Welcome to AGA

Aruba is world-renowned for the quality, abundance and diversity of her fine restaurants. International chefs and restaurateurs lend their own distinctive signature to Aruba’s multi-cultural culinary heritage. Fascinating flavor fusions result from the combination of these various elements and styles, creating dishes exploding with color and taste.

The Aruba Gastronomic Association (AGA) began two decades ago, as an offshoot to the original Aruba Restaurant Association. Today, AGA represents more than 30 well-known ethnic and international restaurants revisited over the years by many thousands of satisfied customers.


Committed to culinary and service excellence, AGA restaurants make food safety a priority by participating in training programs and inspections with local and international facilitators throughout the year. They are also visited routinely by “mystery shoppers” who evaluate all aspects of the dining experience that you will enjoy.
