“This is a place I go to for any special occasion.. actually, who am I kidding; we go whenever we crave some amazing fresh fish. The beautiful restaurant is located in the heart of down town. About a 15 minute walk or fast car ride from Across The Beach. I say beautiful because the interior design of the restaurant is walls plastered with driftwood of the northern side of Aruba collected by the owners! The food is very local and exquisite. Fresh fish everyday. I love it, definitely my go to restaurant..”
