This is in the middle of a residential area, but taxi driver knew exactly how to get to it. Fiesta Arubiano platter was shared by the 3 of us to get a true feel for Arubian food. I had to try the Higra Hasa (small cuts of beef liver with onions and green peppers) and was not disappointed. My husband enjoyed the whole red snapper, and "Auntie" had her usual coconut shrimp. The vanilla ice cream with rum raisins was awesome!
Wonderful outdoor dining in an intimate setting.

This place is fantastic! family a little hole in the wall away from all the high rises that definitely became my family and I's new favorite restaurant! The food takes a little bit of time to come out (even at calm hours) but its worth it for sure. All the dishes are homemade and its REAL food. Great atmosphere with live music. Will be coming back next time we are here for sure.

We were given the name of this restaurant from the guide of our city tour. We enjoyed a lovely evening listening to music while we enjoyed a wonderful meal. The catch of the day was very flavorful as were the other entrees ordered by others in our group. Very relaxing atmosphere.

We had an amazing meal here and I definitely recommend this place! Very authentic, delicious dishes but unfortunately pretty slow service (hence why I gave 4 stars). Also there's live entertainment which we really enjoyed.
