    If you want to go back really far, my favorate place of all time in the Late 1970's and early 1980's was the restaurant at the Talk of the Town. Best steak ever. The French Steakhouse at the Manchebo was owned by the same owner (Ike Cohn), and it is good, but Talk of the Town was the best. I also enjoyed La Paloma. It has been closed for many years. Also, does anyone remember the Cattle Baron? It had a great salad bar.

    We ate at Talk of the Town in 1973 on our honeymoon and we thought it was the greatest restaurant. We were so happy to see them renevote the hotel as it is so pretty as you come into town from the airport.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    we visited twinklebones/tones on a cruise port of call many years ago. our son was a preteen and loved it....we were all very much entertained.
    brought him again as a teen and he was not so impressed.......i think it was his age.......nothing during those teen years impressed him much, other than teen girls and burgers and pizza

    It wasn't a fancy place by any means, but we enjoyed Turtle Cove. It was above the bus station downtown. Ice cold beer and mixed drinks for a great price and pretty good tapas, burgers and sandwiches too.

    I don't remember the name but there was a aruban place by the windmill and it was just a family and they had the best coconut grouper. Maybe it was called the Aruban Destiny? They were only opened for about 1 year. I also loved Rumba. Jonic, the waitress is the best on the Island and now she does mornings at Mathews.

    ahh yes..... aruba destiny restaurant
    it was very good
    we went numerous times for dinner and for coffee and cake after dinner.
    once while at "elenora's crazy grill", which was next door to "destiny", the destiny owner's son came right in and tried to convince us to leave elenora's and come to destiny. (we had not yet ordered) we did not leave.
    on our way out after dinner at elenora's , we did stop in, spoke to the owner and told her that they lost our business due to her sending the kid into another restaurant to hawk customers. about a year later the place was closed. i do think elenora's closed first. destiny had outstanding grouper as kent said and an outstanding coconut cake. we had gone there a few times just for coffee and cake.
