IMG_8844Imagine stepping into a dimly lit beach fantasy. White sand, art, flowers, trees draped with beautiful lights, tables with linens, and the ocean staring straight back at you. You sit down to have a fantastic meal on the beach, enjoy a nice crisp glass of wine, and listen to the waves crash 100 feet before you. This paradise is in Aruba; really just a quick plane ride away. 

IMG_8888Old Man & The Sea is a Restaurant and Luxury Bed & Breakfast. Not only can you dine here, but you can stay in one of the fabulous villas and really have a private, relaxing experience.

First the food: Osyth Henriquez is my favorite Chef and Artist on the Island. I met this talented woman last year in Aruba where she hosted me for dinner at Casa IMG_8922Alistaire, her first venture, and another successful private home she owns. Here at Old Man & The Sea I enjoyed Shrimp Caprese with Balsamic Glaze, Pineapple Curry Shrimp with Caribbean Rice. I loved the presentation and how it was stuffed into a pineapple, and the dish was out of this world, yum!

IMG_8921As the sun was fully set and the stars came out to play, I enjoyed some of Osyth’s Seafood Bouillabaisse! This was a fun Caribbean inspired dish filled with flavors of coconut, lime, and some spice!

IMG_8909For dessert, the Fried Oreos are a perfect share, as is the Banana’s Foster.

Now, about the properties: Both Casa Alistaire and Old Man Restaurant are down the street from each other, so it’s perfect for bigger parties, weddings, events, and even intimate weekends.

The Honeymoon Suite- This magical and intimate oasis is perfect for those who love the outdoors but want to sleep in luxury. The outdoor shower and shell sink spout are just a few of the many beautiful touches Osyth’s artistic imagination created.
