Really enjoyed total experience. Well worth every penny. Sitting with feet in the water while looking over the water is very memorable

At the recommendation of a couple we met while in Aruba, we went to the Flying Fishbone for dinner. It is a very unique experience as all tables are either on a deck with sand or on the beach itself, with a select few tables even slightly in the water so you can feel it reach your feet.

The food was great. The red snapper was about the best I have ever had. We got seats in the water which was really neat. After a while I was ready for my feet to be out of the water for a while. Watching the sunset while eating in the water was a neat experience. They lost our order but... More

Very unique experience. The food was very good; the fish very fresh; definitely a to-go place in Aruba. We were one table back from the front, and the tide was on it's way out so our feet didn't get wet, but either way it was a wonderful place to dine!

Managed to get a table during a fully booked evening to enjoy the fish and sunset: Folks = it's still good - wonderful service (thanks Hilton, you're an asset) and great fish, well prepared, balanced and all in harmony... Call ahead for reservation (I will too)

My boyfriend and I were staying in Aruba this past November 2016. We had heard great things about The Flying Fishbone, but WOW. Everything about this place exceeded our expectations! The atmosphere, the food, the location, the staff, dinner in the water.. it was breath taking! Special shout out to our waiter Hilton who made our experience all the more... More
