Lovely food! We stayed for 3 weeks next door at The Aruba Reef apartments and we had 3 diners at TFFB. The menu is excellent and we wish we had more time to try them all. Great wine choices! It is quite an experience to have your diner with your legs in the water. Lovely and friendly crew. They even... More

Phenomenal views and fun seating. My daughters loved their pasta, chicken and mushrooms dinners. I had shrimp tempura appetizers, very good. Wife had lobster and shrimp and I had fish special of unicorn fish. Both tasty BUT sooooo salty. Maybe I'm not used to that much salt but I couldn't finish mine nor could my wife. The healthy dessert portions... More

We dined here on our first night on Aruba. We are staying at the Aruba Reef Airbnb right next door so we first chose it for convenience. But the setting, the food, and especially Alethia, the wonderful waitress, made the evening quite special. The unicorn fish special was very good. Fish was sparklingly fresh and well prepared. the drinks were... More

Ever on a trip to Aruba, check out the Flying Fishbone in Savaneta. Food, the views, the service ALL OUTSTANDING! My husband have gone each time we go down to Aruba and it never disappoints. Make sure to make a reservation, put your feet in the sand, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of Aruba!

Our party of 8 visited Flying Fishbone last night for dinner and it exceeded our expectations. The view was of course amazing. Some of the tables are actually in the water! We had a table on the sand which was perfect. The atmosphere was inviting and the entire staff was very friendly. The maitre d stopped by twice to check... More

Enjoyed a wonderful sunset Birthday celebration and everything was wonderfully done. From the Youtube directions for the navigator as it a little off the beaten track to the combination dessert, all 8 of us raved about the overall dining experience. The pictures taken with the beach in the background will certainly make it onto the Christmas card. As the youngest... More

As a vegan there more places to eat in Aruba than one would think. Options are everywhere and any good restaurant should be able to make at least one thing on the menu vegan. While this is the most decidedly non vegan place that I have gone the setting more than makes up for that fact. The tables are situated... More

Great place sunset wine and fresh fish paddle your feet in the sea. A bit off the beaten track looks like a dead end road but what a place you won't find a better fish restaurant on the island need to make a booking if you are there @ 1900 a great place for a sunset .

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Aruba and we used to go every year at least once, but now we will not go back unless some changes are made such as reducing the ridiculous drink prices and deceptive practices used to over charge it's patrons. Our last visit we had to wait for our table to... More
