Often tourist destinations suffer with poor service and food. This is an exception. We started with Jamaican jerk wings. Great right amount of spice. Then on to specials the fresh chilled seafood. Need to make this shop.

Arubas is always a fun dining experience. We were lucky to get a table right on the beach which makes dinner even more fun. The food is good, atmosphere casual and cheerful, and the location can't be beat. Be sure to order bread!

This was a place that we went to to have a nice family dinner. That night it was a little bit loud due to a live musician but the food was pretty tasty. There was a small problem with my nieces steaks but everything else was fine. Good service.

We love Aruba's! We had 4 meals there during our stay; as well as enjoyed the night time entertainment. The staff did a great job accommodating us, on a very busy night. We highly recommend this place! A more mature crowd, 35-60, which worked great for us.

Love this place! Right on the beach, outdoor patio or indoors, great food, steel bands, fabulous view of pier and ocean. Walk along the beach after lunch... We go here at least once every time we come to this area.

Every time I visit Aruba Beach Café, I have a great time. The setting is casual, the food is great, the servers are upbeat and friendly, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Plus, you have an ocean view from almost every angle!
