    it is a very short walk to the Texas D Brazil from the Occidental.
    5 or 10 minutes

    TDB and Amazonia both get good reviews and the common denominator is
    "too much food"

    It's basically the same restaurant as in the states and it is very walkable from the Occidental- just across the road a bit. IMO there are lots of more interesting places to eat in Aruba and you can always go there when you get back home...by that's just my opinion.

    Was not real fond of TDB two years ago. We travel down to Yemanja Wood Fired Grill for our steak dinner. Downtown behind Renaissance.
    Next Aruba trip in

    We got the buy one get one free bday coupon for Texas de brazil. Looking forward to eating at other restaurants as well. We follow a paleo diet aka caveman diet so we are limited where we can eat. I'm already guessing we will be tempted to stray off course a bit.

    We eat only what cave people would have eaten. meats, veggies, nuts, berries. No sugar, no grains, no carbs, no dairy etc... just food in it's natural state & unprocessed. I promise we are not weirdos We CrossFit and the paleo lifestyle is one that a lot of crossfit athletes follow

    We have made reservations at Texas, Passions on the beach & Madame Janette. That way we have a few nights to be spontaneous. I hope we have a lot of other restaurants to choose from without having made reservations.

    i have got to get "out of my cave" more often.
    i had never heard of it.
    so it is a high protein, good carb all natural diet.
    what about fish and eggs and fruit from trees....apples, oranges etc ?

    i have no doubt that you are not weirdos. hahaha you are too funny.

    Oh yes all kinds of fruit, and seafood and eggs! (preferably non farm raised seafood and grassfed beefs, and free-range chicken). Lots of folks with gluten sensitivity issues (celiac disease) find a lot of relief with this diet. We just do it to keep healthy and to keep the pounds off
    This is a funny video explaining it
