Good food and Great Atmosphere

Been here twice. The food has been real good and eating on the beach is great. Try to reserve a table before sunset it's worth seeing.

the flying fishbone is one of my favorite spots in Aruba, there is no where else i know of where you can have dinner in the water, i wasn't overly impressed by the food but i didn't mind because the atmosphere was incredible. i highly recommend getting there right before the sun sets so you can enjoy the sun setting...

its perhaps one of the best places to have coffee with seriously good views an extemely romantic setting, what disappoints is the food, nothing to write home about.

Everything about the Flying Fish Bone was wonderful--the staff, the food, the drinks, the atmosphere. It was our best meal in Aruba. We went with a party of 11 and the service was great. Our table sat right on the sand next to the ocean. It was simply beautiful.

This is a lovely albeit pricey restaurant that is right on the beach and in the water. Some of the tables are placed in the water. But don't worry as the waves are inches (centimeters) high, with water temperatures in the low 80˚F (27˚C), so the effect is magical. It is a fair distance from the big resorts and is... More

A bit of a drive south of town but well worth it. The eclectic mix of some folks sitting in the water while others are on the beach in the sand creates a great atmosphere. All of the food was really excellent. Our server, Renata, was very helpful and friendly. While a similar theme to other

We reserved for the 5:00 dinner to guarantee our feet would be in the water. It started with little crabs making their appearance around the rocks surrounding our table area. They stayed put and it was fun to watch them. Then a few tiny black fish swam around under our table. I assume looking for fallen bread crumbs. That was... More
