Lovely Dining experience!

Wow! Papiamento's setting is absolute perfection. We sat adjacent to the pool, under a beautifully lit old tree, in the courtyard of the gracious 150 year old Manor house.

The food was mediocre, the ambience infringed by a couple celebrating their vow renewals. Disruptive and embarrassing.

The restaurant is an old home converted into luxurious restaurant. It is like stepping into a hidden oasis around a pool. The staff is so nice and courteous, attending to your needs before you know you have them! Dinner was divine...not a crumb left.

The restaurant is a house. Very beautiful atmosphere. Most tables are set up outside, around the in-ground pool. There are also tables inside the house. Menu was pretty big and very diverse. Delicious but a little expensive. We didn't mind because of the experience.

Tried this place on incredible recommendations from tourists and locals. It is an absolute beautiful experience to have a drink or two and dine. If you go, have your reservations for 6:30pm and ask for a table by the pool. This so you can catch the sunset. This is an old mansion, with a cute outdoor dining area. Very romantic.... More

ambiance was lovely, food was pretty good, but service was awful, even though there was an abundance of wait staff walking around. we had to ask for our water to be refilled. we sat for 20 minutes after our plates were cleared and no one came to ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. after 25 minutes my husband finally...

When visiting Aruba it is sometimes difficult not to choose a restaurant on their beautiful beaches. Papiamento makes that decision an easy one. Located inland in a 175+ year old Aruban Manor House, Papiamento is elegant dining. From the tables that surround the pool, to the ones located under 100 year old trees, Papiamento gives you a beautiful oasis in... More

We went for dinner last evening. As a family who dines out often we all agreed that we have never experienced such a wonderful atmosphere. This place is beautiful from the environment to the live guitar player. Service impeccable. Hot stone dinner a must. Don't miss this while on the beautiful island of Aruba! We didn't want to leave our... More

Set in a 100+ year old mansion, with tables around a pool. Beautiful setting, great food, and fun to walk through the house after our meal which was more like a museum. Service was good, a bit unusual in that I'm not sure who our server was. We had many staff members get drinks, take orders and deliver food. But... More
