    Single Diners Questions

    I travel by myself. I love eating out. I usually order two appetizers and a cocktail. (Sometimes a dessert as well!) I try to go early in the evening and sit as a single.

    These are some the restaurants I am looking at

    Las Ramblas
    Terrazza Italiana
    Yemanja
    Que Pasa for Brunch-small plates of their regular menu

    Any dishes or drinks I should not miss.

    Thanks
    Deb

    Of your list, we have only been to Yemanja. I really like their stuffed pork tenderloin and love to end the meal with a Snickertini. Usually I’m too full for dessert so this drink is the perfect solution.

    I enjoy the grouper salad at Bugaloe's and enjoy a drink from the pier bar. Also West Deck downtown.

    I’ve been solo a couple times last year and I enjoyed Bingo. They have small and large plates. As far as appetizers, I’ve had coconut shrimp, mushrooms fondue, carpaccio, and shrimp escargot. All very good.

    We love Las Ramblas. Really only have a dinner there, great Sea bass and grouper. Their Lobster bisque soup is excellent and also escargot.

    My absolute favorite app in Aruba is at Yemanja. It is a warm filo dough goat cheese app topped with honey over greens. It is divine! I’ve sent so many people there for it. Never disappoints!

    I've been to the first 3 on the list as a solo diner. Las Ramblas, love the bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer. I love their desserts which you have to ask as the menu changes. Terrazza, not sure if they are big on apps but they have a nice 2 hour happy hour 2 for 1 at certain times and on Thursday they have a DJ so it depends if you like a lively dinner or quiet. You can order a pizza and some wine. Yamanja they have a few good apps. I never ate dessert per se but ordered the Expresso Martini as my dessert. They have 2 versions of that drink a creamy one which includes baileys irish cream and a regular one.
