Elements Hailed as Top 10 Restaurant in the Caribbean by TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor just announced the recipients of its annual Travelers’ Choice Awards for Restaurants, with Elements restaurant at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort being named a winner. Aruba’s sole awardee is honored to be among the Top 10 Best Fine Dining Restaurants in the Caribbean.

This year, the awards recognize 584 total restaurants globally. These restaurants were consistently given high ratings and praise by diners worldwide via TripAdvisor for the whole year. TripAdvisor houses more than 795 million reviews and opinions of 8.4 million accommodations, restaurants, experiences, airlines, and cruises. The Travelers’ Choice Award is the highest honor TripAdvisor bestows. It is only awarded to the best of the best, based on service, quality, and customer satisfaction.

“Diners rely on candid reviews and guidance from other TripAdvisor users to discover restaurants of all types, from local hidden gems to famous restaurants all over the world,” said Bertrand Jelensperger, senior vice president for TripAdvisor Restaurants.

Poised on the white sands of famed Eagle Beach, Elements restaurant is renowned for its elegant dining environment with a “view to dine for.” Director of Food & Beverage and Chef Marc Giesbers presents an international menu inspired by quality meats, fresh seafood, locally grown vegetables, and foraged flavors from around the world.

Wines from the finest vineyards and celebratory champagne rank among the highlights of the restaurant’s award-winning offerings. As an extension of Bucuti & Tara’s commitment to wellness, Elements offers a menu encompassing Aruba’s local ingredients, including lionfish ceviche, as well as farm-to-table greens and vegetables. Its creative, popular vegan and vegetarian menu has also received critical acclaim, and gluten-free options are freshly created and sourced.
