Off the beaten path, but beautiful outdoor (covered) bar & restaurant, run by young, energetic staff. REASONABLE prices - semi-self service. Go there!

Food was delicous and reasonably priced, atmosphere is awesome..You place your order on a check list and bring up to the bar and they have a beeper that goes off when your food is ready and you go up and get it...The wait staff bring you drinks and water...

Certainly a gem! The owner and staff were great! Best Sangria and wonderful food! My husband got the snitzel twice in one week and the grouper was great! Plenty to eat and doesn't break your wallet. Don't let self serve deter you, it's just a concept you aren't use to. Go you won't regret it!

Found PamPam by accident and loved the food and ambience. When my wife and I saw it was self-serve, we thought buffet, but not the case. As others said you order and get a pager and pick up food at bar. Lub and his staff are great and will explain everything on the menu and how they operate. Best homemade... More

This place is by far one of our favourite Aruban Restaurants. It is open 7 days a week, all day and you really don't need reservations. The food is well prepared and with outstanding value. Understand that you need to seat yourself and order using paper and pencils supplied and pick up your own food, returning empty plates. The ambiance... More

An unusual place - order by number with help from the servers. Pick the food up at the counter when it's ready. But having said this, this is not an every day restaurant. The food is of high quality and they have just taken a different service model. There was a special of the local fish and chips that was... More

If you are looking for a local place, then Pam Pam is for you.. first of all it doesn't have "typical wait staff" they bring you water and give you a menu selection along with a pencil and you decide how to "build" your meal. After placing your order you are provided with a beeper that buzzes and lights up... More
