    We are the same way when it comes to food, service and atmosphere. But as we keep going to our favorite place in the world, we are trying to mix it up a bit and hit some new ones. Barefoot seems to come up alot.

    as we have been getting closer to our trip, when i prepare a meal here at home, i double up and freeze leftover.....mark container what it is and set in a section of our freezer earmarked for eating in aruba. yes the meals still are frozen when we arrive and i pop them right in the freezer at the timeshare.

    We stay at an AI but still like to go off resort. One good way of trying a number of different spots is doing a late afternoon crawl with a drink an appetizer or just a drink. One one of our earliest trips we tried the Paddock, Cubas Cookin, Que Pasa and CasaTua all in one afternoon. Every place was a different experience. We met a lot of nice people and had a 4 course meal while visiting 4 different restaurants.

    I love planning a restaurant list and reading about other peoples list!

    However, I keep changing it!

    The first list I came up with 20 restaurants but I only have 7 nights...

    My usual 3 are:

    Cubas Cooking.
    MJ
    Chalet Suisee

    My 2 cheap/casual eats night are usually either Pizza Bob, Bugaloe Grill, Busters, Islander Grill or Smokey Joes..

    I really love Chalet Suise and MJs and can easily see myself going twice..

    I was thinking about trying Pinchos but I read a lot of mix reviews on trip advisor..

    LG Smith I always wanted to try. I was looking at their website menu the other day..

    Barefoot and Wacky Wahoo are our new restaurants for this trip. We will also have Iguana Cantina as our little tradition. And of course I can't forget Scott's Brats for a couple breakfasts and lunches. Salt and Pepper may be on the list if we have luck on our fishing trip, since I heard they will prepare it for you. Other than that I am resisting the urge to plan out every night. Pinchos, Que Pasa, Yemanji, and Simply fish are on the maybe list.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Our best overall dining experience in Aruba was at Barefoot. Hope you find some time for it.

    Papiamento was our first restaurant in Aruba. Loved it. They have some nice spicy options (but plenty of choices in case you're not into spicy food).

    All the best from Brazil

    We roll with about 4-5 families on each trip. There are about 15-20 of us on each trip. So we try to go to places that can accommodate a large group.

    Here's our line up:


    Saturday Barney's
    Sunday Smokey Joes
    Monday El Gaucho
    Tuesday Bar Crawl - eat and drink at all the bars on the beach
    Wednesday Pizza Bob's
    Thursday Sole Mar
    Friday OPEN


    This has been the itinerary for the last 5 years, (with the exception of Barney's) same place, same night.
