Great Recommendation

My parents have been here many times and suggested we try it. What a great find. The owner is so friendly and makes you feel welcome. The food was wonderful. Will be back in a few years. May want to call before going to make sure they are open that day.

My husband and I always eat at Gasparito each year, but this time we brought with us friends who had never been there; they immediately became fans of this hidden gem, too. Service is excellent, and the owner visits each table and answers all questions about the menu and explains about the preparation of the food. His wife is also... More

It is ten minutes driving but far as Mars from the noisy places of Plam beach . Cosy tiny places when a serious gentlemen with a warm smile welcomed us saying they were waiting for us because it was late and his son is the chef would have cooked everything only upon orders. What to say more? Everything was delicious... More

The food here was excellent. The owner is also the server and he is very kind and entertaining(He tells a lot of riddles and stories!). The atmosphere is very inviting and intimate. A must try on the menu is the Keshi Yena, shredded chicken in a delicious sauce covered with Gouda cheese. I have eaten at some expensive and fine... More

Hands down, this meal is what I was looking for when I came to Aruba. The warm ravioli is amazing and has a sauce that will blow your mind. The gasparito chicken is simple yet scrumptious and the keshi yana is an Aruban cuisine that is so flavorful. The flan is a masterpiece. The atmosphere is cozy and Raymundo treats... More

This restaurant seems like it is set up in what used to be a house. It feels cozy and quaint and enjoyable. Our server was also the owner of the restaurant, which him and his son (the chef), run together. When we went, it was just the father son team running the whole place. The owner/our server was really nice... More

This is our favorite restaurant on Aruba. They have hands down the best Keshi Yena on the island, and the most entertaining waitstaff I have encountered. This year when we went the island winds were acting up so we were unable to sit outside in the lovely courtyard, but being inside turned out to be fun too. The restaurant staff... More

This family restaurant is very nicely kept by the owners; established in an old house of typical Dutch architecture and decorated with local art, gives it a relaxed and quiet environment. Talking with the tenants makes you quickly understand their love for cooking and their love for the island. And the food demonstrates this very well!!! Will definitely go back!... More
