you can maintain your privacy.

so let's get started posting! your views are extremely important.

Congratulations on your new site! I will make sure Mick knows - he is still upset of why people have been saying that Bingo's has better burgers than the Salt n Pepper. Went to the SnP last night - good burgers!!!

i don't think bingo's has a better burger. i think they are equal but different, lol. if i want a very heavy dutch style burger, bingo is the place to go. if i want a great basic american style burger, salt n pepper is the place.

tell mick to join and do his review. then make a reservation for august for all of us!

Congratulations!!!
The site is very handy and awesome. I didn't know there was a "Pannekoekenhuis" on Aruba.

I just looked quickly at the website.
I checked "Aruban" restaurants.
One we visited last September was the Pam Pam.
I'm not sure which category it would fit, but I would think it should be Aruban.
We tend to try to patronize a number of restaurants that are less popular, reasonably priced, maybe a little bit off the beaten path.
Not everyone's cup of tea, but we enjoyed it.

john, i agree but we go with what the owners request as their description. i would suggest that you do what i did. i went by the alphabetical listing. it made it very easy since many of the restaurants fit into more than one category.

and i agree, i do love to go to the less known places.

That's like Salt and Pepper is under spanish food - I guess because they have "tapas" which are not really "spanish tapas". They should be under "dutch"....

I Love Aruba Re: Our new restaurant guide is here!!

NICE site; compact and easy to use.

Wonder if we could get the restaurants' menus included on their page.

Masha danki,

It's nice to see this list of restaurants with reviews. I will be trying out a new restaurant in January - Caribbean Palm Restaurant - and I will post a review.
