Fodor's Review

Since the mid-1990s executive chef Ligia Maria has delighted diners with delicious homemade meals in a rustic and cozy traditional cunucu (country) house. This spot is one of the best bets on the island for authentic crioyo (local) cuisine. Try their version of Aruba's famous keshi yena—chicken, raisins, olives, cashews, peppers, and rice in a hollowed-out Gouda rind—or thick, hearty stobas (stews) of goat or beef. The fresh catch of the day with special sauces is a treat, and the stewed conch is also very good. There's live music some nights, giving the place a local party atmosphere.
