Flying Fishbone Review

This friendly, relaxed beach restaurant is well off the beaten path in Savaneta, so be sure to have a map in the car. You can dine with your toes in the water or enjoy your meal on the wooden deck. The emphasis here is on fresh seafood—beautifully presented on colorful beds of vegetables—but there are good choices for landlubbers, too. The shrimp, shiitake, and blue-cheese casserole is a tried-and-true favorite kept on the menu to keep the regulars happy. This place pulls a crowd year-round. Arrive early for dinner to get a good table nearer the water.

    Just Beautiful

    I have been to many great restaurants all over the world, but this has to be the prettiest setting to have dinner just about anywhere. Tables in the sand, barefoot waiters, beautiful sunset, lights in the water. I can't say enough. The food was very good and the ride from the hotel area long (relatively speaking) but very worth it. Of all the reataurants we went to in Aruba, this is the one I would return to every single time. Book online and for around 6pm so you can see the sunset.

    An incredible experience

    The fishbone offers great seafood in a unique beautiful setting. My wife and I sat on the beach in the sand (yes where your sandals that night) watching an incredible sunset take place while enjoying our meal. Both the food and the service were great. The Fishbone is on the other side of the island and is ½ hour cab ride ($30.00 one way) from Eagle beach but worth it. Put it at the top of you list if you visit the island and do not forget your camera if you go.

    Very Romantic

    Great sunset (about 3 minutes in May!!) and a nice location on the beach. Very good food. Limited wine list (we are yes, wine snobs).
