Fresh Red Snapper! Prepared by family and served by family. Many locals seen dining here. If you are ready for something besides the tourism rat race then we highly recommend CocoPlum. Sadly, they close at 6pm. Glad they serve breakfast all day

I really liked this restaurant. It was cute and small and had a nice variety. We got Aruban style egg rolls, fried fish and a skewered chicken. Owners were very gracious.

Chicken Sate and Plantains with a Mango fruit drink were our absolute favorites along with Sergio, our server! A free trolley goes from the cruise dock directly in front of CocoPlum, the essence of real Aruba, rather than touristy aruba!

They are local, family run and they don't have a posted menu that I know of. It is fish, ribs, soup, Aruba specialties-very fresh and specials are what was good in the market that day. You won't be disappointed.

Not far at all. Approximately a 15 minute walk. You can also use the trolley that runs downtown to get closer to the restaurant.
