Some excellent local food. Very friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We would (and did) recommend it to others!

We've been coming to Aruba for 7 years now, and this is our go-to for authentic Aruban cuisine. You don't come here if you're in a hurry - you come here to get to know the island, share stories with the staff, and savor a great meal for 2 hours. I prefer the Keeshi Yena. Others ordered the stewed goat,... More

We wanted Authentic arubian food. The old cunucu house is the place to go. We ordered 7 plates of food and they were all great. My favorite was the tender goat meat with such great flavor. I was slightly suspicious of goat, but we wanted to try it and it was so good. The price was one of the best... More

This is an out of the way but close to the High Rises Restaurant. It is a small quaint bar, rustic, but so friendly. The restaurant is small, maybe 12 tables sitting no more than six on some and two on others. The atmosphere was quaint, but they need to get rid of the Christmas looking decorations. they were a...

This restaurant was a little off the beaten path. The restaurant is a short walk from the Radisson, down a local street. At first we though we were lost, but if you keep walking, it is at the end of the street. There are a few dogs around the area from the homeowners. I don't think they are dangerous but... More

My wife and I recently ate at the Old Cunucu House in Aruba. We purposely went there for the food and the Frank Sinatra impersonator. We found both were not up to par. We knew were we going to have to pay $15 for the Frank Sinatra guy. He was very personable but he was not a very good singer.... More

We were blown away by how many American chain restaurants dominate the scene in Palm Beach. We were adamant to avoid all of them. We didn't travel so far to have chain food! The Old Cunucu House came up in the Aruba iPhone app and had good reviews. We walked from the Radisson. It's off the beaten path in a... More
