My husband and I found this restaurant at the beginning our trip. The hostess Varella and her mom (the executive chef) made us feel like family. The food and hospitality were excellent. I had the stewed beef, which melted in my mouth, the beef was so tender. The fried pancake is a nice alternative to bread, very tasty. If you love fish, you must try the grouper. You will not be disappointed!! We enjoyed the food so much that we went to Queen's four times for dinner during our trip. This restaurant is a hidden jem!!

We left our all inclusive resort to try some of the local cuisine in Aruba. The Queen's is near the port for cruise ships and just south of the main "jewerly" strip in downtown Oranjestad. The decorations are simple, but nice.

We could not believe how delicious the appetizers, drinks, and main courses were! We are getting ready to head there again for the second time this trip (to actually pay for food) because it is so good!

The red snapper in garlic cream sauce is to die for, as well as the polenta with gouda cheese appetizer. You do not need to be adventurous to enjoy the food at Queen's, it is all good. However, my husband is adventurous and had the stewed goat! Goat is not the leanest of meats in the world, but it is one of the most delicious!

All in all, the Queen's restaurant helped make our honeymoon one of the most memorable experiences of our trip!

My wife and I ate here twice during our week in Aruba and it is by far the best place we went to. The service is great, everyone that works there is very friendly. The food was excellent and the portions are generous. I highly reccomend eating here early in your trip because you will want to come back!
