We reserved our table as soon as they opened because we wanted a great view of the sunset. It did not disappoint. The seafood was so fresh and amazing. This was the best meal all week.

A very special place to have dinner. I was here on my own, but that was no problem at all, because the place and the view was so special I did not miss a partner at my table. The food was fine, but not exquisite; the price quite reasonable. Absolutely a place to go to!

Lovely restaurant on a deck over the bay. Fish were jumping right next to our table! Very friendly staff made us comfortable. My husband had the Caribbean fish soup which was absolutely delicious. I had duck breast for dinner which was cooked to perfection. Cappucino for dessert was wonderful! One of the best places to eat in Aruba.

This restaurant is quite off the beaten path, and costs quite a bit for the cab fare. If you are looking for a quiet dining experience, with a great view of the sunset, and a delicious meal - then it is 100% worth the price!!

Dine around sunset for spectacular views! This is truly a very romantic, beautiful setting. I'm sorry to say our service could have been better, but our server was distracted by another table that had complaints. This had a negative impact on our dining experience here. Food was very good, nicely presented, but a bit overpriced.

Book a table at sunset. The food is creative, the staff friendly, and the flavors are as varied as the colors in the sunset sky.

Marandi is located near the airport, on a pier, overlooking a beautiful bay and the perfect spot for a romantic sunset dinner. Driving to this location, there are a few signs but it is tricky driving through a residential neighborhood. There is ample parking and there are stairs that take you down into the beautiful, large palapa hut over the... More

Don't get me wrong, the food was amazing, but the service was absolutely terrible. I'm usually not a picky customer, but we had to wait over a hour to get our food. What bother me the most was when I politely asked about our meal, since other customers who came in and order at the SAME exact time we did... More

Food and wine still excellent. Service was so prompt and courteous. We are glad to visit here every year. Loved the watermelon and goat cheese appetizer. Terrific presentation on the mahi mahi and the grouper. Prices were reasonable and the view soothing. Would go again if it is still hee next year.
