The 4 of us arrived and were promptly seated. We ordered different appetizers: tuna tartare, onion soup, and snails. All of it very good. For the entrees, I had the grouper Romenesco & the others had the surf & turf which consisted of a lobster...More

Get there early and make reservations. One of our very favorites. The "keishia yena" is outstanding. Many of the meals are served on hot stones and you can "cook" the meal to your personal taste. Had the surf and turf (filet and lobster) - excellent....More

Papiamento has such lovely local dishes to offer. The keshi yena is very authentic Aruban, and it was delicious. The restaurant is so beautiful, you eat dinner in or outside of an old Cunucu house. Definitely recommend going here. We even visited twice in two...More

We had a lot of trouble finding Papiamento so it's a good place to go in a taxi. We were seated inside in a room that isn't used much. It was very dusty and had a mildew smell and the chairs were very uncomfortable. Despite...More

We have been here before and it's my wife's favorite. Tables around a pool outside under the stars is hard to beat. The staff is very friendly and extremely attentive from the moment you walk in. Here comes the hiccup, my wife ordered the filet...More

We ate here during our annual February Aruba trip to Bucuti. We were not impressed. The pool is the center of the courtyard, yet it is filled with leaves and just plain dirty looking. It doesn’t seem that anyone uses it or cleans it. The...More
