We had a rental car and drove to Marina Pirata. Very friendly service. Great views over the water of the sunset. Food was really great - appetizers, main courses and drinks. Will come back when we visit Aruba!

Great location to have dinner by candle light. The fishes swim right to the platform, where you enjoy your dinner. Nice for a romantic date or a group celebration. The prices are medium to high priced.

Staff was friendly, but the food was only so so. Dining on the pier at sunset is a plus. We ordered two different fish dishes and both tasted pretty much the same. Maybe something else on the menu had more flavor, but I wasn't willing...More

If you can get here for sunset you should. It is a perfect spot to take it in and have dinner. The service is lovely and my daughter loved feeding the fish right from the dock. The grilled shrimp were very good. Lovely dining spot...More

We were unable to eat in the restaurant as our daughter was sick. We placed and order to take it home to eat. Yummy. The menu is interesting and very good. The interior of the place looks great and is right on the water.

Never have had a bad meal. Try to dine here at least one night every visit to the island. Brought friends who live on the island and they too enjoyed their first visit to Marina Pirate.

depends on the time of year you go. From March-June, definitely need a reservation. If you want to eat at sunset, I recommend getting a reservation at 6 no matter what time of year.

It's about 20 min from the low rise hotels. I'm not sure how much a taxi is but it's a little further than the airport.
