You MUST go here! Our favorite meal during our visit! Super sweet, cozy, down-to-earth restaurant that serves authentic Aruban cuisine. During appetizers and dinner, our conversation mostly consisted of: “Mmm, this is SO good!”.

Original plantation style building, well preserved. The dining room is somewhat noisy. Menu with several local dishes. Well prepared.

Food was terrible. Told waiter and he didn't care. The singer was nice person but could not sing. This is only place in 7 years visiting Aruba that we would never go back or recommend.
