Quaint, old farm house in Aruba. Food was wonderful. We ate outside, which was perfect in the tropical air. There was a small house cat on the floor, near our table, which underscored the fact that we were NOT in the US. We thought the cat added to the Aruban "laid back" ambiance. Prices were quite reasonable for Aruba. Excellent value, and a memorable dining experience.

We are here on a Friday night and when we got there we thought that maybe we had made a mistake in choosing this restaurant since there was only 1 other couple there who were leaving. My husband had the pea soup and said it was very good. I had Keshi Yena which was excellent and my hubby had the Palm Beach seafood which he enjoyed. He had the flan for desert and said that it was excellent. We had the undivided attention of our waiter. Would recommend this place.

This was my personal favorite meal of the 10 day trip. I had the Keshi Yena and it was outstanding! DH had the Red Snapper and loved it. The service was very attentive. The atmosphere was cozy and the owners were friendly and interested in their customers. A must try!

Maybe it was extra nice because we were here just after the high season period (at the end of august, that is) so it was quiet and wel got all the attention we wanted from the people working there. The old house itself is quite nice and impressice but we were seated outside, nicely close to the bar, little lights all above us... very cosy!
The catch of the day was barracuda and it was GOOOOOOD. My husband had the goat stew an LOVED it. When they gave me the garlic & lemon marinade with my fish instead of the creole sauce, in the end I got both without any problem.
A very nice place to eat. We still have almost 2 weeks here so maybe we'll go again...

We went here for father's day with the family (group of 9, of which 2 babies and 1 kid). We thought the whole setting was very child friendly, but basically that might have been because there weren't hardly any customers! We had lots of space and they let the kids play in the complete section we had at our disposal. The waitress was kind to the kids as well.
Also the food was great, and I enjoyed everything, although not everyone in our group was as enthusiastic. Some minus point I would have to give for the timing. We came in at about 2PM, and only at 3:15 or so we had our meals, being the only large group, together with just two or three couples dining.
Overall this was way better than the over-crowded Driftwood we visited on Mother's day.

Although we had a dine around Aruba meal plan which included appetizer, entre, desert and coffee for two people we had no coffee and only one desert. However we did have one iced tea and one hot tea. The restaurant had the gall to charge us $3.00 EXTRA for these even though we did not have 2 coffees and only 1 desert. They seem to feel it's OK to rip people off.

Food was interesting, but a bit salty. House was interesting, but the air conditioning barely kept the dining room cool.

Insects and lizards inside the dining room.

House is interesting, but

A definite visit while in Aruba. This is the essence of Aruban cuisine. Any dish here would be recommended. The ambience is cozy and the staff are welcoming.
