Menu items are clearly marked. Make sure to tell them you want the item made gluten free. It is not automatically gluten free. They also provided gluten free bread

I was in Aruba last week for a week with some friends - all of which are Celiac and I am also dairy free.We ate at Yemanja one night for dinner! As soon as we sat down the server tried to bring us regular bread and upon us saying we are gluten free, she took it away, only to come back with delicious gluten free bread a few minutes later! It also came with an olive tapenade that was delicious. The menu was labeled well and everything was delicious.

What an amazing experience! Absolutely a perfect night.

Started with freshly baked gluten free bread served with olive tapenade and garlic butter. Next we enjoyed a beautiful, and huge, wedge salad followed by potato truffle soup and French onion soup. We wrapped it up with shrimp creole and grilled seafood medley. For dessert we enjoyed flaming B52s.

Service was fantastic and very attentive. Every course was presented beautifully and the flavors were amazing.

I’m celiac and highly sensitive. Did not get sick at all.

Food is here is very good and they are very accommodating to Gluten free and they even brought gluten free bread to the table. Everything is marked on the menu and the server we had was very knowledgeable. The only reason I wouldn't give it five stars is that service was very slow. It took a really long time for our food to come out. Perhaps that was because they made it separately and carefully, but it took a long time. If you are on island time and don't care, then have a drink and enjoy. But if you are in a time crunch to do other things be aware it could be slow. In terms of gluten free options it is a 5 out of 5. But overall there are other good options with better service.

Everyone has said really great things about this place and now I know why! Food was absolutely amazing (I got the seafood medley), menu was clearly marked what could be made gf, staff was very friendly, they brought me out gluten free bread which was really good and they even double checked to confirm dairy wasn’t an issue before doing so. I would definitely return in the future!!🙂

Oh my gosh this place is amazing!! The menu is clearly labeled with tons of gf option and the food is absolutely delish! This a must have if you are in or visiting Aruba. We will be eating here a lot on our vacation. Just make sure to tell the waiter you are gluten free so they make sure you dish is adjusted accordingly.

This restaurant is amazing. The food and ambiance rival any top NYC dining experience. Both of our kids have Celiac (our daughter is extremely sensitive to any cross-contamination)and they both ate here safely and did not get sick. Our waiter and chef were very knowledgeable and aware of Celiac. The menu was clearly marked as to what could be made GF. Their GF bread was delicious. My son had the filet and mashed potatoes and my daughter had grilled shrimp. They loved it!

LOVED THIS PLACE!!!!! Most delicious food on the entire island in my opinion. They label everything on their menu with a little symbol indicating if it is nut free/gluten free/vegetarian. HOMEMADE GF BREAD! The waitress asked if there were allergies when taking our orders and never rushed with ensuring our order was perfect. Its a perfectly tucked away place as well. No road noise of any sort. Highly recommend a reservation in advance. We would go back in a heart beat

Amazingly delicious! I'm gluten and dairy free and there were a ton of options. I had the Mediterranean quinoa salad as a starter, then the seafood medley with 4 shared sides (only one contained dairy, which I was warned about) and the raw vegan snickers bar for dessert. A dessert that isn't sorbet! They have sorbet too but the snickers bar was the bomb! And I had gluten free bread with olive tapenade. Great wine list and perfect service!

Wonderful meal here. Celiac son tried several items on menu, including scallops ceviche, tenderloin, mashed potatoes, rice and gf bread. Menu items clearly marked. They were well-versed in x-contamination and no reaction after 24 hours.

Celiac aware. Very surprised they had gluten free croutons in Caesar salad. A great option if vacationing in Aruba. My two celiac daughters were very happy as was my non celiac daughter. The food was plentiful and very fresh an tasty. Plan ahead and make reservations prior to your trip.
