The Paddock Website

On this site you can find information such as opening times, events, happy hours and the menu. It is also possible to view photos of all those cozy moments in The Paddock.

Eetcafe The Paddock, located next to the fruit market at the harbor, is the most famous Eetcafé on Aruba and is the only true Dutch brown café of Aruba. It is completely different from any café on this tropical island. It exists for 15 years and is located in the historic center of Oranjestad. The Paddock is known for its relaxed atmosphere, service, good cuisine and Dutch snacks such as bitterballen, snackplatter croquettes, etc (ask at the ministry). You stroll between the inner bar and the standing tables by the water or you drink a beer or mixed drink on the cozy outdoor terrace with sea view.

One Happy Island, One Happy Paddock!

The kitchen is open every day from 9.00 am to 11.00 pm and serves various Dutch dishes. The daily specialties are highly recommended. On Wednesday you can eat 'all you can eat' Spare ribs for Afl. 22.75 per person. On Thursday is the stew day at The Paddock with alternating sauerkraut, kale, endive stew, etc, for only Afl. 15.00 per person. On Sunday it is 'all you can eat' citizens for only Afl. 17.50 per person. In addition to these fixed specials, there is also a changing lunch special every day and a daily snack, which are really great.
