Simple, little place in Oranjestad. Not fancy but clean and nice. Servers are polite and fast. Food is EXCELLENT! The cebiche is a must, tiradito en aji amarillo was something I will never forget. I know its a bit exaggerated but you won't regret it. It's delicious and very affordable.

Took a cab from the high rises to get here. Side street location explained why the concierge, doorman and 2 can drivers had never heard of this place. Staff friendly. Menu not very descriptive. Ceviche was ok. Had better in Mexico and US. The special was Arroz con Pato which was highly recommended by the server. On a bed of... More

One of the big changes we have seen since we moved to Aruba 12 years ago is finding a good, inexpensive locally owned and operated restaurant. This is one restaurant downtown that seems to fit the bill. It is called the DELIMAR Peruvian Seafood restaurant and is next to where Que Pasa used to be. It's opposite the Protestant Church... More

My wife and I had lunch here while in the city. The owner is wonderful. These guys make the best tres leches cake we have ever had. It alone deserves a trip back.

casual, economical meal located in Oranjestad, Aruba. The cerviche was very good, and, my seafood on rice combo. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. The waiter and service were delightful! Drinks were typically expensive. Meal price, moderate.

Had dinner twice at this Peruvian Restaurant, the first night their seafood special and the second another seafod dinner of their regular menu. Both meals were superb. The blending of flavors was wonderful. Owners/staff are very pleasant. And the Flan was great for dessert. Prices are reasonable. You won't be disappointed.

The ceviche is excellent - as were all the dishes we tried. It was so good we ate there 3 nights. The owner's name is Marco - he aims to please each customer and he does!

Recommended by our host at the Club Arias B & B, this family restaurant in Oranjestad was a treat. The ceviche was prepared with local fish (of course) and was fabulous. We each had fresh seafood prepared in Peruvian styles and enjoyed our dishes very much. As others have said, the restaurant was not too busy. We arrived at 7... More

This was a very pleasant find. Food was excellent and the Tres leches cake superb. Don't let the emptiness at dinner fool you. It is busy at lunch with a local crowd. We would have passed by if not for another couple telling us they'd eaten there before and the food was very good. They were right. If you are... More

Tried to eat at Que Pasa, but it was full, not even room at the bar. And the hostess seemed truly disappointed she colliding fit two more. So we walked by Delimar and they were empty, which usually is a bad omen, but I was overall content with the meal. The appetizer and first cocktail came out in a timely... More
