    My take on our dining....

    We had some great meals this visit. It was definately better than our April trip...why you ask? We hit several new places and that made the difference. We found we couldn't depend on the "ole favorites" anymore.

    Here's the list ( my version, not rob's)
    Wacky Wahoo....They should end it with another W for WOW. Great meal, great service, nice ambience. A home tun for us. Rob's grouper was fabulous, my shrimp excellent, and the girls had the fettucine alfredo. Bully recommended it to us, and it was great.

    Yemanja..another new one for us. Rob and I went alone. Had the scallops and grouper w/boursin cheese. 4 sides also came: beans, rice, mashed and stir fry. Great service, location perfect for us to walk to. Would go again.

    CILO...new restaurant, in my opinion is a great addtion to the Renn marketplace. Nice menu, lots of good choices, moderately priced. We went for breakfast, and then the girls returned for their dinner one evening. All very happy.

    Starbucks..another new additon to the Renn marketplace. The place was packed every morning. Great place for coffee and breakfast. They also had some nice sandwhiches, fruit salads, scones, muffins...

    Dutch Pancake House- Had a great breakfast there with Randi and her family. I had a wonderful blueberry crepe, kids mini pancakes, rob bacon crepe...all were yummy.

    Some old favorites that we also visited included; Casa Tua, Salt and Pepper. Plaza Cafe, Hing Paradise & Hard Rock.

    I am scratching my head for a few that we return to....why, I don't know...Iguana Joes comes to mind very quickly..

    These are just mho's, no one elses...cindyo

    I can't wait to try Wacky Wahoo this trip, we did Yemanja last trip and reallly liked it I would like to go again this year and sit outside. Probably the old faithful MJ's then the friends we are going with want to go to ElGaucho (they say everyone tells them they have to go there, their 1st trip to aruba) and an Italian may try Azzurro this trip and maybe a beach dining.....not sure yet which one.....any suggestions....

    Have you tried Pinchos or Mirandi's...Both "deck" dining but good. Others on the board love Passions.

    The way people dine on Aruba has definitely changed, since my last visit in April. It's a function of the economy, mostly. You aren't seeing people doing "destination dining" 4 and more times in a week, to MJ's, El Gaucho, Old Man & The Sea, Mirandi's, Flying Fishbone, and the like. Perhaps they do that once (twice at most) in the course of a week.

    Picking up the slack are the lower and mid-priced places that serve Dutch food (Bingo's, Linda's, PamPam, Cafe Rembrandt), and simple American food (like Pizza Bob's, which BTW was really tasty).

    Some new places like Cilo and Amadeus, with a lower price point, but plenty of atmosphere, are also catching on quickly.
