Outside seating on the plaza

This restaurant has a good location on the plaza right in front of the stage where was a lovely singer. You can enjoy the open air seating and entertainment. I had delicious ribs and we had many coctails during the happy hour.

Great authentic Dutch lunch in Aruba. Food is cheap, but does not taste that way. Sandwiches are about $4-$5.

I ordered the chicken liver dinner and it was awesome. My new hubby was a little taken aback because he's from the big city of Chicago - I couldn't get him to try. More for me, yummy.

Stopped for breakfast at one of Aruba's oldest restaurants, Cafe the Plaza on our way to Renaissance Island. The service was speedy and the price was good for a full American breakfast which included eggs, sausages, bacon, hash browns and pancakes. The $9.00 included unlimited coffee. This is a good place for hearty breakfast that can carry you for hours... More

I ate at the Plaza Cafe several times during my stay in Aruba. It was a convenient restaurant near our hote, Renaissance Marina. Food was excellent, service was very friendly, and the prices were decent. I will definitely recommend it to everyone.

This restaurant has a good location on the plaza right in front of the stage for the nightly entertainment. You can enjoy the open air seating and plaza entertainment while eating dinner.

Let's face it folks, Aruba can be an expensive place to visit. Particularly if much of that money is going toward dining. I have a timeshare with a kitchen which we use occasionally, but who wants to spend their vacation cooking. That's where the Plaza Café helps. The Plaza Café has a menu with great variety for breakfast, lunch, and... More

We came here hot off the plane in search of a nice place to eat that wasn't expensive. The Plaza Cafe has a large selection of well-prepared food options and for great prices. The quantities are big too!
