Fantastic Food and Service. Most people like to sit out by the pool - but we had a party of 6 and sat inside this historic building and felt like we had a private party! Recomend anything cooked on the stone!! Wonderful atmosphere!

The venue is very romantic as we were set around an outdoor pool. I had the triple grill served on a hot stone and my husband had the steak a la mafia. Both were delicious! Service was pretty good, but our waiter seemed to disappear halfway through and a variety of other people waited on us.

This 150 year old former house has seating around a pool area. It is surrounded by pretty trees and greens and even some aloe plants! Beautiful! The appetizers were by far the best I've had all week. We ordered the Italian meats, which also came with olives, little pieces of crunchy bread, and currant berries. The next appetizer we ordered... More

If you are looking for a extremely romantic place to eat in Aruba, Papiamento is a must !!! Set in an old farm house, outdoor seating and the food is excellent. This place has been a family favorite for almost 25 years. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service.

The ambiance at Papiamento cannot be beat. The food was incredible and the local waiters were delightful. Ask for a tour of the wine cellar and the home. Sit at the bar for an after dinner drink and order their home made liquor. An enjoyable experience!

Our dining experience at Papiamento was among the best we've had....anywhere. The setting, dining poolside under the canopy of a huge tree is so romantic. The service was friendly and attentive. Our meal was wonderful. I had "The Mermaid", wahoo and shrimp served on a hot stone. My husband had a steak with Gorgonzola butter. Our evening was capped off... More

The place is like an Oasis of relaxation, the trees surrounding the tables and the pool in the middle of the patio gives a nice touch. Reminded me of Arab Garden with water flooding and nature everywhere. the wine list is really extensive. specially considering the limitations of this small island, i was missing some better champagnes but still nice...

The physical setting and atmosphere at Papiamento was indeed impressive and even romantic, set in a historical family dwelling with a lush, heavily planted garden where many of the tables (all two tops) were placed around a lovely pool. As a matter of fact we went there because our friends had been impressed by its ads in one of the... More
