Food

Finding authentic local desserts is a piece of cake. Literally! So, let's explore Aruba's distinctive after-dinner delights called bolos, which is the Papiamento word for cakes.

Well-traveled and well known as an expert on Caribbean cuisine and international influences from many other regions, Chef Matt Boland has been bringing back global inspiration to his adopted home of Aruba for the past two decades.

Eat Local: Aruba Restaurant Month
Sunday, October 1, 2017 to Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Let your taste buds go wild during the Eat Local—Aruba Restaurant Month! The One Happy Island invites you to explore its culinary heritage with locally inspired dishes.

Funny how children put all kinds of inedible things into their mouths, yet when it comes to eating real food they can be summarily un-adventurous. But there’s no need to settle for tried-and-true fast-food outlets when Aruba has such an eclectic variety of fun and friendly restaurants perfect for the entire family.

As a visitor to any Caribbean island these days you must have heard people making a fuss about lionfish. But it’s such a beautiful creature; you might have wondered why locals are so hell-bent on destroying it. After all, it’s just a little fish, right? Wrong!
