We ate at the original Queen's 5 yrs ago a month after it opened, after a local recommended it. It has grown up! Moved to a new location, gotten more sophisticated, but the food is still great! Service is still very attentive and it is still reasonably priced. It is now on the second floor of the Palm Beach Mall,... More

Something is missing in this place - I think it is the good food and this shows when there are not many customers. We had a variety of local foods what we were disappointed by the quality and the taste. Service was trying to please as much as they could but it did not make up for mediocre food served.

Just happen to find this place on the first floor while strolling through the plaza. Was curious about the Keshi Yeena dish and the goat meat dish. Both were great tastings.

We met a woman on the beach our first day in Aruba and she recommended Queen's. We stopped in that night for dinner. The staff was extremely friendly. We started with calamari and had Grandma's beef stew and the BBQ platter. The food was excellent! Our favorite by far was the potatoes they served with each dish.

Just left this restaurant, the food was fantastic. We had fish cakes, calamari, and fish soup to start, and BBQ, stew goat, and the Red Snapper for dinner. Everything was great! Especially the potatoes that comes with every meal :) Drinks were great as well.The staff was extremely friendly and so kind, and the owner was super nice. Can't wait... More

We went to the restaurant on August 10th in search of finding the taste of an Arubian plate... We found that and much more. The place was quiet, fresh, and the waiters were very attentive. In fact, I was surprised by how the waiter would fill up my glass of water every time I drank a zip. I was unsure... More

Traditional food from both Aruba and Holland served together in a surprisingly modern blend. Essentially really good fusion food! This restaurant from what I learned is family owned and operated and you can see and taste that in the food, a lot of love and time goes into their food and presentation. This restaurant is on the more formal side... More

food was good and service was also good. We wanted to try authentic Aruban food. Our server took to time to tell us about authentic Aruban food, it's history and etc... which helped us decide what to select. We were pleased with our selection. The prices was also nice.
