    Mirandi

    Has anyone been to Mirandi? I googled them, but could not pull up any pictures so I don't know if it's on the beach or not - ? (or where it is). I was able to view their menu, but no prices on it so I'm curious to get an idea on how pricey it is too. A friend of a friend just ate there a couple of weeks ago & was very happy w/it, but that's all I know. Thanks! (And does anyone know if there's an email address to make reservations for Wacky Wahoo's? All I saw was a phone # on their website & I don't know how to call that from the states). Thank you!

    We didn't have time to eat at Marandi on our last trip - but we've eaten there many times in the past and it's always been great! It is on the other side of the airport (away from downtown) and sits on a pier over the water (not on the beach.)

    Wacky Wahoo does not have an email address. You can call them when you arrive in Aruba to make reservations.

    Mirandi

    We went last summer and loved it. We are having our wedding dinner there next July. We were originally were going to go to MJ but we loved the setting on the water. We will still go to MJ's when we are there. The evening we went, we rented a car but you could easily take a taxi.

    Went 2visits ago. Lovely new location, on water but not beach. We went to the old location b4 that. I loved my meal at the old location but when we went to the new one the menu had changed. I was so in love with my first meal that I think thats why I was disappointed at the new one...Plus our waitress had an attitude and wasn't that friendly. However, I will say it might be back on the radar for one of our next 2 upcoming visits...friends/relatives did like it.
    I might have even put some pics up on the gallery here. cindy

    Amy,

    Pete & I dined at Papillion one evening also.....one of those funny moments happened with DH the not so obvious picky eater. (But he is)

    Service was excellent, food was pretty good. My lamb was not the best but the service made up for it... DH had the fillet which also had a pillaf and something breaded on the side..

    However, DH was raving about the unknown item on his plate to the Server, "Wow, I am not sure what this is but it is great!" He almost lost his tan and went pale when they explained what "Sweet Meat" was.

    It made for a great night!

    Do you mean veal "sweetbreads"...also known as either the thymus (throat sweetbread) and/or the pancreas? I have a friend who loves them! Very popular with chefs and French restaurants.

    At least he tried it BEFORE he knew what it was (that's the way I like to try new things...don't tell me what it is until after I've tried it!)

    Cindy....almost done with my trip report and photos...should have it posted by tomorrow.
