Cafe Capri, Aruba

Cafe Capri is located on the main road through Paradera on the island of Aruba, DWI. It’s a great little bar/restaurant where you can eat inside or outside. They describe their food as Venezuelan. Well, I stopped in with a pal, as I never pass up a chance to try some local chow.


We settled in at the bar around lunch time. The place was not crowded and service was quick and competent. We split a mixed grill platter. What a platter it was! Here’s a photo:

The meats are: sausage, pork, beef, and chicken. This was almost a belly buster for the two of us who shared it. We soldiered on and cleaned the plate.

On your way to other parts of the island, such as the Casibari Rock formations or the natural bridge, you pass this place. Stop in on the way or the way back. Spanish skills are helpful.

Bon dia from Aruba.
