Try the Goat

The Queen's offered a very nice dinning experience. The music was current and enjoyable. You can tell the staff really loves what they do and are there to cater to your every need.

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!

This place is on the second floor of the Palm Beach mall. Other than the movies , the mall is pretty dead , but this restaurant is worth searching out. I love Carribean food and I ordered the most Caribbean dishes on the menu . I had fish cakes , chicken stew with rice and peas , plantains and a... More

We wanted to try some authentic Caribbean food and found this restaurant upstairs at the Palm Beach shopping center. We were there fairly early for dinner (5:45) so we were the only ones there. Therefore the service was excellent because there was no one else there. The hostess was very welcoming and friendly. I wanted to try a dish I... More

Based on recommendation from concierge we tried this restaurant and were very happy we did. Because they are located on 2nd fl of mall don't get much traffic. Service was excellent and so was food. Crispy calamari was hot with wonderful sauce. Whole pan fried snapper was cooked to perfection and served with fresh vegetables and Aruban bread like a... More

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
