The Plaza has been on Aruba for many years and is still one of my favourite places to go to.....with children ))) You don't go to the Plaza for the food, because it's average. But it's also not expensive, so the price/quality is good. But it's the perfect place to go to for dinner with (small) children. They can walk... More

We had a lunch which was very average. The smoked salmon sandwich had good ingredients but it the bread was thick and not tasty. The soup of the day was also not very exciting. They had a nice patio area and good service but that was about it.

My partner and I were staying at the Renaissance Hotel and didn't want to pay the extortionate price for their breakfasts, so I hunted around for places open for breakfast and this fit the bill perfectly. It was close by, in a good location and the pricing was very reasonable. We both chose the American Breakfast for $9 and had... More

Very reasonable price breakfast and great quality. We had breakfast here multiple times during our stay and enjoyed it. A few things I liked: location to the Renaissance, right next door, the American breakfast was a good portion but not ridiculous, the fresh fruit was a small portion but very nice. They didn't have a kids menu but I was... More

Whenever we travel to Aruba we have breakfast at The Plaza Café. I love the Dutch atmosphere. Their food is hot and delicious -- especially their homefries with sautéed onions. Coffee is delightful -- served in a pretty cup with a liner and cookie on the side. Their orange juice is freshly squeezed before serving. And the pancakes ... mmm.... More

We had one dinner and one lunch recently at the Plaza. The dinner was pork sate and lunch the schnitzel special. Both were excellent and very inexpensive ($13.50 and $10.00, respectively). Service was excellent. Restaurant is a very good value.

Whenever we are in Aruba we have breakfast here. Not only is the food good, they have the best coffee on the island with free refills. The farmers omelette was huge filled with vegetables with bacon, home fries and toast. One night we tried it for dinner. Our server Roy from Holland was so friendly. Even though we only had... More

A very nice place with decent food. A no nonsense dutch service, efficiënt and fine. Do not expect superb quality yet with live music and people watching a nice place to be.

Staying at nearby Renaissance we finally tried them out and found not only some of the most reasonably prices, but really good food, a friendly waiter in Roy and enjoyed the live music on the Plaza. We had enough fun with them we dropped in again for drinks the next night as well as sampling a Dutch specialty snack of... More
