Went on a Tuesday to get the all night early bird and were told the only specials were on the board-did not offer the early bird. Waited 1 hour & 45 minutes for our food which was OK and very small portions. We recieved plenty of water refills

We waited over an hour for our food. The food was fine, nothing special but there were not that many other parties and an hour wait was totally unacceptable. We received no explanation for the delay when everyone around else was getting their food pretty quickly.

From the outside Fishes and More is very basic and I would probably not have gone in without a recommendation. We had the best meal and best service here during our trip.

Family meal included Swordfish, Mahi-mahi, surf and turf and also Caesar salad and French onion soup. Everyone loved their meal! My son told the waiter to select surf portion of his dinner. Waiter selected the red snapper and my son loved it.

Very friendly staff went out of their way to make our meal enjoyable. Our waiter Sander was wonderful and he provided great service with a smile. No sign of “Island Service” aka slow service here.

It was noteworthy that Fishes and More didn’t add a service charge to the bill which every other Resturant had done. I suppose that when the establishment provides excellent services they don’t have to force a service charge on you.

Will definitely go back

The “beef tenderloin” on the Early Bird menu is not tenderloin at all. I’ve had many tenderloins over the years and this was an overly tenderized piece of chuck roast or something like that shaped like tenderloin. It was perfectly cooked to med rare but they were not fooling me. Sent it back and got the redfish blackened instead. That’s what I get for ordering beef on an island with no livestock. Lesson learned. Everything else was fine though.

Food was “ok”. The Snapper my wife sent back because it didn’t taste fresh (ie a little wrank) but the grouper was descent. The side dishes was absent seasoning so had to drop quite a bit salt and pepper on it. Service was minimal at best.

For 1 appetizer, 3 beers, and 2 entrees for $100, I’d rather spend an extra $50+ more to get something delicious.

We were outside, so the noise level was high but certainly not all due to the restaurant (and there's not much they can do about it.). It was a great meal - the Red Snapper was amazing, and you owe it to yourself to have the Apple Strudel for dessert!

Food was mediocre at best. Do not understand what all the rave reviews on this place were about. Wait staff not only took 20 min to give us menus but never circled back to see if we needed anything else once our food was served. The seafood was bland and the chicken part that someone in our party ordered was tough and chewy. Do not recommend this place for dining.

The last thing that you want on your island vacation is to go out at the seafood restaurant and be served frozen fish.

From the moment we arrived it was bad news! Hostess literally fought us about our confirmed open table reservation. Refused to give us a table outside while several tables were open. She was rude and was argumentative. Finally Sat us at the worst table in the place right near the entrance.
Waitress ignored us cleaning a table next to us. She apologized and was very nice but the damage was done.

Manager came by but tried to explain away, but did not accept our issues, and did not apologize.. lots of talking but no real action to solve the poor experience. She kind of tried to make things right, But failed. Gave us two free drinks for next visit. Really? Will not return. Total tourist trap!
Not returning, ever. So many other wonderful restaurants in Aruba.
We enjoyed and had fantastic dinners on our vacation in Aruba. PS the residents of Aruba are sweet, nice, and very friendly! Can’t wait to return to fab Aruba again!!

Tuna dishes were over seasoned with pepper and salt, spoiling them - this included the appetizer and the main course smoked tuna special. Other food was very good. Mixed fish dish was a real winner. Service was great and ambience was wonderful with live music the entire night right on the patio. Just ask them to tone down the pepper and salt. Lovely hostess as well.

Food was great but service was a bit slow. The shrimp appetizer was our favorite dish of the entire trip. Our visit was during high season and also on Christmas day so every restaurant on the island was busy. Can excuse the wait time given the crowds. We ordered a bottle of wine that arrived quickly but 1 ordered a cocktail that never arrived. Would not hesitate to return.
