This was my second time dining at Arubas and again I had a delicious meal. Each time I ordered my fish blackened and the spice rub is mouth watering and the beans and rice side is a nice addition. I like that they have live music and more than 1 bar area, so its certainly a great hang out spot. IOf course you cant beat the view - literally right on the beach and if you cant get a table outside, you can sit inside along the wall to wall windows to overlook the ocean. I do highly recommend sitting outside if you can. Highly recommended!

If you do sit inside, try to request a table away from the band or music, much quieter and at least you can carry on a conversation with your table.

Many people keep the Aruba hopping all the time, especially night time, where you can get a meal, listen to live music and dance, or just people watch from one of their three bars. Fridays are big for their free buffet, a roasted pig or a nice cut of roast, and half price drinks.
The food is pretty good, mostly seafood though, if you are not into seafood, grab their burger or an appetizer of many choices.
I myself like the bamboo chicken, or their Aruba salad with a great serving of chicken on top.
My husband like their Nacho's also. Thier menu is huge, so there are many pickings depending on you mood for food.
The Aruba is a fun fun place for sure, if you just want a drink, an appetizer, or a meal, you have to choice of inside or outside. The Aruba is right on the beach, so there is really no bad seating.
You will see lots of baloons inside and out, for when you seating is ready, they will find you.
The outside bench next to thier lifesize fisherman, is a great place to watch the valets bring around the fancy and exotic cars, and you get to see the people who drive them when exiting the Aruba, still dancing to the music!

Whenever we visit the ft Lauderdale area we eat here several times, lunch and dinner:) Salads are great, and so many great dishes that you have to go back to try several of them. Strawberry salad, escargots, bisque, mozzarella stack...all delicious. Make sure you order a loaf of the fresh daily Bimini bread...when they run out you are out of luck for the day. Bring it home and warm up in micro or use for French toast:) Bon Apetit

Nice view of the beach, music and busy place. Because it was so busy and the music was loud we just ordered cheese cake key lime pie, ate it outside overlooking the beach. We enjoyed the view and the cheesecake.

Nice restaurant stop if you are flying into FLL. Not too far away and right on the beach so if you are hungry for sand and sun just after landing from a flight from cold, dreary Ohio, then Aruba is a good choice. Food was great, service a bit slow but the seating on the patio was extra special.
