    Restaurant for Feb

    Here is my restaurant hopes for Feb. I have not been to Aruba in Feb. and was wondering if I need reservations for these listed below. Or if anyone has thoughts on these restaurants. It has been 3 years since I have been to Aruba, was there 8 years in a row prior to that. Miss it so much!
    I would also love suggestions for a little less expensive places. Smokey Joes used to great but last time I was not impressed.


    Madame Jeannette
    El Gaucho
    Mirandi-has the restaurant changed? Now Arubaville
    Barefoot

    We go in Feb every year. We make reservations for every restaurant. They are extremely busy. Barneys is great and is moderately priced, along with Matthews. If you are staying in Eagle Beach area, you might want to visit Water's Edge at Costa Linda if you are in the mood for a burger. We usually eat there once or twice. They serve burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, etc. for $15.00 at night. They used to charge only $8.00 for these at night, but increased the price last year. We always eat pizza at least once on our trip, which saves some cash. Our favorite restaurants are Barefoot, Chalet Suisse, and Azzurro. I usually make reservations in early Jan. for Feb. Have fun!

    The original Marandi location is now Barefoot. Marandi moved to its second location just past the airport (going south). It has since closed and is now Arubaville. We rarely make reservations (or make them the same afternoon for dinner that evening) but we always go in low season so walk-ins are easy at that time. February will be busy so I would make reservations if/when you can if you have a specific date/time in mind for dinner.

    I would definitely go to Quenta del Carmen instead of Madame Janette's. It is wonderful and similar. Opened in Dec. 2014. Another favorite of our's is Amuse by the Playa Linda. For Italian and in Eagle Beach area is Elliotti's (very reasonable) by the Costa Linda and their food is excellent. There is live music on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Another restaurant to consider is Zuzuroh (reasonable) which is just behind the Screaming Eagle Restaurant. We have not yet made it there but the reviews are great. It is Greek/Italian. Another very reasonable place we always visit is Casa Tua in Palm Beach. Excellent food and pizza. Utilize trip advisor to see what the reviews are for the restaurants.

    All restaurants are a matter of preference by each person and hard to know what others would enjoy.

    Forgot to add Hostario da' Vittorio in Palm Beach. Inside or outside eating and the food is excellent.
