We had read many great reviews regarding Kamini`s home cooking. But what set this experience apart from any other is the hospitality we received. Kamini is a character on her own. Strong willed and tenacious, she shared many inspirational stories with us while preparing her delicious meal. She was even generous to share her secret recipe for her Chicken soup... More

Based on the review from trip advisor, I contacted Kamini via facebook. I received a quick response and my husband and I were invited to her house. Oh my, the food was so wonderful, we had goat curry, fish curry, stir fry broccoli, red bean and sausage, roti and rice. The food was amazing. Everything was prepared so fresh and... More

My wife and I contacted Ms. Kamini and asked if we could come out for dinner. Ms. Kamini graciously invited us to her house and prepared a fantastic meal. The dinner began with a bowl of chicken soup, but just the name chicken soup did not do this just. This was the best bowl of chicken soup that I have... More

If you want the best food from the nicest people, this is the place. Kamini will always greet you with a big smile and treat you with an open heart. The food is so good, I have been known to call ahead from the airplane while taxiing to the gate. Enough said, it is a bucket list item.

Good Morning Carol I am really sorry that Costa Riba was closed on your arrival and that we did not get the opportunity to meet each other. The building was sold and I had to move. I am relocating to a new location soon, Thank you. Kamini More

The curry fish was excellent--as were the side items. This place is worth the effort to go there even if you're not going to Baby Beach. Just sit down with the owner, Kamini, tell her what you like, and she will go prepare a meal suited to your likes and interests. As the majority of reviews have suggested, she is... More

The amazing family that owns this island gem made our Aruba vacation very special. We treated as if we were family too! I will never forget my experience and the wonderful, incredibly talented family that owns this authentic hot spot! Some of the best food we have ever had, and were from Louisiana so I would say we eat well... More
