Absolutely agree about Mme J's..... in the garden near the entertainment. It's a 'can't miss' dinner experience. Also agree about Passion's.... great atmosphere with only OK food. I personally don't care for Aqua Grille with three tries.... too pricy and no real island feel. Good luck with the choices!YOU HAVE TO GO TO MADAME JANETTE. Ask for a table near the entertainment stage.
I wouldn't do both Simply Fish and Passion. I'm not a fan of the food at Passions. I went a few times only because friends wanted to go. They agreed that the food wasn't the best. It does have a very romantic atmosphere though. I would go to either Simply Fish or Barefoot for dining on the beach. Barefoot also has inside seating under a big palapa.
La Vista - The breakfast buffet is amazing, but expensive @ $25 for adults; 1/2 price for kids. I go once or twice every trip. Wednesday and Saturday is Lobster night. Again expensive about @ $54.95 a person.
Blue Lobster - except for 1 friend that enjoyed the food there, most reviews give it a thumbs down.
Matthew's Beachside at Casa Del Mar has good food and a nice atmosphere. Tuesday is all-you-can-eat rib night.
Casa Tua, Salt & Pepper, Fishes 'n More at Arawak Gardens are good choices.
Wacky Wahoo is must go to if you are fish eaters.
MJ's and Flying Fishbone ( Car required) are ALWAYS on our list....Good list to begin with..but agreed....take the advice of the forum posters here ...I have not been led astray. Enjoy your trip !
We love MJ's and Chalet Suisse for a great dinner.... for something not as fancy with the kids.... Casa Tua for pizza and a salad is great (they have other stuff) or smokey joes for ribs and chicken their Fried oreo dessert is AMAZING. also Azzuro at Playa Linda is nice for sunset and their Pasta Wheel dinner is really good...
