Café the Plaza is not only the perfect location to enjoy a meal or to have drinks, but also the perfect place to relax and unwind, read the newspaper or to have a swinging night out on the weekends.

The food was good and the price was unbeatable. We've visited a couple of places but this one was the easiest on the wallet. Plus we loved the live music and the view when these large ships passed by in the evening. Will definitely return

We had American, Aruban breakfast and sandwiches there. Always came quickly with nice service. Prices up to $10, for sandwiches it's less.

Well we stumbled upon this gem by accident. Was hungry and looking for a place to eat. Was in shell shock over the prices of food. Say the locals at this place decided to try it!! We ate there 3 times during our stay. Lunch was $8-10!! Services was slower, but they get busy and only have 2 girls working, who are very friendly. They work, don't get me wrong, they can only do so much with being that busy. But we loved it...fresh bread, homemade soup, homemade crab salad...just a wonderful find.

Ate here on the first night of our holiday, and on two other occasions. You would not eat here for a special event, but excellent cafe / pub type meals. We loved to sit outside watching the live entertainment on the stage located at the end of the Renaissance Marketplace. When the entertainment was finished we would normally go inside, sit by the bar, and enjoy the company of the two Dutch barmen, who played some great music. The service in general by all staff was excellent, particularly Monike who showed great hospitality over and above the call of duty. There is a challenging quiz every Tuesday, which we participated abysmally in, but enjoyed it. A pint of Balashi, the local brew, cost $6.50, which was the cheapest we found in and around the Renaissance area. Happy hour drinks half price between 5 - 6pm.Highly recommended as an eating place and a drinking establishment.
