Ventanas del Mar Restaurant is preparing to open

DSC07773Famed Ventanas del Mar restaurant closed for renovations for a period of six weeks, is preparing for its much-anticipated opening. The restaurant at Aruba’s Tierra Del Sol, Golf Resort, Country Club & Spa is a great favorite among locals and visitors featuring continental cuisine with a tropical twist, serving delicious meals in an elegant indoor dining room, or on the wraparound terrace overlooking the golf course and the California lighthouse.

This week Jorge Curiel of the Aruba Trading Company conducted a wine tasting with the dining room staff under the leadership of Martin Haselhoef. The servers were introduced to the restaurant’s new house wine, Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, from Central Valley California, and also sample the prestigious Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Merlot and Chardonnay sold by the glass in the dining room.

When the restaurant reopens in the very near future patrons may look forward to a new look as well as novel flavors.

Executive chef Jim Roosman is working on a contemporary Caribbean & French menu to perfectly blend country club dining in a casual yet sophisticated ambiance with breathtaking views of the California lighthouse and dramatic northwest coat.

Food & Beverage Manager Martin Haselhoef will continue to conduct staff food & wine training this week and expects it all to come together for an early November opening.
