Description: Sweet Peppers is a fun, family-oriented restaurant featuring Aruban and Caribbean cuisine along with a selection of international dishes. The Paesch family owns Sweet Peppers: You’ll run into Harold, Anky, and their six children all the time at the restaurant, and two of their children work here as well. From our family to yours, we extend a warm bon bini (welcome). Sweet Peppers has you covered for every meal of every day. We’re not some fancy high-end place putting on airs, we just serve great food and have a darn good time doing it. We take a casual approach because we want you to feel like you’re part of our family – the Sweet Peppers family!

“Good Service, Good Food”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Went here largely based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. My wife had the coconut shrimp and I had the sesame tuna. The shrimp were fresh and tender, not overcooked and the coconut sauce was delicious. The tuna was cooked perfectly, warm throughout but pink to red in the center. Both meals came with vegetables and rice. We asked if we could substitute an extra helping of vegetables instead of rice. They were very accommodating and honored that request. Service was friendly and attentive. This one is certainly a keeper on our list of places to which we will return.

We went to sweet peppers last night for dinner with friends and were not in the least bit disappointed. Our friends started with tomato soup, which they said was very good. I had snails and they were excellent. Everyone else had the baby lamb chops for their dinner and they were wonderful, nice and meaty and juicy. I had their pan friend grouper with mixed vegetables and that was also excellent. The service was great, the meal was great and the company was also great.
We will return.....

“We stayed at CPVR for one week ending Jan 4, 2014 and their resto Sweet Peppers was awesome”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

We had absolutely great service at this restaurant all week that we stayed there.For breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menus showed a vey good variety of choice at a reasonable price. We mostly had dinners there since we had food from the supermarket in our room for breakfast and lunch. All staff at this restaurant were awesome and always served us with a genuine smile. We could not have asked for better service and quality of food was absolutely great. Jose, Debby and Yanis were specially nice and very helpful all week. Many Thanks to all staff at the Sweet Peppers restaurant, it made our week very much enjoyable.

“Wow Whee What A Find”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

The food in this lovely, friendly casual restaurant is utterly superb.

The yellow fin tuna salad (nice portion) was sublime. The escargot was delicious and there were 2 snails in each little well.

The grouper was cooked to perfection and came to the table hot (not warm, perfectly hot). The vegetables were fresh, simply prepared and lucious.

The surf and turf was also a home run. The steak was a perfect medium rare and the shrimp and scallops (not the usual lobster). We're prepared flawlessly.

Even the coffee was great and the waiter went so far as to warm the milk. Unfortunately we were too full to try any of the tempting desserts.

Staff and owners were so friendly that they actually added to our dining experience.

What a find.

We had the opportunity to have breakfast, lunch and dinner here on various days and each time the food and drink was delicious. My husband had the best lobster of his life here (and he's had a lot of lobster:) Beatrice, Jose and Iris, you rock!!!
