We heard about The Flying Fishbone from friends. We suspected it would be hard to get in without a reservation, but since it was a bit before the high season started, and it was a bit late in the evening, we ventured in without a reservation. We received a warm welcome and we got a table on the beach near the building. While we were having drinks and awaiting our appetizers, the maitre d' came to our table and asked if we would like to move to a table closer to the water. A table had become vacant and I suspect there were no more diners expected that evening. It is the first time I've ever been in a restaurant where a prime table opens up and I've been asked if I would like to improve my seat. Very impressive!
The table near the water was truly superb; it was a beautiful night, and the lights from the restaurant lit the blue sea. Truly something out of a dream.
So the setting is ideal. What about the service and the cuisine? The wait staff was gracious, accommodating, efficient and friendly. The cuisine was outstanding. The finest restaurants in New York City could do no better than Flying Fishbone.
If you visit Aruba, I would highly recommend you pay a visit to Flying Fishbone. It may very well be the dining highlight of your vacation.
