We showed up Oct 30th and it was closed. Nothing on the website indicating it’s closed, and they haven’t taken reservations in the past so we didn’t call. Hoping to save someone else a taxi ride.

We enjoyed this place as an alternative to sit down dinning. We lucked out it was $6 Wednesday for all Tapas plates ! Small plates were very good and the drinks were reasonable. Atmosphere and seating was fun. Its open air and very casual. We...will definitely return !More

We stopped in for happy hour just because we were walking around downtown and it looked inviting. The red Sangria was fantastic! We shared two of their tapas and they were fantastic. The fresh pita bread was soft and delicious.

Very informal -- you can wear shorts and a tee shirt and not feel out of place. The food is really good -- everything we had was fresh, well thought out, and interesting. For an informal night out and good food when in Aruba, Maroc...can't be beat. Highly recommend.More

We went here for Tuesday night "Tapas night" and we were pleasantly surprised. The ones we ordered were bruschetta, guacamole and fresh pita, garlic shrimp, calamari, fish croquettes, beef tenderloin, onion and peppers on small skewers. Every one we ate was very very good and...flavored perfectly. I wanted to go back again! My skinny margarita was perfect too!More

What a gem! My husband and I are long time fans of Chef Denis and Glen from Carte Blanche. Maroc is their Tapas bar/restaurant right next door. We just visited Aruba for four nights and had dinner here twice. Maroc is laid back with wonderful...food and beverages. The same quality and deliciousness as Carte Blanche but think small plates. We loved the Chef’s Platter which was 5 different Tapas for $20. What a great way to taste different dishes. Every night there are different specials. You know a restaurant is good when it is filled with locals. Don’t miss!More

My girlfriend and I visited this place and had a wonderful meal. Ambiance was intimate and reminded her of tapas bars in Barcelona. Food was well prepared, staff was friendly and prices reasonable.

This was a surprise for us, we normally don’t like tapas that much but these were amazing, super kind personell, good quality food and drinks. The only thing we disliked was that they were serving all the food in once and we like to take...our time while dining. So I would mention that next time I would go there. You should also try the other restaurants of this owner! They are all of real high quality!More

This was hands down the best meal we had in Oranjestad. The tapas were delicious, and so were the drinks. I would highly recommend visiting on a Tuesday where all Tapas are $5. The service was great, and the location was convenient. I would recommend...going here if you plan to stay in Aruba.More

It's a bit hidden in the downtown area, about half a mile from the Crystal Casino. It's basically right next to El Gaucho and everyone knows El Gaucho so just ask one of the friendly locals and you should be good to go.
