A local farm-to-table restaurant
Welcome to Taste My Aruba! We are an authentic, family-owned, farm-to-table and sea-to-table restaurant. We believe that food is culture. When you take a seat and enjoy a meal in our outdoor garden, you will be able to enjoy the flavors that are unique to the island alongside friends, family, and loved ones.
Each day brings new food, and because of that our menu is never the same. Everything here is from Aruba and for Aruba. All of the meals that we serve consist of only fresh, local ingredients. Join us for dinner and experience the culture and soul of our beautiful island.
Please remember, we are a small business and it’s important that you honor your reservations. There is a high demand for seating and we do our best to ensure that we can accommodate as many visitors as possible. If you are unable to make it, please contact us ahead of time so that we are able to provide someone else with the chance to join us for dinner.
“This little café offers big rewards… Inventive and affable owner-chef Nathaly is passionate about her menu” – Lonely Planet Restaurant Reviews
Nathaly has partnered with renowned chef, John Lejuez, who brings experience and refinement to Taste my Aruba. Like Nathaly, John was born in Aruba and then lived abroad for 24 years of his life. During those years, he worked in some of the finest restaurants in Barcelona, such as Hotel Neri, Els Pescadors, and Essence Espaisucre, the world’s first dessert restaurant.
John is an incredibly skilled chef and a perfectionist who is obsessed with the little things that make food special. While working in some of Barcelona’s finest eateries, he became a master of dessert and an expert in seafood. Despite his impressive background and expertise, he’s incredibly humble and soft-spoken. For John, the kitchen is his place of self-expression. He puts his heart and soul into each fish that he masterfully filets and prepares.
