Definitely go here for dinner!

food was good and service was also good. We wanted to try authentic Aruban food. Our server took to time to tell us about authentic Aruban food, it's history and etc... which helped us decide what to select. We were pleased with our selection. The prices was also nice.

Quaint restaurant with authentic Aruban food. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful in selecting our entrees.

The food was great but compared to some of the other places in the area, it's a bit pricey. Also watch out for the included gratuity in the bill - there's nothing wrong with that but we're not used to seeing that for a party of two and there was no warning that it would be included.

The food here is excellent! Great Aruban food! You have to go here. It's a bit small so get there early. Service and drinks good, too!!

We ate here on the advice of one of our cab drivers; we asked where we could experience Aruban cuisine. At first, we weren't sure about the location - it's on the second floor of the Palm Beach Plaza Mall. However, The Queen's seems to exist in its own little world. The decor is airy and features lovely antiques; the... More

It's sometimes hard to find good vegan food while traveling but the owners of this restaurant made sure to prepare one of their dishes without non-vegan ingredients for me. They also brought me a delicious local bread with a tasty dipping sauce to try. The environment was comfortable and relaxing. A nice place to eat especially for people staying at... More

Great authentic Aruban cuisine! We tried Mom's Stewed Chicken, the Stewed Goat, the Keshi Yena (chicken covered in guoda), and the grilled tenderloin. All delicious!! The staff was so friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. It was a great dinner. Recommended!
