    I think the only hard part will be picking where to eat every night

    We have done a lot of research and pretty much have read about every restaurant in Aruba. We will have 8 nights and 9 days of Aruba eating time . Any tips on how to choose where to eat at every night? We like all food. Don't wanna sound snobby, but price is not an issue, as we will be on our honeymoon, once in a life time for this kinda spending.. lol.

    Any tips would be great!

    Restaurant preferences are very personal and there are many, many differing opinions here. What one person enjoys, another does not.
    We have done a lot of research and pretty much have read about every restaurant in Aruba.
    Personally I would go back through the posts and read the actual reviews, rather than just the suggestions, eat at "X".

    Our favorites include Passions and the Screaming Eagle as well as Windows on Aruba. We enjoyed the Chefs Table as well, but imo, the others are better for a special ocassion.

    and knowing that the same people who own the Screaming Eagle, own the Flying Fishbone, I add the FFB as well.

    The opinion of my family and my family only.

Dd and I are not that daring . Service was fine.

    We had another perfect dinner at Windows on Aruba. Due to price and menu it is not for everyone, but our Christmas dinner was perfect. 12 people and not a single complaint, even from the finicky teenagers. They ate Chateaubriand Life is good.

    Passions has won our hearts as our favorite restaurant. Always consistant with excellent service. After a long relaxing dinner under the stars dh annouced Passions was our new Aruba ritual...first and last nights dinner on Aruba.

    Although not on the water, possibly our most favorite and romantic place to eat is Papiamento! The tables around the pool are too open for privacy (IMHO!) -- we love the ones in the surrounding "garden", in little foliage nooks with white lights on the branches!

    If you truly enjoy food and are adventurous diners, then definitely go to Carte Blanche. It is a 4 or 5 course meal (you pick the number and the chef picks the courses) and is a great evening of a food and wine event. You do need to book at least a month or more in advance since they only seat 14 people per night. It's amazing! We've been twice now and still rave about it.

    Another favorite of ours for beach, toes in the sand dining is Passions.
