Restaurants around Amsterdam Manor?

Hello,

We are super excited about our upcoming trip to Aruba. We will be staying at Amsterdam Manor for 6 nights.

I have made a list of several restaurants to try. But I wanted some suggestions for good breakfast places closer to our resort and also lunch options we can get to easily , if we get tired of eating at our resort.

We are a family of 4, with 2 teens. But we all love good food :)

Thanks in advance

Kush

Bobcat has good suggestions though a little far from A.M. if walking but 5 mins by car. My favorite breakfast places are Matthew's at Casa del Mar, Ricardo's at Aruba Beach Club and Water's Edge at Costa Linda.

La Cabana Resort (next to A.M.)

* Las Ramblas - Very nice outdoor sunset restaurant. Amazing escargot and rib-eye steak. Depending on time you want to dine, you may need reservations.

* Island Grill - next to La Cabana's Pata Pata pool bar. Never had dinner there but it's good for breakfast & lunch

Tropicana Resort (behind La Cabana)

* Pizza Bob's - open for breakfast, lunch & dinner

* Double Down Sports Bar & Grill - inside Tropicana Casino

Paradise Beach Villas (next to La Cabana)

* Terrazaa Italiana - very good reviews. They have an Early Bird special. Reservations needed.

* Chalet Suisse (past Paradise Beach Villas). Early Bird Special from April-Nov.

* Tulip at MVC Eagle Beach

FYI - Happy Hour: AM has a nice HH from 5-6 and 9-10. Peter the bartender is great. La Cabana has the best HH from 4-6 and 10-11 pm at Pata Pata pool bar. Most afternoons they have a live band. You do not have to be staying at La Cabana to enjoy. All welcome.

A.M. is a nice place to stay but quiet for teenagers. Depending on their ages, there is usually a volleyball game on the beach between A.M. & L.C. I think the game is around 3 pm but you can ask at the guest service desk in L.C. Lobby. L.C. also has karaoke night that is always a good time. Check day of week and time (usually 8 pm) at L.C. guest service.

Casino's - Glitz Casino at La Cabana & Trop Casino

I had a delicious shrimp & pasta dish at Mango's a few months ago. I'll be going back for that dish next month.

Sorry, I added dinner restaurants. I see that you were only inquiring about breakfast & lunch places. Closest would be Islander Grill at La Cabana, Pizza Bob's & Double Down at Tropicana.

LizfromNj, those are really great suggestions ! We can definitely use some dinner suggestions too :)

Looking forward to trying a lot of them . I remember having amazing Dutch pancakes on our last trip (13 years ago :) , I don’t remember the name though .

Thanks

I was going to help with a list but between Bobcat and Liz I think they got just about everything but Sbaro pizza at LaCabana, lol. That said, the pizza and food was actually pretty good at a great price.

Jay I didn't mention Sbarro's (poolside) as IMHO Pizza Bob's is better.

kush_1996: The Dutch pancake place you went to was probably Linda's Pancakes in Noord about a 10 min drive from A.M. Unless you were downtown at the Seaport where the Dutch Pancake House is located.

What's on your list so far for dinner? All the places that Bobcat & I mentioned for dinner are good. Are you seafood/fish eaters, Italian, Steak, etc. We can give you more suggestions if we know what type of cuisine you like. Many find fault with Madame Janette's (10 min drive from A.M.) but one of my favorites. Wacky Wahoo's located in the high rise area is great for seafood. It's hard to get a reservation as they don't take reservations online. You can have your hotel call (from 3:30-5) or if you have a vehicle, drive there to make a reservation. Bobcat has high praise for Driftwood Seafood located downtown. The have a 3 course special (you have to ask for the special menu). for under $30. I've never dined there but my sister has and enjoyed the food there.

I've haven't heard too much about Zuzuroh-Italian-Greek restaurant lately but I have enjoyed dinners there. They are down from Screaming Eagle restaurant. I've had more than "a" glass wine at the end of the night with Evert and Margarita. They are great hosts.
