    Waters Edge
    Arawak Plaza (Fishes and More / Casa Tua)

    Our Shellfish Allergy and no pork eliminates some other fine places for us.

    Welcome to the forum.... glad you joined us. Waters Edge we hit before sundown and the flies were horrible.... until the sun went down. Food was good. Elements is great for sunset dining. Love the vibe for Arawak Plaza and may well get to Tango this trip.

    We love to eat outdoors while on vacation. Many times in Florida ( especially the Keys ) we’d dine outside. We always traveled Sept/Oct so the weather wasn’t too hot. Aruba has so many great places to eat outside. We avoid the mostly seafood places since I have a shellfish allergy. Then there’s the mango and strawberry allergies so I have to be careful with sauces and desserts. A few years ago there were 8 of us dining at Blossom’s for hibachi. There were 3 of us with a shellfish allergy and they had forgotten about it and put shrimp and lobster on the grill with the chicken and steak. Someone spoke up and they apologized and took everything off and cleaned the grill. We were very impressed the care they took to make it right. Maybe they’ll make our list this trip.

    We have not been in there in over a decade.
    Bavaria does have outdoor dining. We've never dined inside there.

    I couldn’t agree with you more about Chalet Suisse. A brilliant idea to remove roof. Lol. That place has great food but so tired looking!

    The outdoor dining thing just got a glitch! Last night my lovely Patti decided she wanted to dine at El Gaucho...... OMG, I thought I was done with that place... Reservation made and I've ordered extra mariachi visits just to torment her!
