Eetcafe The Paddock
Eetcafe The Paddock, located right next to the fruit market and the harbor is the only genuine Dutch bar on Aruba. In Holland we call it an 'Eetcafe' meaning that you can enjoy different popular platters each day in a friendly atmosphere as you savor your favorite beverage.

Every year The Paddock is one of our must go lunches. We go on Sunday, so we can park in front. There have been years when my points were a lot less. This year we really enjoyed our lunch. They have added sand to their patio, which gives the feeling of sitting on the beach. My carpaccio sandwich was excellent, as were the Tosti Paddocks of the others. The one minus were the fries. Being a Dutch restaurant I'd have expected much better. I had one, it was cold and overfried. Disappointment for this Dutch girl for sure. But besides that it was better than other years for sure.

I tried to go there with my wife. We entered it, sat near the water in the back, and waited. After 15 minutes without receiving any attention, we simply left. There are so many other nice places in the island where you will be treated really well. I don't recommend yoy going there.

We always enjoy the casual atmosphere at the Paddock. The food is good and very reasonably priced. The servers and bartenders are very friendly. You are sure to have a great time.

We had EXCELLENT service both times that we went to The Paddock on our recent months stay in Aruba. The all you can eat ribs were delicious and cheap and I had barely finished my first plate when the waiter was there asking if I would like him to bring me another. He did, very very quickly and with a smile on his face. I cannot say enough good things about the friendly and efficient service we had. We were lucky enough both times to get a nice water side table. The pork sate and the grouper sandwich were delicious too.

We really enjoyed The Paddock last week on our trip to Aruba. We went on a Wednesday and had the all-you-can-eat ribs for $13. They were very good and a relative bargain for Aruba. We found the servers friedly and also enjoyed the live music that night. If you go, get a nice harbor view table. This is also a great place to go for a drink or two.

On Wed nights you can get "all-u-can-eat-ribs" for $13!! Situated on the ocean side of the downtown area, picturesce of the cruise ships. Food was very good, baby-back ribs. We had about 5 racks. Service was good, as it was crazy. You can ask any waiter/waitress for something and BAM, you got it. Will visit again for sure. Casual dress, casual atmosphere, and great food, COME EARLY THOUGH!!

Great find!! And CHEAP prices....A great hamburger. We didn't go for the DUTCH component. We didn't know. However the menu appealed to all and we sat right on the beach in the downtown area.

A great find
