We had a wonderful meal, in a truly beautiful setting, with an extremely friendlily and attentive staff. This is a must do if you are traveling to Aruba. Though the restaurant is a little off the beaten path, the 30 minute journey (from the High Rise section) is definitely worth the trip. Of all the restaurants we ate in, this... More

My only complaint was the fish selection, or the lack of it. One of the reasons we LOVE the Flying Fishbone is their local fish selections. This year they only had two, Unicorn fish, and tilapia. None of these were local. My wife did order the unicorn fish, and it was good. Please put the local fish back on the... More

We have been coming to Aruba for over 20 years. We like getting here right before sun sets. Romantic dining, feet in sand, you are seated at water's edge. What more could you ask for plus excellent food and service. Our waitress Alethia was attentive, and fish of the day was Bonga Mary, which is a local fish I had... More

Everything about this restaurant is great. Tables are at the waters edge which you can enjoy with barefoot elegance. Also the sunsets are breathtaking. Food is good as well as the service. This is great for couples celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary. It is highly recommended!!

Dining ar waters edge with the waves lapping at your feet ad flying fish jumping right in front of you was pretty cool. Food was really good but very expensive and it is a far ride from the Ritz where we were saying. Fun to do once.

Have to agree with all the rave reviews. Got there about 5:30 and were seated at a table in the sand a few feet from the water, and invited to take our shoes off, which we did. Enjoyed excellent drinks and wonderful appetizers ( the tuna and the tempura shrimp) while watching the sun go down, and local fishermen next... More

If you get a closer seat by the water, you can actually enjoy a great meal while your toes stay cool in the ocean water. I really enjoyed this restaurant. I actually tried mahi mahi here for the first time in my life and enjoyed it so much. A must go restaurant when in Aruba.

This was the first restaurant we visited on our first trip to Aruba. Everything was truly outstanding, the food, the service, the view and the ambiance. I had the halibut, my husband had the marinated tenderloin skewer, he said it was awesome!! And then we saw the flying fish! We were told that the yellow snapper were 'hunting' for food,... More

While this review is late, it's not without the same feelings. November was our 2nd trip to Aruba in 2014. We first ate at the Flying Fishbone in July, and then again in November...and we are counting the days down to our next trip to Aruba!! I have to say everything, from the moment we walked in, until the moment... More

Just returned from Flying Fishbone. Absolutely loved everything. Right on the beach (you can take your shoes off at your table- they give you a rack to hang them from). Michael our server was the perfect balance between completely laid back island vibe and great service provider. Food was amazing. One of the best memories of my 50th birthday trip.
