This will be our 2nd time to Aruba! First time we were guest at the Surf Club, now we are owners! So we are thinking of ways to tighten our belts this time, but still enjoy the experience. Looking for restaurants that are not wallet busters! We had some culinary experience last time but it was expensive, but have no regrets. We also plan to cook in more this time.... Any advice?

Michele we too are owners at surf Club this is our 2nd year as owner but have been to Aruba for 4 years. We have dinner out a few times mostly eat breakfast home and this year will try to eat more lunches home also. We cooked out alot last year we had a lot of fun doing that and met really nice people grilling. Don't you just love the Surf Club?? When will arrive this year??

I really wish I could remember the name of this restaurant, but me and my friend ate fresh lobster and steak off a hot brick, you had the cook the food yourself. It was right by the Holliday Inn, and the price wasn't bad at all.
