Nice seafood themed restaurant with a very large and cool live fish tank. Perfect for our big group on a Saturday night last minute. Everyone loved their dinners but the red snapper was over cooked a bit for all 3 that oredered it. My fish & chips dinner was close to the best I've ever had. Very attentive service, we... More

This restaurant has slipped somewhat since the owner/chef passed away a few years ago. Last year was very good this year not as good .The escargot was very chewy ,the fish a little dry, the vegetables were ok. Perhaps we hit an off night I hope so as we've been going here for at least 15 years and overall it... More

A tropical fish tank along one wall, a decor that simulates the bottom of the sea, friendly wait staff and good food made Buccaneer's one of the more memorable dining experiences that we had during our visit to Aruba.

We visited the Buccaneer Restaurant again because we had such a great experience about two years ago. As we rated the restaurants that we ate at during our trip, this one was on our top three. We had sea bass and grouper that eventually got, as well as fish and chips. The soup was "to die for".

I think we had the best seafood ever in this place. Let alone that the interior is just great (fish tanks all over the place), the food is stunning. The service was also great...

We compared it favorably from Aqua Grill, where we ate a few days ago, The food was comparable, but the atmosphere was much more... More

First let me say this restaurant's interior is very unique. It is filled with built in fish tanks which were very entertaining. The food was about average. The Flan was delicious, my favorite part of the meal. Service was very good.

We have always gone to this restaurant but this time we were a little disappointed in our meal, The steak was not as good as it had been in years past and the service was a little lax. We will go again next time to see if it has improved. This is a nice restaurant and we hate to see... More

Buccaneer Aruba, over 36-years of tradition, a landmark where the locals love to dine. Buccaneer Restaurant provides Seafood and International dishes The Buccaneer has an undeniable ship-like nautical feel with a menu to match. The 36 year swashbuckling establishment is known for its entrees and reasonable prices, specializes in fresh fish and seafood as well as tender steaks, lamb, duck, pastas, poultry and has a kids menu. The dining area is an underwater cavern and the man made restaurant by late father and son (owner) impress with their version of under the sea pirate style with 18,000 gallon wall aquarium filled with tropical fishes and also provides a cozy booths section with individual aquariums. Buccaneer's commitment & passion for freshness as a way of life - a pledge that everything is 100% fresh. All of the above combined with the warm welcome and service of the staff and the chef always willing to come out for a chat upon request makes this a true memorable experience you can't miss out on. - ONLY 5 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE HIGH RISE AREA -
