Poor location on the second floor rear of the Palm Beach Mall BUT worth seeking out. Have been going here every since it opened in downtown and then moved to Palm Beach. Very friendly staff and owner. Really home cooked specialties worth experiencing. Good prices. Can walk from the high rise hotels.

When we arrived our waitress told us she had put in an order of their local pancake appetizer. It was a unique and tasty preparation of a corn and wheat flour cake served with an onion and vinegar relish. This started our evening nicely, but the main courses were very good as well. Our party enjoyed a combination of different... More

After reading the Tripadvisor reviews we decided to give this place a try. This was a huge mistake. The service was slow and the food was subpar and overpriced. We will not eat here on our next trip to Aruba.

Aruban food generally is delicious...and while this place was good, it did not live up to the hype at all. The food was very average. I'm also not sure what happened, but it took about an hour for our food to come...and there were only about 9 other people in the restaurant! The one nice thing is that it is... More

We were walking around the food places in Palm Plaza. We looked at menus and prices. The menu for this restaurant was offering Aruban cuisienne at reasonable prices. We tried it with no reservation on a Thursday night. Excellent service. Terrific food. We'll go again.

We had a very lovely lunch here during one of our excursions around the island. The service was great, the food was tasty and the decor of the restaurant is quite warm and pleasing. Recommended.

Amazing dishes, There is nothing to be left out in that menu. Do go for the Funchi Hasa with cheese, and the Grouper was on it's top.
