Have been here twice (2 years in a row) and have been absolutely blown out of the water both times. Amazing ethnic food with a Dutch/Aruban spin. I ordered the sukade and it was cooked perfectly, as were the other dishes. Will be coming back...soon- thanks for the great experience!More

We were just amazed by our whole dining experience. Fantastic food and perfect service. Such a cute charming restaurant. My husband had the island grill and I had the surf and turf. This was our first (but not last) time here and we were just...blown away.More

We went here on the recommendation of a fellow holiday maker. The Service was very good as was the food. I had the Mushroom Gratin, followed by the chicken and vegetable curry, which was accompanied by rice and a naan bread. My husband had the...Mexican chicken soup to start, followed by Nasi Goreng which he also loved. The waitress was very helpful with making choices and offering go swap out anything we didn’t want included in the meal. All tasted very fresh and piping hot.More

Nice dinner, nice people, charming cottage. First time for dinner. We wanted a more local place, changing up our cuisine. Our server was warm, fun. And very helpful. It was a quiet evening, and enjoyable meal From poki bowl, to hamburger, to fish, to Aruban...goulash, all good! And the dessert!!!! Sorry I did not take pictures of the homemade baking! It was a positive dining experience. You can find anything from a light meal to a homemade local dinner.More

Loved this place. It was off the tourist path a bit but the food was amazing. Service was awesome and I will for sure be back. So many options for great meals and the prices were definitely reasonable. Awesome hidden gem.

Back from the Marketplace near the police station in Oranjestad. Beautiful building with very nice folks. We stopped in for desserts and were not disappointed. Apple pie with ice cream was great and the chocolate duet was also wonderful. They were so kind to order...us a taxi as we were leaving. Loved it.More

This was our third time at Bistro. The staff is amazing, and the food is very reasonably priced. We went 2x in 2 weeks and with tip, our meals totaled 40.00 and 47.00 each time. It located just past the center of town, two streets...inland. The best value restaurant on the island by far. It is worth a trip! Very diverse menu.More

I took my teenage boys for lunch while visiting Aruba. The restaurant is so charming, the food is out of this world and the service is friendly and warm. This is must visit!

My husband and I had dinner here several times during our stay in Aruba and we loved the place! I especially recommend the High Wine offer, where you get a bottle of wine and a huge selection of absolutely delicious tapas, specially made by the...Chef for you (you have to book it 1 day in advance). It’s fine dining (but the kind where you don’t leave feeling hungry) at an extremely reasonable price - 32$ pp. We always made reservations for the back garden, which is charming and fairytale-like. The staff was also a big plus for us: really nice, warm people, who are very good at their job!More

We happened into this little gem looking for a less expensive alternative since we had been dining at many of the lovely restaurants in Aruba after 2 weeks. Same day reservation was easily achieved in fb messenger for 2. Asked to be seated inside as...they do have air bit not cold just refreshing. Amiable atmosphere in this old Aruban home.We Ate simply ; husband had an burger topped with bacon and egg served with fries which was very good and I ordered fish which they said was grouper upon sending waitress back to ask. She didn’t know initially. It was topped with Brie which was an unusual combination with a full plate of mashed potato and sautéed green pepper. As I am not a pepper fan and the potatoes were heavy ,I might of liked rice and a different side.I wish they had the unicorn fish that night as I was anxious to try and they featured before and after our visit! Meal is priced in florins which I didn’t realize or I might of ordered differently. When the bill came , it was very reasonable with US dollars listed for the credit card.More

We eat here at least two times if not more during our 7 day stays. Very authentic menu that never disappoints. Actually could eat here every day. The staff is wonderful and the food is always prepared perfectly. Don't get me started on the desserts.
