My wife and I have been visiting Aruba several times year for the past few years. Sadly this year we are only getting one trip... so we need to make the most of it. We want to try a few new restaurants and hit a few of our old faves.
We are going Monday May 30 - Monday June 6
So far this is the plan...
Monday - Casa Tua (Either the original or the greek one depending on lines)
Tuesday - Marandi (We have always wanted to go but haven't)
Wednesday - Chalet Suisse (Another one that has been on our to-do list forever and just never got around to it)
No plans the rest of the week... and having trouble deciding.
MJ's (Always been pretty good, but pricey)
Pincho's (Only restaurant we have visited on EVERY trip to Aruba - love the views and the staff and the food is basic but great)
Que Pasa (Great menu - and love the ambiance)
Smokey Joe's (Best BBQ on the Island)
Salt & Pepper (Good for a post happy hour dinner)
Rembrandt Cafe (Great food at a great price)
We don't like
Amazonia (Too pricey and too much food)
Yemanja (Wanted to like this place - but had a pretty horrible experience - we have always considered going back due to such positive reviews)
Tomato Charlie's (Is this pizza?)
Old Man and the Sea (So dissapointed after such a long drive. Seemed like we were eating Microwave meals. The setting is spectacular though)
El Gaucho (Everyone told me to go here - so so steaks and had some undercooked pork)
Would love a few suggestions for the upcoming trip. Not gonna make it back out to Aruba until 2012 (Missing New Year's for the first time in a while).
