Restaurant Windows on Aruba is more than just a place to dine in elegance, with top-shelf service and in culinary delight. Starring top chef Darwin Torres, the man behind the steering wheel in the kitchen, the fine dining establishment of Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort seeks to be out-of-the-box with extraordinary events to make sure they are always one step ahead. Let’s see what has been conquered yet, and what is on the way to make you surrender.
A Yeah year
In June 2019, Aruba was put on the epicurean map with the largest Michelin pop-up restaurant in the Caribbean. Chefs Jermain de Rozario, Juliën van Loo, François Geurds and Edwin Vinke presented food from heaven like shining stars, literally their stars of the Michelin Guide. Together, this quartet makes up for eight (!) Michelin stars offering a truly culinary indulgence in a unique setting, and a blow-me-away five course dinner. The event was sold out in a blink of the eye, leaving a list of requested reservations behind, who need to try their luck next time. Seats were limited and went like hot cakes. No time to stress though as Windows is planning to give you, yet another star-studded night in the coming year.
Italy is all about food, music, drama and expression. Amuse, anti-pasta, pasta and a grande dessert were the ingredients for the culinary part of the event beginning this year. Added to that excellent base is the team of Pasta e Basta Amsterdam, a concept where former students from the Dutch conservatorium serve and sing during this culinary voyage through Italy. “We love to surprise our guests with other than ordinary experiences, also to our local guests it is important to bring in some variation,” said F&B Manager Marrit Fleur.
Brunch will never be the same after Windows on Aruba. TripAdvisor is overflowing with recommendations for this bang, locals have known this for ages. Endless mimosas and unlimited tapas-style dishes will make you go wild. We are not referring to standard lunch items, let’s see there’s, Thai Coconut Curry Mussels, Classic Escargots, Lobster Ravioli are only some of the optional appetizers. Linguini Frutti di Mare, Grilled Veal Loin and Argentinian Tenderloin stand out in a strong series of Entrees, while you can top it off with some lush desserts. If you prefer to boost your brunch there are salads, soups and eggs on the menu. No doubt, this is extravaganza. Reserve some time, you will definitely need it.
Windows continues dropping surprises in your lap. Throughout the year, crème-de-la-crème chefs like Jermain de Rozario drop in to tantalize your tastebuds. The restaurant excels in elegance and romance flows in with candle lights, comfortable sofa chairs and white linen.
Best strategy to make sure to be part of the magic is to stay tuned, follow their steps and reserve in time. A normal vacation dinner is out of the question, even when it is daily business Chef Torres brings his creativity to each dish and presentation, while you stare outside of the Window thinking: this is the view I need.
