What a wonderful surprise finding this restaurant. It was great! The squid was good (breaded) but the squid in garlic sauce was so much better. Husband had the seafood platter that was simmered in garlic and oyster sauce and it was tender and tasted great. Usually we don't go back to the same restaurant but this may be the exception....

Good was good service was slow but we did order a huge platter of seafood so I'd assume it would take time to make so I'm still giving them 5 stars. Staff was very nice and dressed nicely as well.

We found that place by chance and we were delighted ! Food was very good (I particularly remember the creamy seafood soup) and we enjoyed a very nice and cozy atmosphere. We were literally next to the water and we could see fish swimming next to us! We would go again!

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
