We went to the Old Cunucu House for dinner and were not at all disappiinted. I started off with fried calamari and it was served hot, lightly battered with a deliciously spiced sauce. I then had their Aruban house chicken dish...I cant pronunce the name, but it was very good. My wife had a caeser salad to start which she... More

Excellent service, but food was really bad!!! Seafood was foul, with the calamari being fried in really old oil and the Red Snapper tasting as if it had been treated with chlorine. Never again!!!

My husband and I were staying in a rental nearby and came here twice during our stay. This restaurant is clean, charming, and has the ambiance we look for during an island vacation. The food was stellar. We were both big fans of the stewed goat with very tender meat in a delicious sauce. Just a word of caution- there... More

Good food. My wife and I both enjoyed our meals. Have some neat cocktails too. Quaint little place off the main drag. Service was only so-so.. Hence the 4 stars and not 5.

Indoor or out dining, nice & authentic Aruban atmosphere. Terrific food, large portions, reasonable pricing. We'll return soon.

Recommended by the concierge and was a little reluctant to go in after having a difficult time finding. There was only one other family there but a very welcoming hostess invited us in. The cerveiche was wonderful. It's usually made with squid and grouper, but she had mine made w/o the squid. So accommodating my husband and I had a... More

We were there on a very busy night and it wasn't that great. Some items on the menu were not available. We got seated at a bad out of the way corner table. Service was okay but slow due to the large private party they were having in a back room/deck. Food was just okay - nothing special and didn't... More

I try to be fair when I do a review because other people like to read about experiences from non pro critics, so here goes. We had reservations for 7 pm. We arrived about 15 minutes early and our friends who were site seeing and shopping in the down area of Oranjstead arrived at 7. My wife and I were... More

Okay anywhere I go I want to eat local. Why would anybody go to Paris just to eat at Tony Roma's?. Friends who dined at the Old Cunucu House the evening before and liked it felt it might satisfy our need for local. On some level it did and it made us realize we have to be more clear when... More
