One of the best meals we have ever enjoyed! Out of the way from Palm Beach and the high rise hotels, you should make every effort to get to this restauarant. It does not compare to anything in the hotel district. Local seafood was excellent, and the on-the-sand dining experience at the edge of the lagoon was perfect - an... More

There is nothing like this experience. We & our children (one teen, one college-age) were completely wowed by our evening at the Flying Fishbone. Our waiter was amazing. The food mouth-watering. The drinks, refreshing. The sunset, water-side setting, ambiance...all enchanting! They brought a "tree" on which to hang our shoes, sandals, and purses. They took photos. They dazzled us with...

Yes it's pretty far away from the main tourist hotels, a good 35-45minute drive from Palm Beach but who cares? We're on vacation! The beach ambience, your feet in the sand, and if you make early reservations (530-6pm) you'll get the ocean table literally at your feet. First the sunset view while having a cocktail (I had their "Flying Fishbone"... More

We have been in Aruba for one week. Most of the restaurant's we have eaten at have been okay, but not spectacular. The food at the Flying Fishbone was spectacular. My wife had the Seafood Pasta and I had the Seafood History. Both dishes were outstanding, with very generous portions. My wife ended up bring most of her food back... More

We had a nice dinner here during our visit. The restaurant is far away but we had a car. If you don't have a car, you may want to go somewhere closer. We both had the swordfish and I just didn't like it. It wasn't the chef's fault though - it appeared to be well cooked and presented. I just... More

This is our second time at Flying Fishbone and both times were for our anniversary. We lucked out both times and got the best table on the beach. The service was awesome , the food was delicious and the ambience was perfect. We highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We were very excited to visit the Flying Fishbone based on the online reviews and a recommendation from friends. Unfortunately it was one of those experiences that went from bad to worse. We were greeted by a hostess who asked us to sit at the bar while we waited for our table. We happily sat down (for 10+ mins) and... More

we made a 5pm reservation so we could get a table with our feet in the water, which made for a very memorable dining experience. the food was above average but i think the atmosphere of dining at sunset on the beach was what we will remember most about the evening. we were staying at the marriott stellaris so this...
