“Simply Stunning with Thoughtful, Attentive Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband and I made sunset reservations for our 1-year anniversary - we were married on the beach next to Simply Fish last year. (Always make reservations for the best seating.) Juan and Maria were our team of servers, and they went above-and-beyond... From offering to take photos of us and the sunset (with his own phone no-less, as mine was malfunctioning), to phenomenal service, impeccable knowledge of the dishes and excellent recommendations and everything in-between, we were impressed. Juan even surprised us at dessert with a darling Aruba frame for our favorite sunset photo. Simply Fish has our heart, and we're looking forward to dining with them again, very soon.

“Nice place to have a drink & lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Enjoy the view and nice lunch, not too pricey. Service was generally good to very good. We'd recommend - dinner on the beach is romantic, but book ahead.

“Enjoy the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Dined at Simply Fish while staying at The Marriott. The waiter told us the fish is mostly brought in from Costa Rica due to contamination in Aruba's waters. Have yet to do any research on this but the offerings were definitely not local. The lobster tail was very good. My husband enjoyed the mussels and the cobia. Dessert was my favorite part of the meal. We lingered enjoying the view down the beach and were never rushed. The service was attentive and friendly. Especially Juan who assisted our waiter. The total experience was enjoyable.

“No shoes required”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This is a great setting to eat and enjoy your surroundings. We ate on the beach 5 steps (yes I counted) from the ocean. We went after dark and just enjoyed the ocean breezes and light from the tiki torches.
The menu is pretty simple. If you go, you would probably want to get a local fish like Wahoo or Grouper. Wahoo is more of a meatier fish and Grouper is a flaky white fish. We tried both and liked the Grouper best.

“Fish N Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The timing of your reservation is what makes this the experience. Recommended we reserve for 7pm. Perfect timing to see the sunset right on the beach. Flip flops recommended. Good service, simple menu of fresh catches of the day, few salads, sides, and apps. We ordered the grouper and another catch..both with lightly prepared seasonings and sauces. The fried calamari was overcooked and rubbery. Nice wine and cocktail selections as well.. But in the end this place is worthy a visit for the fish and sunset.
