Prior to going to the Flying Fishbone, we had an underwhelming dinner at another restaurant on the beach. We were apprehensive about another beach dinner. We were happy that we tried another place! By far this was an incredible meal and experience and was out best meal during the 10 days in Aruba. The setting on the beach was just... More

We enjoyed a sunset dinner at the Flying Fishbone 9/9/14. The food was delicious, the sunset was beautiful and the atmosphere amazing. Michael was our server, he was the best. We took pictures and were not rushed at all. Definitely a restaurant to go to on a return trip to Aruba.

We had read a lot of good reviews for Flying Fishbone and even had some personal recommendations to try it. But I have to say that I was pretty underwhelmed by the food. The service was excellent and the view and ambiance was great (except some bugs but they had many bottles of bug spray to use before you go... More

We are staying up at the Marriott Property on our honeymoon and took the cab ride down to Flying Fishbone. The sunset and atmosphere were spectacular. The food was delicious as well. Highly recommend as a must do when visiting Aruba.

The setting and food here are so wonderful you even forget about the $30 each way cab fare. It is a beautiful setting. Go during sunset.. It is very romantic! After the sunsets the water turns a deep blue which is also beautiful. We enjoyed seeing all different fish jumping and swimming in front of us. The sangria was one... More

From the parking lot in front, you will have no idea what beauty awaits once you enter this great restaurant. A hint of the gorgeous surroundings will be provided as you walk towards the restaurant down a tropical pathway that leads to the hostess stand. From there your senses will be delighted with tables lining the shore with done even... More

This by far is one of the best restaurants in Aruba. You can eat your dinner at a table in the water and make sure you make your reservation for when the sun goes down. You sit in the water and watch the sun go down as you sip a nice glass of wine. The food is superior and one... More

Went last week on our honeymoon for dinner to The Flying Fishbone, it was recommended by 2 family/friends and it was well worth the drive/$! The atmosphere alone was amazing, such a relaxed, beautiful restaurant on the beach. And the food was sooooo good!
