Authentic Aruban cuisine can be divided into several categories: land or sea, elegant or casual, traditional or modern - the same goes for all the other international eateries on the island. But if the focus is on home-style cooking, local restaurants serve fresh Caribbean catches accompanied by the island’s typical side dishes such as funchi (polenta), fried plantain and pan bati (hearty pancakes). Zeerover in Savaneta is a good example of a fishermen’s shack that serves local finger food on a pier by the sea. Other laid-back alternatives are Cafe 080 in Noord, offering Dutch specialties, cold beers and great value. For a bit more ambiance and menu options, there’s The Old Cunucu House in Palm Beach, where visitors can experience a real island feast in an old Aruban home. If the taste buds are ready for some bold latin flavors, Delimar prepares a couple of unforgettable Peruvian favorites. Never been to Portugal? Start with the most delightful Portuguese palates at the friendly family restaurant Gostoso. Have no regrets and pull up a chair at as many tables as possible during your stay, just make sure they all are comforting and welcoming like the ones listed on this 10 best Aruba home-style restaurants.
