This restaurant has closed. It is now Arubaville! Nothing more to say. I miss Marndi, but Arubaville is a fun replacement. Give Arubaville a try when you are in Aruba. Enjoy!!

When we went it was not busy at all but they do recommend reservations. The food was great and the atmosphere is wonderful. You eat on a dock over the water with lighting that creates a beautiful ambiance. Perfect for date night!

This restaurant is quite off the beaten path, and costs quite a bit for the cab fare. If you are looking for a quiet dining experience, with a great view of the sunset, and a delicious meal - then it is 100% worth the price!!

Book a table at sunset. The food is creative, the staff friendly, and the flavors are as varied as the colors in the sunset sky.

Marandi is located near the airport, on a pier, overlooking a beautiful bay and the perfect spot for a romantic sunset dinner. Driving to this location, there are a few signs but it is tricky driving through a residential neighborhood. There is ample parking and...More
