Outside Dinner on the beach

Hello - We are going to Aruba with a group of 12 people. We are looking for a special night for dinner on the beach. We would like a nice place - it is a birthday dinner. We are staying at the Marriot.

Any suggestions?

The Marriott has a very nice beach dinning place called Simply Fish; great at sunset. You can see it on their web site or probably on this site as well.

I second Simply Fish. The food was excellent when we were there! The sunset is just as good there as it was at Passions, IMO the food was better at Simply Fish.

Our favorite beach dining is Passions - located on Eagle Beach near Amsterdam Manor.

Another favorite that people like is Barefoot - located on Surfside Beach.

Since you are a large group I would pick Simply Fish since you are staying at the Marriott.. If you have your own vehicles you wouldn't want to drive if you are "celebrating". Or you would have to take 3 taxi's with 12 people to get anywhere else..

We liked Passions a LOT, but I have to agree with Liz.

Passions is more "couple-y," too--lots of folks go there for romance and if your party gets a bit raucous, it might interfere with the ambiance AMBR has cultivated so nicely.

Have a great trip!

I can vouch for Barefoot, but Simply Fish makes a lot of sense. Never been there, so can't offer any critique. Maybe you could consider renting a 12 passenger van for a few days. Drive to other locales.Or two smaller vans
