    Traveling to Aruba for our 25th wedding anniversary

    My husband and I will be traveling to Aruba from April 29th- May 6th to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We will be staying at Casa Del Mar in a 2 bedroom unit.

    My husband is an avid deep sea fisherman and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a fishing charter?

    Also, I would love to celebrate our anniversary at a romantic restaurant on the beach. My husband isn't into tiny gourmet portions so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks in advance!!!

    Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your 25th in Aruba, you picked a perfect place to celebrate. I can't really help you with either of your questions as the only place on the beach we have dined at had smaller portions.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum!

    happy anniversary coming up.

    here are some fishing boats http://www.aruba.com/things-to-do/fishing-aruba

    and teaser and hats off are 2 that i have heard real good things about.

    large portions and good food on the beach......barefoot has decent sized portions as does ricardos @ aruba beach club= but they are NOT on the beach but an open air restaurant with beach and sunset views.

    if you are willing to give up the beach setting and opt for garden style setting (very pretty) i would choose madame janette which not only has lovely presentation, but delicious and huge portions.

    many say passions for delicious food on the beach, but i do not know the portion size. we were there years ago, disappointed and have not gone back.

    Cowboy Ribeye at "Flying Fishbone". Texas big and delicious. Beautiful setting.

    We didn't like Madame Jannette's and wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion.

    Congratulations & Welcome to the Aruba.com Community Forum!

    Madame Janette does have huge portions, but is not on the beach. Check out Flying Fishbone or Passions.
