    Marina Pirata is one of our favorite restaurants. Initially when we first went there, we didn't have a very good experience and didn't think we'd ever try it again. Thankfully, we gave it another chance and I'm so glad we did. We've been going back ever since. Haven't been to Flying Fishbone in recent years. Our daughter reported that the sand fleas were so bad when she went that we decided it wasn't worth the drive or the expense to get eaten alive. I remember the food being good though. I don't think most of the menu at Marina Pirata is fried food. And, the fish certainly is fresh and you can have it prepared several different ways. I would not hesitate to recommend Marina Pirata to anyone. In fact, we are taking friends that have never been to Aruba there in just a couple weeks. I love it for the food AND the local flavor.

I would figure it'd be a fun place for a birthday too especially with the mariachis there. Anyhow, how do you native Arubans feel about El Gaucho? Is it as good as I thought or a tourist trap? If there's better steak on the island, we'd DEFINITELY want to know about it!!! Thanks in advance and we'll see you soon!
