About the restaurant
With Infini meaning “Limitless Possibilities”, Chef Urvin Croes wants to offer dishes made without boundaries, exploring new possibilities and stepping with two feet outside the box. A chef’s table concept where diners and staff are able to interact throughout the evening, channeling through a story guided by the menu.

Urvin has worked in different roles starting as an apprentice cook and ending as a Chef de Partie and Sous-Chef for the highest-rated hotel restaurants on the island of Aruba. He gained experience in Europe working with 1-Michelin star rated “Grand Hotel Karel V”.

He enjoys buying many of his ingredients from local farmers. It is a combination of all the aforementioned, which is reflected in the dishes created at Chef Urvin his restaurants. He has many accomplishments, which aside from his culinary degrees also include several medals and he is locally famous for being the first winner of ‘Iron Chef Aruba’.

Grant us the honor of fulfilling your culinary desires.

Everyone was great at their jobs and made us feel comfortable. We were visiting from the U.S and celebrating our anniversary and they made us feel really good. We will come back again.

This restaurant was our favorite during our vacation. The complimentary housemade bread was sublime; it was light and fluffy, grilled for added flavor. We used the accompanying “butter” as a dip for the bread. We ordered the pork belly gyozas, the Gringas (essentially a quesadilla), and ceviche for shared appetizers; they were all amazing. Our entrees were duck breast, mahi mahi, scallops, and roasted chicken; all were delicious. The chicken was also super tender.
