    How's my list?

    Heading to Aruba in April with another family. Staying in the High Rise area. Both families have 2 teens each. These are the restaurants I have done some research on that seem fun and lively for a group of 8 with teens. Any other suggestions? CaseTua, Pelican's Nest, Bucaneer, Smokey Joe's, Senor Frogs, Moombas, Texas de Brazil, El Gaucho, Hostaria da Vittorio, Aqua Grill, Iguana Joes, Sunset Beach Bistro. I realize some of these are outside the high rise area. Any others recommended around the high rise area?

    For a casual night in the high rise area how about Tomato Charlies?

    There are some new places just opening in the new Palm Beach Plaza (across the street from Soprano's) in the high rise hotel area. The teenagers might like the new Hard Rock and also a new Jamaican place called Kool Runnings.

    We have three teenagers so I totally understand where you are coming from....

    I might not try Hostaria da Vittoria, it is very pricey and have not had the greatest reviews. From my own personal experience, we used to go there all the time and just loved it until a few years ago. We haven't been over our last two visits as we didn't find that they were as good in terms of service and food especially for their price point. Don't mind paying if its good.

    We go to Casa Tua a lot as it is within walking distance, not pricey and always good. For a "dinning" experience (they move more slowly) we have been going to Gianni's for Italian too. Also, walking distance.
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Azzuro in Playa Linda (now that Dennis is back as manager) with great views of the sunset and ocean!!! I'd go there rather than Hostaria. Went a few years ago at the insistence of our Italian friend from the North End in Boston. Kind of funny really as I didn't particularly like the food (very pricey and service.....) but he HATED it!!! Groused constantly about lack of garlic, no taste, etc. until I reminded him it was his suggestion and so just "shut up" lol!!! We love to get the pasta at Azzuro (Gianni's and Sole Mare do it too - all owned by same family) in a big wheel of cheese. Yummy!!!

    For dining with teens, I echo that Casa Tua is a good idea, especially with Sopranos right next door. Bingo is a good idea for a casual dining night. Wacky Wahoo is a thought. Taste of Belgium, with its outdoor seating facing the water show, outside at Passeo Hernencia is another good pick.

    Mostly bad reviews on Hostaria. Matthews is another good pic for a family.

    Great dining experience

    My nieces were just here, ages 14 & 16 for 2 weeks and they loved Aruba. Their favorite restaurants were Senior Frogs, Buccaneer, French Steakhouse, Moomba beach, Promenade, Amazonia & Salt and Pepper.
    Many of the restaurants are having February specials because the island has slowed down drastically and to bring in guests they are having great specials.
    Check on arubatoday.com local section and check out the daily specials.
    Capturing the passion and love of your special day in paradise.
