    Romantic Dinner Recommendations?!?!

    I will be heading back to Aruba in June, this will be my 6th trip and last year we got married on the island. I am pretty familiar with all of the restaurants. We have been to flying fishbone, madame Jeanettes, and two fools just to name a few. My husband and I really want to eat somewhere special for our anniversary. We are looking fro something unique, amazing food and great service. Any suggestions for something a little off the beaten path but where the food is amazing?!?

    Looking forward to hearing everyone's recommendations!

    Tanks!!!!

    I'd recommend "Kitchen Table", "Carte Blanche" or "Wilhelmina's". All fit your criteria.

    We loved Ruinas del mar at the Hyatt for a nice romantic dinner.

    How important is the ambiance? A lot of our suggestions can be a little on the "loud" side... not sure everyone would characterize them as "romantic"...?

    If you're looking for something more romantic and quiet, on the beach with brilliant food and service, I'd recommend "Elements" at Bucuti and Tara.

    We've been to pretty much all of them at one time or another. Our favorite though is still Passions for amazing romantic ambiance and good food.

    Thank you everyone for the recommendations! I think we have settled on Barefoot after looking at their menu and realizing it is one of the few beach restaurants that is not right there in the high rise area. For those of you that have been any must try items there... the vanilla bean scallops caught my eye.
