We went here on a Sunday night. Have been here several times over the years. Sits on a very depressing side street but it was safe(as is Aruba in general).Alot of local folks eat here and the feeling is comfortable.The food is good to average and the prices are ok. Just cant get excited about eating here anymore.Too many other places to try.

The Old Fisherman was recommended to us by 3 local taxi drivers. We figured it would be good and it was. The atmosphere is rather weak and the service was slow but the food was excellent. I had the lobster tail for 50 bucks but it was big and tasty. My wife had a seafood dish that was excellent. Our only disappointment was with the desert as they only offered us ice cream and it wasn't good.

We had the best meal on the island at old fisherman! its right across the bus terminal in oranjestad!
My wife had the mix seafood and it was the best meal she had on the whole trip. I had the rednsapper fillet in creamy garlic sauce and it tasted EXCELLENT!
The price is fair for the quality of meal you get.

I recommend this local restaurant to everyone!!

The service was slow and since they did not everything down they forgot an appetizer. The red snapper was totally dry and parts of it smelled strong from fish. Also for that portion of fish the price is much too high. There are much better restaurants in Aruba for fish.
