So many restaurants, so little time? With so many fine international and ethnic restaurants to choose from, how do visitors make their dining choices? The Dine-Around Program of the Aruba Gastronomic Association is a perfect place to start.
In existence for more than a decade, the Aruba Gastronomic Association offers several attractive dine-around plans as well as gift certificates. This is the only dine-around program of this scope in the Caribbean! Prospective visitors to the island can purchase the dine-around on-line or upon their arrival in Aruba. It is also the perfect gift for a special occasion such as a honeymoon, birthday, or anniversary
Committed to culinary and service excellence, AGA restaurants make food safety a priority by participating in training programs and inspections throughout the year. They are also visited routinely by “mystery shoppers” who evaluate all aspects of the dining experience.
