For casual dining in a friendly atmosphere, come to Salt & Pepper. Located at Arawak Garden, across from Barceló Aruba and the high-rise hotels, Salt & Pepper is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their menu offers something for everyone, including daily specials that feature a bounty of fresh seafood, exquisite à la carte choices and their famous tapas… which go perfectly with their home-made sangria.

Enjoyed dinner here on a Sunday evening. It wasn’t too busy nor too crowded. The “early bird special” (although it wasn’t early at the time I got there) was a great deal of 3 tapas and a glass of sangria for $25. There was a...singer nearby that made the atmosphere lovely and the overhead string lights made it even better. The tapas were great!More

We only visited here for drinks one day whilst out and about on bicycles . The staff were very attentive and friendly and the toilets were really clean . Sadly I cannot comment on the food here

I was craving a good hamburger and tried out this place. I have been back several times (I am here working a travel nurse contract) and it is about the only place I can get a hamburger cooked medium. Most places cook either rare or...burnt. The service has always been good (shout out to Jeff!) whether I am alone or with a group. The food isn't anything amazing, but it is decently priced and reliably good. Don't forget to ask about their specials!More

Me and my friend ordered 2 tapas the beer fried shrimp and the ceviche, the tapas weren’t bad the ceviche lacked a bit more flavor but overall wasn’t bad, however me and friend ordered 2 burgers. I had the deluxe burger and he had “The...burger” we both ordered Medium and it came well done, we didn’t want to complain and just ate, the deluxe burger wasn’t bad but I think it would have been better if it had been medium, my friend said “the burger” was dry and not good at all. (He also got his well done)More

Lovely place, amazing collection of salt and pepper shakers, bit pricey on the drinks. Worth a stop for lunch. Premier league football showing (so long as American Football isn’t clashing).

One of the best breakfast places on the island and I can honestly say the pancakes were the best I have ever had. The staff was friendly and it is a short walk from all of the hotels.

My wife and are in Aruba for the 12th year or so (come down 1 - 3 times a year) and usually go to town once or twice per visit. Our regular lunch stop on these outings was closed (no cruise ships in town—YAY!) so...we went to Nord to see what was open. We’d see this Salt and Pepper place before and the menu looked appetizing...so in we went. We had 4 tapas off the menu and they were good value for the price. Heineken available on tap, too. I’d eat there again for sure.More

Coupons come and go all the time in Aruba. Check the coupon books when you arrive. I know they have 10% off right now. Your hotel concierge can give it to you, if it is still available
