Diner Reviews
  • "Best restaurant at the Marriott locations in Aruba. All was excellent including the Arubian weather. The fish was the best during our 2-week stay."

  • "Excellent restaurant; always make it a point to dine at our favorite restaurant on the day of our arrival in Aruba."

  • "Simply fish is an outstanding restaurant for that intimate moment to share with a loved one. My wife and I enjoyed the view on the beach and we arrived around sunset (~6:30pm). From there, the food was amazing. We had the lemon grass shrimp kabobs which were heavenly. My wife had the grouper and I had the corvina. Both fish were cooked properly and we had the tirimisu for dessert. The staff was extremely delightful and we always had plenty of food and drink at our table. We will definitely be back again to celebrate our wedding anniversary in the future!!!"

  • "My family & I just returned from our vacation in Aruba. Prior to the trip, I reserved a dinner at Simply Fish because I thought that dinner on the beach was a great idea. The beach setting did not disappoint, however the food did. The prices are of course high (high end food items served to you on a Marriott resort beach), so I had high expectations for the food taste and quality. Unfortunately it didn't matter if we ordered steak or seafood. One of my sons ordered the surf and turf, while the steak was okay, the lobster tail was too chewy. My other son ordered the filet mignon, it had too much gristle (mystery bites) and was a little tough. Both my wife's mahi mahi and my encrusted grouper was simply okay, not much flavor."

  • "Thought this was a gimmicky beachside restaurant located at the Marriott but the main course was surprisingly good. Had their specialty, the macadamia crusted grouper, and it was light and meaty packed with loads of flavor. The appetizers and desserts weren't as notable. Had the mussels and calamari as starters and the coconut banana cake and they were average at best."

  • "We had so looked forward to our beach dinning but the food was an incredible disappointment. We tried the mahi mahi, Bronzino and halibut. We even took our waiters recommendations on how to have it prepared, but the fish was overlooked and bland. I don't know how a restaurant that specialized in fish could mess up so bad. Covered it in the mango salsa provided and just enjoyed the ocean instead. There are plenty better places to eat with your feet in the sand"

  • "What a beautiful experience-- eating a sunset dinner with toes in the sand on the beautiful beaches of Aruba! Does life get any better? The service was exceptional, the food was great and the setting was to die for. It's true I've eaten better meals, but I've never eaten in a better atmosphere. If you get a chance to go to Simply Fish, I would highly recommend it!"

  • "A most memorable evening with the wife. Food was fantastic (macadamian encrusted grouper) beautiful sunset beautiful live music (a guitar) and so relaxing. The waiter was slow but that didn't stop us from enjoying our evening"

  • "The sunset is a beautiful setting for dinner, the service is attentive and overall experience is great."

  • "Our server was awesome. He had recommendations for wine and which fish to eat. We took all of his recommendations and he was spot on. Must do on the Aruba to-do list"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It was a great location. We were there on the 4th of July and were able to see some fireworks and enjoy sitting on the beach while dining. The food was good, not the best we had on the island but still very good. Being able to sit on the beach was great though. Service was also very good."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "My new wife and I ate here our first night in Aruba for our Honeymoon. One of the main reasons we chose Aruba was for all the great dining scenes, and this place blew everything else out of the water. The steak/lobster/grouper were all perfect and melted in your mouth. A great view for the sun setting as well!"

  • "I am not sure why more beach resorts don't convert their beach to restaurants at night. Food is good, atmosphere among the best ever."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Simply Fish was delicious! I had the macadamia crusted grouper and it was fantastic. It also has a great atmosphere since you are right on the beach"

  • "On the beach at sunset. Food and service are outstanding."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We love coming here every year and unfortunatley this time the meal was far below average for my husband. The grouper for me was outstanding. My husband order wahoo....it was awful. The cut was too thin and was over cooked. Service was great (as usual). Not sure if this will make the cut for our next trip in Feb."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "This was perfect. Got the timing just right for sunset and it was beautiful. Service for main dish takes a little time, but the scenery and conversations with family and friends make up."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "This is good place for romantic, food is ok, too expensive, not attractive compare the price you pay $40 for a small piece of fish."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "It was our wedding anniversary. The food was perfect, the waiters and waitresses were perfect. The beach was perfect I couldn't have asked for anything more."

  • "It's right on the beach outside the Marriotts so an easy walk from adjacent hotels. Fantastic seafood and service. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food and service were just ok. We ordered the surf and turf which came with the filet mignon and the lobster tail. The lobster tail was over cooked and a little rubbery. The sides were also just sub par. Overall, I think this is a nice romantic option, but perhaps try one of the fish blackened versus the lobster."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Can't beat the sunset dining experience at this location. As part of Marriott, makes it even better as the service is outstanding. Fine dining with your feet in the sand is incredible."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We were on vacation from New York City, after moving from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Neither of us are strangers to excellent seafood. Simply Fish was recommended to us by someone, I unfortunately cannot recall who, once we arrived in Aruba. We chose it over a rival seafood establishment and absolutely were. Not. Disappointed. It was the best fish we've ever had. It was the best overall dining experience we've ever had. Our entree was served right as the sky exploded with a famous Aruban sunset. All in all, a fantastic, fantastic experience, and one of the chief reasons why we would visit Aruba for a second time."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Although the scenic elements of this 'beach' restaurant are stunning like the rest along the strip, the food was severely lacking. My swordfish was dry and served with minuscule portions of chutney/salsa which were too small to compensate. Both vegetables served with the entree were completely cold at time served. Service was average to good, but this failed to pull the experience together. Simply Fish certainly will not inspire me to make a second visit."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "This was our 3rd time dining at Simply Fish. The food was cold, and when we let the person who brought out our food know, he brought gave us luke warm food in place of it. Our server Maurice was very unattentive the entire evening. He did offer us 2 glasses of wine to try to make up for the cold food...but other than the beautiful scenery/beach we felt that this was a disappointing dining experience. So dishearting since this was one of our favorite places to dine."

  • "A must if you are in Aruba. Time the reservation half hour before sunset. Great fish, and I don't like fish. Table is on the beach so you will get sand in your toes! "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "This literally does knock-your-socks-off because it is barefoot dining in the sand at its finest. Our sunset dinner here will never be forgotten as it was one of the best we have ever experienced. Our table was on the surf with the fiery sun setting behind the sailboats on the horizon. The macadamia nut grouper was the best I have ever eaten. Our waitstaff was wonderful, attending to us and yet allowing us to enjoy this peaceful, gorgeous setting. There are two places we would dine when we return to Aruba, and this is a must!"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Simply Fish was a perfect dinner to end our trip to Aruba, the server Oscar was excellent just the right amount of customer service without being overbearing. Pleasant and very much paid attention to the details of our meal. He thought my tuna might be undercooked for my taste brought it to my attention and had it grilled just slightly more. Ambience is very romantic however this beach is a bit busier than some of the other dine I the sand restaurants. "

  • "Everything was great!!!! Juan and Emilio were awesome and attending to all our needs. We enjoyed our personalized menu, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend for special occasions or just a romantic night out for a beach front dinner."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "This place is absolutely amazing. The view is incredible, with tables literally 15 feet from the water and feet in the sand. The food was outstanding and very innovative. Our wait staff was very attentive and personable. I have not had food this great in years. The entire experience is overwhelming and made me feel so blessed. I felt like I was dining like a rockstar! It's a great place to create memories. We will be back on our next vacation to Aruba. "

  • "This was by far my favorite dinner while I was in Aruba. The atmosphere was amazing, you sit right at the waters edge and watch the sunset! The food was excellent too! The macadamia nut grouper was fantastic! This is a restaurant is a "MUST"!"
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "Very romantic. Location right on the beach. Food was average for the price."

  • "We have eaten at Simply Fish every time we vacation in Aruba so I know what I'm talking about when I say the quality of the food has gone way down. I don't know if they were under staffed but our server was nice but inattentive. Our salad was never served and the entire experience was disappointing. Although the location is amazing and dining in the sand is what we do in Aruba, we won't be back."

  • "Marriott never disappoints it is a must when visiting Aruba especially for fish lovers. Seabass was amazing!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We always love going to this beach front restaurant on our first night in Aruba and watching the gorgeous sunset. However, they have changed their menu and the fish wasn't as fresh and flavorful as in the past. We'll still go on our next trip but I hope their chef reconsiders where his fish is being purchased and how it's being prepared."

  • "Our dinner could not have been better! Our table was just a few feet from the water. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious. Our dinner was absolutely perfect!"
