ARUBA- Restaurant, Grocery and Happy Hour Recs Please!
- Unknown Eater Apr 30, 2006 10:47 PM
Planning first visit to Aruba in the fall. 9 nights at the Bucuti Resort on Eagle Beach.
Any recs for casual lunch? Burgers, sandwiches, pizza, salads, fish & chips, the usual suspects. Beachfront outdoor joints?
Dinner- This could be casual or not, expensive or not. Steak, seafood (conch & grouper?), Italian, regional favorites.... No Japanese or sushi.
Great food, value, and decent service is always preferred, but a fantastic view, unique setting, or memorable experience scores big points too. Closeby would be great, but not limiting ourselves to that.
Any good lunch/dinner places within walking distance (1 mile RT) from the Bucuti? Any take out joints?
Also looking for recs for nearby or well priced grocery stores and casual beachfront, poolside happy hours, especially those with steel band or island music.
