Seafood Dining in Aruba

Dine on fresh seafood to your heart's content--it's one of the foundations of our local culinary scene.

Aruba’s local fishermen, often out at sea before most of us are out of our beds, supply many of Aruba’s restaurants with daily fresh catches.

​From elegant fine dining restaurants to casual roadside fish shacks, we've got plenty of opportunities to get your fill of the freshest catches from the Caribbean Sea here on Aruba.

The waters off Aruba’s coast are teeming with a variety of seafood. Some of the catches to look for while dining on the island includes mahi-mahi, snapper, grouper, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, Caribbean lobster, and shrimp. Try fish local style--pan-fried and served with a tomato-based creole sauce. Sample our traditional keri-keri (shredded, seasoned fresh fish), fish balls, or fish soup.

Seafood restaurants in Aruba are plentiful. This is only natural as fresh fish is caught here every day and has become a staple with the local community. The restaurants are also nice and varied. One will offer a delicious seafood buffet while the other will serve a-la-carte dishes. Whether you fancy a lobster meal or you would like to try the catch of the day, the best seafood in Aruba is always fresh and prepared with care.
