Moby Dick’s Restaurant, Aruba

We enjoyed a very nice meal at Moby Dick’s Restaurant. We joined some good friends, took a table upstairs, and proceeded to feast. Moby Dick’s is located at the Paseo Herencia Mall in the high-rise hotel area near Aruba’s famous Palm Beach.

dicks4Staff here are very friendly and well trained. The decor is nautical as you would expect, complete with these illuminated, etched glass dividers.

dicks3As for the food, well, it is very good. We started with Pomodori Soup (think tomato soup with a little extra garlic). Very tasty and not so much that I didn’t have room for the main course. Moving on, my wife ordered the grouper and can be seen in the next photo.

dicks2I’m not a fish eater so I didn’t taste it but she said it was delicious and cooked perfectly. Speaking of cooked perfectly, I went with a simple NY Strip steak, ordered well-done. It was perfectly well-done, something some restaurants are afraid to do out of fear that it will be over-cooked. Moby Dick’s got it just the way I like it and you can see it here.

dicks1I didn’t photo graph the food our friends ordered. They both said that it was great. We finished up with chocolate ice-cream for dessert, no explanation necessary. I’d like to stress that the service here was very good. Everyone from the hostess to the busboy did a solid job. Moby Dick’s will be on my list of Aruba stops. You might want to give it a try when you’re here on the island.

I’ve eaten out a little too much lately. It’s time to get cooking at home again. Nonetheless, stay tuned for more zany Aruba posts here at The Bent Page.

Bon dia from Aruba.
