Restaurants in Aruba

I have been to Aruba several times and always end up dining in the Sonesta hotel where we stay. Please advise on other local or hotel restaurants. Thank You.

My wife and I recently visited Aruba and found Chez Matilde especially nice. It is rewarding in food, service and atmosphere!

If you like steak, El Gaucho (Argentinian beef) is a must-but do make a reservation. Twinklebones is a fun atmosphere. The staff puts on a musical review of sorts with audience participation-again, make reservations. Boonoonoonoos (sp?) is also a great choice for authentic Aurban cuisine. We have visited Aruba twice and really have not experienced a bad meal yet. Do go outside of the hotel restaurants as the island has a wide variety of fresh, quality cuisine. We stayed at the Radisson. I believe they have made major improvements recently but did not have any complaints with the hotel when we visited. It is on a great strech of beach with a walkway that connects to the other hotels along the "high-rise" strip.

El Papiamento was by far the best restaurant we ate at. You can eat outside under the stars and the shrimp is excellent!

For romance: Ruinas Del Mar at the Hyatt
For Polynesian: Pago Pago at the Wyndham
For Excellent Fish: Brisas Del Mar in Savanta
Have fun!

Besides the El Gaucho, another
restaurant known for their churrasco
steaks, (Argentine steaks) would
be the French Steakhouse, located
at the Manchebo Beach Resort.
This restaurant, I understand, is
quieter and more romantic than
El Gaucho which tends to be
busier and bit noiser. We ate at
the French Steakhouse 3 time
and had outstanding steaks!
Another place to try would be
Gasparito's Restaurant and Art
Gallery-- focus is on Aruban and
Caribbean dishes. Try the Aruban
dish called Keshi Yena--- chicken
stuffed with gouda-- yummy! This
restaurant is also an art gallery
with paintings done by local artists--
they are all for sale.
So enjoy Aruba and explore!!!!
