We had to return to the Flying Fishbone since we haven't been to Aruba in nearly eight years, and it was our favorite restaurant from that last trip. After checking out the reviews and seeing that it is still one of the top rated, we visited on a Saturday night. The drinks we started with were delicious (blue martini for... More

We ate as a family at the Flying Fishbone. For my wife and I, it was our wedding anniversary. We ate here 15 years ago on our honeymoon and...well I think it has become even better. This time, though, we brought our grandson, his 30ish mother and our 23 year old son-we are a blended family. All of us enjoyed... More

Absolutely unbelievable! Ambiance is amazing right on the water with tables that actually are in the water. You can hang your shoes up and sit ankle deep in the ocean while you eat. It is amazing! The food was some of the best we had on the island and fresh. We had red snapper! Order their Sangria it is amazing!... More

We may have just gone on a wrong night but there was no breeze and sitting in or by the water we were getting bitten. Even with the bug spray provided no luck. As far as the food went, we have had better. No one liked it. Couldn't get out of there fast enough.

This was my second visit in the past 4 years and the experience is one I won't forget. The atmosphere is fantastic and the staff and owner are great. We enjoyed the romantic dining in the water.

Food was good, but atmosphere was awesome. I recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner - get there in time for sunset & stay until after dark.

The atmosphere here is just incredible! The food was very good as well. The service is a bit on the slower side but you're on island time! They have little The only downside is that we had a reservation for 7pm to watch the sunset around 7:20pm and everyone who had the earlier reservation would not leave until the sun... More

The Food was incredible, The service was even better. Mike took care of our table. He was very personable and accommodating to all of our needs. The Rack of Lamb was the best lamb I have ever eaten in my entire life. One of the best dining experiences I have ever had!
