First visit to this Palm Beach restaurant located directly across from, in same building as, White Modern Cuisine. The focus at The Queens is squarely on their take on traditional Aruban and Caribbean fare. We found it to be a warm restaurant with nice ambience...More

Several locals told me to go here for a taste of Aruba. I loved the food here. Had a goat stew that melted in your mouth and a dish with Gouda cheese stuffed with chicken and raisins and olives. Fantastic flavors.

Overall reviews were high so we tried it, but portions were very tiny for $25+ an entree and it took well over 30 minutes for our entree to be served. Servers were very friendly and attentive, so no knock on them. The kitchen needs some...More

This was some of the best food I have ever eaten. The restaurant has GREAT food, wonderful service and ambiance but it's in the mall and you would not likely think this great cuisine would be located there. Two of the locals recommend it and...More

It's located on second floor in the mall, not first floor. The mall is off the Main Street where most restaurants are, so it's hard to find. The stews (beef and chicken) are pretty good, others are just ok. Not many diners, very quiet.

The Queen's Caribbean Restaurant has the best mojito that I've had - hands down. The food was also fantastic. It was a bit pricey, but overall, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
