My husband and I booked this evening of dinner & music prior to our arrival. We looked forward to trying an authentic Arubian restaurant and finding one with some Sinatra along with it really intrigued us. The restaurant is in a delightful Arubian home with a very extensive Menu. I opted for a local dish and ordered Keeshie Yenna. To... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local who said it is the best place for real Aruban cooking. Our meal was excellent, and our waitress Jasmine was wonderful. If you want to have a real traditional island meal, this is the place to go!

If you like to experience local food, this is the place to go in Aruba. A menu that includes iguana soup and conch fricasee can't be passed up. Plenty of standard choices for those not interested in local food. A bar menu would be a nice addition here though.

We visited this restaurant twice on our 2 1/2 week vacation. Very good food and attentive staff. We had the Kesha Yeni (sp) and it was very good. Pumpkin soup was delish. We also went to the Frank Sinatra show and had a very good time. We will see you next year!

A very cute and amiable setting for a quiet dinner. Old Canucu house nurtures home grown aruban spirit with great emphasis on local food grown by the brothers who own the restaurant. The cashew liquer is unique and tasty. Service is earnest and does its best to be friendly and accomodate each diner. Stick to the traditional dishes - stoba... More

Maybe it was the drinks, maybe it was the music, maybe it was the food or maybe it was the service. Actually, it was all four of those reasons that caused me to fall in love with the Old Cunucu House Restaurant in Aruba. We were not even planning to eat here until our tour guide Madi (from Madi Magical... More

The reviews were good and that led me here. I was disappointed overall. The special stuffed cheese dish was nothing special. The catch of the day was offered "pan fried or broiled". Broiled sounded boring and the server agreed that pan fried was better. The fish was not pan fried. It was breaded and deep fried. The sides were underwhelming...rice... More

Ambiance was delightful. Service is great and very personal. Food was wonderful and fresh. The "house" itself with its rich history makes it very worthwhile. The floors are just beautiful...hand painted marble. Corey the manager shared much about the island as,well as the house. Jasmine the waitress personalized our order and service. We were quite comfortable for over two hours.
