We have been a few days ago to this restaurant and we fell in love with it. Beautiful location, just on the water, good food and great service. It well deserves a visit. It's off the beaten tourist path.

A friend recommended that we try Marina Pirata on a recent trip to Aruba and I am so glad they did!!! This place was AMAZING!!! It was off the beaten path but so worth it! The service was excellent, the food delicious, and the atmosphere/view was incredible!!! Can't wait for my next trip to Aruba and dinner at Marina Pirata!

Incredible food. Excellent service. Awesome sunset view. We enjoyed our night here. Our server who has been their for 15 years was terrific. Very attentive to needs and so sweet. Our food was wonderful and the location was so great! If you drive, once you think you are lost.... You are likely there!! Truly hidden treasure.

Marina Pirate was recommended by friends who are repeat visitors to Aruba. This was my favorite dinner experience of our vacation. My husband and I like to explore off the resort and especially like places that feel more "local." Marina Pirate did not disappoint. We arrived around sunset and got the last table on the deck. Sheila our server was... More

We went on the recommendation of a friend. Quite out of the way-a $20 cab ride for us. But so worth it! We arrived about 8:30 pm. There were only a few tables and we were sat right on the edge of the deck by the water. The food was wonderful. I had the 5 star soup and grilled grouper.... More

After visiting Aruba for the 3rd time we finally paid Marina Pirata a visit. Boy, I wish we did it earlier! Nice romantic setting, simple but excellent tasty food.

This restaurant is off the beaten path with a romantic setting on the water and excellent food and service. The food was very good and had a variety of price ranges. The grouper was so fresh and they will prepare anything how you want it. Great sunsets!

Every time we travel, we look for that seafood restaurant that oozes with ambience and local charm. That is exactly what we got here. We arrived on a Sunday evening just as the sun set. We had a full moon and starry skies. Our two teenage sons sat at the chairs right by the water, watching and feeding the fish... More

The food was good, mostly seafood which I'm not a fan of so I had the steak. It was tender and well cooked. My partner had the shrimp, he says they were perfectly cooked and tasted really good. The view is great and we got to see the fish whilst we ate. The staff didn't mind us feeding them bread... More
