My husband and I spent a week in Aruba, and checked out the grilled fish at many of the local restaurants. The swordfish here was the best of the lot! Prices are about on par with most restaurants on Aruba, and the menu options were a bit more interesting than most.

This has become a welcome addition to our Aruba favorites. The triple tail is amazing as was all of the appetizers that we tried

Although the service was a little slow in the beginning, the meal turned out to be an excellent experience. Refined with an island feel. The outdoor patio has great atmosphere. The portions were quite large.

My husband and I are vegetarians and this place had terrific options for us. It does get really busy so make a reservation. By far this was my favorite restaurant during our trip.

This restaurant is located in Oranjestad behind the Renaissance hotel.The service and atmosphere are welcomed. They are noted for their stuffed fish with Gouda cheese. I have had it an it is delicious. I have also had their steaks and they are also very good. They are grilled on a wood fired stove which gives the steak an excellent flavor. I like the way that they serve the side dishes. They are served family style and usually serve four. All are good
