This restaurant has closed. It is now Arubaville! Nothing more to say. I miss Marndi, but Arubaville is a fun replacement. Give Arubaville a try when you are in Aruba. Enjoy!!

Elegant, yet modern, relaxed setting & artistic cuisine. Awesome friendly staff, high service quality. I must say this place might have the best Aruba's Sunset view. So make your reservation at or just prior to sunset if you appreciate the sunset. It also makes for a very romantic evening as well. Keep up the stellar service.

When we went it was not busy at all but they do recommend reservations. The food was great and the atmosphere is wonderful. You eat on a dock over the water with lighting that creates a beautiful ambiance. Perfect for date night!

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
