Set in an old farm house, this restaurant delivers great atmosphere and food! If available, the Iguana soup is a must try!! The staff were wonderful as was the food!

Away from the hustle and bustle of the hotels. Unique island food with some dishes that aren't far what we are used to in the USA. I've tried barracuda, conch, and iguana soup. I have also had the red snapper and fried calamari... very quaint restaurant in the kiddle.of a quiet neighborhood not far from the hotels. About $ 25... More

We had a wonderful meal of local specialties at a lovely local house come restaurant. One of the oldest ad still has charming courtyard seating. We loved everything we tried; standard fare also available. The staff was kind and helpful especially about local selections. Casual atmosphere; we walked from the high rise hotel area. A must.

We went for dinner. The food was wonderful. Everything was so tasty. Our waitress, Jasmine, was so friendly and funny and sociable. Best waitress ever.

We wanted to try some local dishes and a local pointed us here. We tried the Iguana soup, which actually tastes quite good. All the meals were tasty and filled us up. They have classic rock playing softly and a comforting atmosphere. There is outdoor seating and a bar, or air conditioned indoor seating. The indoor seating is not super... More

We absolutely loved our visit to Old Cunucu House for dinner. We were looking for a restaurant that served traditional Aruban cuisine (and the legendary iguana soup that we'd been hearing about). Every local we asked suggested this restaurant so we had to give it a try. It turned out to be a truly delightful evening! The food was delicious... More

We came late for lunch were greeted by Ian ( a family member) and given a private air conditioned room at a round family table. I tried each of the meals we ordered from the goat stew and barracuda to the Keshi yena. We will definitely come here again and highly recommend it to all. We have a member of... More

We looked at the menu and looked reasonable prices for Aruba dining! Setting lovely and rustic! Four of us dined there, one had conch and was chewy, the rest of the three people had ok dishes! None of us ordered water but they poured it out and then charged 10 dollars for what we did not drink! We all had... More

Our family was on Aruba for one day (Carnival Cruise), and we took a taxi tour around the island. When it came time for lunch, we asked the driver where he'd go for dinner/lunch and we ended up at the Old Cunucu House (the driver had just taken his wife there the week before). Well, I am glad we did... More

The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant since we were interested in a local Aruban dinner. There were 9 of us & everyone loved the food. The restaurant is in a 150 year old house with outdoor in indoor air conditioned, dining spaces. Charming setting, reasonably priced & great staff! A must for anyone for dinner!
