All You Can Eat buffets and combo meals of wildly popular fast food chains are not the only alternatives for saving money while getting the most value out of your meals. Aruba’s budget-friendly offerings include cozy a la carte restaurants, casual oceanfront eateries, modern cafes, pancake houses... Much more than one single 10Best list is able to showcase.
Focusing on the whole package deal instead of the menu prices only, creates a more diverse selection of smart eating out options. For vacationers who would love to taste as much of the island’s culture as possible, great local eateries like Zeerover serve fresh-caught seafood with authentic Aruban side dishes, everyone can afford.
Because Aruba is part of the Kingdom Of The Netherlands, its Dutch roots are not only visible, audible and tangible throughout the island. This land of tulips and cheese offers an array of delicacies to engage all the senses. At Diana’s Pancake Place, situated right next to an old and authentic windmill, guests can enjoy a real Dutch breakfast or lunch surrounded by cows, clogs and canals (painted ones, but nevertheless).
All time favorites such as The West Deck are always worth a look. Especially at sunset, while sampling a couple of refreshing cocktails, succulent chicken wings, a surprisingly varied menu and live music by local artists.
For lunch or dinner, an old faithful that never disappoints is local Chinese restaurant Kowloon. Keep all your cravings satiated with these money-saving suggestions.
