My husband and I have been to Aruba several times and this is always one of the restaurants we visit. It is quite a hike from the hotels ($32 each way by taxi) but it is well worth it. The setting here is absolutely stunning. Make sure you make your reservation 30 minutes to an hour before sunset and ask... More

What a disappointment. We asked the desk clerk for a local place, where he would go with friends and this definitely wasn't it. It was about a half hour drive from our hotel and although an attractive place with good food and high prices, it was not for us.

This was recommended by a friend of another friend as a must see and try. We're glad we did. Any time you can relax at dinner, resting your feet in the Caribbean Sea while enjoying a mix of local seafood prepared perfectly, it doesn't get any better than that! It's a bit of a drive from Palm Beach (about 30... More

Ordered fish fillet were given fish steaks cooked on the hard side. Establishment did not charge us for the meals, just for appetizers and drinks. Have been there before with no problems. This time did not have reservation since wanted to go to Derived which is closed Monday's and hear it it rustic but great!

We went per Trip Advisor reviews. The food was quite delicious and the beach seating is very beautiful. However, note that some of the seating is actually in the water, aka you might be submerged up to the mid-calf while seated. Dress accordingly (no ankle jeans) or request sand seating as needed. Otherwise, the food was very delicious and I... More

The Flying Fishbone in Aruba is one of the most incredible restaurants I have ever visited! The setting is absolutely perfect, despite the fact that it is on the other side of the island from the hotels so you would need transportation to reach it. It is so romantic as you sit looking at a perfect Caribbean sunset and enjoying... More

We were so glad another traveler told us about this. Our concierge at the Hyatt made our reservation and we took a taxi. We were so pleased entering the place and removing our sandals to dine on the sandy beach. There are six tables actually in the water if you wish. Beautiful palm trees, white tables and chairs, watching the... More

We had made reservations for my wife's birthday. We had 6:30 reservations and actually got there around 6. We were a party of 6 and one of the couples we were with had been to Aruba many times. They had been here before and let us know that we wouldn't be able to sit in the water. They have two... More

We sat at table 25, arrived 30 minutes before sunset, it was perfect. The corn chowder was perfect, halibut cooked and served to perfection, there was not any room for dessert! Look for coupon for free glass of wine per couple in the local books. The wait staff was very attentive. The cost of taxi is $32.00 from high rise... More
