Best Places to Eat in Aruba

My husband and I are always on the search for the best coffee and food while on vacation. When it comes to delicious food and views, Aruba definitely did NOT fall short. I’ve compiled my list of must eat spots in Aruba from my personal experience. Read on for everything from breakfast to dinner!

Madame Janette

Go for a romantic dinner under the twinkling string lights and enjoy the sound of live music. One of the best meals I had in Aruba (I went twice)!

Must try: Lobster Thermidor

*Make reservations ahead of time!

Flying Fishbone

Enjoy a meal while watching the sunset with your toes in the sand! During high tide the lower seating area is partially flooded just enough to cover your feet. If you’re lucky enough you may get some sea life swimming around you while you dine!

Must try: Shrimp Shi-take & Blue Cheese Casserole

*Make reservations ahead of time!


If you’re a sucker for Aruban sunsets, Pinchos is another great spot to dine while watching the sunset into the ocean. Located on a pier, you’ll have 360 degree views of Aruba’s stunning blue ocean. Listen to live music while enjoying delicious fresh catch.

Must try: Any of their fresh catch

*Make reservations ahead of time! Bar seating available for walk-ins!

Eduardo’s Beach Shack

Located right on the beach, just in from of Playa Linda Beach Resort. Eduardo’s Beach Shack is the perfect spot for a grab and go breakfast or lunch. Get yourself an açai bowl or a poke bowl and enjoy it by the shore!

Must Try: Poke Bowl

Aruba Experience Cafe

Nestled in Oranjestad you’ll find a charming little building filled with culture, serving up breakfast and lunch. Dine indoors or outside, both spaces are so charming! Delicious coffee and food. We ate here twice!

Must Try: Arepa breakfast sandwich and lattes

Santos Coffee With Soul

Santos in another charming spot for breakfast and lunch. One of my favorite spots for lattes with oat milk! Friendly staff and plenty of vegan/dairy free options. After grabbing a bite, walk to the beach or check out the near by shops!

Must Try: Breakfast sandwiches and lattes

Additional great spots to eat:

Lola Taqueria – Open for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (Go for $2 Taco Tuesday)

Diana’s Pancakes Place – Great for breakfast! Serving Dutch styled pancakes.

Faro Blanco Restaurant – I didn’t eat here but the views and food look great!

Fireson Brewing – Not only a great spot for beer but delicious cocktails too! The “bar food” was so delicious!

Yolo Cocktails and Tapas – A great spot for tapas and craft cocktails
