I'm probably opening Pandora's Box with this, but here goes. Let me say, I love kids! I have two of my own. I especially love little ones! I happen to have three little grandchildren and I love them more than I can describe.
We've had lots of questions on this forum about what restaurants are good for kids. My answer is: any restaurant I've been to is good for children in Aruba if your children is good to the restaurant. I probably won't reach the people who need this most, but at Barefoot on Valentine's Night we had a wonderful dinner and the little girl at the next table was doing cartwheels in the sand. Sand going everywhere. She was beating her sand pail as a drum....well you get the idea. Everyone noticed her except her parents. Saturday night at almost 9:30 kids were climbing over the backs of seats and standing on the cloth covered chairs at Pure Ocean. We also saw lots of children having fun with their families in restaurants, but it's always the ones who don't care about the other diners that make a memory!
