I knew we would have a special dinner but it turned out extraordinary! Papiamento was definitely a gorgeous setting around the pool, under the huge ficus trees, lanterns hanging everywhere. Personal service was exemplary. We started off with escargot and their homemade pâté which were beautifully presented. Local fruits adorned the plates - most I was not familiar with but... More

Delicious food, super nice staff and atmosphere. Pricy, but it is worth the expense, would recomend it and go back any time. Don't miss it if you go to Aruba

This was our 3rd visit to Papiamento in the last 6 years, and probably our best. The outdoor seating area was completely filled (with very few people sitting inside), and we got a table next to the pool. Quiet music was playing. I started with a stiff whiskey sour. The server was knowledgeable and helpful. We went with his recommendations... More

Sometimes I wonder if reviewers are eating at the same place. Altho I was a single I was given a table right next to the pool. Almost all of the people seated next to the pool were couples. There were no Mosquitos even though it had rained every evening I'd been there. The food was good and the service was... More

Amazing experience! Fishes were really fresh and the service was amazing. Ask the hotel to book for you, as the restaurant is one of the most visited in the Island.

Definitely our favorite restaurant in Aruba. Food is delicious and artfully prepared. Atmosphere is lovely. Sitting around the pool and looking at the stars can't be beat.

Unique restaurant in a neighborhood setting but once you are at you table you hardly notice that. Dining is outside, the weather was great so no issues there. It is under the trees next to an in ground pool. Service was very good, sometimes a little slow but that's better than being rushed. We had a crusted grouper which was... More

Fresh fish delicious, but service needs an upgrade. Entrees come with minute salad. Long wait before a waiter approached with menus. Much better menu last year, so a little disappointing.
