Casual Restaurants

Hi Everyone!

This will be our second visit to Aruba, and our Honeymoon! On our previous trip we stayed at the Tam (all inclusive). We realized if we ever come again we would not stay at an all inclusive in Aruba because of the amazing food around the island, and we ended up paying more for eating at a couple restaurants off our resort. That being said, this time around were staying at the Bucuti and Tara Resort. I have an idea of the more expensive restaurants I'd like to try from reading other forums, Passions, Barefoot, Screaming Eagle, Madame Janette's etc.

Are there any really good casual restaurants to try in Aruba? Were staying a week and a couple of the nights we would like something a little less expensive.

Thanks in advance,

Amanda

We enjoyed the pizza at Mulligan's. Not the familiar type of pizza, but very tasty. They have a varied menu at reasonable prices. Very beautiful surroundings. Visit Windows On Aruba upstairs for another upscale dining choice.

We enjoyed appetizers at the West Deck downtown. Great view of planes coming in and we saw a ship leaving port which was great and very close!

We love Pizza Bob's, which is right in the parking lot of Bucuti. Matthew's at Casa del Mar is also good and right next door.

Casual restaurants walkable from the Bucuti: Ellioti's, Pizza Bob's, Ricardo's (at Aruba Beach Club), and Matthew's (at Casa del Mar).

Other casual restaurants that we like that are located near the high rise hotel area: Bingo's, Linda's Pancakes & Pizza, and Barney's.

We had good burgers at Bingo and Bugaloe this year. Barney's has great specials during the week and I've always found their food to be good.

Thanks Everyone!! Since Pizza Bob's and Matthew's is so close to the resort we will most likely try those either for lunch or dinner. We may try one of the other choices further away as well.

TonyNorthCapeMay - we went to Windows on our last trip and loved it!! We will have to check out Mulligan's

Thanks for the advice, can't wait for our trip!!
