Visited this place in April based on a recommendation from the concierge at the hotel. I wanted to try local Aruba food and this place was a huge disappointment and not worth the money. I should have known when the restaurant was completely empty there was only one other table at the restaurant ! The staff was very nice, friendly... More

We asked our hotel concierge to recommend a place that serves Arubian food. It is situated in a mall on the 1st floor away from the downtown. I'm glad we asked because we would have never found this place. The atmosphere was great, the food was excellent and the waitress was very friendly! Will definitely return when in Aruba again!

There were five of us and we were each thrilled with our meals. A tour driver recommended it. The creole dishes are tasty, and the plantains were perfectly cooked. The portions are large, and the dishes come with a lot of sides. One in our group had steak with mushroom sauce--the medium steak was perfectly cooked. Seafood mix was enough... More

It was an okay experience. The wait staff was very attentive and on top of everything, but the most important part, the food, was mediocre. The pricing was not worth the portion sizes on both the entree's and deserts.

While this is not in the best location, authentic Arubian food and service was good. We decided to go to the movies located on the same floor--that was a surprised as the movie theater was clean, had comfortable chairs, and good security.Will return on our next visit.

When we arrived at 730 for dinner, we were the only ones there, so we were a bit concerned. According to our hotel concierge, Queen's serves the most authentic Aruban cuisine, so we decided to try it. It's in the Palm Beach shopping plaza, near the end of the high rise area. The waitstaff were very friendly and helpful in... More

This was our second visit. The staff is very friendly and happy to describe the dishes. I had Keshi Yena and my husband had Grandma's Stewed Chicken. The location in the mall near the high rise hotels is an easy walk.
