Despite the friendly staff we were not very pleased.
The food was really dramatic.
(over-grilled, dry and far too salty) Hopefully the staff of the kitchen had a off-day. The quality of the food was not in relation with the athmosphere and the very dedicated serving staff.
It was really good service we were financially compensated.
We hope to have a next time a better experience.

Got there in time for the sunset. My husband got some type of oyster soup and said that it was lousy. For our main meal we got grouper and the breaded squid and both were excellent. No desert this evening. We know that service is on island time but the service here was slower than island time. We were there over 2 hours and they weren't crowded Otherwise service was good.

Our family ate here a few nights ago and it was wonderful! The view and sunsets were amazing!!!! Better then any beach side sunset! Without the sand! The sky was an amazing shade of pinks orange and blues unreal! We heard about Marina from a family here at our resort and they raved about it! So we knew we had to try it! We loved it! It is the most beautiful quaint lil find! It is a good drive but definitely worth it! The staff were amazing, the food wonderful And experience remarkable! Nothing like it on the island! Wish we had found it 11 years ago when we first started coming but Know it will be a regular stop every year hints: get directions (they're flyer has a map on the back) and they're closed on Tuesday's!

MARINA PIRATA continues to impress us. It may not be fine eating but it is very good food at very reasonable prices with a fine setting and some of the most friendly staff that can be found in ARUBA. It is a relaxing delight to eat here and enjoy everything about you including the people. We highly recommend the place and we don't think that you will be disappointed if you do go. Don't go with expectation of getting a five star meal, go with the expectation of gettting a very good meal done with a bit of ARUBAN flare and a lot of ARUBAN love and caring. Sit back and enjoy the meal and the ambiance and a good time will be yours. If you want more, then strike up a conversation with the owner and you will be entertained beyond your dreams - he is a very passionate advocate of country and is very candid and outspoken about it and the history he has seen and participated in over the past years. It all makes for a fascinating perspective of things and it is something that every visitor to ARUBA should know. GO and enjoy the food, the setting, the people, and everything else about this place. DO NOT be discouraged by the cost of a taxi ride to this place if needed - it is well worth the visit.

We went to this restaurant based on previous reviews. We are so glad we did, one of our favorite restaurants we went to and definitely will go again! I had Creole Grouper, just scrumptious and my husband had the beer battered Baracuda which he just loved! We are so glad we went here and definitely will again!

Sheila, Carlos & Santiago are truly one of the reasons we keep coming back to Marina Pirata.They are very friendly and accomodating. We always enjoy the food and look forward to also enjoying the ambiance of your restaurant. We come for six weeks every year and eat at over 25 restaurants, a few restaurants we go too more than once and yours is always at the top of this list. Keep up the good work and we look forward to dining with you again on the 21st of February.

what a wonderful restaurant! Good and relaxed atmosphere, very good service by the friendly staff, good food (mostly fish) and last but not least: a super location,on the seaside. We found this restaurant better than some of the top 10 restaurants: authentic and local.
