    Have you tried Lionfish? Where?

    We are interested in trying Lionfish (to eat) when we are in Aruba. Has anyone eaten it? Can you describe the taste or texture? Does it compare to another kind of fish? What restaurants in Aruba serve it regularly?
    Andrea mentioned that http://hadicurari.com/ is one place to check. We had a nice grilled fish buffet there once so I will check that out. Any others?
    I am looking forward to the responses.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    I had lionfish at Screaming Eagle but it was a special "catch of the day" the night we were there. I really liked it - it was a nice mild white fish that reminded me a bit like halibut as far as texture/taste (which I also like alot.) I would definitely have it again.

    Tracy, I've been on the island almost 2 weeks at Surf Club. Hadicurari had it darn near daily last year. I've checked there every day since I've been here and it hasn't been on the menu or the special once. I was really hoping to try it this year but so far no luck and I'm just about out of time.

    Try Nos Clubhuis which is just above Hadacurari. We go there a lot for happy hour and it seems like it's always on their menu.
