Bucaneer Restaurant in Aruba

Aruba Realty's Review

This restaurant is uniquely designed to give the feel of being in a sunken ship, it is surrounded by a 12,000 gallon saltwater aquarium and each table has its own rectangular porthole next to it. Diners will enjoy watching the array of barracudas, sharks and grouper swimming past them while they are enjoying a delicious meal at this fascinating restaurant. As you would imagine the seafood served in this restaurant is excellent and there is always catch of the day on offer, the menu is extensive and offers meat dishes as well as fish. The atmosphere is great and the kids are sure to love the fun dcor and the experience of seeing the fish swimming by so close!

If you love meat and have a big appetite, this is the restaurant for you! The theme of this restaurant is meat served in mammoth portions. The restaurant set in a colonial townhouse and is beautifully decorated in traditional Argentinian style with real cowhide seats complimenting the intimate booths. The food served here is absolutely excellent and the menu includes anything from steaks and seafood to salads and soups! If you are looking for a good hearty meal, this is the place to come while you are in Aruba.
