    Trying to plan 30th Birthday dinner

    Another request for help....

    The purpose of our trip is not only to explore Aruba for the first time, but also to celebrate my 30th birthday. My husband, my 19 month old son and myself are staying at the Renaissance. I'm not sure how large the group will be, my friends are meeting us in Aruba, and my parents and sister say they "might" join us. So far, it's 5 of us. I would like to have a nice dinner, maybe on the beach or something memorable. Any suggestions?

    old man and the sea has a private "island" or a secluded section off the main beach front area for dining. from what i remember, i believe it only held 4 seats. but the scenery from there looked quite amazing - it faces the sunset.

    We went to Passions on the beach for our 10th anniversary last summer and loved it. I know that have tables for large groups. If you want to go there, have your hotel concierge make the reservations for you.

    While everyone raves about Passions, my family did not have a great experience ...sorry to say. We were a large party and that might have thrown them off. Dinner slow, bathroom way to far, band to loud, dinner just ok.

    2 other options for you
    (well there are really MANY options)

    Pam Pam restaurant is an interesting, out of the way delightful and outdoor restaurant. It is good, not pricey and is very appropriate for your toddler and a large or small group.

    Tulip is similar to Pam Pam except it is a bit more expensive, but still not pricey.

    My husband and I love both places.
    They have ambiance.
    They are comfortable.
    The food is good as is the sangria...omgosh!

    Thank you so much for the suggestions. I try not to dine "romantic" when I have my son with me. Only because he might be the only kid and he's not always well behaved. I get tired of the "looks" when he is a bit too loud. Wouldn't want to ruin someone's well-planned romantic evening.
