Buccaneer
You may get the feeling you're dining below the deck of a sunken ship, as 12 large aquariums with colorful fish surround you. Our unique decor creates a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Our second dining room resembles an underwater cave, complete with a 5,000-gallon sea water tank, unseen elsewhere. Our friendly staff will give you the "Welcome Aboard" feeling and the chef-owner will personally take care of you.

Phenomenal!

Love the Buccaneer! The food was fabulous...fresh fresh fresh fish and seafood. We had large group, and everyone raved about their selections. James, the Executive Chef was the best. It was so much fun having James at our table, helping us decide what dish we wanted to experience, explaining the dishes...and treating us to his expert service, opinion and culinary skills. What a nice treat the night was...we will be back for sure..and spread the good news about the Buccaneer! Danki!

Excellent evening, Buccaneer is definitely ba

May 2, 2016 - posted by
Was on island for a meeting and our team went to Buccaneer one evening for dinner. Some had been in their glory days and other had never been. We had heard the sad and disappointing news of the decline of the restaurant and were excited to go due to the new chef. The evening did not disappoint. The owner and the chef both took time with our group. The staff was friendly and personable, the food excellent! They have kept many of the menu items that Buccaneer was known for and added new items. 16 people walked away very full and very happy. We will be back and hope you give them a try as well.

Food is good, employees pad the bill

We went here because we were recommend by locals. The decor n setting was sea n pirate style. Pretty cool layout with huge fish tanks. The food was very flavorful, we all had fish entrees. Our bill was presented by our waiter and we were told where to sign. We took a minute to look over the bill and found we were overcharged for an extra Long Island and 2 extra deserts. I brought this to the waiters attention and was refunded the incorrect amount of $25.30. Great food, but be careful not to get over charged.

Buccaneer is back

this was one of our regular places but it started to go downhill so we did not go there for 3 years. heard that they had a new chef so we decided to give them one more chance and it proved to be a good decision. They are back to the way it used to be. great food, great service and of course great ambiance for an island restaurant. very reasonable prices as well. great for kids. worth trying again as we did.

My husband could not even chew the twin tenderloins. When he told the waiter, he just smiled and gave me a card to write a review. We've been going there since 1985 but when the owner passed the prices went up and the food quality changed... No one seemed to care our meal was awful... Won't be back....

This restaurant was recommended by several locals, and I can only assume they get kickbacks for referring people there. The food is very dated -- stuck in the '80s -- and dead generic in every possible respect. The swordfish steak was low quality product, and when told this the waitress just said "oh" and took it away.

The taste was nothing to write home about. The waiters had a "patter" rather than a personality. The decor looks like something you'd have found in a chain restaurant in the 70s. It's dark, outdated, and really not worth the money. There are far better places to visit on Aruba.

We have been going to Aruba for 23 years and because our friends think Buccaneer is great we went almost every year (much to my chagrin). After our last visit we have decided that we will not be wasting our money any more. Service is slow and the servers seem very confused as what to do. Food barely passable. The chef from way back is no longer there so maybe that is the issue

Knowing we were dining with a 7 year old, the hotel recommended this restaurant. Very child-friendly with the feeling of dining on an old pirate boat. The huge fish tank was cool, especially for my daughter.
The food was very good for a casual restaurant. Not a place we would rush back to, but definitely would recommend to someone dining with children.
