We visited this little gem of a restaurant twice during our stay - absolutely lovely food, the grilled chicken dish with spices was our favourite, and the wahoo delicious as well. Prices very affordable, nice laid-back vibe and good service!

We recently dined at Hopi Bon and the meal was excellent. I had a grilled chicken and shrimp combo and my husband had grilled wahoo. The food here is always so fresh and the prices are very, very reasonable. Our entrees were both around $20.00 and for the quality of the food, it's a steal. The atmosphere is so nice... More

Excellent grilled food, well seasoned at a reasonable price. Eating outside, listening to nearby live music and people watching rounded out our evening.

We come to Aruba every year and always eat dinner here 2 or 3 times. Very fresh food, veggies and garlic rice are great sides to either the Wahoo or chicken dishes. Percy and his staff are always friendly and personable. Give it a shot!

Hopi Bon means "very good" in Papiamento and is an apt name for this family run Teppan style restaurant. My girlfriend and I ate at Hopi Bon the final three evenings of a 10 day trip to Aruba as it is simply the best food we've found in Oranjestad. It is owned and operated by a very friendly couple and... More

My wife and I visited Hopi Bon on Valentine's Day for lunch while our cruise was visiting Aruba. We looked at Trip Advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. We come from the Canadian prairies where meat is king and the seafood we enjoyed that day made our trip. My wife had the shrimp platter and I had the seafood... More

We went here for lunch. It is a small outdoor restaurant, across from the governments buildings in Oranjestad, in a mall. There is no ambience, but the food is very good. We had the Gouda cheese-filled spring rolls, which were okay, but should have been cooked so they the cheese was hotter and more melted. The grilled wahoo fish in... More

A not so hidden gem; Hopi Bon is located in the Renaissance Mall across from the Seaport Casino. If it weren't for the recommendation of friends, we would never have found this restaurant. Family run, Mom is the chef and Dad is the host. They really take care of you. Teppan stir-fry is freshly made (you can watch if you... More

Went here last year and it was fabulous. We were excited to return here for lunch. I had the mussels appetizer and my wife and I shared the scallops and shrimp. The mussels were not bad and the scallops and shrimp were ok. My problem was the cost. Twenty-four dollars for two scallops and four shrimp some rice and a... More
