Delightful evening from start to finish. Service was excellent, hostess great & our waitress, Weng, was wonderful, so far the best service on the island. Romantic, fabulous fun having your feet in the water, enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Lobster Bisque was yummy with big chunks of lobster. We had the halibut and the catch of...

My family and I ate at Flying Fishbone for the second time last night. We enjoyed the dinner- it was nothing special- but we still enjoyed it. I ordered the shrimp and split it with my sister while my mother and father shared the Mahi Mahi. After about 5 hours of eating we all awoke in the middle of night... More

Tables in the sand. Lights illuminating the surf. Excellent fish and meat dishes, salads, service and desserts. On the pricier side but worth the trip.

As stated by previous reviews, the ambiance is lovely. Especially if you go around 6:30 right when the sun is setting, beautiful for pics and to set the mood. It's a romantic spot! App - crab cakes - AWESOME! I truly enjoyed it. Entree - Fish of the day - Barracuda. This is the first I ever tasted this type... More

Thank you for dining with us and for your detailed review! The barracuda is freshly caught in the waters in front of the Flying Fishbone, it could be that it just wasn`t your taste. We will look into bringing some more light on the beach. Thank you for all your other great feedback. We hope to welcome you once again! More

Wonderful evening even though it was about a half hour from the Marriott. The view/scenery was unbelievably beautiful and worth the drive. Each entree was great and the menu, for those interested, contained options for gluten-free dining. The grilled shrimp was very nice but was totally blown away by the fresh herb risotto served with it. The halibut was wonderful... More

The Flying Fishbone is tastefully decorated. Casual yet romantic. The staff is friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and you can't beat the view. Some of the tables are actually on the shore line so women wearing heels will need to take them off.

This was our fourth visit to this restaurant and the experience has been consistently perfect. Our waitress Weng was very attentive. The food is excellent. We only order local fish or seafood and cannot comment on the meat and chicken dishes. It all looks great though. The restaurant is way outside of Oranjestad but easy to get to by actor... More
