Dinner on the beach with music and great atmosphere! Service was excellent (by Simone) Had the creamy corn soup, Mahi Mahi special and the brownie/ice cream dessert all plates returned completely empty. Scallops florentine was another big hit a our table as was the Duck. For dessert the Baked Alaska was the highlight. Although this is a "long" ride for... More

Arrived early for dinner and seated near water's edge with unobstructed view of sunset. Weng and Isma took good care of us from drinks to dessert. All the reviews about the food, service and atmosphere are right on. Another must stop in Aruba. Well worth the 1/2 hour drive from the high-rise hotel area. Easy to find with smartphone &... More

what a beautiful place! right on the water, with blue lighting illuminating the water. Absolutely stunning and very romantic. The food, drinks and service were top notch! a little bit of a drive but well worth it.

My husband and I came to Aruba for our first time in August and had to visit the Flying Fishbone because many friends and family recommended. And the restaurant did not disappoint. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and our server, Renate was just fantastic. The beach setting is romantic and we even got to see a spectacular sunset.... More

What an amazing spot!!!!!! The views here are phenomenal. Your table is set on the beach. As you wiggle your toes in the sand, your high heels are safely perched on a shoe stand. The service is impeccable. Sometimes when you have a great view, the food disappoints, but this is not the case here. The fish is so fresh... More

This place was incredible. From the food and drink right down to the view. Relaxing and comfortable. Friendly service. Excellent food. You can enjoy wiggling your toes in the sand while you sip at your glass of wine and eat some great food.

Great food and service. The restaurant is unique as it is on a small beach. You can dine and have your feet in the sand or water if you prefer.

This is the most beautiful restaurant in Aruba and should not be missed. The sunset view is spectacular and the fish literally can be seen jumping out of the beautifully illuminated water at night. Some tables at the waters edge allow you to dine with the water covering your feet. Unfortunately however, the food doesn't always rise to the level... More

Tables are on the beach, so you dine with toes in the sand (or water). Get an early reservation around 6/6:30 to catch the sunset. Food is very good but it's the sunsets that make it spectacular.
