European and Dutch

Savor authentic European flavors brought to Aruba over several centuries.

Over the past centuries, many European conquerors at one point in time considered Aruba their territory and home. The English, French, Spanish, and Dutch all left their mark on the island.

​Aruba is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and that is partially reflected in the amount 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.
