De Suikertuin is located in an older building downtown with thick stone walls and has a nice rustic decor. The restaurant has an extensive menu of sandwiches along with some salads and entrees. They also offer breakfast and poffertjes for dessert. The food is fresh and good. I like to go there with girlfriends.

The place is quaint and feels very rustic, and old in the best possible way. You can eat inside or out. perfect for a quick lunch, nice fresh drinks and a friendly staff.

This restaurant is a little hard to find because it is not on the main street, but it's well worth the short walk. The food was unbelieveably fresh, great tasting and very reasonably priced combined with delightful service. We stopped in Aruba on our recent cruise,and it was a wonderful change from ship food. Also, they have free wi-fi so... More

Worth seeking out! Away from the tourists, lovely atmosphere and excellent friendly service. Delishous healthy lunch, not your average sandwich or burger. Had a perfect ending with a split of home made hot apple pie with ice cream and whipped cream, worth every calorie

This is our fourth year visiting Aruba. We were very happy to find this restaurant. It is really nicely decorated and has a beautiful private open patio on the rear for al fresco dining. In our opinion, they serve the best breakfast on the island! Very reasonably priced - especially given the quantity and quality of food they provide. In... More

After nearly a week on the island was looking for something other than seafood or burgers for lunch. De Suikertuin reminded me of a European sandwich shoppe. We had the Italiano and the chicken curry on a croissant and both were delicious. Staff very attentive and courteous. The building is old and beautiful with lovely decor.

This restaurant is off the tourist district and a little difficult to find as there are no road signs downtown. It was worth the treasure hunt. The food was great. It had old world charm with a lovely private garden area with tables.

Downtown Oranjestad. Great food, very friendly waitresses. Kids had pancakes, we had various salads. We sat in the lovely garden, with birds 'suikerfdiefjes' flying in and out of the cage. Newspapers available. Great place.

We loved this little gem--located in Downtown but off the "Tourist Path" with excellent food, quick service. I had the pesto chicken salad sandwich, my fiance had the Waldorf salad sandwich, both served on a super fresh baguette. We both ordered the "regular" sized portion (vs the "Additional" or larger portion) and this was more than enough! We would definitely... More
