Lloyd G. Smith Blvd 13, Oranjestad, Aruba

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating



Take in spectacular ocean views on Oranjestad's harbor 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 favorite amongst cruise visitors for a quick fix.

Eetcafé The Paddock, located right next to the fruit market and the harbor is a genuine Dutch bar in Aruba. The word 'Eetcafé' means that you can enjoy different popular platters each day at modest prices in a friendly atmosphere as you savor your favorite beverage.

We offer the best unobstructed ocean views overlooking the harbor of downtown Oranjestad. 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 favorites like burgers and chicken saté with fries. And our friendly bartenders can mix any cocktail of your choice.
