We came here on the words of our awesome tour guide and it did not disappoint!! We ordered the mix seafood of shrimp and fish and it was the best I've ever had! They're deep fried, but without any batter to mask the taste of the actual food! The seasoning was great. We also had the lamb and lobster which was delicious! We just devoured it all ! Great spot to go to!

We wanted to go to Carpaccio, but couldn't find it. So, plan B was Red Fish which we had tried last year. It's a very casual place that's popular with locals and is owned by the folks that own Driftwood. For drinks my wife had a Margerita and I felt like having a Manhattan. It took a while to get our drinks because the bartender didn't know how to make a Manhattan. When I tasted it, it looks like they used dry vermouth instead of sweet vermouth. We ordered Fish Croquettes to share as an appetizer, but we didn't taste any fish - just balls of a doughy mixture with herbs. For entrees, my wife had the Skewered Grilled Shrimp and I had a Grilled Grouper filet. They don't offer bottles of wine, so we had a carafe of wine with dinner. Although the food is very reasonably priced here, I thought the drinks and wine were overpriced. Don't think we'll add to our list for next year.

If I had Red Fish at home, I'd eat here every week. I love restaurants that know what they are doing and keep it in the fairway. Red Fish is just solid, basic food, well-prepared. We were the only tourists in the place for a late lunch. We had pan fried mahi-mahi with a delicious creole sauce. We wanted a local fish just simply done. Even the sides were awesome--the cole slaw beat any I've had. The fried plantain was delectable--maybe it's just as well I don't have one at home after all.

This place was recommended as one of the restaurants the locals frequent. It's small and unassuming and like 90% of the restaurants in Aruba, it's open air. It came highly recommended by one of contractors in the area and was one of our first stops after arriving in Aruba. I personally thought it was a disappointing meals but a couple of people In our party enjoyed it. Looking back on the experience, we all agreed it had the best Margaritas on the island.

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....
