Named for its location at 7 Weststraat in Oranjestad, this charming, chic open air restaurant, a mélange of contemporary European sensibility with nostalgic Arubiana, will charm you not only with its delightful layout and décor, but a very reasonably price gourmet menu.
The emphasis is on continental classics with a deft touch of Caribbean flavors. The a la carte menu will tempt you with a diversity of choices, but your check at the end of a delightful repast will particularly make you smile. 7 West is ideally situated to enjoy the breathtaking sight of Oranjestad Harbor, offering a lovely vista of the Caribbean Sea. Dine on the terraces overlooking the street or cool off in the air-conditioned dining room while enjoying a classic Dutch breakfast, bargain-priced lunch or elegant dinner.
Chef Boomkamp prepares a daily lunch special for only 12.50 Arubian florins, ($7.20) comprised of whatever is fresh, usually fish just caught from local waters. A platter includes fries and salad for a true taste of the Caribbean at an unbeatable price, in the most elegant and comfortable of surroundings. If spending a day in Oranjestad shopping and seeing the sights, this a deal you can’t afford to miss! Friday night is just right for an island favorite: barbecued ribs. 7 West has the best priced all-you-can-eat ribs special on Aruba for only $15, including fries and salad. Ribs are served hot to your table, not buffet style, but you can keep on ordering freshly prepared platters until you say “uncle!”
7 West has recently completely renovated their interior to present a most pleasant choice when dining in Oranjestad; a stunning private banquet room is on the way. The second story restaurant overlooking the harbor is a perfect choice for a special event, and owner and staff are ready, willing and able to help their patrons plan the party of a lifetime. .
