    As far as I know you can wear whatever shoes you are comfortable in

    Has anyone noticed that the Papiamento restaurant website seems to be down? I got this message -- This site has been suspended. Unless I'm looking at the wrong place. Hope it's just a temporary problem...

    i agree with Arubacandy. I would skip Laguna AND Smokey Joes for ribs (yes i have been to both) and definitely go to Matthews at Casa del Mar on a Tuesday night when they have all you can eat ribs. they are BY FAR the BEST ribs I have ever had!! You wont be sorry!! Have fun and Congrats!!!!

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    I echo those who favour Smokey Joe's for ribs. Better than anybody else's, including Laguna.

    I notice you didn't mention El Gaucho. Must have been an oversight.

    A vacation in Aruba is wonderful, that's why we all go there so often. However, laying in the sun all that time plus swimming, snorkeling, shopping and playing in the casinos; you use up a lot of protein doing those things and that protein has to be replaced. Ei Gaucho's 16oz Gaucho steak is the best tasting source of protein on the planet. Don't think of it so much as a retaurant recommendation. Think of it as me caring about your health. You can thank me later.

    All this talk on credit card authorizations at the other thread reminded me of asking you whether Gianni's and Smokey Joe's accept walk ins. My plan is making reservations for all other restaurants, but for these two we wouldn't like to stick ourselves to a certain time (e.g we plan to go to Smokey Joe's on the evening we return from our day trip to Curaçao. If the flight is delayed, we could end losing the reservation).

    BTW, the Papiamento website is back.

    Glenn, sorry I forgot to reply to you. Thanks for the recommendations -- I guess meat lovers may envy us a little for being much closer to the original source of Argentinean barbecue!

    Yes walk ins are accepted at both G and SB.

    That being said, once you get to Aruba it is always a good idea to make a reservation. It won't be high season while you are there, but i really recommend on not chancing it........maybe you could speak to the host/hostess at Giannis and explain the circumstances.

    My husband really likes Smokey Bones.

    Hi Marcio,
    I'm also a fellow Brazilian going to Aruba in May but I'm going with my one year old son and wife. Maybe we can share ideas on what to do.
    Rgds,

    Back in November I had written

    But today I entered their website again and looks like they're closing on Sundays now. Can anyone confirm this? If they are open on Tuesdays now, I may consider it for dinner after the Bon Bini Festival...
