It's one of those things you have to say you did at least once in your life. We watched the sun set as we ate and it was wonderful. The food, the atmosphere and the service were great. People strolling the beach walked by but we were feet from the water and we both ate a great piece of fish. I thought it was a little expensive considering most of the fish was caught locally but hey, you're on vacation - if you can't splurge a little think about staying home. This restaurant was in our hotel so I'm assuming we had preference when booking but I'm told it should be done in advance.

Tip - Make sure you leave your camera outside (balcony etc.) 1-2 hours before you eat here. We missed taking pictures of the sunset because our camera was fogged up (too cold in the hotel room vs. too warm outside). It took about 30 minutes for the lens to come back and by that time all we had left were tiki torches for lighting.

We picked this restaurant to eat on the beach an made reservations 4 days in advance (when we arrived at resort). The night of our anniversary we show up an they accidentally gave our table away. They still sat us but I was pretty upset and couldn't understand how this could happen???? Eating on the beach was nice. Food was just okay. Nothing outstanding.

We were lucky to get a reservation, since they were booked all week. Good fortune was with us...... when we were speaking to the Hostess about a reservation, another party came up to the Hostess and cancelled,thus were given their spot. Yeah...a nice Christmas present! We were at the restaurant at sunset, marveling at the beauty of the water and magnificent sky. The concept is lovely...white table cloths, toes in the sand, lighting by torches, and the terrific view. Had a wonderful server, Mauricio, who was very attentive, along with his assistant. We started with the Caesar salad, which was quite tasty. For main courses, we had the grouper, mahi mahi, and chicken. Each was tender and so delicious. The sides of coconut rice, fried plantains, potatoes, and asparagus were yummy. For dessert, we shared creme brûlée and coconut cake...both divine! Was truly pleased by the service, food, and ambience! Would definitely return next time in Aruba,

Very good seafood, with a variety of " catch of the day" fish cooked in your choice of preparations. Service was quick and efficient. A well oiled machine. Blackened wahoo was favorable but not too spicey. Best part is the setting: on the beach with your toes in the sand a few feet from the sea. Romantic for couples.

When we arrived in Aruba we made a reservation with the Concierge for Simply Fish. It's a seafood restaurant located on the beach.

When we arrived we were seated facing the water and it was so beautiful and peaceful.

While we were eating the DJ was playing a variety of mellow music and as the evening continued, he would accepted requests and congratulate those celebrating an anniversary, birthday, etc. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary so as he played music we got up to dance, as many of the other couples were as well.

Also while we were eating a couple got engaged and the DJ dedicated a song to them.

It was very romantic and I would recommend it.
