Trip Advisor Traveler Rating


Take in spectacular sea views of Oranjestad's harbour from the terrace of our open-air casual Dutch café, The Paddock.

The Paddock is the perfect spot for a light bite, cocktail, lunch, dinner or late night snack. Located just steps from the cruise terminal, this is a favourite among cruise visitors for a quick bite.

The Paddock, located right next to the fruit market and the harbour is a genuine Dutch “Eetcafé” (bar serving snacks) in Aruba. Enjoy different popular dishes every day at modest prices in a friendly atmosphere as you savour your favourite drink.

We offer the best unobstructed ocean views overlooking Oranjestad harbour. You'll have front row seats to watch cruise boats slowly pass by as they depart and can admire Aruba's famous sunset from your bar stool.

Menu items range from sandwiches and snacks to dinner platters featuring favourites such as burgers and satay chicken with fries. And our friendly bartenders can mix any cocktail of your choice.
