Driftwood is known for serving their fish the way a local Aruban would want to eat it, typically with a mildly spicy creole sauce. The fish is caught fresh daily.


With the fish being caught, prepared, and cooked all by the restaurant, you can be sure that the fish on your plate is some of the freshest being offered in a restuaraunt anywhere in the world.

Driftwood is a bar and grill that offers Aruban and Caribbean cuisines, as well as seafood. As far as the style of dining and food goes, the setting is informal. This eatery is open for dinner only, so be sure not to miss their open hours.


Resembling a series of fishermen's huts, the Driftwood Restaurant is situated on a side street. Decorated with gnarled driftwood posts, slats laced with ship lanterns and Captain Nemo underwater helmets, this rustic Aruban restaurant exhibits a warm and cozy dining vibe.
