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...

for tourist to enjoy the place the need to know what they are getting and for how much; their sign make no sense in how to order the food. The woman taking the order DIDN'T have one bit of a desire to explain it or to smile. So, when she started speaking Spanish to the young man helping I let... More

A little hard to find, but worth the drive. A place where the natives eat. We had a great table right on the dock. Oil lantern for light, good service, outstanding fish, two folks had steak, that was cooked just right. Well worth the drive, would go again. If you have small children, I would not eat on the dock... More

Make a reservation for dinner around 6:30 pm to see the spectacular sunset, languish over some drinks and fantastic food overlooking the water and then watch the fish come out and swim when the lights are turned on after dark. The seafood is extremely fresh and tasty. Make sure to visit this hidden gem
