Rated as one of the 3 best restaurants for local Aruban food, this was a unique experience. Within a house that is a few centuries old is this small restaurant (less than 2 dozen capacity) with paintings on the wall. We started with their famous Gasparito chicken prepared in special sauces The fresh fish dishes were equally well prepared and... More

We visited Gasparito on the advice of locals and were not disappointed. This restaurant offers authentic Aruban cuisine. We went with a large family group and were well taken care of. This family run restaurant offers great service and delicious food. I'd recommend one of the sampler plates; it gives you the opportunity to sample different items. Everything I had... More

5 of us went to dinner here for the Arubian food experience. Because it is such an intimate setting you must make reservations to ensure there will be seating. The owner Ramone (sp?) was just fantastic. There were 2 other people there and it was comfortable discussions between our tables more laughter than discussion actually. I am a basic eater... More

My husband and I had a wonderful, intimate dinner here. It is family owned, we chatted with the owner's son, Daniel, who is very passionate about food and the restaurant. After talking to him, I'm very excited to see what the future brings to this restaurant and what innovations he is able to incorporate into their business. I ordered the... More

My wife and I ate there one evening for dinner. The place is intimate and very quaint, with lots of local artwork on the walls. The owner and his son operate the restaurant and they keep it intimate, friendly and picturesque. According to my wife, this was a great opportunity to experience Aruban cuisine and learn some local history in... More

We love introducing this restaurant to our friends who have never eaten here because we love this native Aruban restaurant. My husband and I have been coming back here every year for at least the past ten years, and it gets better and better. We enjoy eating on the outside patio, as well as dining in the art gallery inside,... More

We had a great meal with all the personal touches of a family owned restaurant. Our host walked us through the menu, local history and must sees. We totally enjoyed his description of the family's plans for the property and sustainable agriculture. Order the local dishes; we tried all! But they had all the standard fare for less adventurous eaters.... More

One of our guests wanted to sample local Aruban fare so we took her to this family run - father and son- restaurant in quiet neighborhood. Not heavily advertised, and not heavily frequented, you did get nice personal service. We had a variety of dishes and everyone enjoyed their choices. There is an early bird special before 6:30 which we... More
