    Thumbs up

    Friday night dh and I were fortunate enough to dine at The Old Man and The Sea. It was absolutely the dining highlight of our trip over a two week period. The customer service was excellent. The staff, very humble and happy. The owners, John and his Mom made us feel like one of the family. Albert, the General Manager and Gabriel the talented american chef gave us tours of the restaurant and let us in on their future visions for the grounds. They invited us back Sat. night (last night) for their official Grand Opening by invitation only. About 300 people, flowing champagne, finger foods, a dancing band playing top 60s & 70s music. It was a grand reception and almost a full moon! They had installed a fire/fountain in the water along with blazing torches around the dock. John built a replica grand piano out on the floating dock as well...all on Sat. during day before the party. DH and I cannot recommend this place enough. Giovanni, our waiter is such a sweetheart and will treat you like a king and queen. Please, please give this new, refreshing restaurant a try. We took many pictures of the Grand Opening party and will post a few toward the end of the week when we return.

    Best directions - take the main road past the airport. You will eventually see a sign saying you have entered Savaneta. Take a right at the Subway sandwich shop. (If you pass the Valero gas station, you have gone past the turn) Drive past Brisas Del Mar restaurant and then enter a dirt road on the right. The Old Man and The Sea is at the end of this dirt drive.

    Enjoy...and tell them Fenner and Sue recommended them highly!

    Old Man and the Sea

    We ate at the Old Man and the Sea on our last night in Aruba (October 21) and loved it. This was by far the most romantic meal we have ever had...our table was a few feet from the water...the sunset was magnificent, the service impeccable and the food outstanding. We can't wait to go back!

    The only drawback was that we didn't rent a car for our trip and took a taxi from the Riu...which was $35 each way (it is on the other end of the island). It was well worth it and our taxi driver entertained us with island history the entire time.

    Pictures attached of the sunset from the restaurant...
