The food is so good. The restaurant is tucked away on a cool street that speaks Aruba. It is quaint and quiet with nice menu selections. The servers are attentive and very friendly.

Very close to Flying Fishbone, but totally different. Very peaceful, beautiful views, delicious food and great service. Our table was 10 feet from the water...we took our shoes off and walked in between courses. Lovely!

As travel agents, we always like to scout out new places to review and Old Man and the Sea offered great romantic ambience for a romantic evening as well as "free transportation" and a discount for travel agents. We booked a beautiful cabana and confirmed with both the driver and the restaurant. Halfway to the restaurant the driver told us... More

This place is an Aruban staple. The food is adequately prepared and the Grouper and Wahoo is always fresh with a few alternative preparations. The atmosphere is island eclectic and the staff always pleasant. This is not a high end restaurant but it fits the bill for a moderately priced Aruba experience.
