At 4:30 went back to have some halo halo they were closed already. Waste of time to figure it out,... More

The family who runs this restaurant is very kind and will accommodate special requests from the menu. We have had a pleasant meal or two every year we return. This is a hidden gem just behind Main Street.

We come to Aruba every year and eat here at least once during our trip! The place is not your 5 star place by the resort area so don't expect cushion seats and a/c! It's located on a second floor with open air and great authentic food! The owner is very accommodating and his daughters are always willing to suggest... More

I went to Kambal with my two teens January 2, 2013. The restaurant was open although the owner claim they had nothing but noodles $15, fish soup $12, and spring rolls $12 because it was a holiday and their supplier/supermarket was not open. I should have taken this as a sign and left except there were two other Filipinos eating... More

Came in for dinner, apparently later than usual business hours. First impression was a bit rough, as it was extremely hot in the restaurant, most lights were off, and the workers were playing cards and drinking. Turns out they were pretty much closed, but when our party of four came in they immediately greeted us with open arms and the... More

During our recent trip to Aruba, while wandering through Oranjestad, we happened to see a sidewalk sign advertising pansit. My husband is Filipino, so I knew this was a noodle dish. We looked up and saw a Filipino flag flying on the second floor balcony. We were looking for something different for lunch, that we were sure our teenage children... More

Brings you back to local etnic food and customs. Two block south from the cruise port. Climb one set of stairs to the second floor and has inside and outdoor sitting. Fast and friendly service with tasty local food.
