It was close to where we stayed and the fish was fresh and the wait staff was great. Nice cold beer. I wished the beer was more than 8 ozs.

Not only do you sit in the ocean while you eat! The food is great and the service makes it even better! My husband and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary here what an amazing place. Like no other, if you are in Aruba and want a romantic night you have to stop by this place it is the best... More

Eating a fabulous dinner while your feet are in the water and you can look out into the ocean and watch the fish play? Yes, please. This is a unique and lovely experience - the waitstaff was accommodating, the food was delicious (potato and roasted garlic soup, Peruvian ceviche, and surf and turf) and perfectly cooked. The setting cannot be... More

We went to The Flying Fishbone on our last night on Aruba. And we couldn't have hoped for a better end of our wonderfull vacation. The service was excellent, the food was amazing and the setting was perfect! You have to make reservations in advance because we showed up the evening before and it was fully booked so we booked...

My family and I visited this place on Thursday night at 6pm. Whenever we approached the front desk the waitress was talking to her coworker. She was explaining something to her. She didn't look at us for 1 minute even though we were standing in front of her. The food is ok, the view is great. Not a single waitress... More

Where do I even start? Tables in the water, fresh seafood, delicious steaks...it's all incredible. Book a table for sunset and enjoy the most romantic views you'll ever experience. Flying Fishbone is always a must-do every time I'm in Aruba. Add it to your list!!!

This was so much fun! I was super bummed because it took much longer to get there then I expected from Eagle beach. Leave at least a half hour to 45 minutes before your reservation. It's on the southernmost tip of the island. As our reservations were for 6:30 and we arrived at 6:42, we missed the sunset, which in... More

Dear mirzastifa, Thank you for your posting. We are located about 25 minutes from the hotels, if traffic is not too busy downtown. Glad you found us! The delay in service and the under cooking of your duck has been discussed internally, thank you for your understanding! Happy anniversary! More

First, likely for most tourists, this is a bit out of the way but I assure you it is absolutely worth the time, effort and money to get there. The food was unique and delicious, the service (we had Ranata) was above and beyond as every guest was made to feel special but the atmosphere was ridiculously awesome. We were... More
