Downtown Restaurant Suggestions

Wondering what some of your favorite restaurants close to downtown are? We are not planning to rent a car this trip and are staying at the Renaissance. We will venture out by taxi/bus but not every night. Suggestions for fancy, romantic (celebrating 10 year anniversary) and casual appreciated.

Within walking distance of the Renaissance, for a special occasion, I would suggest LGSmith Steakhouse. Otherwise, Windows on Aruba is a short taxi ride away. $9 each way with an additional $3 each way on Sunday or holidays.

Many of my favorites are downtown...

Cuba's Cookin'

Driftwood

El Gaucho

Yemanja

All of the above are casual.

Love LG Smith too!! Ask for a table by the window overlooking the marina!

BAREFOOT should also definitely be on your list of places to consider - you can walk to it from the Renaissance (we do).

Driftwood is our favorite in town. An easy walk from the Renaissance.

We stayed at the Renaissance last year and really enjoyed LGSmith Steakhouse. It is right down the hall in the Marina building. Which building are you staying at? Are you going AI or non-AI?

Driftwood, El Gaucho & Kowloon all are a very short walk from your hotel.
