Make sure to have a reservation. Fabulous food and wonderful service. Get there for the sunset. I found that a salad and appetizer was just fine.

Aruba was one of our cruise stops, and after a while, we were happy to have something else besides the food on the ship. The scenery was beautiful, the food was good, and the service was perfect. I would definitely recommend.

This is our third trip to Aruba as a family and we have done the Flying Fishbone a couple of times and wanted a change of scenery. This place has amazing reviews - and it's position on the beach is great - but it was just ok. As two adults and two kids ate for $188 including tip (2 glasses... More

Our server was attentive and knowledgeable on food and wine. Dinning on the beach at sunset was a great setting for my birthday dinner with my husband. The breeze was wonderful as the sun turned the sky pink during a wo useful dinner.

Description
Aruba is all about the fabulous beaches during the day, and the many great restaurants at night. It is only logical that these two unique things of Aruba are combined into one! Luc & Gerco found the perfect spot to synergize great food, and a beautiful setting to create an experience almost unique on our island. When listening to the ocean caressing the shore, while wiggling your toes through the pearly white sand, why not let yourself be pampered by a gourmet dinner? Chef Gerco & Maitre d' Luc had a shared dream of opening up a restaurant here, but wanted something in line with what they enjoy on Aruba: the nearly perfect climate, the possibility to always be outside, the tropical feel... When opening their restaurant, they had these ideas in their heads, and it worked like a charm! Tables under a large palapa on a wooden deck with a view of the ocean, or outside under the Aruban nights sky, on the pristine beach... An original menu was created by Gerco and team, with some of the old school favorites as well as locally influenced dishes. With the help of the local wine suppliers, Luc made an extensive wine list, with wines from all over the world, and is always ready to pair a wine with your dinner. The experienced service team is friendly yet professional, ready to wow you from the moment you walk in, to make a fabulous evening into a great memory on Aruba!
