Eating in Aruba

In Aruba’s restaurants you’ll find fresh mahi mahi, red snapper and barracuda pulled from the sea and rubbed with creole seasoning. In upmarket restaurants and small local gems, stew pots bubble with rice, meats and rich Latin and African flavours.

All in the same day, you can indulge in traditional Dutch pancakes, sip ice-cold Aruba Aribas by the sea, and pile your plate high with pastechi—with a dash of spice from our local hot pepper sauce, pica di papaya. Around our tables, everyone is welcome.

Aruba’s dining options are some of the best in the Caribbean. Whether it’s a Balashi beer between friends or the catch of the day pulled fresh from the sea, the options are almost endless. Indulge in traditional dishes inspired by our diverse heritage: from Dutch bitterballen to rich curried goat and dishes from Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.
