Delicious and affordable food.

Excellent place for dinner, surprised by not seeing many guests as food was very good and prices were reasonable. The owner and his wife were friendly and nice. Fish soup ( mahi mahi was the catch of the day) was excellent and the fish was perfectly made. Would highly recommend.

Best cebiche in Aruba. You know it's good when you are surrounded by locals out to lunch. The people that run it are friendly an accommodating. If you want some good food, and you want to get away from the passengers (crew members know what I mean), seek this place out. The one downside for me is the pan pipe... More

As with other reviews, this restaurant was fairly empty. I don't know why, because the food and service could not have been better. The ceviche was delightful, as were all four of our meals and the price was very reasonable. If I lived in Aruba, I would eat here often.

This place was a bit deceiving. We walked in and it was pretty empty and very quiet. Two people (possibly husband and wife) were working. We debated whether or not to stay...we decided to give it a chance. All I can say is we are all glad we did! From the ceviche to the red snapper (which was on special)... More

This was by far the best food we had on Aruba. I had the ceviche with seafood (clams, fish, shrimp and octopus) Everything was fresh and above my expectations! This is a smaller place with a nice, clean and authentic Peruvian decor! A "must stop" for seafood lovers while on island!!

Dined here last night for the first time after hearing a lot of good things and I was not disappointed! I had the fried calamari and yuca for an appetizer and I really enjoyed it. The seafood pasta with garlic sauce was out of this world! I will definitely be going back.

...but to be fair to the wonderful owners and staff, I will. While brochures, cruise ships and concierge may steer you to the 'big' restaurants in Oranjestad, Delimar is the best kept secret in town. The food is delicious, service friendly and it just may be the best seafood on the island. Part of me really wants to keep this... More

This is a really good restaurant. It's not your usual fare and it's not too pricy. We had the civeche and found it to be beautifully presented and fresh. It was a little one-note due to an abundance of citrus, but really refreshing for lunch. Nice staff and prompt service.

We (2 couples) had dinner a wonderful dinner at Delimar last year. The owner was very attentive, the food absolutely delicious. Due to the fact that some dishes are not mass produced, it took a while for the food to arrive, but we didn't mind. Atmosphere was very relaxed, AC worked well, and the drinks were good. The restaurant is... More
