Elements Restaurant at Bucuti & Tara Resort: Natural & Organic Dining By the Sea

Vegan-Dining-Aruba--Elements-Restaurant

Experienced by Kimatni & Misa Rawlins

We were looking for a blend of health conscious culinary experiences alongside fine dining and found the precise place. Just two years old, the luxuriant Elements Restaurant is nestled within the Bucuti & Tara resort on Aruba’s Eagle Beach. Hosting adults only, my wife Misa and I enjoyed a full-on vegan collection of exquisite, warm and chilled selections. There was nothing more enchanting during our Aruban vacation than natural and organic dining by the sea.

“The dining experience is an extension of our commitment to a sense of total wellness, providing guests with a beautiful atmosphere and wholesome dinner options, which include organic/natural, vegetarian/vegan, gluten-free and world cuisine,” stated Owner and Managing Director Ewald Biemans.

For the entrees, Misa ordered the Quinoa Pineapple dish consisting of quinoa sautéed with a medley of vegetables creatively stuffed in the shell of a whole pineapple, and then flamed in front of us with Caribbean rum. I went with the Wheat Spaghetti featuring squash pasta, tomatillos, leeks and Quorn which was enhanced with garlic, Dijon mustard and Riesling wine. Dessert consisted of the Panna Cotta, a chilly assortment of almond milk, coconut milk and cacao simmered together and topped with chopped nuts.

Misa and I were seated outside on a patio atop the pristine, white sandy beach where the Caribbean waters were calm, palm trees whistled gently from the soft breezes and the temperament was as romantic as a sunset wedding. You may also pay a bit more to dine in a private palapa directly on the sand. Other items guests may fancy include the Garden Fresh Salad, Mediterranean Mezze Chili Hummus (chickpea puree with chili pepper), Couscous Zucchini medallions dusted with fresh herbs, carefully blended Potato Leek Soup, Carrot Ginger Soup, Polenta Galettes served over a bed of lentils and much more.
