The Flying Fishbone restaurant was out of this world. Top notch food and drinks AND the view is incredible! Some of their tables sit in the water, so if you want one of these tables they are first come first serve so get there around 5:00. Eat slow and enjoy your meal because you don’t want to miss the amazing... More

OMG, as my tribe members would say, if they hadn't brought the food "it would have been enough"! Fishbone, don't try so hard and simple grill the best fish and seafood the Island has to has to offer...Leave the gummy risotto, lackluster and miss-used sauces, duck and halibut to those landlocked restaurants. Appreciate the helpful staff...pick at the food...and stay... More

This restaurant is hard to find on the Aruba roadways, but it is a real gem to visit. You actually eat in the sand so they have a rack at each table for you shoes. They think of everything- providing insect spray, great food, wonderful staff and a great view under the stars. The ocean is lighted so you can... More

This was our favorite dinner in Aruba. My husband, myself and our two 18 year old's loved the place. Atmosphere wonderful, great Miami vibe to the restaurant. Service was great, wonderful food, met with our high expectations in every way. Well worth the extra cab fare!!

Despite a rare cloudy evening with no sunset, enjoyed a romantic meal. What better way to enjoy wonderfully prepared fresh seafood, than at a table on the water's edge, with your feet in the sand & surf. - Only a nice sunset could've make this meal more memorable. - This restaurant is on the southern end of the island, but...

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
