Great food!

We wanted to try the local cuisine for lunch, and found this place on trip advisor. It is not located near tourists attractions, so a taxi or own car is necessary. I had a local traditional dish called Keeshi Yena, and it was so good the first thing I did when I got back to the hotel was to... read more

A taxi driver recommended for local arubian cuisine. The staff were very accommodating and the ambiance of a traditional home now restaurant was very appealing. The seafood ceviche starter was one of the best I have ever tasted. Even better than my own! I would return just for that. The traditional arubian flat bread was excellent. We also had the... More

Each time we visit Aruba we go to visit the old cunucu house. If you really want to taste Aruban food you need to go there: authentic food for a very fair price. No pretentious food or personnel. Visiting this restaurant makes you feel like you are visiting the true Aruba and not only a sunny island. I love it

We've been here many times before, but every visit to Aruba this place is a MUST go for us. The traditional Aruban food is delicious and the atmosphere very pleasant!

We went twice! The pumpkin soup is awesome! Their grouper dis was the best on the island. On second visit, we had goat and a chicken dish that were good, but not to the level of perfection delivered on their grouper dish.

Not sure if its because of what we ordered. Had the fried shrimp plate. Basically had like 4 coconut friend shrimp, with the hardest white rice and oldest steam vegetables I'd seen in a while. Seriously.. these shrimp are like something you get at a fast food restaurant in the US for $10. I paid $27. Please don't remind me..... More

Went here to see Sinatra show. The singer was good, but the food was not good. Plus the service was very bad. I had to search for the waiter to get the check and they.even charge for a glass of water. The couple sitting next to us were served less and were overcharged.

We dined here in Jan 2016 on a typically gorgeous Aruban evening. The restaurant is housed in a former residence with tile floors, local artwork, very ambient! We richly enjoyed the Fiesta Arubiano - a platter of fish cakes, meatballs, pastechi and calamari with creole sauce, along with Red Snapper, outstanding! Our server was cordial enough to call a taxi... More

We visit Aruba for 2 weeks each year, and we were eagerly anticipating visiting OCH again this year, after we had 3 wonderful visits last year when we were overjoyed with the friendly owner/manager, the good food and relative values at the time. This time we were totally let-down and disappointed, to the point where we decided not to go... More

We went to this restaurant on the advice of our tour guide who goes there with his family. We weren't disappointed. This is a romantic and quaint restaurant in a 150 year old farmhouse. The food is good and they offered local cuisine.
