European and Dutch Cuisine

Savour authentic European flavours brought to Aruba over several centuries.

Down the centuries, many European conquerors have at some point looked on Aruba as their own territory and home. The English, French, Spanish and Dutch have all left their mark on the island.

Aruba forms part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and this fact is partially reflected in the number of Dutch and European restaurants in Aruba. From traditionally Dutch snack bars to pancake houses and ‘poffertjes’ stands, Dutch cuisine can be found all over the island.

Aruba forms part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and this fact is partially reflected in the number of Dutch and European restaurants in Aruba. From traditionally Dutch snack bars to pancake houses and ‘poffertjes’ stands, Dutch cuisine can be found all over the island. While most Dutch food is considered comfort food for cold winter days, it is just as tasty when you experience it at a Dutch restaurant in Sunny Aruba.

Belgian, Austrian, French, Italian, Greek and Spanish cuisine also stake a claim on the island's menus.
