During our stay in Arbua we had the awesome pleasure of having lunch at this delicious spot. The food here is magnificent. I had the grouper and my friends had the red snapper. The fish was well prepared and seasoned. Please make sure you try the onions and hot sauce; great combo. The food and service was so good, we had lunch here twice during our 4 day stay....

The paella was tasty though mostly rice. Very little lobster meat or shrimp but what was there was very good.
My husband could not eat the conch- it was tough from being overlooked.
His shrimp was very good though. I heard people who had shrimp nearby raving about how great their meals were so I think they must do some things very well it just was not our experience.
The glaring billboard shines in your eyes if you are seated facing it - maybe that is to compensate for the view of the dusty roadside. Overall had much better fish elsewhere.

This is the first place we ate at during our quick visit to Aruba. If my spouse had had it his way, we wouldn't have eaten anywhere else after that.

This is a very casual, Caribbean dining experience - mostly outside but covered (shade) with the usual decor: Plants, lights, etc. I liked it.

The food: The food is catch of the day + the usual suspects and you can have it pan fried, grilled or deep fried. I decided to have the fish soup - yummy! Which had lots of delish pieces or white fish, etc. and, of course, the lovely hot sauce as a condiment.

My spouse had grilled grouper and loved it! Done just right.

The server was attentive and fun and didn't mind that we drank all their Balashi.

By far the best value for money that we encountered. Thanks Red Fish!

Didn't get here until our last night and that to our loss. I had asked one of the desk clerks at our Divi Golf Resort for his fish recommendation and this was it, hands down. It was perfect to sit outside with the balmy breeze and a full moon in a simple but wonderful little restaurant to cap our vacation.

We loved this restaurant. We had fried shrimp and fries. The shrimp was fresh and tasted great!! This restaurant was great and unlike most of the restarants in Aruba, the prices were reasonable
