If you only like 5 star tourist type restaurants, this is not for you. If you like five star food and experience local culture and food, do not miss the Old Cunucu House. My friend got the seafood platter and loved it. I got the Keeshi yens which didn't sound that great to me with the odd ingredients, but Oh... More

First off let me say, if your looking for Old Cunucu House, turn at the sign then go to the end of the road. The business on the corner is NOT Old Cunucu house. We went then during our weeklong stay and had heard very good things about the place and rightly so, it's nestled in a very cozy little... More

We took my family here a few days before our wedding at the Renaissance. My parents, who are generally very critical of anything not cooked by mom, was actually blown away by the marinated goat. In fact, they even later came back with the rest of my family and ordered out so they could eat it at home. I would... More

My husband and I ate here while on our honeymoon. It's a little off the beaten path, so make sure you get good directions beforehand. The menu is all about traditional Aruban dishes. We tried the goat stew and conch and both were very good. At the beginning the service was great and everyone was very friendly, but at the... More

Delicious beyond words, from me and my two guests, all eating different meals. Very nice interior not expected as I drove up. Very nice and personal service, wasn't crowded the night we were there. Excellent value.

We tried this restaurant this visit and specifically went on the night with the Frank Sinatra entertainer. Unfortunately, that was a mistake. Although he was a nice man, his singing left much to be desired. Definitely not entertaining. Also quite loud for the small room. The staff at the restaurant were very welcoming and courteous. The food was adequate but... More

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.
