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

The service at this restaurant was decent. The complimentary bread was excellent and unique. However, the entree I tried - Stuffed Gouda Cheese with chicken, a local specialty, was really salty, and did not taste good. I would not recommend.

Had a great dinner paired with delicious drinks and friendly service. The only thing missing was the supposed "authentic" Aruban food that was supposed to be themed here. We thought it would be a little more like good old island cooking, but instead was more like Westernized, fine dining/casual experience. It definitely didn't have an island feel in terms of... More

The food here is fantastic. For those that want a true taste of Aruban food, this is the place to go. The "Kesi Yana" is outstanding, as is the "Goat".
