    Proposed Restaurant List (first time Aruba visitors!)

    We are very excited to be traveling to Aruba on our honeymoon very soon!!

    I have been doing research into restaurants for dinner and I wanted to share a draft of my current list of selections. Any comments would be greatly appreciated! Our first meal will be on a Sunday...

    Sunday:
    Gostoso (made reservation via email, but haven't heard back...should I call)??

    Monday:
    Passions (I have heard food isn't the best, but sunset is amazing)??

    Tuesday:
    Wacky Wahoos

    Wednesday (shooting for something more informal here):
    Bugaloe Beach Bar & Grill

    Thursday (haven't made a firm selection, but considering...):
    Marina Pirata or Papiamento or Fish and More

    Friday:
    Marandi

    Since we are staying at Bucuti Beach; have I chosen spots that will be easy to get to from the hotel? Also, I haven't found many places for lunches yet, but I figured I wouldn't try too hard to plan that ahead of time.

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated!!

    Wednesday (shooting for something more informal here):
    Bugaloe Beach Bar & Grill

    This is a fabulous place to just relax, enjoy the sunset and have a decent, reasonably priced meal in an informal atmosphere. My favorite place on earth!!

    If you are in for entertainment while dining, go there Tuesday night instead; live music from 5-8 pm. Wednesdays they have free latino dance lessons..
