    Since we have the car - I think we'll try the Old Man. We have 2 nights that we plan on eating out - should we go to MJ on the other night??

    Thanks!!
    If you have a car for two days then go to Mirandi's as it is also far. MJ is great but cheaper by taxi than the other two.

    Yes they do but make sure it is the correct website as someone "stole" their first website. It is a wonderful place. It is just past the airport and when you are driving you will wonder where the heck you are! Signage isn't amazing but you will find it. You drive up to this parking lot and there are stairs that go down to this huge pier overlooking the water with little lights all around.

    I am sure lisa or liz with have the correct website.

    The old web site http://www.marandiaruba.com/

    Advance reservations are recommended.

    We went to Passions last night, it was our first time there. We really enjoyed it. We didn't have reservations, stopped there at 5:30, sunset was arounf 6:15. They seated us right away. The service was excellent and so was the food. I asked for my first grilled instead of pan fried and they had no problem with that. Overall very romantic, especially once the stars are out. We have been to Old Man and the Sea on our last trip and did enjoy it. We loved the setting, privacy and ambiance. The food was so so. They have way fewer tables than Flying Fishbones, you don't feel squished.

    There are too many choices ~ I guess we'll just have to go back to Aruba again!!

    So, we have the car for 2 nights - which means 2 nights we will eat out - places that are far from the Surf Club. If they are close - we could get a taxi.

    Now I'm thinking Marandi's & Old Man.

    Where is Passions again?

    Passions is located on Eagle Beach at Amsterdam Manor. You could take a taxi or the bus (the bus stop is right at Amsterdam Manor) - from the Marriott it's only about 5-7 minutes away.

    My experience at Fishbone was okay, not amazing. I started with a lobster bisque, which i thought was thin, and could have used a hint of sherry (or if there was any at all, more).

    Then I had their signature shrimp shii-taki (their spelling) and blue cheese casserole. I found the blue cheese sauce runny and not as intense as I had hoped. I later had a much better version of the dish at TASTE OF BELGIUM in the Passeo Hernencia mall (although the chef has changed a few times since then, and I can't comment on it currently).

    Tables were very close together, and if there are children getting ancy, screaming, or running around on the sand between the tables (as there were that night), that's just your bad luck.

    Having said that, it's a beautiful place to see the sunset, but going any time but "sunset" all the way to Savenetta would be quite a trip for food that is equalled and beaten much closer to Eagle/Palm Beach.
