When your feet sink into the warm sands of Aruba, you can almost taste the burst of flavors waiting for you at the island's top Mexican restaurants.

Many in our community have Latin American roots, which has led to quite a few authentic family restaurants offering traditional dishes from their homeland.

The grilled meats, soups and stews of Colombia and Venezuela will warm your heart and tummy. The stuffed arepas and patacon sandwiches found at some of our food trucks are a decadent, ten-napkin affair!

Argentinian cuisine, heralded for its juicy beef, sausage and other grilled meats is featured at many restaurants and a visit to a Brazilian churrascaria will fill your plate with endless cuts of meat carved at the table by roaming gauchos.

Oh, and the ceviche – you must try our ceviche! Brought to us via Peru, a ceviche on Aruba is as fresh as it gets – with our local fishermen bringing in their daily fresh catches that are used by our chefs to produce several unique versions of this dish.

Central and South American restaurants in Aruba are abundant. The restaurants have become so easily integrated in our culture because Central American and South American cuisine resemble Caribbean food in preparation and presentation. There is a distinct difference in flavour that is unmatched. Aruba hasn’t been the same since the introduction of patacon and ceviche!
