Great Hot Stone Cooked Dinner

May wife and I had dinner at Papiamento on July 15, 2015. This was a beautiful outside dining experience. As for a pool side table, this is very romantic to go with the very nice soft live entertainment. The overall atmosphere and lighting very nice. We enjoyed some very good escargot and dined on... read more

Second time here visited last year and it was great, This year they gave us a corner table (six people) and even though many tables are under trees because it's outdoors there was something wrong with this one, droppings from creatures in the trees came down on us throughout the night and stupid me where I usually would get up...

I've been to Aruba 21 times and Papiamento is always on my list of restaurants to enjoy. This place is absolutely beautiful! The tables surround a lovely pool and beautiful trees shimmering in tiny lights. I mean what more can you ask for! Service and food are very good. The cosmos here are just wonderful. It all adds up to... More

Lovely ambience with tables around a pool - Good food - but don't order the Steak on a stone - What we discovered is that it comes to you cooking on a hot stone which you must continue to cook to your liking - sounded like fun - but it was so dark with just a small candle burning on... More

We were looking forward for outstanding / out of this world memorable food experience. We are foodies and enjoy food from around the world. Although the service we received was outstanding, I...

We had high hopes for this restaurant, but the service was awful. No one ever came around to assist us or even fill our water glasses. It seems to have a culture where every waiter helps any table so we never knew who was our waiter. We finally complained and a nice young man named, Christian helped us however by... More

What drew me to this establishment was the aroma coming along with the wind. There is always wind in Aruba so it was a good thing. This restaurant also has Wi-Fi so it makes it great to let your friends see what you are seeing on social media. This was a great meal for Honeymoon. I had the best Seafood... More

Went to Papiamento restaurant in Aruba very romantic white tablecloths surrounded by a pool in an old Aruban home, lights hanging from trees and the food was fantastic also. It is out of the way not near the high rise worth the cab ride.
