The food is full of love as is the service at this Oranjestad neighborhood restaurant where first timers become regulars. Family run carries on the most delectable and varied selection of appetizers, main courses with all fresh ingredients, and their homemade desserts are a must to close a perfect dining experience. Congratulations to Owner and Chef Marco Arce for a... More

You will find the Delimar in the center city of Oranjestaad. As you enter, you have the cooling sense of a friendly restaurant. The walls are very thick and brightly painted and have scenes and objects from Peru. We were here for lunch and started with a Ceviche which had a bright citrusy flavor and the white fish, shrimp and... More

We were wandering around the city a bit lost in the heat of the day when we stumbled upon this gem. We had passed up a couple of the local tourist traps earlier and we were quite famished. Service was prompt. The Piscado del macho and it was excellent. Very fresh and the sauce! Would recommend to anyone trying to... More

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
