The trip to baby beach, came with a surprise, while driving we saw the sign for Flying Fishbone restaurant. As many have posted here on this site, it was worth the stop. Michael, our sever made us feel like we were on our honeymoon again. The escargot was great, and both the catch of the day and Unicorn Fish were... More

We celebrated Thanksgiving dinner at a table in the water. I've never experienced anything like this before. It was amazing. The sunset views were stunning. The service and food were also great. Highly recommend!

We had dinner with 3 couples that we met this week. Everyone ordered different and everyone offered to taste. Calamari was the 'bomb'. A favorite appetizer of ours, so fresh, excellent, enjoyed by all. Unicorn fish was the special prepared with care. The sunset was beautiful, setting during our dinner. Definitely a place to dine while in Aruba.

A lot of times the places that have great view do not serve a good food and vice versa . This is not the case . Very unique experience , the service is really great and food is absolutely awesome . We had Escargots de Bourgogne and Lobster Bisque for an appetizer and Savaneta Seafood History for a main course.... More

This is our third time back to the Flying Fishbone....Fourth time to Aruba.and the food and service were as spectacular as always. Our waiter, Hylton was pleasant and met our every need. Since you sit in the water and the sand....we even had an attendant come over with a shovel and straighten my husbands chair. I know that sounds weird....but... More

Hylton was the best! He took care of us, made suggestions and made sure we had the best time! We started with the Shrimp Tempura, loved it. I had the Savaneta Seafood and my husband had the Special (Unicorn Fish) and we both had to take about 1/2 of our plates home. We had our toes in the water at... More

We love this restaurant, we recommended it to 2 couples on our flight down from Charlotte, NC. My only complaint, the corn chowder was a bit salty. The location, the main course, dessert, drinks and staff were fabulous. Same time next year.

Had dinner here with friends last night. First off, FYI, regardless of reservations for the tables in the water, only tables of 2 are seated there. Plenty of empty tables in the water but the 4 of us sat further up. The restaurant suggests you leave 25 minutes prior to your reservation, it took us 1 1/2 hours due to... More

When we arrived in Aruba we asked our taxi driver if she had any recommendations on places to eat. Without hesitation she recommended The Flying Fishbone. She said you can watch the sunset while eating your dinner with your feet in the water. On our last night we decided to give it a try and it did not disappoint. Food... More
