Seafood

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 include mahi mahi, snapper, grouper, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, Caribbean lobster, and shrimp. Try fish local style--panfried and served with a tomato-based creole sauce. Sample our traditional keri-keri (shredded, seasoned fresh fish), fish balls, or fish soup.
