Aruba

Just got back and wanted to update on some restaurants. We stayed at the Hyatt and ate twice at their Las Ruinas Del Mar which had excellent food, especially their grass fed steaks. We also ate at Piccolo, Japengo and the Palms there and you really can't go wrong. Other than that we went to the Aqua Grill which has terrific seafood, I highly recommend. In Oranjestad we went to a quaint place which specializes in Aruban food The Old Fisherman (it's very close to the bus station) - the atmosphere was perhaps a little better than the food. We ate keshi yena, an Aruban specialty, at Iguano Joe's which is a tourist trap catering to people from the cruise ships but it has decent food. All in all, the diversity and quality of food and restaurants in Aruba is amazing! It's definitely a foodie destination.
