We had gone to this place the year it first opened. I recall that we liked the food, but thought the service was overbearing - felt like our every move was being watched by an over attentive wait staff - similar to what we had experienced at Le Dome on our first visit to Aruba in 2005. Thought we'd give it another try this trip since we heard many positive things from friends at CLBR. DW had a Margerita and I had the Maker's Manhattan - drinks were very good. I had the Duo of Tuna (tuna tartare and pepper tuna tataki) for appetizer - thought it was much better than the Two Tuna (tuna tartare & tuna carpaccio) at their sister restaurant Barefoot. For entrees, DW had the Shrimp Pina Colada and I had the Stuffed Chicken (bacon wrapped chicken breast filled with spinach & boursin herb cheese in a creamy garlic sauce). DW has ordered Pina Colada Shrimp / Pineapple Shrimp at several places & thought this was the best version. We shared a bottle of Boen Pinot Noir with dinner. We both enjoyed dinner here & we'll put it on our list for next year.

Food for thought: People object more violently to furs than leather because it is safer to attack rich women than motorcycle gangs.
