The Buccaneer is one of Aruba’s oldest restaurants serving International cuisine with an extensive menu to offer for a great dining experience. In building this family restaurant, we took what everyone loves most about Aruba and transformed it into a reality. Yes, we took mother nature’s wonders and bottled up Aruba under one roof. This mixture is 10.000 gallons of the Caribbean sea together with many of Aruba’s friendly sea creatures, a lot of love to build it and continue to run it, an incredible experienced chef who delights the palettes and of course a friendly staff to make sure your Buccaneer experience is Memorable.

    My husband and I went to the Buccaneer restaurant last night when we found that Gasperito's was closed. What a lucky change of plans that turned out to be. From the moment we stepped through the nautical themed entrance to the 18,000 gallon aquarium with a very large array of huge fish, we felt comfortable and at ease. We shared a star appetizer, the shrimp cocktail served in a large perfectly ripe avocado. Thinking about it makes me want another right now! We also shared the fish and chips entree - delicious-both of us were stuffed! Our hostess, Angela, was gratuitous and took great pictures. We felt like we found the best restaurant in Aruba. We will be back again before flying back to D.C. And it will be on one of our "not to miss" places on our next trip!

    Wasn't too busy on a Friday night. Ate the Surf and Turf and the Chicken Parmesan with both being excellent. The lobster tail was cooked fresh after we ordered so the food took a little time to be brought out but it was well worth the wait!

    There's a first time for everything I ordered shark and it was the best piece of fish I've ever had! Always ask for catch of the day! Must visit.

    “Fine hospitality service” 2 thumbs up for the Buccaneer. Dear hubby and I each had grilled barracuda with seafood topping........which was all quite delicious. Excellent cold and fresh salads. The twice baked potato was delicious. Portions too generous. ;) Staff very accommodating and always there to serve. Will certainly go again. We have a few must dos on our restaurant list for Aruba. Buccaneer is always a must go to. Thank you Munzenhofers! Delicious.

    “An underwater atmosphere dinner” Special occasions needs special atmosphere. The Buccaneer restaurant has an underwater atmosphere with salt water fish tanks including turtles, lobsters, sharks and tropical fishes. Fresh catch by locals comes in every day. We have been to the Buccaneer many times and our experience has always been great. The fish tanks are always a plus for the kids, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. My favorite is the bouillabaisse soup, one of the best on the island.
