We loved it! It was the best food and service of any restaurant we went to. We went twice while we were there. You can sit on the deck and feed the fish. A great experience.

We were referred to this hidden gem by others staying at our apartment complex. Food is out of this world. View is spectacular. First night we had appetizers and entrees. Second night we simply opted for a couple of appetizers. Watched the sunset right on the pier. Our waitress the second time around was soo personable and helpful!

I had an opportunity to dine at Marina Pirata on April13, 2017. I have traveled to Aruba many times, but this was my first experience at this charming restaurant. It is a bit of a trip from the high rise section of Palm Beach, but well worth it. The setting is wonderful, it felt like we were floating on the... More

Great outdoor dining experience on deck over the water. The staff is very friendly and professional. The food is good local dishes. Very casual. It is about a 20 minute drove from the high rise hotel. Limited but inexpensive wine list. Romantic and also good for kids. Throw some bread into the water and watch the fish jump of it.

My visit to Marina Pirata was awesome and the food was delicious. Its in a very secluded area but don't be alarmed... it's worth the trip. The pricing is fair for a tourist area and the food is fresh. Ask for a table on the dock. The fish literally come up to you during dinner.

Great view of the sunset as most of the seating is on the dock. Good food. Waiters throw uneaten bread in the water and you get to watch the fish eat. Lights in the water provide for a romantic setting once the sun goes down. Food was good.

This little hidden gem has exquisite and fresh seafood. The views are phenomenal, especially during sunset. The soups are good as is everything in the menu. For dessert, try the cheesecake. The seating is outside on a wooden dock area overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

This was our second year and forth visit to Marina Pirata. Dinner was good and the service could have been a bit better, but overall nice. Mostly fish options. The beer battered shrimp was our favorite. Look at Google Maps before you go and take a photo of the detailed map. It's not difficult (in the daylight), but it can... More
