Off the beaten track you’ll find this adorable local restaurant. Food is Aruba authentic, served in a quaint home built 150 years ago. Your delicious meal is enhanced by the serenades from the guitarist present.

You MUST go here! Our favorite meal during our visit! Super sweet, cozy, down-to-earth restaurant that serves authentic Aruban cuisine. During appetizers and dinner, our conversation mostly consisted of: “Mmm, this is SO good!”.
