    These are our favorites that come to mind when I think of these places:

    2. Old Man and the Sea - Papaya seared catch of the day (although they have expanded their menu since we were there in Sept. so lots more to pick from now)

    3. Hard Rock - beer! (seriously, at every Hard Rock I've ever been to the food has always been mediocre.)

    5. Buccaneer - catch of the day (hopefully it'll be barracuda which is great!)

    7. Matthews - tuna (loved the tuna - both the appetizer tuna tataky and the entree); the kebabs

    8. Wacky Wahoo's - black bean soup; catch of the day grilled with tomatoes, olives, and lime (yum!)

    9. Yemanja - salmon salad; tenderloin; catch of the day; dessert (I think it was the Belgian waffle dessert that we shared that was so good - photo below)





    Okay, I'm hungry now!!!!

    Hope it helped a little anyway. But it's hard though because what I like might not be what someone else would like/order. Also kinda depends on what I'm in the mood for that night - know what I mean? Sometimes I can be the pickiest eater and other times I will eat anything in front of me!

    I noticed Matthew's on your list. Where is it located and what kind of food is it? I never heard of it.

    Matthew's is located at Casa del Mar. They've been open for a little over a year now (owned by the same people who used to own Rumba.)

    We loved Yemanja too! It has become one of our new favourites as well. We will be there again in February.

    As far as Matthew's goes, we tried it for the first time this December. We found the location very nice but we didn't love are meal. It was ok but nothing outstanding,IMO.



    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Dining

    I agree with the Yemanji recommendation. Lovely place warm people and great well prepared food. Hard Rock is not for me. I still enjoy Que Pasa and Marandi very much.
    I will be there Feb 12th through the 28th. The anticipation is almost unbearable.
