Kamini's is our new Aruba favorite. Worth the ride, Kamini's sits past San Nicholas, just before the the big red anchor that marks the southern tip of the island. Kamini is a great hostess and is always on property making sure her guests are greeted...and well fed. The beer is ice cold, and the flavors of her food is off the charts. We always order the rotti, usually goat or shrimp. If she has fresh conch we hit that as well. If you like your food spicy, ask for Kamini's hot pepper spice. We hit this spot twice during our stay on the island, and seriously, wish we would have gone more.More

I visited aruba for a week and kaminis was by FAR the best food. I genuinely cant stop thinking about that chana and potato curry with roti. such an amazing flavor and a good price too. im vegetarian and so glad they had great options....even the lime juice was so good. Will definitely come back next time I visit. 10/10 recommend for anyone looking for a taste of Caribbean culture in aruba. Such a charming atmosphere too. And to think we found the place by accident looking for a quick bite to eat! Service was great, the waitress was very nice and we even got to take a picture with the owner at the end. Amazing!More

We came across this restaurant purely by chance on our tour of the island (by rental car - we highly recommend Amigo for this) and it just happened to be around lunch time. What a delight. We shared a large platter for the appetizer -...lots of fries, pork chops, chicken wings, strips etc and had a variety of pastas and curries for the main. All 5 of us were so full and everyone was delighted with their choice. However, the highlight of the meal was our server, Miriam. She was delightful and so attentive. 5 stars for Kamini’s and 6 stars for Miriam !!More

We loved this restaurant! The food and service were amazing. We even got to meet the super sweet owner who gave us a tour of the kitchen after our meal.

The portion sizes were huge. The taste was superb. The customer service was wonderful and heart-felt. Chef Kamini has created an atmosphere where you feel like you're getting a home cooked meal from an auntie that you never knew you had. You go in thinking...that you're ordering from a restaurant, and then she came to our table and talked with us for about 20 minutes. She shared her testimony, the Caribbean way to eat our dishes, and a bit of local history. We noticed that she had the same amount of care and contact with other tables too.More

We stopped at Kamini’s Kitchen for lunch after passing it several times on our way to/from Baby Beach. The food was fantastic and the staff were wonderful. We tried some of the recommendations of our server, curried goat and red snapper. They also had a...number of vegetarian options and the vegetarian curry stir fry was huge and delicious. The prices were inexpensive and they had a full bar.More

We did a little bit of research prior to coming to Kamini's Kitchen. Our family was at the resorts on the other side of the island and we wanted to visit San Nicolas and Baby Beach for the day. From San Nicolas, we took taxis.../ rental car to Kamini's Kitchen knowing the food would be good based on reading the reviews. What we didn't know was how amazing the service was, and how absolutely delightful Kamini and her husband were. After having by far the best lunch in Aruba (try the goat curry, red snapper, and coconut Ice Cream), Kamini introduced herself and had a very good discussion with us about the Island and gave us her amazing story. She insisted that her husband drive us to Baby Beach, and arranged for one of her friends to pick us up and take us back to our hotel, all the way a crossed the Island! This definitely was one of the major highlights of our trip, and will not forget the warm hospitality that we received from Kamini and her husband. Five stars all the way!!!More

My wife and I ate dinner at Kamini’s tonight. She had the Mushroom Chicken in Brown Sauce and I had the Red Snapper with fries. Plantains to share. All of it was fantastic! The staff (Miriam) was super friendly and fun to talk with. If...you’re in the Baby Beach area for lunch or dinner, we would highly recommend this open air delight. We’ll be going back for sure!More

My wife had Grouper and I had a whole Red Snapper. Nothing was spicy, just yummy. You can order either way. Karmini is super nice and her cooking is worth finding them!
