Jasmin, our server, was the best! She really took care of us! Food and the experience was awesome. Everything is fresh! Had the whole red snapper, iguana soup, AND coffee! You won't be disappointed! If you return, you get a free glass of wine!

Atmosphere, food, Mariachi band. The house is an authentic Aruban home with cross currents of air. Wonderful drinks and excellent service

Every time we go to Aruba we ask the locals where a good place to eat "local" food is. We were given The Old Cunucu House by our friend Edisto, a local. Our new friends we met at our hotel went with us for a true Aruban dining experience! Upon arrival we were greeted by owner Sam Lopez. Sam is... More

We have eaten there many times with different owners and must say that this was their best showing of all. Our waitress, jasmin, was friendly, helpful and funny. Main courses included coconut shrimp, fresh catch of the day which was grouper, veal escalope, and a chicken and tenderloin skewer. All were wonderful. Desserts included flan and tres leches and again... More

Situated in a residential area it is not too hard to find but walking back in the dark to the main road beware of the local's dogs. With only one party present when I arrived I thought maybe I had made a mistake but as the evening progressed the place slowly filled up with larger parties. Sat out in a... More

We were attracted to The Cunucu House by the Frank Sinatra show, which was very entertaining and really the only positive part of our dinner. We did not experience poor service, which seems to be a common complaint, probably because we were two of the 10 people that made it for dinner. The mixed drinks reminded me of my college... More

Everyone should go here to try gourmet Aruban food. But please don't be in a rush and expect to have fast food. Good food takes time and there is only one server. Be patient and you will get what you deserve!
