At Aruba Beach Cafe, good food, drinks, friends, and laughter are always the catch of the day. Whether you arrive from a stroll on the beach or from the valet, you will immediately feel the island influence. Nestled in the swaying palms of the beach at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Aruba Beach Cafe is a reminder of the Caribbean.
Open 7 days a week, guests can be in the “Islands” at a moment’s notice. A smiling bartender will greet you with imaginative tropical cocktails at the 3 friendly bars. The casual bar, where familiar faces greet one another on a first name basis, is a favorite with locals and tourists. With wines, beers, and frozen concoctions all served to the beat of live island music.
Chef Christopher Nealon has spent the last 40 years creating delicious tropical dishes in South Florida restaurants, and even on private yachts in the Bahamas, West Indies, and the Virgin Islands. Today he is a highly regarded executive chef in South Florida, and his well-honed culinary skills quickly achieve respect from all who work with him.
Chef Christopher has been with Aruba Beach Cafe for 30 years, and continues to tantalize the taste buds of the masses. He has received both the Golden Spoon Award and the Florida Magazine Readers choice for 4 consecutive years, and is also a 4-time 1st place winner at the Fort Lauderdale Seafood Festival.
I could go on and on about this culinary wunderkind, but why don’t you go visit Aruba Beach Cafe yourself, and try Chris’ Sesame Crusted Salmon, Seafood Stir Fry or Lobster Salad Sandwich (1st Prize in Ft. Lauderdale Seafood Festival) just to name a few. The Conch Fritters with tequila and lime remoulade were voted best in Ft. Lauderdale, too.
