No trip to Aruba is complete without a visit to Zeerover in Savaneta. This out-of-the-way, local restaurant favored by locals serves seafood right out of the ocean. You can actually follow your meal from the boat to your plate--now that's fresh! I had a basket with catch-of-the-day fish, shrimp, fried plantains, and french fries, washed down with Balashi--the national brew. Great place to have a meal and watch the sunset. Rough directions: coming from Oranjestad, once you are in Savaneta look for a Domino's Pizza place on the left. About 50 feet down, take a right and soon you will see the ocean on your right. About a half-a-mile down is Zeerover. Look for a large statue of Betico Croes holding an Aruban flag--the restaurant is next door on the left. And remember, that's Zeerover, not Zeerover's or Zeerovers--because, as an employee explained to me while pointing to a pirate's flag above, "Zeerover is one, not many."
