This place was our absolute favorite during our entire stay in Aruba. The paella was amazing and had so much lobster, shrimp, and calamari in it that this dish could easily feed two! I like getting my money’s worth ($36). The paella was so tasty and flavorful. The 1/2 deep fried shrimp came with some scallops, plantanes, potato fries, and some fried polenta. Once again, a healthy portion for the price ($17). They also brought out some pickled onions which were a nice garnish that also help cleanse the pallet in-between bites. Jonathan, our waiter was delightful, friendly, and helpful. After we told others about our service with Jonathan, they too mentioned him by name and what a great job he does. This will absolutely be our first recommendation to anyone who ever comes to Aruba!

This place was recommended to us and it has many good reviews so we wanted to check it out. I ordered the fish and bf ordered the shrimp. Seafood was good. Side dishes were nothing special fries were cold or under cooked. The service was terrible our waiter was inattentive. I ordered a lemonade it was never brought out and the when we were billed for it had to ask that it be taken off. Could not get water refills. Another waiter filled in and helped our waiter out at the end and he was better but we were already disappointed. Prices were good $45 USD for 2, atmosphere was open air and nice. Bathrooms were gross.

What a nice surprise. You can't see from the outside what you will get. But you will get only fresh fish. Locally catched and fresh cooked, grilled or however you like it. It is just a local restaurant but absolutely grate. Nice friendly staff with a good sense of humour. Don't worry get in.

If visiting Aruba, and looking for local sea food, Red Fish is a great option. Food is really good and fresh! Staff is friendly and they have multiple options! The grill shrimp is a must with the white rice, cole slaw, fries and plantain! Bon Appetite!
