Barefoot-Top Notch Beautiful Setting, highly recommend! We had mustard soup-it was incredible. The mango grouper-and the seafood trio. Both excellent.
Madame Janette- Loved it, setting is so pretty at night with the lights strung all around. The Viking steak-20oz bone in rib eye was so delish. I enjoyed the Surf and Turf-Lobster tail/shrimp/filet. YUMMY!!
We enjoyed it so much we went back for our anniversary a few nights later. Second dinner was even better, I ordered sea bass that was over wasabi mashed, it was really good, my hubby ordered rack of lamb, it was the best lamb either of us had ever had. wow! For our anniversary they brought us a complimentary mousse dessert with happy anniversary written on the plate. Amazing!
Dinner while with Kukoo Kunucu-I was not expecting much to be honest, it was really good. Ribs/Chicken Kabob, rice, salad. The bus was so fun-trip report will have more info.
While on the plane on our way down to Aruba, we were talking to Joe (sitting next to us). He mentioned his favorite meal is at Azzurro. We gave it a try, it was ok. We are both meat eaters, and just ordered the wheel of cheese pasta for two, Joe's recommendation. The setting was very pretty and we had an amazing sunset that night, but the food was just ok for us. Nothing wrong with it, we should of known that it was vegetarian and ordered something different, but it was not the chef's fault. We may try again, and order something different.
We also enjoyed Arubaville, it was a nice setting over by the airport. Food was good, not great. It would be fun place to stop for a drink. There was not enough staff, they were trying, but a large group came in after we were there for a few and it almost seemed like they forgot about us. Our drinks took 30 minutes. I think there was 1 bartender, 2 servers. and about 30 customers. We had tapas-7 of them but most of the fish tapas were overdone and dry. The cerviche (sp) was over powered with cilantro and lime. The soup, fish bisque? Was good and had a lot of fish it in. Fun place to watch planes landing. It was also a bummer that the dump/I think was burning and the smoke was going right over the beautiful sunset.
Our last dinner, we had heard so many great reviews for Quinta Del Carmen. The setting is beautiful and the start of our dinner was amazing-we shared a bowl of Corn/Crab Chowder-I wish I would of had my own full bowl-it was so good. Unfortunately, that's where it ended. The flies were terrible-all over my food, they needed to spray or something it was really bad-I couldn't even eat because they were landing on my food and me the whole meal. I ordered the paella-it tasted good what I could eat of it, however there was a dead fly underneath my rice, gross. The waitress seen me struggling and swatting at them and just smiled at me. We also ordered the pork chop. It was explained to us that it is not a chop but tenderloin, but it really was a large chuck of ham with a glaze. Ham shouldn't be $40.00 and we told the waitress that but she just smiled again. We asked that she tell the chef that they need to change the menu because it is NOT a chop or pork tenderloin. We paid, left a decent tip and left. The waitress followed us out with my paella in a to go container. We didn't want it, said no thank you. So disappointed as there as so many great places to eat.
Can not wait to get back for our second trip
