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!

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.

Real authentic Aruban cuisine. I had my best meal in Aruba at this restaurant. The food was great and the service some of the best I've ever had in my life. 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
