The Old Cunucu House with the Aruba Sinatra Show

We had a wonderful dinner and fine, supberb entertainment by Fred DeJong with this Aruba Sinatra Dinner show. This was our third time seeing him entertain and we loved his performance just as much this time as the others. Make sure to dine her and see his show.

We ate here twice during our Aruba vacation. Initially, we were surprised by many empty tables on a weekend seating indoors. The food was good-excellent, especially my wife's grilled wahoo--we were given free wine coupons so we later returned for a mid-week visit; this time the fish was over-cooked and extremely dry which was disappointing. Turnout was again light which... More

We wanted to like this place and enjoy local Aruban food. The restaurant is in a residential area and is open air and cozy. Unfortunately the food was not good and took forever to arrive. We joked about driving over to the nearby KFC for some popcorn chicken. The Aruban sampler of appetizers were cold and greasy. Empanada was ok.... More

We chose this place in an effort to experience real island cuisine. Located near the high rise section, this place had real charm with indoor and outdoor seating. Decorated like a backyard party with canopy and dim lights. Staff was friendly and welcoming. They also featured a young singer who played keyboard and sang a mix of familiar songs. Also,... More

Old Cunucu House is another fine example of excellent Aruban dining off the beaten path. What makes this place unique is its numerous cocktail offerings featuring Cashew liquor (yes, Cashews!). You can order a Cashewpolitan, Cashew colada, amongst others, and even take a bottle home with you for a modest sum. In addition to its "nutty" twist on classic cocktails,... More

The best kept secret in Aruba! Not easy to find and not exactly a tourist hotspot but the people are outstanding and so is the food. We have been back their three times and we can't say enough about it.

Absolutely delicious seafood in a beautiful setting a short drive from Palm Beach. The best meal we had in Aruba - and we had lots of great ones!

We went for the dinner and Sinatra show. Some outside seating was available, but we were seated inside for the show. There was no one in the whole place and it has a large capacity for seating; that was the fiest tip off. We were there along with perhaps 5 other parties for the show in a back room. Food... More

This restaurant was recommended for their Arubian specialty dish Keeshi Yena. It is baked chicken, onions, peppers, celery, green olives, raisins, cashew nuts and gouda cheese dish that was really good. It was $19 and good size portion. The service was good. The old farm house was very cute with some great art work on display. Great evening.

Staff at Manchebo suggested we try this for a true taste of Aruba. It was a short cab ride away, and is located in the middle of a neighborhood. It is located in a house. They have indoor seating but I recommend you eat outside. The staff is VERY nice. The service is on "island time" but not too slow.... More
