Located in a shopping mall but within walking distance of the high rises. Recommended by a local. Food was delicious. Service slow but they tried hard and were friendly. We are there once as a couple and once with a group of 5. We all loved our food. Worth trying.

The restaurant is placed in a shopping mall so don't expect a terrific view. The food was ok, but didn't impress us. Service was also ok, but the lady serving us didn't had a good english so I kinda ordered blindly 'cause I did not understand what the food was about. We payed about 70$ for 2 main courses with...

We came here last Sunday night looking for authentic Aruban cuisine. Not many places are open on a Sunday, so we were excited that this was open. When we arrived the place looked closed. There was no hostess and the restaurant was empty. We wandered in and the cook greeted us. The hostess finally appeared and seated us. The menu... More

What a treat! The Queen's is a perfect place to go if you are interested in trying some local dishes. The Goat Stew is wonderful as well as polenta/pan bati. The combo of the fried corn bread and that sweet onion dressing is perfect. The service is friendly and the value for the food is good.

My friend and I ate at this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Nice cloth napkins, incredible service and awesome food! I had the cheese with chicken dish. It was very unique and very tasty.

This restaurant offered something different in both the food and the atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service was incredible, and we enjoyed every bite! With authentic Arabian cuisine (including goat), they had options for everyone from the adventurous eater to the more reserved. Out of all the restaurants we ate at throughout our week long vacation, this is... More

Food & Service was impeccable. Varella(owner), her sons Josh & Jordan offered great drinks and island food. If you are brave or a foodie please try the goat dish. It's Mama's recipe! MMMM good!

My girlfriend ordered the stewed goat and had never eaten goat before. It was truly delicious and the entrees were served with plantains, cream potatoes (which were absolutely to die for!) and rice and beans. I had the stewed chicken. It was worth the money and definitely a friendly staff wanting to help answer our questions and offer suggestions. They... More
