We were told by many (including fellow travelers and even taxi drivers!) that the Old Cunucu House was the best place to find Keeshi Yena. If you're unfamiliar with the dish, our server, Ian, characterized it as "Aruba's answer to lasagne..." Made with gouda cheese, lots of chicken, spices, olives and some raisins, it was served in an oblong dish... More

Well, we wanted the $15 Frank Sinatra show to be good, but a Dutchman with a strong accent can only do so much. Caribbean food was okay but definitely not up there. $35 wine was good. Large portions. Restroom inside restaurant was broken so had to use outside (dark, empty courtyard) bathroom that was more like a house bathroom with... More

This restaurant was recommended by my husband co-worker. The food was great, the staff was very nice and the ambiance was warm and comfortable. They called us a cab when we were finish eating to take up back to our hotel which was very nice and appreciated. We will definitely go back again at our next visit.

This little gem of a restaurant came recommended by a local hotel bartender. It is home cooking at it's best. The stews (goat and beef) are unbelievable and the fish is incredibly fresh. Loved that this restaurant also provided so many gluten free options for my daughter. The best part was it's homey atmosphere as it is in a traditional... More

We were looking for an authentic local Aruba restaurant rather than just another nice one that could be in any city in the world. Old Cunucu House filled the bill perfectly. The staff was friendly and helpful, service was good, the decor colorful and fun, and the food was very tasty. We ate from the Restaurant Month menu (3 courses... More

We did not know about this place until it was recommended by a local - so glad that we came here. It is such a nice restaurant with authentic ambiance and great local art of sights from the island. The food was excellent! My wife had the snapper and I had the conch with creole sauce - phenomenal! I even... More

We were lucky enough to find Old Cunucu House on our first night in Aruba. We had tried to get into some of the local trendy restaurants, however, they were booked. Luckily, our cabdriver took us here, and, what a pleasant experience it was. It is situated in an old house with quite a lot of character. There is a... More

This food is the best!!!!! We love their stewed goat which is delicious! Jasmine is an awesome hostess and all of the staff is very tentative to all of the customers. Stewed goat is not the only delicious tasting foods: rice & beans (thanks to my husband's multiple request & now they have them:.)), pan-fried grouper, plantains, and so much... More
