any one have any restuarant recommendations? been there twice, and my favorite place so far has been Marandi's. Also like Chef's table and Madem Janette's. Thought acqua grill was disappointing and El Goucho's was good not great, the steak house at the Radisson is better in my opinion.

Anything water front like Flying fishbone that any one can recommend? Want to try something new, thought the fishbone was OK at best in terms of service and food.

Marina Pirata for reasonably priced seafood and a fantastic view of the sunset.

No great views, but some of the best food on the island can be found at Yamanja Woodfired Grill. Definitely worth a try (downtown).

Check out the site: RestaurantsAruba.com

It gives you locations, websites and reviews; some let you see the menus and the ability to make reservations.

Enjoy!

Phil,

Based on your comments, it looks like your dining likes and dislikes mirror mine! I agree with the posts above recommending Yemanja and Wacky Wahoo's.

For beach dining, I would also recommend Simply Fish at the Marriott. Wonderful atmosphere and the food is good (not over the top great, but good).

Our favorite for beachfront dining is Passions.

We also like a couple of new places that have popped up over the last year: Papillon and Amadeus

Screaming Eagle is also still one of our favorites.
