Nestled in the heart of Aruba, Infini offers a unique and unforgettable dining experience that sets it apart from other fine dining establishments on the island. As an exclusive chef’s table with only 18 seats available per night, Infini promises an intimate journey of flavors and sensations that will leave guests in awe.
One of the defining features of Infini is the personalized attention given to each guest. As diners take their seats at the chef’s table, they are greeted by skilled culinary artisans who not only cook and plate each dish but also take the time to describe the origins and inspirations behind every creation. This interaction elevates the dining experience, making it not just a meal but an immersive journey into the world of gastronomy.
The Asian Caribbean Impressions Menu, with its 8 courses and amuse-bouche, showcases a blend of flavours that pays tribute to the rich tapestry of local producers and farmers on the island. Each course is thoughtfully curated to celebrate the island’s natural bounty and honour those who have contributed to the culinary landscape of Aruba.
The journey begins with the Amuse-Bouches, featuring mushrooms from the local urban farm, ‘Farm a Cure Fungi’. The dishes, such as the ‘Mushrooms Canele’ and ‘Shiitake Pirouline’, are a testament to the talent and creativity of the team. This delicate yet flavorful start sets the tone for the culinary adventure that lies ahead.

The intimate space, catering to a maximum of 18 guests, ensures that every diner receives personalized attention from the chefs, making them feel like VIPs at a private gathering.
Each course of the 8-course menu tells a story of its own, paying homage to local producers and their dedication to their craft. Dishes like ‘Lechuga’, a lettuce-based creation in collaboration with another local farm by the name of ‘Aruba Happyponics’, exemplify Infini’s commitment to supporting the community and promoting sustainability.
The restaurant’s commitment to showcasing Aruba’s unique ingredients continues with ‘Cocolishi’, a dish featuring Norwegian scallops and ajoblanco, a Spanish gazpacho variation. The meticulous presentation and combination of flavours highlight the skillful fusion of cultures in every bite.
The dish ‘Maishi y Cabaron’ embraces the local essence of corn and shrimps, while ‘Terrine di Porco’ pays tribute to the island’s talented bacon producer by the name of William Jansen.

Moving on to the desserts, ‘Mango y Coco’ offers a delightful pannacotta, while ‘Berehein y Aloe’ showcases the innovative use of eggplant and aloe vera, cultivated by farmer Loraine of ‘Petite Greens Aruba’. Each dish is a testament to the creativity, passion, and culinary excellence of the team at Infini.
