A Taste Tour of Aruba

There's a lot more to Aruba than just seafood... here are some of the best food experiences across the island

There's nothing like sitting on the beach while enjoying an amazing seafood meal.

For a unique dining experience:

Your mom might have told you not to eat in bed. But at the Screaming Eagle, they’ll invite you to do it. It was so much fun to climb atop the giant bed and dine and recline all evening long from cocktails to dessert. And they have eating in bed down to a science with perfect little trays designed just in-bed dining and impeccable service. So have no fear that you’ll be uncomfortable. Comfort, in fact is the name of the game. All you have to do is relax and enjoy. The only problem is dragging yourself out of there when you’re done.

For the best of everything dining:

If you want the best view, the freshest seafood, the most inviting atmosphere, the closest you can be to the water without getting wet, you know, the best of everything, you want to go to Pinchos Grill & Bar. The restaurant is on a dock so there is nothing but water all around you, including below you. The food is insanely fresh and divinely cooked. And the service will make you feel like family, and there’s nothing better than feeling right at home.

For a taste of Carnival:


Carnival only happens once a year, of course. But if you can’t get to Aruba for the big event, you can still experience a taste of Carnival by paying a visit to La Vista restaurant. Every Thursday night, La Vista hosts an outdoor, seafood buffet dinner complete with a Carnival show at 7:00 p.m. Rumor has it the music, costumes, and dancing make it very hard to sit still. The good news is that you don’t have to! (Reservations are required.)
