    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.
    Hi Krissys2745,

    I agree with tjsbeer, give Papillon a try.

    I see that Tueday appears to be "protein day". May I suggest El Gaucho. A six day vacation in Aruba means you'll be using up a lot of protein; what with all that laying on the beach, swimming, shopping, eating , drinking and playing in the casinos. Of course that protein needs to be replaced. To put it bluntly, El Gaucho's 16oz Gaucho steak is the best-tasting source of protein on the planet, period. You can thank me later.

    Have a great time.

    I hesitate to mention Yemanja because it is my favorite and I don't want it to get too crowded! But it is wonderful!! I wouldn't miss it.

    The best chef on the island IMHO. While M. Jennette's has several fine dishes it is not the same experience or meal Barefoots offers.

    And I would suggest you substitute Passions for Flying Fishbone. It's a better "feet in the sand" dining experience and Streaming Eagle/Flying Fishbone are (I assume they still are anyway) the same ownership.

    Best seafood on the island is Wacky Wahoos; again IMHO.
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".

    I would add Amuse Bistro to your list. French inspired food done with an Aruban flare . . . a must experience dinner. Michael

    palm beach, eagle beach, any happy hour
    We loved Amuse Bistro, especially the option of small plate sizes for almost all of their entrees. This gives you a chance to sample so many of their yummy dishes!

    El Gaucho - a local Argentina steak restaurant. You won't be disappointed I promise, I have never eaten better steak and have lived in Texas my whole life!

    Great choices!!
    Only one that I might change is Flying Fishbone to Passions. Flying Fishbone is quite a drive and the last couple times has been very crowded.
    I recently tried to make reservations for Carte Blanche for the end of February and they are booked with only a few days remaining for March...
    We plan on trying Barefoot this year as the reviews have all been very positive.
    Bon appetit!

    I have to agree - Yemanja has climbed to the top of our list and we go several times during our visit. Fabulous food!

    Eagle Beach, Baby Beach, Arashi Beach Tierra Del Sol golf course
    I would drop Ruths Chris and go to El Gaucho. I can go to RCs here if I want. El Gauchos is an experience for steak lovers.
