Wife and I visited for honeymoon dinner tonight to get some real Aruban food and were not disappointed. Owner greeted us at door and took personal care of us. Highly recommend the warm ravioli appetizer, and one of the special Aruban dishes. Thank you for your impressive hospitality, including the greeter kitty outside.

Should have known the meal would have been below average when we were the only car in the lot. It's a quaint family owned restaurant - owner is host and sever, son the chef. French onion soup was delicious but the meat was tough, and over cooked- haphazard presentation of a special- even the bread was flavor less. Cheesecake was... More

I really enjoyed my meal here... The restaurant is not like many of the restaurants in the high rise areas... It's like you are eating at someone's house, so the ambience may not be a fancy as other places, but the food and staff were wonderful. My son had the Gasparito Chicken and I had the Yemi (I think that's... More

Food was traditional Aruban home-cooked fare and was fantastic ~ Shrimp and mahi mahi perfectly cooked, wonderful spices and flavored in traditional Aruban dishes - keshi yana, Kerry Kerry, funchi, goat stew, etc....And the service is awesome -- the owner is wonderful at anticipating needs and tells entertaining and engaging stories....and being located in an...

A little difficult to find, follow the neon arrow to the Buccaneer and it is next door. Small family restaurant, personal attention by the owner. All food is individually cooked and prepared (real home cooking), we all thoroughly enjoyed what we had chosen and if we were not going home so soon we would definitely return.

Food alone may not have been 5 star on its own but the overall dining experience was great. The food is definitely good. Fish a tad overcooked, but our entire group enjoyed their meals. And the owner, Raymond, entertained us with his riddles. If you want a quiet romantic dinner he'll leave you alone but my family enjoyed his attention.... More

It is difficult to rate this restaurant because of its nature. It is not a high class fancy restaurant so it would be hard to call it excellent relative to some other restaurants on the island. However, this small family run establishment does an excellent job of what it is doing. It serves Aruban cuisine with all its flavours. The... More

Cozy family-owned restaurant that is a mini Art Gallery. There's the only fresh water well on the island right in front. Sit inside or outside. Service is friendly and good. Island cooking- they do fish, seafood, sauces really well. Goat stew is interesting also. Desserts lovely. Nice experience.

This was our second visit to this wonderful family owned restaurant. Normally, the owner will be you waiter. He was injured and couldn't be on his feet. His son was running things but is normally in the kitchen. I hope his father reads this. Your son is doing a wonderful job! The food was delicious! Our entire family loved it!... More

We went here 18 years ago and couldn't wait to see if it was still there. It is under new owners but the food and service is as wonderful as it was then. It is a historic location with the old water well that was used by people on this end of the island when people came to draw their... More
