If you had 6 nights ... what restaurants would you choose?

Staying at Bucati ... what 6 dinner spots would you pick for an adult couple. We like good food, romantic locations, good service, and not full of screaming children or screaming drunks. :)

Suggestions for restaurants from Bucati? Thanks!

I believe you're staying at the Bucuti, not Bucati. :)

This is a great Aruba restaurant website to help with choices:

http://www.restaurantsaruba.com/

For romantic and good food, I would choose the following:

Passions on the Beach

Carte Blanche (need advance reservations)

Screaming Eagle

White Modern Cuisine

Pinchos

Barefoot

Madame Janette's

Yemanja

Chefs Tables

We were just there the first week of March,stayed next door at Costa Linda and looked for similar restaurants to what you are seeking. I'd suggest:

Madame Janette's

Sunset Grill

Chalet Suise

I would not bother with Elliot's or the French Steakhouse even though they are walking distance to the Bucati.

Bucuti! (Sorry, correct spelling of Bucuti and Marandi are a couple of my pet peeves.) :)

IMHO, This is the most underrated restaurant in Aruba. Not in terms of good reviews but in terms of Aruba regulars visiting it. Hope that changes and some of your make it a regular stop when on the Island.

Madame Janette's is our favorite. That's a definite stop every trip. I noticed Flying Fishbone is on some lists. I thought that was overrated and too long a drive from Bucuti (IMHO).

RVHA, have a great trip. You will love Bucuti. Another favorite of ours.
