Decided to try Red Fish for our first dinner in Aruba. It was NOT a bad decision! We ate here twice last year and knew it would be good this time as well. We both had the whole red snapper grilled (grilled is much better than fried...takes longer to cook but worth it!). Snapper was fresh, perfectly seasoned and delicious! Market price of course but well worth it! Servers were friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back to taste their fresh grouper before we leave Aruba!

We asked a few locals for seafood recommendations - Driftwood and Zee Rovers were mentioned. This restaurant is related to Driftwood but much closer to Palm beach. Our family of four enjoyed our dinner. Service was pretty structured and you can see the kitchen. We ordered grouper, shrimp, fish balls, fries & plantains. The food was excellent. We did not have alcohol but watched the servers make many different cocktails. We did have a tamarind juice and enjoyed it.

1/2 lb platter of fish is $20, shrimp $25 or a 1lb of both is $45. That will be enough to feed 4-6. The fish is cut in steaks with a center bone. They do have a very tasty papaya hot sauce.

I would without reservation strongly recommend this restaurant to any one staying in Palm beach who is looking for good seafood at a reasonable price. Hope you have a great time.

When we arrived we were tired & stumbled across this gem on our way to the hotel. The fish & drinks were awesome. The service was very attentive.

I am unable to review the service here, because we did Take-out twice. The fish was fresh and delicious! There's a chalkboard next to the main entrance that lists the Daily Specials, including the fresh fish of the day.

The restaurant is in the Orange Plaza, about 5 minutes from the High-Rise resorts. It can only be accessed heading north, otherwise, turn into the Pizza Hut parking lot and drive south along the dirt road that runs parallel to the main road.

We ended up eating there twice because it was close to the Renaissance Resort. Had both the red snapper and the grouper, pan fried and grilled and they were delicious. Service was friendly and it's really a simple local restaurant. I would go there again if I am in Aruba again.
