We really enjoyed every single aspect of the restaurant. The food, ambience, service. We were most pleased to get a table in the water, very romantic!

The Flying Fishbone was recommended to us by a family a friend, and it did not disappoint! The restaurant itself was beautiful, with multiple seating options (on the deck, inside, or even right in the water), and the vibe was perfect. We opted to have our toes in the water which was such a unique experience. The staff was super... More

Had dinner at The Flying Fishbone on our recent trip to Aruba. SO incredibly worth it. We stayed at the Hilton and realized the trip to the restaurant was about 30 mins away and about a $30 cab ride one way. we almost cancelled our reservation but are SO HAPPY we did not. This place has gorgeous views unseen anywhere... More

Definitely make a reservation here! Request the sand for a 5:00 seating in order to watch the sunset while your feet are literally in the sand and water.

Upon coming across this restaurant, I honestly thought the reason for the price was because of the location. When arriving the location from outside is nothing like when you walk inside. Beautiful location and unique. That still didn't convince me that the price was worth eating. We were originally going to go there to take a few pictures and have... More
