We toasted to our last night of our honeymoon at the most-sought-after restaurant in Aruba, the Flying Fishbone. Reservations must be made prior to or immediately after arriving to assure a dinner seating. Reservations are booked weeks in advance. All hotels and resorts can assist with making reservations for you.
We ate by the water's edge. We kicked off our sandals and feasted on lobster tails, accompanied by a bottle of wine. It is exquisite dining that is highly recommended by anyone who has visited Aruba. It is best at sunset, even though we had 8pm reservations. We gazed up at the night sky and could actually see Venezuela in the far distance because it was such a clear night.
We had taken a taxi to the restaurant, which also waited for us until we were done with dinner. It is a rather long distance from the resort area (30 minutes without traffic) but definitely worth the fare and travel time. It was worth holding out all week to experience the fine feast, even though it was our most expensive meal. I would recommend this fine restaurant to anyone visiting the island, but be sure to make reservations prior to arriving or as soon as you arrive.
