Palm Beach — Located at Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort, Pure Beach is a casual all day dining café and bar with European beach club aesthetics. Encircled by the waters of the freeform resort pool, and bordered by the spectacular beachfront, the café is outfitted with comfortable couches for lounging along with low tables and chairs, a friendly dining room set up and plenty of stools at the bar, all decorated in a chic beige and white color scheme.
This week, the curtain went up on a refreshed menu featuring incredibly delicious food, artistically plated and served in generous portions.
The menu was inspired by the culinary team of chefs at Divi Resorts, with famed Corporate Executive Chef Matt Boland, at the helm. Chef Matt reports researching classic Caribbean sauces and garnishes, as well as using past menus as resources, bringing back top favorites in novel presentations, using the freshest fish, meat, vegetables and herbs available on the island, and conducting extensive tastings, with his team of chefs and with guests, to identify just the right type of beach-vacation dishes, befitting this charming all day lounge, bar and restaurant, in the island’s most relaxed beachfront setting.
You will find Caribbean Fish Tenders on the menu, made of crispy and flaky flash-fried grouper, served with a mango lime dipping sauce. The Shrimp & Seafood Ceviche is brimming with shrimp, scallops and calamari infused with lime and fresh herbs, served with pickled onions and peppers and a coconut cocktail sauce; the Greek Beef Tenderloin Kabob, flaunts tenderloin tips, onions and peppers, topped with feta cheese and Kalamata olives; and the Tuna Tataki, delivers sesame crusted seared ahi tuna, served over a wakame seaweed salad with a teriyaki glaze and wasabi aioli.
The menu goes on the introduce the Mojo Chicken Quesadilla, in a spinach tortilla filled with melted cheese and grilled chicken, served with pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream, and the star of the lineup, the Kobe Sliders, featuring three mini wagyu kobe beef burgers, topped with Gouda cheese and red wine caramelized onions. The Pure Beach Sampler is a great idea, for friends to share a sampling of the restaurant’s most popular appetizers, including chicken wings, kabob and fried fish fillet tenders.
As creative sides, diners will love the Pure Beach Signature Fries, French fries topped with salt, pepper, truffle oil, Parmesan cheese and garlic, mixing French fries with sweet potato fries. Canadian will appreciate the popular O’ Canada! Poutine on the menu, along with other options such as Tex-Mex Baked Potato, BBQ Baked Potato, and Veggie Lover’s Baked Potato, with all the trimming.
An especially designed pizza menu ideal for sharing features Pure Beach’s Pure Pizza, deliciously thin and crispy crusts including Pizza Pepperoni, Margarita, Mojo Verde, and Italiano, with a hearty sausage & mushroom sauce.
You may combine your meal in the restaurant’s fun ambiance with a chilled drink, your pick from a great selection of wines, or a hand crafted cocktail.
Best of all, because Pure Beach delivers an open-air lounge, a laidback beachfront bar, and a casual restaurant, go ahead and relax, pick your spot, soak up the warm Aruban sun while enjoying a drink or two, and a snack between frequent dips in the ocean.
