We dined at Marina Pirata last night, on the recommendation of friends in Aruba, who listed it as the "best Aruban restaurant" on the island. Can't be true! It's located at a US$25.00 taxi ride from the heart of Oranjestad, to start with, twice that from the High Rise Hotel section. The appetizers, all in the US$9 to $14 range... More

Wow. This was one of the worst restaurant experiences of the year. First, they were out of a lot of the items for drinks. it took TWO HOURS for the food to arrive. During which time, they never even asked if we wanted a second round of drinks (we did). When the food arrived, it was not even mediocre. The... More

Heard about this from a taxi driver. The fish are swimming, literally, three feet from your table. Incredibly quiet and peaceful (it's a good 25 mins from Palm-Eagle Beach area). The food was fantastic - I had the Grouper A L'Orange. Very reasonably priced as well.

After a day of waking up at 3am and flying roughly 6 hours I looked about as rough as the outside of the restaurant and smelled a touch better than the smell when you first walk in. This restaurant is very deceiving and we would've regretted not eating here. The staff was very friendly. The food was pretty good and... More

Excellent place to have dinner, right over the ocean. You can feed the fish and they'll come right up next to the dinner deck. Bring a little extra oyster crackers to attract them. Food is great and good service too. Price is great for families.

We have been coming to Aruba for the last 23 years and we try new restaurants each time on the island, but we ALWAYS make sure to go to Marina Pirata every time. By far our favorite for food, ambiance and service. Fresh seafood prepared deliciously - super yummy drinks - friendly service - sitting out on the water with... More

While in Aruba we met an American woman who has lived in Aruba for years. She invited us to have dinner with her and to and picked us up at our hotel ( The Holiday Inn). A little bit of a ride but well worth it. We would never have found this place on our own. After parking you walk... More

Lovely setting down on the water. Great food. I had the seafood platter - incredibly generous serving, all cooked to perfection. Reserve so you can get right on the edge for an unobstructed sunset view. Water is lit at dinner, so you can watch all the fish coming in, hoping you will share some of your food with them. Insect...
