Fodor's Expert Review Flying Fishbone

$$$$ Savaneta Romantic Fodor's Choice

Opened in 1977, this was the first restaurant in Aruba to offer feet-in-the-water dining, and that's why the legendary landmark is so worth the trek out to Savaneta for its insanely romantic seaside setting. An international menu is designed to please all palates, but the real culinary draw is fish straight from the island’s most famous local fisherman’s pier located a few doors over. The setting is enchanting, with fabulous sunset views giving way to twinkling lights of tiki torches and lights set in the sea; even the indoor decor is awash with artificial stars.  Reserve well in advance for a table in the water.
