    Being the amateur restaurant critic and foodie that I am, I have not yet been to Papiamento. I've heard from a number of people that it is very expensive. Now, that part doesn't bother me, as I once paid $20 for a thimble full of soup in Taormino Sicily. (That was back in my wild and crazy days). The part that concerns me is people have told me that they leave Papiamento still hungry. I don't mind paying for an expensive meal as long as the quality is good, and the quantity is sufficient. I will eventually make my way to Papiamento because....well because I won't be happy til I've dined at all the fine dining establishments in Aruba!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be sure to call ahead and request a table poolside. Trust me, you will not leave hungry or unhappy!

    Barefoot

    Any comments please. Does being seated on the beach, as opposed to under the palapa, become disturbing due to the pedestrian traffic on the beach?

    We greatly enjoyed our dinner at Barefoot. Check the menu though to make sure there are items which interest you.

    It is not necessarily for "meat and potatoes" type of eaters.

    With that said, I did not notice any pedestrians on the beach, however, from what I understand there are sometimes distractions from Nikky Beach Club next door. We had a table overlooking the beach under the palapa and it was very very nice.

    The seating under the palapa was very nice and comfortable with sand underfoot, to give you the impression of being on the beach.

    Lisa,
    We're wondering about your experiences at Carte Blanche and Soenchi's. Did you wind up going to either or both?

    Carte Blanche does not permit children under 18 and we refuse to leave our 15 yo alone in a hotel room on vacation, even more so in a foreign country. But that is just us. The money we would have spent there on dinner instead went towards dives with Aruba Watersports for my dh and dd.

    Soenchi I will detail more in my review. Very good food but we did not care for the open air location sandwiched between blaring music of the neighboring establishments. We were all disappointed by the "Tear Drop" dessert but again, there is a story behind it and I will go into more detail.

    Lisa,
    Too bad about Carte Blanche. I understand your reluctance. We'll review it when we get back and let you know. No kids with us this time!

    So, the teardrop was disappointing, eh? It looks so good. Can't wait to read the review.

    Welcome back.

    Thanks. It was truly their loss. Dd is a much more adventurous eater than I. She had a duck appetizer AND entree at Soenchi's

    Welcome back.
    I did not realize you were leaving so soon, so wrote the Soenchi part of my review tonight Soenchi's Aruban Cuisine
    It is good incentive to put it in writing before I forget
