    Places to eat near LaCabana

    Okay my Eagle Beach friends I need some help. We are under 3 weeks and its time to start doing some planning. What is around LaCabana to eat that is within walking distance to eat at? We will dine at the Ritz almost as if we are staying there at night...well actually we are staying there our first two prior to moving. So what is around for casual-really good. We need a few lunch choices but really hate leaving the beach/pool area.

    So far we are eating at the Divi Bar at the Ritz when we arrive and at least one other time, we are also doing BLT followed by Aruba Rays comedy show, Bugaloe on Tuesday so we can watch the Joyride band. We will also dine at Solanio at twice. So that leaves me 3 other nights plus my lunches. We also need a nice place to dine when my son has movie night at LaCabana- we want to be close and wont venture far. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    I was thinking about going back to Passions but I think sitting in the sand has lost its luster for me as I have gotten older. Do others really enjoy the dining on the beach experience? We have done it a few times and really enjoyed it but I don't see it happening now, lol.

    We love Chalet Suisse, which is just up the road from La Cabana. That is my husband's favorite restaurant. If you walk a little further, you will come to Tulip and Screaming Eagle. Screaming Eagle is a little on the pricey side. We've never eaten there, but people rave about it. There is a Pizza Bob's right behind you at Tropicanna. We go to the Pizza Bob's at Costa Linda every trip. Near Alhambra, there is Elliotis, Elements at Bucuti, Ike's Bistro and The Chophouse at Manchebo, Ricardo's at Aruba Beach Club, Matthew's at Casa Del Mar.

    We like toes in the sand dining, but prefer the food at Barefoot (close to the airport) over Passions.

    Try the food truck on Eagle Beach (across from Chalet Suisse) for lunch.

    Restaurants at La Cabana: http://www.lacabanabrc.com/food-beverage

    For lunch I would go to Islander Grill across from the beach by La Cabana's pool. http://www.lacabanabrc.com/readBlob.do?id=3139
    There is a Sbarro's Pizza next to the pool but I find it expensive and not very good.
    For dinner, we liked La Ramblas (next to the playground and Islander Grill) at La Cabana for a nice dinner and to see the sunset with live guitar music. Though we dined there with my grandson, I don't remember if they have a kid's menu, but you can order a kid's meal from the Islander Grill and they will bring it to La Ramblas. http://www.lacabanabrc.com/readBlob.do?id=2683 . Closed Sunday.

    A different type of pizza is Pizza Bob's that is behind La Cabana at in the courtyard at Tropicana Resort. https://troparuba.com/dining/
    At the Trop there is also a Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins. I usually get my breakfast & coffee there. If your an early riser, there usually a long line when they open at 6:30 am.
    Casual at Tropicana Casino is Double Down Sports Bar https://troparuba.com/wp-content/upl...MN-FNL-PQ1.pdf . Casino is very small but if I'm not at the Marriott or Alhambra Casino, I usually close the Trop Casino down at 3 am. LOL. No poker though there Jay but they do have Black Jack Tournament nights.

    For upscale dining that's very close to La Cabana I would choose Chalet Suisse or Screaming Eagle. I'm not sure what the table # is, but reserve the romantic alcove table at Chalet Suisse. Closed Sunday. http://www.chaletsuisse-aruba.com/ . A little further walk is Screaming Eagle. Nice bar for drinks before dinner, inside or outside dining or dining in bed (I'm a little too old the dining in bed LOL) https://screaming-eagle.net/

    Don't miss Happy Hours at La Cabana, the best on the island. At Oasis Beach Bar hut and Pata Pool Bar at 2 pm is 2 for 1 on frozen drinks. The Pool Bar also has a great HH from 4-6 pm and 10-11 at the Pool Bar. All drinks 2 for 1. Great bartenders and a fun time. Live entertainment in the afternoon and games. I'm not sure about Joyride but the Equator Band play at Pata Pata. If they still have it, check out Karaoke night by the pool. Your son might enjoy it.

    Elements is mentioned above, I want to make sure you know its adults only, so that would have to be a night you have a sitter, but well worth it! As a family you may enjoy Twist of Flavors near the Alhambra casino. A lady on the beach was talking about how good their kid's menu was.

    Another vote foe Las Ramblas. 4 of us agreed it was our favorite meal last trip, which was a pleasant surprise since it isn't mentioned as much as other restaurants. Fabulous surf and turf specials and best escargot I've ever had. It is now on our must do list. Screaming Eagle also fantastic. Pizza Bobs at Tropicana good choice for lunch, as well as Islander Grill. We were disappointed with the food truck but many do love it.

    And as Liz said, Pata Pata happy hour is great fun!

    All great choices. One place I didn't get to check out was Mangoes at Amsterdam Manor. They got pretty good review on trip advisor. I dinned at Tulips twice in November 2016 which are owned by Amsterdam Manor and the food was great, casual and affordable. They have this seafood casserole that is to die for! Seriously! It had everything from grouper, salmon, shrimp, calamari, the works!. it was part of prefix meal under $30 which included an appetizer, the entry and dessert. I took the dessert (cheese cake) to go. I was just too full with the casserole..
