Last time we ventured down to see the place there were indications that it had closed. Our understanding is that the place can still be rented for private affairs - we would not recommend doing so.

The food is so good. The restaurant is tucked away on a cool street that speaks Aruba. It is quaint and quiet with nice menu selections. The servers are attentive and very friendly.

Very close to Flying Fishbone, but totally different. Very peaceful, beautiful views, delicious food and great service. Our table was 10 feet from the water...we took our shoes off and walked in between courses. Lovely!
