In no particular order:

Driftwood

Screaming Eagle

Amuse Bistro

Flying Fishbone

Barefood

Madame Janette

Passions

Azul

Papiamento

Blossoms

You will not get the same list from any two people. Here is mine:

Barefoot

Madame Janette

Papiamento

Screaminjg Eagle

I have been to all of these plus Driftwood. Cannot comment on the others.

Thanks for the quick responses. Is there one in particular I should save for my birthday dinner?

Tony's absolutely correct about not receiving the same list from this group. To add to your confusion... :)

Amuse Bistro would be my only must-do from that list. Although, I have heard wonderful things about Barefoot (yet to try).

My must-do's always include:

Wacky Wahoo's

Yemanja

Simply Fish (at the Marriott Resort)

Marandi

Sunset Grille

We went to Barefoot for my husband's birthday, loved it. If you let them know ahead of time you are celebrating, they will do something nice. They gave us 2 glasses of champagne.

We didn't get to Amuse Bistro this last trip, nor did we make it to Marandi. The list grows every year which means I have to keep going back to try all these places :)

Thanks! Marandi is on my list too, but I hear its further away and I doubt we'll rent a car this trip.

My wife and I went to Footprints on the beach at the Hyatt for our wedding anniversary. They set up tables under 5 of the palapa's and there is only one seating, so it's your's for the night. You get a four course meal that you pick from the menu.

My favorite "special occasion" restaurant is Passions. If you do go, let them know it's your birthday when making reservations.

So far, out of 5 replies, Barefoot has been mentioned 3 times. Amy almost proved me wrong by posting 3 out 4 in agreement with my list. Obviously, she has good taste. LOL. (pun intended?) If you don't rent a car, Marandi is a pretty expensive taxi ride.

I would not bother with Flying Fishbone (too far away) or Marandis (IMO, really gone downhill and also expensive cab fare).

Agree with Passions for your B-day.
