Specialties include wood-fire grilled meats and seafood, along with an extensive vegan menu. A must-try vegan specialty is their Superfood Salad. Other favorite dishes include the triple tail fish and tenderloin with truffle sauce (mains), carpaccio, tuna tartar (starters) and basically all desserts! Reservations required, closed on Sunday. Insider tip: try a taste of their great wine selection.

Lima Bistro seating Lima Bistro dish

Lima, Peruvian cuisine (Oranjestad)

Lima Bistro is a culinary must-try when in Aruba, with Peruvian-born top chef Teddy Bouroncle honoring his roots with flavorful bites and specialty cocktails. Overlooking the marina at Harbour House (Paardenbaai) and cruise dock in downtown Oranjestad, the waterfront setting is dreamy and the interior is very cozy and tasteful. Peruvian classics include fresh ceviche, lomo saltado and Pisco Sour. All so good, go and try for yourself. Open daily except Sunday, from 5-11 pm.
