In Dutch, Zeerover means Sea Pirate. But when you’re in Aruba, it means the freshest, most mouthwatering seafood a body can handle. You can find this cozy, laid-back haven of deliciousness in an unassuming shack in the heart of the fishing village of Savaneta. The catch of the day at Zeerover’s in Aruba might include wahoo, snapper, barracuda or kingfish – and when available, big shrimp. Better still, you’ll get hooked on the sides: “pan bati” or Arubian pancakes; “funchi, which are hearty cornmeal cakes or fritters; and “banana hasa” – the always scrumptious friend plantains. You can get orders to go if you want your catch grilled or steamed, but these sea pirates prefer their fishies deep fried. Stop by Zeerovers, grab a cold beer, kick back and nosh on the breezy wooden desk – it’s right on the water. The sunsets are rumored to be mind-blowing, as they are all over Aruba.
