Nice local restaurant "off the beaten path." Very reasonably priced local seafood and delicacies. A refreshing change from the typical higher-priced restaurants.

Jose wears his heart on his sleeve. Rocky was excellent. The food here is great. And the flan .... sorry Miami .... sorry Madrid .... the best is at Gostogo. If you are in Aruba ... you have to go!
