Welcome to the house of fools with owner Pauly (Fool #1) and Chef Bas (Fool #2). Reservations must be made months in advance and the show starts at 7, so don't be late and don't expect to sit inside and enjoy cocktails in advance (bring your own flask if you want a pre-event cocktail). Don't be surprised to find the... More

Two fools, 4th time there and they haven't missed a beat with new chef Bas. One of the best dining experiences you will have on the island. Relaxed, casual, social and charming, you will enjoy every moment of your evening. Beginning with meeting the other guests on the back patio, never more than 14-16 max, you feel like guests at...

This is our second experience at a gourmet restaurant dining experience in Aruba (the first being "Carte Blanche" two years ago). We had to get reservations last fall for our October dinner. Owner Paulie and chef Bas go out of their way for their small group of guests (12 or fewer) to have a fabulous eating experience. Your seven p.m.... More

The highlight of our trip every year to Aruba is our evening at 2 FOOLS and a BULL. We have celebrated our anniversary there for the last 4 years and this year, we were privileged to celebrate 2 nights in a row. We always feel that we are attending a private dinner with friends, even though we didn't know them... More

When you dine at 2 Fools and a Bull don't plan anything else for the evening. In addition to the best food prepared by experts you will receive an entertaining and informative evening that lasts for hours. Everything starts at 7:00 PM sharp with a champagne toast and some friendly conversation. You will be dining with approximately 16 people around... More

Paulie was a fantastic host! He was quick witted and friendly. He made you feel as if you were old friends getting together for a fun evening of food & drink. At times I laughed so hard that my sides hurt. Bas was equally as friendly, and a very skilled chef. All of his selections were spot on! I have... More

We visited 2 Fools and a Bull in July to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was a fantastic and unique experience. We were made to feel welcome by the hosts with champagne in the conservatory where we were encouraged to mingle with our fellow guests. Is was unique as there were a limited number of diners allowing a more intimate... More

From beginning to end, 4 hrs later, each moment is a culinary experience which will delight your palate. Bas has created dishes which are pleasing to the eye and even more satisfying to the tastebuds. Paul and Bas have created a truly unique dining adventure. You need to be open to meeting new people and experiencing new tastes. I promise... More

This was one of the best dining experiences my husband and I have ever had and we are big foodies! Paulie, the MC for the evening and your sommelier, made the evening perfect and the Chef was outstanding in his creative menu and perfect execution of courses. This restaurant is not for those who want a quiet romantic dinner for... More
