    I love the chicken wings there AND the fries with the curry ketchup.
    If you try that ketchup and love it, it can be found at SuperFoods.

    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM

    Thank you. We are enjoying every minute here. Feels like we can finally relax after being cooped up for 18+ months. Did our tests at Palm Beach Plaza (was a ghost town) this morning and already have the negative tests back. The Aruba health app made things easy.
    Cafe 080 was great! I had the Chicken Schnitzel, my son had Flammkuchen and my husband had fish and chips. Everything was super tasty. Curry Ketchup! I am German so that stuff runs in my blood haha. I make it myself (mix Ketchup with Curry powder) back "home" in CA.
    Tonight we will try Blanco Faro. Menu looks great. Still not sure where to go on Thanksgiving. Not that we need a traditional spread but maybe something special since it's our last night.
    Went to Arashi beach today and parked a bit further up to get away from the crowd. Snagged a hut and were able to park right next to it. I think tomorrow we will do Eagle Beach again and spend the whole day. There is a guy renting umbrellas (we have beach chairs) for $25, right behind that little park/playground. We've been there last week and there were no crowds at all.
    Any other restaurant recommendations? TIA.

    When we’re looking for a special night, we head to Casa Nonna at the Ritz or Madame Janette. Love the atmosphere and food at both.

    On our to try list is the Sunset Grille at the Hilton. It gets great reviews on this forum.

    Sunset Grille is always out last night meal.... and always perfect food and service with a wonderful atmosphere.... sit outside! Pricy... but you do get what you pay for!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    For a special restaurant for your last night you might want to consider Elements or Madame Janette.
