If cost was not an issue what would be the top 5 must do dining experiences on Aruba with food quality and atmosphere being most important. Thanks

I just wanted to add that while the size and number of patrons in Wacky Wahoo's does not lend itself to a romantic or relaxed atmosphere, their ceviche and pan-fried wahoo (or kingfish, or barracuda...you see where I am headed with this) makes a visit to the restaurant well worth your time.

Did I mention the cashew cake???
