Anyone have a favorite restaurant(s) that have opened in the last year or so? Like to try a new restaurant every year.
Thanks!

There was also a new restaurant in the new strip mall by the Holiday Inn, called La Braise. We did not eat here, it was a large restaurant with a bar. They are opened about 2/3 weeks now. We were in Aruba for about two weeks, and I did not see much activity at this restaurant, and we were staying at the Holiday Inn. Here is their website, http://rotisserielabraise.com/.

We loved Wilhelmina! Ask to sit in the courtyard. A first class meal.

Also had a great meal at Senses. I think it may be our favorite of the 3 gourmet meal restaurants we have tried.

We had previously not been to Quinta Del Carmen. In our 3 weeks on the island, this was our best meal. Beautiful courtyard setting, too.

La Braise had maybe 10 people in it every time we went by it. Last night it looked like it was closed.

Great meals in Aruba!

We were just at the high rise last night during prime time dining and La Braise was not open. There was a security guard, but no people inside. The place looks nice and it looks completed.
