    Sunset dining - Your Top 3?

    Curious to hear everyone's top 3 favorite spots for sunset view dining on the beach!

    Heading back down in June, but its been several trips since we dined at sunset in the sand. I've always liked Flying Fishbone, but it's just too far away from the Surf Club. Simply Fish is fine, just not worth the inflated prices IMO. Haven't been to Passions or Barefoot in a few years. Never been to Pinchos. What are some other favorites?

    Any Aruba beach...
    Favorites are those already mentioned

    Passions and Barefoot are our favorites. Pinchos was not to our liking personally though many here love it.

    With the exception of the restaurant at Boca Prins, any restaurant in Aruba which is a sunset dinner will also be on the beach/water.

    Beachside/waterside dining

    The Hyatt
    Footprints Beach Grill
    Celebrate another perfect day in paradise with an unforgettable dinner at Footprints. This exclusive restaurant – only five tables are available each evening - offers fine dining while you wiggle your toes in the soft white sand. Enjoy the sounds of the sea as the attentive staff serves a delicious four-course dinner, featuring their renowned grilled entrees with your choice of beef, ribs, fresh seafood and more. Finish a delightful evening with a tempting dessert and your favorite cocktail or wine from the hotel’s extensive selection.
    Hours: Open daily, 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

    Pampered in Paradise

    Imagine dining in your own private paradise, with the sea at your feet, tiki torches creating a glow on the sand and a private butler to see to your every need. Often imitated, but never quite the same, this incomparable romantic event will charm you from the moment you are escorted to your private tent on the beach. The name truly says it all - there is no other dining extravaganza to compare to our own Pampered in Paradise. Relish the flavors of your perfectly prepared four-course meal, served in a leisurely, unobtrusive manner that allows you to relax, enjoy each bite, and create memories to cherish for a lifetime.

    Sunset Service
    There's no better way to start your evening than reclining in teak Adirondack chairs overlooking the beach, nibbling on gourmet hors d'oeuvres and sipping a glass of your favorite wine. Consider this your own private happy hour, complete with a tuxedo-clad waiter to take care of every detail. Select your menu from an enticing selection of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, wines, champagnes, chocolate dipped strawberries, or even a Monte Cristo #2 Cigar.

    Sunset Service is located on the beach in front of the Palms restaurant. Proper attire: Black Tie to Black Bikini, whichever you prefer!

    The Westin
    With sugary sand beaches and the golden glow of a sunset as backdrop, Azull isn’t just a restaurant; it's an epicurean delight located in the most romantic setting. Tiki torches, cooling breezes and intimate beachfront tables complete this intimate experience. Master chefs prepare a blissful four-course dinner using superb ingredients to be shared with a loved one.

    Please note we offer only one seating at 6:15 PM to not miss the sunset experience.

    Zeerover for me. Sitting on the dock kicking back cold chills, chatting with the other hanger-ons and sharing laughs with Kat and the kids?
