A short walk or cab ride from the High Rise area (totally safe to walk, but is is dark; ignore the dogs, they're just noisy), this is the place where locals go to celebrate things like Christmas and New Years. If you walk, get directions from the hotel, look for the small handmade sign, don't wimp out, and head for the lights. You'll get the chance to walk through some cool neighborhoods, a rare chance to get a feel for a non-tourist Aruba. The house is just that -- a traditional stucco house over 150 years old-- that provides an intimate experience. We had the marinated fish appetizer and calamari (both excellent, calamari light and crunchy), catch of the day (red snapper and another I cannot recall! both excellent and NOT overcooked), and the Seafood Palm Beach, a creamy mix of seafood flavored with pernod. Reservations are recommended, but the second time we went (and we rarely go back for seconds) we sat at the bar. Don't miss the chance to chat with Johan, the bartender, and try out the house cocktail, which features rum, of course. You can google them and check out the menu. Prices very good for the island, and the food is just the best.
