Fodor's Expert Review Marandi

$$$ Oranjestad and Environs Eclectic Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This seaside restaurant is simultaneously cozy and chic. Tables are tucked under a giant thatched roof by the water's edge. The emphasis here is on Caribbean-influenced dishes using only fresh fish. Popular options include mushroom risotto and the fresh catch of the day. There's a good selection of wines on offer and the waiter will happily suggest the perfect pairing for every course. This is a popular place for romantic occasions and deservedly so. If possible book an early dinner and have sunset cocktails while watching the sun go down and the neighborhood fish swimming about right next to your table. The location is a bit out of the way but worth it for the view and excellent food. Mosquitos can be a problem depending on the time of year, so bring repellent with you or ask the server.
