We have been coming to Aruba two times a year for ten years. This is the first time we have eaten here. It was the best food we have ever had. There is only one sitting and the menu is chosen by the owners. The chef Bas is friendly and an amazing cook . His partner Pauly serves you and... More

I must be honest and say that I really did not want to have dinner at Two Fools and a Bull - as a matter of fact, I fought VERY hard not to go - WOW, was I ever wrong! We are frequent visitors to Aruba and all our friends have dined here multiple times since they opened in February... More

Friday was our last night in Aruba until next year. We were so lucky to get our party of 4 in for our final dinner. What a great time we had! "Fool #1, aka Paul, is hilarious, makes you feel welcome immediately. Their "new" Chef, Bas, has incomparable culinary skills and created a meal we will remember until next August... More

From the moment you walk in, you're greeted as if you're having dinner at a friend's house. Champagne cocktails are followed by interaction with new friends, and paired with some of the best food on the island. Each dish is better than the last and the perfect portions leave you wanting more. And yet, you walk out feeling so stuffed... More

Two Fools and a Bull is essentially Aruba's version of a Michelin starred restaurant in New York City... without the pretension. In typical vacation style, it's laid back, you relax, you get drunk, you laugh, but the food and ambiance is seriously that good. This is hands down - the best dining experience on Aruba. My family and I went... More

This is a must have meal on the island. There are no disappointments from the start to the finish. Paul is top notch and the Chef is from another world. This is our second time and it was better then the first. The food and wine are outstanding, the outside is wonderful and atmosphere is so cool. In between courses... More

This was our 4th time at 2 Fools and a Bull and again it did not disappoint. Armed with a new chef, Bas, the food was wonderful and the wines simple fantastic. They never repeat the same menu for returnees, and they make sure you are covered if you don't eat meat. We wound up sharing the experience, our 36th... More

This place is just classic and an Aruban "must" when here. Paul's shtick is at its best when the crowd is into it, and Bus is a chef extraordinaire. You have to hit this place at least once, and when you do then you'll want to return again and again.

My wife and I have eaten and many amazing restaurants in both the US and Europe, both Michelin-starred and not. 2 Fools stands out as one of the most memorable. Fun dining, amazing food, and, if you're lucky, you'll meet some interesting people and make some new friends. If and when we go back to Aruba, we'll definitely be here... More
