Really good food

The atmosphere of this restaurant is second to none .... The staff and owners are very friendly and accommodating and above all, the food is very well prepared and flavorful. A reservation should be considered, as the restaurant is fairly busy.

Concierge at the Marriott suggested this place for a taste of local food. We though we would try it out. We sat outside on a great evening. Overall, service was a bit slow especially when it came time to get the check. We did enjoy the food. We had the codfish grandma style and their chicken specialty with as well... More

I can be very short, the place was lovely, the rest a mess. Bad food. A bowl of bones and fat was supposed to be goatstew, the fish much to salty,and a plate with minsed chicken coocked in cheese fat. The wine was a disgrace for his price and the service was poor. At the end, a enormous bill and... More

I am forced to put all aruba restaurants on a higher level than normal due to knowing how good the food can be here after 20+ years. The food is average, really nothing special in terms of taste and quality. There are some really authentic and local dishes on the menu. I had the iguana soup (a special and a... More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It is well off the main strip however and we would advise driving there. Walking there at night puts you going down an unlit road with numerous roaming dogs.

We tried a variety of plates off the menue. The stewed goat was absolutely excellent and would order it again. Locals dine here and they are very friendly and welcoming. Had a great time!

Delicious authentic food, great service, and an awesome setting. The outdoor patio is beautiful, strung with lights, but eating in the house is awesome too. You can't go wrong if you want to experience local food.

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
