My family of five enjoyed a night out at the Old Cunucu house. The setting is great and it is a short distance from the Palm beach area. We sat outside on the patio area which was very quaint and there was live music on Friday night. The service was friendly, and Corey from Canada gave us the story of... More

I ended up eating here several times. I loved the Keshi Yena, the Cabrito Stoba, Calco Stoba, Tres Leches Cake, Cashew Colada. The staff were quick to give excellent advice about anything I asked. They are open for lunch and dinner. They have inside and outside dining. Inside dining has the extra pleasure of air conditioning.

The night I went there was live music which was also very good. The atmosphere of this old farm house turned restaurant is friendly and comfortable, so you feel... More

Old Cunucu house is traditional Aruba dining. The service is excellent and the food exquisite. We had the iguana soup, shrimp dish and the stewed goat which were all out of this world. It isn't too far from the main strip of hotels, Hyatt, Radisson, Riu or Occidental so please make the time to have dinner here at least once... More

Local menu restaurant was expecting more but it was ok in comparison to others we went to. My hubby was disappointed with his main course. I enjoyed mines the red snapper was good. I was not happy with the local cornmeal pancake had better at other local restaurant.

If you are in Aruba and would like to try original island cuisine then the Old Cunucu House is a good choice. This restaurant is within walking distance of high rise hotels and is just as it says an old house and in a residential neighborhood. They have both inside and outside dining. The food is fresh and interesting. We... More

Authentic old house with friendly staff and nice atmosphere but the food was so so. Service was slow and food a bit bland. We have been there several times over the past 10 years but this time the quality was not the same.
