a hidden Gem

A hidden gem on Aruba. Been coming here for ten years. Ambiance on the beach and service are one of the best in Aruba. The food is prepared well. My family and I have tried most of the menu and can truly say order what you like its all great. leave room for dessert s they are wonderful.

Almost everyone recommended this place, so expectations were high, the environment is unique and delivers, on the night the food I ordered was a bit bland for a curry lover, maybe I ordered the wrong dish, will go back if the opportunity comes along just to order something different.

While on Aruba do yourself a favor and make the drive to The Flying Fishbone. We were staying on Palm Beach and it was a 30-40 minute drive( we had a car) but it is worth the trip! Situated on a beautiful sandy beach with lovely atmospheric lighting, The Flying Fishbone gets top marks for the service, the setting and... More

It was our 25th anniversary....... After being seated in a location where we couldn't even see the sunset(no other tables available). It took nearly 20 minutes before we final got the managers attention so we could order drinks and an appetizer. Our waiter was too busy flirting with a group of girls at one of the other tables. Service was... More

My husband and I were referred to this place by one of his coworkers. We were in Aruba on our honeymoon and we had heard from several people that we had to try it! We stayed in the high rises in Palm Beach, so it was a little far away.. But we rented a car for the day that was... More

I wrote a not particularly favorable review in December after having eaten Christmas Eve dinner at the restaurant. Since I stay very near this restaurant, I returned to see what the experience would be this time. I went around 8 p.m. (after sunset, when most people try to be there) without a reservation and was seated promptly at a table... More

Had the closest table to the water and we were calf deep all night. I loved it and after a glass of wine my wife did too. Great atmosphere, excellent staff. Our waitress Alethia took great photos of us and was very friendly and helpful. We went for the experience but left raving about the food. The appetizers could be... More

Very special and romantic setting food and staff where very good. We are sure, we come back again. The setting on the beach and with you're feeds in the water is quid a experience. Specially with the little crabs walking around you.

The outside of the restaurant doesn't look like much but then you walk into the entrance and you see the lit tigers and the beautifully lit walk way and make your way past the reservation desk to the outside and the landscape and lighting is breath taking! The wait staff is very good. The recent was very accommodating. My father... More

With so many fine dining restaurants in Aruba, we normally don't eat at the same place twice...except this time! Everything about the Flying Fishbone is wonderfully romantic. The entrance walkway is well appointed, the tables are spaced beautifully (some in the water), the service staff is knowledgable, relaxed and very friendly....and the food is...EXCELLENT! The first night I had the... More
