Maybe my expectations were set too high, due to all the rave reviews, but I didn't think it lived up to the hype. The food was excellent, I'll agree to that. Hats off to the chef! But I thought it was overpriced, and I didn't find "Fool #1" to be all that entertaining. Just being honest here, even though I... More

If your looking for gastronomic delight coupled with entertaining fun, this is is the place. If you are privileged enough to join Pauly and Bas (2 fools) you will definitely be in for a treat. Don't have enough words to describe the very pleasant evening they afforded our group. 12 people at our dinner party and not one negative comment.... More

Your taste buds will be dancing as you mix and mingle with a very exclusive and small group of guest. The experience is the best I’ve had on the island in five years of traveling to Aruba. The only way to describe it is total immersion. It starts off with a champagne meet and greet and quickly turns in to... More

Wow. What an amazing night. The fools were absolutely incredible. Beyond the utterly tremendous 5 course meal was an unbelievable dining experience. From start to finish they offered an amazing night that led to great food and great new friends. The small, intimate seating arrangement allows for a great environment that leaves you almost no choice but to befriend your... More

Simple concept, restaurant that caters to just 13 (or so) people who sit at a chef's table. "Pauly" is your host and sommelier for the evening, "Bas" cooks the food. The dinner was quite good, and the wine pairings were exceptional. Reasonable at about $300 for two of us, before tip. We met some very nice fellow guests, mingled and... More

Be prepared to laugh and dine. Paul and Bas not only deliver the highest quality, delicious, imaginative meal but I thoroughly enjoyed the "floor show" as well. While Bas cooks an amazing series of courses, Paul entertains with stories and patter and a bunch of "bull". He also does excellent wine pairings with several choices for each course. Every night...

From the moment you are greeted by your host, Pauly, until the last bite of the most delicious menu from Bas, you wll be entranced by one of the most entertaining and delicious dining experiences found around the world. Not your typical restaurant, but more of an intimate dinner party amongst new found friends. From the moment you arrive, you... More
