Second time. Enjoyed as much as the first time
Enjoyed the show Second time was just as great as the first time
Small crowd....excellent entertainment. Gives a personal touch to Old Blue Eyes
The show was excellent as well as the Dinner
This was a great dinner show. The entertainer was very friendly and the food was very good!
A great evening of music and food was had by all. We highly recommend this event and will be attending every year!
What a treat. We were so glad we found this notice and had the opportunity to enjoy the singing and the always great food. I always have their delicious Keshi Yena and my husband and son had the stewed goat.
We will definitely make this a repeat experience next year.

One man show. Did his best to entertain a very quiet and unemotional audience. A tough gig.
The show was good, food came out timely and was tasty. The room was a little cold though. Overall, good.

Fred Frank had a very nice voice and sang well. We enjoyed the variety of artists he chose. To help you decide if you'd like to go, here's a summary of our experience:
We arrived about 25 minutes early, by cab. The restaurant has an outdoor and an indoor area, and one must enter the indoor area from the outdoor patio, but it's not labeled and does not look like that, as there are several swinging doors that look like they go to kitchens. So, when we arrived, we approached the bar outside the only place we saw staff and were ignored for several minutes though it was not crowded. I spoke up and was told to wait. A bit later, I was approached, and then shown inside. My husband and I were placed at a very small table right against the doorway of the inside restaurant room, and asked to move. We were moved to the other side of the room.
Fred was present and chatted with us briefly as he moved around the room greeting guests.
The room itself was not impressive--it shows its age and looks like it could use a good cleaning. It was also rather small--much smaller than any other restaurant I've ever been in!
Service was abysmal. Only after asking were we given any bread which perhaps they'd run out of, as we got one piece of bread and two pieces of a cut pancake. Like, actual, American-style pancake. Odd, but that's okay, it tasted fine! We had to ask REPEATEDLY for water, which was tough, because service was so very slow and inattentive.
Fred sang a handful of songs, stopping to introduce each song to us, and to tell us a little bit about the singer/composer and the year the song was made. He has a very nice voice, though he definitely sang in his own style, with his own pitch and tempo, and did not try to mimic the original singers. Words that may be drawn out by the original singer, once, he may have sang 2-3 times, quickly, for instance.
He took a longish break while some food was served before starting again.
The food was okay, but really not very good. My husband asked if he should get the beef or goat stew--the waiter suggested he get the beef because the goat is full of bones. My husband got the beef it was still full of bones.
We did not stay for dessert, but left early, stopping to use the restroom on the way out. The restrooms are not particularly clean, and unlike nicer parts of Aruba, had a strict all paper goes into the wastebasket policy that I've come to expect from, say, the Dominican Republic or being aboard small boats, but certainly am not familiar with in Aruba. Needless to say, they smelled ... not great.
Bottom line: The experience was very, very inexpensive. That made for a nice diversion for the evening, so we don't necessarily regret going. However, we would never do it again, and we'd never recommend this to anyone else.
