    Can you help me find this place???

    Over the past two years we keep hearing about a restaurant down town that sells seafood. The owner goes out on his boat in the morning and serves what he catches. Is there a place like this? It is supposed to be tucked away near the casino- I think.
    Thanks

    The owners of Wacky Wahoo's also catch the fish they serve. I've heard more positive reviews of Wacky Wahoo's http://wackywahoos.arubapaintings.com/ and the Old Fisherman http://www.theoldfishermanaruba.com/page/index.html then I have of Driftwood.

    I wasn't impressed with Driftwood. I only went once in my 10 years of going to Aruba. I put Wacky Wahoo's on my list for this year....thx Liz

    Wacky Wahoo is one of our favorite & do go fishing every morning.

    Downtown, we do like The Old Fisherman. Not sure if they catch their own or buy.

    Congrats on your wedding Sept. 18, our 10th anniversary is the 19th. We will be in Aruba then celebrating. Enjoy. I have heard good things about Wacky Woo. We have eaten at the Driftwood once, it was good.

    Loved the Old Fisherman - not too many tourists -- very good local dishes.

    Tourists often say, "I want the LOCAL food" when they really don't mean it. The local food is usually very basically seasoned, fried, then covered with creole sauce. Many places do this well. If you want seafood as you know it in big city restaurants, you'd do better at Aqua (which I love). You can also "shoot up the center" and try Hadacurari.
