Beautiful Sunset Excellent Food

A very good meal with nicely prepared wahoo that we both had, but prepared differently (my wife had L'orange and I had creole style). The environment was great, super sunset on a pier overlooking the water.

A friend told us about Marina Pirata and happy we went. She gave us the heads up that the restaurant is not near anything else, so I was less worried as the taxi took us further from the downtown area. We had great seats right at the edge of the dock--great location to see the fish and experience the darkness... More

The cheese was old, the fish was old, the restaurant is old, the table is old, the old man was grumpy. Its all cheesy. Basically you get a piece of fish on a plate, a slice of cheese over it. Hunt's tomato paste on top, with a measly piece of carrot and banana on the side, and there you have... More

Note this is not a foodies restaurant, so don't expect a lot of innovation in its dishes. This restaurant is to eat fresh fish and seafood while enjoying incomparable scenery. We were sitting in the dock right by the water and we could see the fish swimming while dining. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We had Barracuda, Grouper,... More

Awesome atmosphere to dine at if you can find it.....make sure you go at or after sunset....the restaurant sits on the water and at night the lights attract huge fish for viewing pleasure. I have seen giant tarpon swimming up and down the mangrove lined river. The sunset is also phenomenal....the food was ok not bad not outstanding but I... More

We went to eat there on our first night in Aruba. The deck is right on the water and you can see the fishes. The view from the deck is lovely. We tried the fish l'orange. The fish and sauce were great but the sides were okay. The service was nice. The waiter and other staff checked on us regularly.... More

Here is a restaurant where the fish is so fresh we observed a large Maui Maui being carved up for dinner portions as we entered the front of the restaurants. Dinner was delicious and sunset gorgeous overlooking the Marina and channel.

It is off the beaten path. This restaurant feels like you are going to a sketchy part of town but it is worth the trip. It is close to the water desalination plant. The food was fantastic (small portions) but tasted great. It is set on a dock with lights all around it and you can see the fish swimming... More
